i would advice that obesity is different than overweight, so check urBMI online at any site, and if its over 30.. then u have to go to a specilist to do u body analysis and see how much of fats, water, muscles.. u got in ur body and wat u should reduce, and wat u can and cannot eat, cuz online DOESNT HELP..

The mainstay of treatment for obesity is an energy-limited diet and increased exercise. In studies, diet and exercise programs have consistently produced an average weight loss of approximately 8% of total body mass on average (excluding study drop-outs). While not all dieters will be satisfied with this outcome, studies have shown that a loss of as little as 5% of body mass can create enormous health benefits. A more intractable therapeutic problem appears to be weight loss maintenance. Of dieters who manage to lose 10% or more of their body mass in studies, 80-95% will regain that weight within two to five years. It appears that the homeostatic mechanisms regulating body weight are very robust (see leptin, for example), and vigorously defend against weight loss. Much important research is now being devoted to determining what factors can improve the currently dismal weight loss maintenance rates.

I am a nutrition major at the university of central oklahoma. Portion control is the thing to do. cut your diet to 1200 calories a day. 1200 calories is a healthy way to lose weight. Add more fruits and veggies to the diet. The big thing is to do physicall activity. Burn more calories then you consume. If you do physical activity then you will lose the weight faster.
