If you need to lose weight, talk with your doctor about the options that are best for you. Most health experts agree that the best and safest way to lose weight is to modestly cut calories, eat a balanced diet, and exercise. People usually do best when they reduce their usual daily calorie intake or increase the calories they burn through exercise by 500 - 1,000 per day. This allows you to eat enough for good nutrition while losing about one to two pounds a week.
