SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS STRATEGIES

Most popular weight loss strategies: eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, low-calorie food

"The most-popular strategies employed by obese participants who reported trying to lose weight were eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, and switching to lower-calorie foods," notes a new paper about obese adults who were participants in the 2001–2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
