The women who followed a regimen of a 2,000 calories per day diet, daily exercise and weekly acupuncture treatment, lost on average, more than twice as much weight as those who only dieted and exercised, even if they did not comply exactly with the treatment plan.

    I wouldn’t generally comment to blogs however I liked this post therefore I was forced to do so. Straying off the topic slightly, what are your views about walking? Which is generally being put forward as the best exercise to burn fat.

  2. Walking is great exercise…every step you take helps move your blood and lymphatic circulation. And it is beneficial for your spine unlike running which is jarring to your spine (unless you run on a mini-tramp). Keep on walking and burn that fat!

    Thank you very much for the nice post!
    Many guys always have no idea why they couldn’t lose weight or have great shape. The point is they seeking for a silver bullet which brings them what they want at once meanwhile all they need to do is keep reading helpful articles like this as well as do the exercises.
