From the Doctor:

"In very basic terms, weight loss is based on a simple mathematics principles - less calories taken in - more calories burned off = weight loss.

Weight reduction occurs when through adequate exercise, the calories that the body burns off exceeds the calories taken in for that day. The missing link that makes this process productive and "do-able" is medication and supplementation.

Meal skipping and/or dramatic under eating will only promote fat gain and muscle (i.e. metabolism) loss - Not weight loss!

Eat multiple (3, 4 or 5) small meals each day to maintain a more robust metabolism. When you take in the appropriate number of calories through multiple small meals, then calories burning through exercise and physical activity will truly be fat burning!
