Great article. One thing that bugs me though is that almost everyone says the same blanket statement, "Eat Less Exercise More". This is just not the case for everyone. I have clients who are not eating enough calories to meet the demands of their new program and are at a standstill with their weight loss or even worse, they are starting to gain weight because their body has gone into starvation mode, has dropped their metabolism to a crawl and is holding on to every ounce of fat it can. And when all they read from the "experts" is "eat less" it makes convincing them to eat more very difficult.
