Calories in, calories out. A well-balanced diet requires lots of careful consideration, but the narrow science of weight loss is : You simply need to burn more calories than you consume.

It’s diet, not exercise. Exercise burns calories, and there’s no question that exercise is important to overall health, but it’s not the key to losing weight. You can’t outwork a bad diet.

“Discipline” isn’t the solution. Psychologically, if you are convincing yourself that "discipline" will be your means of eating well, you might be setting yourself up for failure.

Recognize the obstacles to good habits. While good habits are more effective than discipline in leading to long-term dietary success, it’s nevertheless important to recognize the obstacles we face.

  • We are wired to eat

  • Abundance is a double-edged sword

What Next. Start with analyzing your diet by making an honest attempt to record everything you consume (including water) for seven days. Don’t change anything during this time. Also record, quantity and the time of consumption. During this period, it may also be a good idea to write down how many hours you sleep, and maybe even make a general daily journal entry detailing daily activity, schedule, how you feel, etc. This seven day practice may help you identify where you can make some shifts in habits. Guess what? You’ve just made an incredibly positive step towards making weight loss success a reality. Take time to enjoy your journey!
