weight-loss diets, statistics show that most people who lose weight on a diet
regain that weight, and sometimes they gain more. The best ways to stay healthy

anything you want on moderate diet programs, just not as much as you want.
Balance and calorie control are what's important—you don't eat too much of one
thing or too little of another.
