20-lbs weight lossTo lose weight naturally, you don’t need to count calories. Instead, I recommend that you learn about foods that keep you fuller longer and discover foods that you can eat more of while still losing weight. This is my approach that I outline in my book, Alpine Weight Loss Secrets.

But if your goal is to lose the last 5, 10 or even 30 lbs by a certain date, then you need to change your approach and put mathematical science behind your efforts.

First-hand, I see the strategies that work and those that are the biggest mistakes, whether you have to lose 10 lbs, 50 lbs or 100+ lbs.
