    Losing weight is simple. Eat Less, move more.
    For as simple as it is, it’s the HARDEST thing to do.

    *A combination of eating healthy and exercising is THE best approach. Exercise not only burns calories, but it relieves stress. And stress is the reason many people over eat. Let exercise be your stress reliever. Not food.* 💗💗💗

    What the video said your bsr is the biggest factor in weight loss, but it failed to mention that increased muscle mass increases your bsr (which is only built by you guessed it, exercise)

    as they say, only 30% of weight loss is dependent on physical activity and 70% depends on diet

  11. Deysi Miller on November 19, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    To reduce my waist, I followed a natural method and managed to lose 20 pounds of excess weight.

  12. ManuelBaut104 on November 19, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Gregg doucette should react to this

  13. Kian Mar on November 19, 2021 at 1:09 pm

  14. Vinay kumar on November 19, 2021 at 1:13 pm

  15. Katie Dico on November 19, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    So how do we lose weight the best way?

  16. allenissoepic36 on November 19, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    I smell buzzfeed in this video

  17. L.O! VE on November 19, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    That’s why I workout anaerobic/aerobic together in a fasted state 🙂 along with the keto diet and yep fasting 🤯

  18. 진Jin on November 19, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    Wow. No mention of strength training to boost metabolism

  19. spunch bop on November 19, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    What this documentary is saying is to diet.

  20. Carlos Quen on November 19, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    So what should I eat

  21. José Manuel on November 19, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    whats that video where you click it but save it then its not there like a misclick

  22. Daniswara on November 19, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    Researching exercise while you body looks just like a blob doesn’t sound convincing to me. Try to exercise first then research it, you blob!!

  23. Loli_ on November 19, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    Exercising might not be the best way to lose weight, but it’s great for your cardiovascular and mental health which is also important.

  24. Correct yellow man on November 19, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    The goal of exercise isn’t weight loss at all. Its to increase endurance, strength, speed, flexibility, mobility. Overall making your body function and move more efficiently.

    Only controlling your DIET will = weight loss.

  25. Luiza Deda on November 19, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    Hear me out . Cardio .

  26. Noof Taheri on November 19, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    Alright.

  27. CUT THE FAT on November 19, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    seriously, losing weight is the hardest when your family cooks delicious food

  28. Shifah Shipher on November 19, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    If you want to lose weight don’t focus on that fact, eat all the food that is not forbidden by God and make exercising your daily routine plus don’t over do it ‘the eating part’ you could eat just not to starve, and that will not just be easier but it will do it, with the will of God.

  29. Joana Valdez on November 19, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    Welp… this just unmotivated me from going to the gym tomorrow.

  30. the 2 week diet now on November 19, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    I managed to lose weight thanks to a natural method that I followed and now I weigh 10 pounds less.

  31. ManuelBaut104 on November 19, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    Well this time science is wrong 😂

  32. Juan Perez on November 19, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    This is so simple: Stop eating garbage. Stop eating like you are a bear about to hibernate. And, yes, do exercise. However, we live in an increasingly self-indulgent society AND the companies that are more likely to benefit from overconsumption are the ones who certainly champion and push the whole idea of "body positivity" so that we do not stray from that lucrative consumption.

  34. LoFi Carl on November 19, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    It’s all about calories in/calories out. Exercise can increase calories out, and dieting is what controls calories in.

  35. sHam Artist on November 19, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    literally just diet, just have a good diet and workout

  36. Daughter of the King on November 19, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    ❤️Jesus lived the life we couldn’t live and died the death we deserve. Repent of your sins and trust in Him💜

  37. Sajad Sir on November 19, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    This video useless honestly

  38. J 941 R on November 19, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    Dont listen to fox brothers, they want you to be weak and flabby. Be strong and not flabby. Lift weights, it’s good for you and it feels great

  39. ZmanTheBeast on November 19, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    I feel like the likes are from obese people so they don’t have to workout

  40. ThoughtCrime on November 19, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    Excercise is a great way to put on weight (muscle).

  41. Isaac Baykara on November 19, 2021 at 1:41 pm

    You don’t realise how long a minute is until when your exercising

  42. Gus Maia on November 19, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    this is the equivalent to saying that working isn’t the best way to get money. you need to work to earn money but you won’t get any money if you spend more than you earn

  43. fluffy boy24 on November 19, 2021 at 1:44 pm

    No more eating

  44. Madi Clemments on November 19, 2021 at 1:47 pm

    Literally all u have to do to lose weight is stop eating so much. But yet it’s so hard

  45. Sam Boriboun on November 19, 2021 at 1:47 pm

    So move less eat less lol

  46. Taxy on November 19, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    So what this video is saying guys is that it is still possible to lose weight while exercising, but it’s just way to hard. Spending more time exercising like 1-2 hours everyday day can result an energy boost. But doing that alone which means not dieting while exercising, it doesn’t work like that. It is all about the diet. Like when you eat 4 pizzas and 3 cans of sodas and beer which still result in consuming 2,400 calories in days. So that means you need to have 1-2 plates of very small meals, or just starve yourself while exercising.

  47. Rebekah Lovitt on November 19, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    This makes a lot of sense because as a quadriplegic, I can’t really do a lot of exercise, but I’m still at a very slim and healthy weight because of what I eat.

  48. Shanggoes on November 19, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    Bruh stop, you’re giving me reasons to quit

  49. Louis I on November 19, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    All you need is a calorie deficit and atleast an HR of workout to loose weight. I’ve been jogging 3 miles 5x a week and I’ve already lost weight
