I know most individuals looking for dietary information for the purposes of losing weight (i.e. looking for the best diet plan for them) don't want to hear this but DIETING DOES NOT WORK. One must commit to altering the number of calories they consume by the number of calories consumed during the normal functioning of the body (the basal metabolic rate, BMR) plus those burned doing some form of exercise. For all intents and purposes one can eat whatever they want as long as the calories consumed do not exceed those burned. Now of course that is not the smartest way to live longer and healthier. Living longer and healthier is the goal of supplementing ones diet with PROVEN nutrients.
