Weight loss refers to all forms of weight loss techniques including diet, exercise, supplements, and strategies aimed at losing weight. We don’t sell products, rather we fact-check all that weight loss advice out there and connect the dots so you don’t have to.

Generally, simple rules like “calories in v calories out”, “small meals”, “regular cardio and weight lifting”, and “a mix of cooked and raw foods of different colors with a balance of micronutrients and macronutrients” is the advice. However, our findings go much deeper (and citations are always included). Have a look for yourself below.
