Question: What is the best way to ensure I lose weight?
Answer: Weight loss diets frequently come in fads. You have the high-fat diet, the low-fat diet, the low carbohydrate diet, the high carbohydrate diet. Well as a matter of fact, when you do studies long term, you don't really see any long term advantage to any of these diets. At six months and certainly at a year the weight loss of all these diets is pretty much the same.
You have to eat every day for the rest of your life. So the most important diet is the diet that you can sustain over long periods of time. And that usually means changing the timing of your eating and your portions rather than going on a single food, such as low >carbohydrates.
