Nutritionist Weight Loss Tips : Separating Facts from Fiction

Wondering how to lose weight using weight loss pills?

Myth: Weight loss is guaranteed by eating sugar-free and fat-free foods
Truth: Fat-free, sugar-free snacks can satisfy your hunger while helping you keep your calories in check and meet your nutrient requirements. However, fat-free or sugar-free do not translate to energy-free! If you want to lose weight, keep a count on the number of calories that you consume, as long as you can burn it off with exercise, it shouldn’t be a problem. All things sugar-free hold a bitter reality.
