Weight Control, Exercise and Nutrition

Some people who want to lose weight make the mistake of focusing exclusively on calorie-intake and counting calories. Although keeping track of energy intake is vital, energy expenditure is also important. So too is diet nutrition, because when we maintain a healthy body and metabolism, we burn calories faster. In short, if you want to lose weight, make sure you eat a healthy diet in order to obtain all your necessary nutrients.
