We used to think of weight loss as calories in vs. calories out. As it turns out, it's far more complicated than that. Weight is an intricate interplay between genetics, nutrition, sleep, stress levels, physical activity, age, ethnicity, medications, and more.
Want to trim down? Eating a diet rich in plants, exercising regularly, getting adequate sleep and taming stress, provide a firm foundation for shedding pounds. Beyond that, there's plenty of room for personalization. Healthy, sustainable weight loss can look very different for different people, but rarely involves magic pills, excessive restriction, or wacky diets.
Now that we've set the record straight, here are our top finds on managing your weight safely. Happy reading!
