How Do You Really Lose Weight Besides The Common Advice To Eat Less And Exercise More?
You can really lose a lot of weight by actually putting this ‘common advice’ into practice!
Sure, eating less and exercising more is common advice, but how many people actually follow it? Very few. Is eating less good for you? (20% less than TDEE, I am not suggesting starvation)

Yes. Then why don’t people eat less?
Temptation: It’s not what you eat; it’s what comes your way!!
Why don’t we exercise more when we know it’s good for us? Because we really don’t know how good it is for us!
We have a general idea that ‘working out’ can make us healthy but do you really know how good it is for us?
We were meant to ‘Move.’ Movement is in our DNA.
Here are some facts about exercising as given in the book ‘Spark’ by Dr. John Ratey,
-Exercise increases levels of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine-important transmitters that traffic in thoughts and emotions.
-Moving our muscles produces proteins that travel through the blood stream and into the brain, where they play pivotal roles in the mechanisms of our highest thought processes. They bear names such as insulin-like growth factors (IGF-1) and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF)
So basically, exercise has a direct positive effect on your brain, and research has shown that you need only ~30 min every day. Is that too much to ask?
In conclusion, the common advice of eating less and working out more is great, but taking action is not common.
