If you're having trouble losing weight, the NYT has a solution for you based on new research: eat less food already!.|
The research shows that people who are "having trouble" losing weight are, quite simply, not obeying the "golden rule" of weight loss: consume less calories than you burn.
?The message of our work is really simple,? although not agreeable to hear, Melanson said. ?It all comes down to energy balance,? or, as you might have guessed, calories in and calories out. People ?are only burning 200 or 300 calories? in a typical 30-minute exercise session, Melanson points out. ?You replace that with one bottle of Gatorade.?
