  • It could be, if all nutritional requirements are met

      For years, many have endorsed the straightforward concept of maintaining a calorie deficit for achieving fat loss. However, almost 90% of obese individuals who lose weight seem to eventually gain it back. And another layer in this discussion is the fact that most deficits of this sort might cause very little difference in accumulated fat, but instead cause reduction in fat-free mass. Because our goal is to reduce accumulated fat, this process becomes a little counterproductive.

      Also, not everyone reacts well to the concept of counting calories, especially those with eating disorders — which can be exceedingly common in obese individuals. So, it seems like there’s much more nuance is needed in approaching weight loss, and it would probably need a significant lifestyle change instead of just a mere calorie deficit.

      What do you think? Where should the focus be? Resistance training and gaining muscle? Cutting out fatty and processed foods without focusing on calories? Or other changes paired with a calorie deficit?

      Reducing calorie intake, eating potatoes, more of vegetables along side regular exercise like skipping, jogging, brisk walking while the individual is maintaining the same pace can go along way in reducing Obesity.
      Reducing the quantity of meal intake to that of a child can help in achieving weight loss 80 % vegetables and 20% cooked meal

      There are many factors that helps to control obesity and calorie tracking is just one of them. If other nutritional requirements are not met, there shall be no weight control. So eating vegetables, reduce fat intake, drinking more water than juice together with physical exercise will help cut down your weight.

      I believe the best approach in dealing with weight loss should always encompass both nutrition and physical activity.
      Dietary changes alone are not sufficient especially with physical inactivity, if you’re to see significant change take on a healthy diet (see a nutritionist) and have a strict exercise regime (see a physical therapist) to help guide you.
