The best weight loss program is just one dimension of wellness
The best weight loss program is going to focus on your health first. Most of the weight loss programs that are advertised on TV and the internet focus on quick weight loss that is not going to last very long.
A good weight loss program is just a dimension of wellness that will focus on nutrition first because if you nourish your body with what it needs, weight loss will naturally follow.
There are 3500 calories in one pound. The best weight loss program would recommend a 1 - 2 pound weight loss per week.
In order to lose 1 pound a week, you will have to cut 3500 calories whether it's from exercise or food. That means you need to burn 500 extra calories a day through exercise or cut 250 calories from your food intake and burn 250 calories extra through daily activities.
Since a 30 minute walk for a 150 pound 5'7" woman burns 100 calories, it will take approximately an hour and a half of walking to burn 250 calories. Wow, do you have that much time?

"How can I lose weight if I don't have energy to exercise?"
Maybe you're too tired to exercise because your body needs a nutrient that supplies energy that you haven�t been getting from the foods you�ve been eating.
The best weight loss program is a wellness and nutrition plan that will supply your body with everything it needs to function well, including energy to exercise. It�s a permanent solution to your weight problem that will work!
The Zone Diet
is one of those diet plans that will naturally provide you with energy and stop carbohydrate cravings at the same time. Once you get used to following the simple guidelines, the weight will naturally come off although it will be a slow and safe loss of 1 -1 � pounds per week. It works according to the science of how your body works which is to balance your protein and carbohydrate intake.
The bottom line
On my quest for good health, I have discovered that the best weight loss program involves eating foods with vitamins and minerals that nourish and renew my cells so that my body works the way it was designed to work. It also involves eliminating things in my diet that I know are bad for me, such as salt, processed foods, sugar and flour.
I've realized that the primary purpose for food is not to make me
feel better emotionally
but to simply give me the energy I need to live my life.
