    Well I assumed that study wasn't particularly accurate and still pretty much assuming because I pretty much didn't get past the picture of the sweedish girls.

    The only thing that works: calorie deficit. Eat the foods you enjoy ... just less of them. Calorie restriction beats food restrictions any day of the week.

    I got on board the Beachbody train in January. Did Power 90 and lost 34lbs in 90 days, then started doing P90X in April and lost another 16lbs.

    Lost exactly 50lbs in 5 months working out, eating smart and drinking Shakeology. Now my goals have changed and I'm putting on mass. Have never felt better and now am a Coach with Team Beachbody and get to help others reach their goals! It's a fantastic circle :)

    You need to do what makes you comfortable and, as others have said, what you'll stick with. For me, the home workouts worked best, and matching them with an accountability group and good nutrition/all-natural supplements, I've never been in better shape in my life.

    Accountability and something you can live long term with.

    ---

    As far as strategy, I side mostly with Dreamliner on this one. Calroie deficit will work for dropping weight. Always.

    In general, I am anti-supplement. If you need a suppliment to meet your nutritional needs, then what you are eating is wrong to begin with.

    Basically, supplements produce expensive pee.

    I use supplements and have no problem with that. Yes there is a lot of garbage in the industry and most of it is unnecessary. Still I find a few very useful and I feel better when taking them than when not.

    just because it makes one feel better does not imply effectiveness----you might feel better when you take them for reasons 100% unrelated to their contents.

    Plus, don't discount placebo effect. It's arguably more responsible for making people feel better than drugs or supplements.

    Placebo is REAL---I mean it REALLY changes even brain chemistry----which proves power of mind and attitude.

    So---save some money and take a sugar pill and call it supplements!!!!!
