Patient discussion about pound

Q. i am all confused !!! there are so many kinds of diets and guides for loosing pounds , what should i choose

A. the best but hard one- going to a nutritionist with another friend that want to loose weight, build up a program, start doing physical activity . it will be hard, long, but worth it.
don't forget the friend, it's an important part!

Q. i need an easy way to loss pounds ... any suggestions ?

A. there are fasting routines you can do, but they are not worth it especially since they force a lot of water loss and not fat loss.

I would suggest you change up your eating habits and start exercising frequently. Remember to include resistance training 3 times a week minimum. Even going for walks helps.
