TODAY'S DIETER is faced with a plethora of weight-loss methods, each promising better results than the next. However, simple observation reveals that a method that works for one person may not work for another person. When choosing a weight-loss method, how can you know beforehand which method will deliver the results you desire?

We live in a physical world that is governed by natural laws of physics, chemistry, etc., for example, the law of gravity. These laws are absolutely reliable. In other words, you can always count on them to operate the way they are supposed to operate. 

Is there a Law of Weight Loss that is equally reliable? Can a Law of Weight Loss be defined that is 100% guaranteed to work for everyone, all the time…no exceptions? Yes, such a law can be defined!

Regardless of which method you choose to lose weight, if your method doesn't conform to the Law of Weight Loss your results will be haphazard and may even not see any results at all! And, you will have wasted your time, energy, money and possibly endangered your health.

Here is the Law of Weight Loss: You will lose weight when your body absorbs fewer calories than your body burns.

Simple Math

No matter what type of food you eat, or what type of exercise you perform, or how often you eat, or how you combine foods, or what supplements you take, or how many grams of protein, fat and carbs you eat, or the state of your genetics, hormones and metabolism, a weight-loss method must meet the conditions of the Law of Weight Loss to be successful. 

Some weight-loss methods may satisfy the conditions of the Law of Weight Loss, causing you to absorb fewer calories than you burn, thereby allowing you to achieve your weight-loss goals. But, other methods may not satisfy these conditions. How can you tell beforehand which method will satisfy the conditions of the Law of Weight Loss?

Looking closer at the Law of Weight Loss reveals that satisfying its conditions is a matter of simple math. You must have fewer calories going into your body than are going out of your body. But, how do you know that? If you could just guess the correct balance of these calories, you would never have a weight problem in the first place.

In order to do simple math you need to work with specific numbers. Can you imagine trying to manage your bank account without looking at your specific number of dollars and cents? It's the same with managing your weight. The number of calories going in and out of your body is called your energy balance. Studies show that people are generally poor at correctly guessing their energy balance.

Where to Start

A good weight-management program will give you specific numbers to follow based on your individual body composition and energy balance. These numbers usually involve your specific calorie intake, resting metabolic rate and activity level. Properly balancing these numbers will satisfy the conditions of the Law of Weight Loss, thereby allowing you to lose weight without relying on drugs, supplements, surgery, restricted foods, unbalanced diets or strenuous exercise.

In addition, monitoring and modifying the numbers in a good weight-management program will allow you to form new lifestyle habits that will make keeping the weight off automatic for life!

Where can you find a weight-management program that provides you with all of this information?
