I need to lose 65 pounds before I can have a healthy BMI. I have been dieting since I was 8 and have gotten to my largest ever at 220 pounds. My body parts are already sagging and I’m scared of it happening even more if I lose this weight. Will exercising along the way help to reduce this? Jane. [via Ask Questions]

If you have not already, read the lose 65 pounds in 3 months post. I am not sure what you mean that your “body parts are already sagging,” but moderate exercise is always good for you. Specifically, the combination of the fat-burning cardio and sugar detox, can really kick your weight-loss effort into an overdrive.

That having been said, since you still need to lose 65 pounds despite the fact that you have been trying to lose weight for a long time, seems to suggest that you have not yet found the diet that works for you. If my assumption is correct, The 4-Hour Body book explains how to follow a very simple diet without depriving yourself. It also contains a simple exercise plan designed to help people lose weight and gain muscle.

In short, focus on changing your eating habits. The trick is to find a diet that you can follow long term without depriving yourself of your favorite foods. Why is this important? Because if you feel constantly deprived, you will not be able to follow a diet long enough to lose weight. More importantly, restrictive diets do not works because even if you somehow find a way to lose a lot of weight, without permanently changing your eating habits and finding a diet that works for you, you will gain the lost weight back.

Diets do not work – have you heard that before? I have. Many times. Is it true? Yes, it is. Most diets do not work because people approach dieting as a temporally fix to lose weight as quickly as possible. They think they can eat skinless chicken breast and brown rice for a little while, lose weight and be done with it. It does not work that way.

You can lose weight, but as soon as you go back to eating the same foods you have been eating in the past, the weight comes back, which is why it is extremely important to change your eating habits permanently. It is not about dieting and exercising to lose 65 pounds. It is about eating healthy and being fit by being physically active and eating good food.
