Q:  The question I get all the time.“I’m trying to lose weight, tried several diets and not having any luck. What would you recommend?”

A:  In my opinion, there’s only one true way to lose weight. Eat fewer calories per day than your body uses. Everyone burns calories just by being alive, it’s called a basal rate. Once you find this rate out, you can plan the amount of food and exercises needed to burn more calories than you consume. (Shape Magazine’s website has great tools and a community to help you find this out). Now, if you have a lot of weight to lose (more than 25lbs) you’re likely to see loose skin and sagging where it was once needed. With proper nutrition, your body has the chance of reducing this occurrence to some extent – the more weight you have to lose, the less your body can do to return to a desired state – and I would obviously recommend my firming crystallines as a take along with your work out to add to water.
