Exercise and Fitness
I am overweight and I`m not sure by how much. I am trying to go on a diet but I don`t have the will power. I am thinking of using one of those advertised weight loss items or going on a crash diet. Which would be better for me?
In order to best address your question, I would need to know your current weight, your height, and whether you are a male or a female. I do not support advertised weight loss products or crash dieting in order to lose weight. A balance of regular exercise and healthy eating has proven to be the safest and most effective way to achieve long-term weight loss. You may wish to check back with our web site in order to learn how to begin an exercise program.
