Why Smart Eating, Exercise and MyNetDiary Work for Weight Loss

Fad diets are so out of the loop, at least according to a new study published online in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine. Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center analyzed data from over 4,000 obese people who participated in a survey by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention between 2001 - 2006.

The study looked at how these individuals tried and succeeded at losing weight. Those who were most successful did two very simple things: ate less fat and exercised. A significant number of people also lost weight when they joined a structured weight loss plan, crediting the importance of guidance.

However, those who didn't lose weight were the ones who participated in a variety of fad diets (liquid diets, nonprescription weight loss pills, diet foods/products, etc.).

More than a third of Americans are obese, and 50-70 percent of them are trying to lose weight. And just a 5 percent reduction in weight can improve one's health.
