Best Answer

To safely lose weight and keep it off, combine a balanced diet with plenty of exercise. Following the USDA food pyramid is the best and safest way. If you lose the weight quickly, it is hard on your organs, and most people will gain the weight back. When you lose weight without exercising, you lose muscle. When you gain the weight back, you gain fat. Be sure and consult your doctor.
