We have all wanted to drop a few pounds and wondered the best way to go about it. Endless new diets abound. So we try them. We are bombarded by ads from weight loss companies like Jennie Craig, Weight Watchers, etc... We hear about the 'Miami Beach Diet' or the 'Atkins Diet'. I have even heard about Vegans that gained weight b/c they ate too much pasta. What to do? Today while listening to National Public Radio they reported the results of a study that said the secret to weight loss is not a diet, but simply consuming less calories than one expends. Isn't that an amazing concept? Eat less, wiegh more? Apparently however people altered their food intake as long as the calories were less taken in than expended weight loss was documented. I have got to do that. I have to monitor my caloric intake.
