There’s a camp fond of (very vociferously) claiming that weight loss is a simple math equation: calories in vs. calories out. Just eat less, and move more, and you’ll be all set: if it doesn’t work, you’re just not cutting calories hard enough. It’s technically true that calories determine weight gain or loss.

The Paleo diet is also high in fiber, thanks to the many fruits, vegetables and nuts present in it. Fiber is great for weight loss because it contains very few calories but it can fill you up, helping control hunger and cravings.

Most people can lose weight on almost any diet plan that restricts calories — at least in the short term. The goal of the Mayo Clinic Diet is to help you keep weight off permanently by making smarter food choices, learning how to manage setbacks and changing your lifestyle.

Not only can PhenQ reduce your weight by burning fat but it also can enhance your mood. It sounds a little funny, doesn’t it? I had the same feeling when I first read its effects.
