    What tips would you give to help people lose weight? Can they and Whose fault is it anyway?

    Do you think losing weight is possible on a permanent basis?  What do you think is the best way to go about it? Do things like genetics actually play a part?

    Hello, to lose weight you need to watch what you eat. Do not eat after 6-7pm because you won't be doing any physical activity that will make you burn calories. Do not eat at fast foods, avoid drinking soda(syrup and sugar) or drinking juice(high amount of sugar). Eat in portions don't eat until you feel full, just eat what you need. Eat when you feel hungry, not whenever you want, because you need to allow your body to consume what you have. Try to reduce carbs because they will turn into sugar which is bad for you.

    Yes I think genetics plays a role on it, but you can always shape yourself into health food and good eating patterns, because if you know you come from a family that gains weight fast, you should know what not to eat, after reading around and following few tips and advice.

    I hope this helps,

    Genetics can influence your ability to gain or not gain weight.  It should not be used as an excuse.  we all know that "real exercises" and "real healthy eating" will help you get healthier and in the process lose weight. i recommend my article

    To lose weight you people should avoid sugar and refined carbs.  Eat lean protein, fruit, veggies, and healthy fats.  Eat enough protein to keep your metabolism going and to maintain muscle mass.  Exercise, especially resistance training also helps.  I've written several hubs about this if you're interested.

    Genetics do play a part, but a small one. I have lost over 50 pounds and just got past my plateau. We need to make permanent habit and lifestyle changes for permanent weight control. We need to eat more fiber and less fat. This means discovering new foods to enjoy. We need to get in the habit of drinking more water and actively pursue different types of exercise until we find some that are fun. It takes a lot of work, but it can be done. I've written several hubs on the secrets to my success.

    Firstly get rid of all the weight myths and stop blaming things for it. Try to boost your metabolism so that you burn more calories than you normally would. Also avoid fatty and sugary foods. Drink lots of water and exercise more. Losing weight is definately possible on a permanent basis and things like genetics do play a part but stop blaming them and go about you goal.

    I believe genetics can play a part in but that you don't have to be overweight. I myself was nearly one hundred pounds over weight for quite a while when I finally decided to do something about it. I've lost one hundred pounds and have kept it off. So obviously it is possible to loose weight on a permanent basis as long as you change your lifestyle.

    Based on my experiance losing 125 pounds after years of trying and failing, I would say that the best way to lose weight and keep it off is to gradually modify your eating habits eliminating 500 calories per day until you reach your ideal target weight. Each time your weight loss slows, you subtract an additional 500 calories until you reach your goal. This requires motivation, determination and patience.
