Please recommend a diet/exercise plan that works for someone who works constantly?

Diet exercise plan: I struggle with this constantly myself. But, over the past year, have lost over 30 lbs. My "secret" has been to: find some way to get in a walk or 20-30 min a day. Limit my portion size. Stay away as much as possible from bread, rice, and pasta (this includes pizza, hoagies, cake, donuts). You only need to be good 90% of the time. And not to weigh myself more than once a week. Try a fitbit. ...Read more

I have been going to gym regularly since last 1.5yrs still not able to reach my desired weight. What could be wrong my diet or exercise plan. Thanks?

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
