“Decreasing food intake is much more effective than increasing physical activity to achieve weight loss. If you want to achieve a 300 kcal energy deficit you can run in the park for 3 miles or not eat 2 ounces of potato chips.”
~ Samuel Klein, MD at Washington

Though exercise and diet together are the ideal way to lose weight in a healthy manner, this quote shows the importance of diet vs exercise in order to loose. Without a well-rounded and nutritious meal plan exercise alone will not be enough. Some studies have proven that people will lose more weight through only dieting than through only exercising. What and how much we eat can make an overall significant difference in our ability to reach our desired goal when losing weight, and how fast we get there.
It is our desire to share well researched and resourceful diet plans that are healthy and optional without prejudice to any specific diet. We encourage anyone interested in starting such a plan to consult with their family physician first. It is our hope that this section is a resourceful tool that provides encouragement and support to a person looking to achieve better health through following a diet plan.
