In brief: Pick lowest calories

Obesity can be prevented or overcome by a permanent change in lifestyle and in personal outlook.
If a person eats fewer calories than he needs to live on each day, his body will use the stored fuel (fat). If a person exercises more than he did before, but does not start eating more calories, then his body will also use up the fat (stored fuel). Easier said than done, but definitely possible to do.
