In brief: Eat fewer 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 up his stored fuel (fat). This works even if a person does not exercise. The tricky part is finding very low-calorie foods or drinks, and having the willpower to stick to a plan. A doctor can help evaluate a diet plan.
