Yes, it is. Food is the component that largely determines whether we are gaining or losing weight. The key to losing weight is focusing on eating foods that promote weight loss. If you can change what you eat and how you eat it you will be able to lose weight. Initially changing your eating habits may cause some level of stress. But it can be done. Once you know the nutritional differences between processed and whole foods, you have a choice. The bottom line is always the same: to lose weight, we must consume fewer calories than we burn. It is a gradual process. To keep it off, we must adopt permanent lifestyle changes. I did it and I lost 91 pounds.

The key to successful weight loss and fat loss is a commitment to making permanent changes in your diet and exercise habits. The researchers point out that 97 million Americans are overweight and obese, which can put them at higher risk of developing chronic conditions like osteoarthritis.
