  1. I am always looking at ways to keep the weight and fat off my body. I did just read an article that said just what you did. Exercise is not enough! I’ve seen people be so diligent about their exercise and then reward themselves with an ice cream or cookie… and then wonder why the pounds don’t fall off. I don’t have the problem of over-exercising. I have the dusty equipment in the basement to prove it. I know it has everything to do with what you put into your body.
    So many people are deceived that they are doing good things for themselves by consuming low-fat, natural, sugar-free etc. foods. I’m glad you included this in your list.
    The water part was news. I knew it wasn’t good to drink water from plastic that has been heated (left in a hot car, microwave etc. I have a filter for water in my sink.
    I’m sure this is a popular topic because everywhere you look it’s aba, abs, abs 🙂 Thanks for revealing the top 5!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Robin. 🙂
      The main reason people don’t succeed in losing weight is because they don’t make changes to their diets.
      Even if you do not want to try out hardcore exercises, you can still go jogging, walking or even cycling and lose weight!

      Cheers,

  2. Hi,
    Very informative post!

    I agree with you on the topics you chose to discuss.
    People who exercise but eat junk food cancels out pretty much what they exercised.

    I used to choose the low fat foods but when I realized it wasn’t doing much for me, I decided to choose the whole foods rather than prepackaged foods.

    Water is very beneficial to weight loss. What do you think of filtered water systems? Is there any health related effects on them?

    I love to sleep. On weekends, I know I get my eight hours. During the week, I may get 6-7 hours depending on if I am working or not. I agree, your body needs time to heal.

    Thanks,
    Sofia

    1. Hello, Sofia.

      Water filter systems are great for drinking pure water and I have one at my place too.
      I would recommend ro water purifier since I use that too!

  3. Wow, I really got tons of info from this article. I have been trying to eat healthy for over a year. At first I was trying to get away from as much fat as possible, bought tons of low fat products! like milk, and others. But as you said, it’s true that good fat actually is really good for us. I feel it’s more about the balance, variety of healthy food. And small portion too!

    1. Thank you so much for reading, Andrew.
