    I'm not 'fat' so to speak, but need to watch it cos I'm short. What's the most effective way to lose weight apart from eating salad and fruit all day?

    Dieting properly? Salads and fruit won't make you lose weight.

    High quality proteins, fats and carbohydrates equalling 500 calories below your maintenance with additional anaerobic exercise equals fat loss and muscle growth. Good times. Weight loss is so damn easy if you know what you're doing. I'm away for the rest of the evening, but I'll find some good resources for you.

    But seriously, diet is pretty much the main factor in losing weight.

    You don't have to eat just salad and fruit all day, either.

    Probably the most basic way is to work out your BMR (there are websites for this) and eat roughly 300-500 calories underneath that.

    I would suggest trying a low-carb diet but I'll probably get mauled by other people on here.

    I'd agree with a low carb diet. I use it when I cut. Dieting, however, is a personal thing, there is'n t specific rule for the braod population. A person needs to experiment and find what works best for them. But many people respond to low-carb.

    It's been shown that dieting does not work long term for weight loss.
    What does work is changing your diet and exercising - that is the best way to keep weight off for as long as you can keep it up.

    Eat fruit all day is actually quite bad for you.

    Go do some proper research on a balanced diet and do some exercise. It really is not ******* rocket science.

    Well, yes, I agree.

    Obviously if someone diets down and loses a few pounds, then goes back to over-eating they'll just put the weight back on again.

    Eating less for a few weeks or whatever to lose some weight and then increasing what you eat to maintain that weight will work.

    It definitely takes a lifestyle change, maybe I worded my original post wrongly?
