    drinking lots of water helps. Fruits are OK but sometimes don't always help. Almonds I found really good and a handful of them help but willpower is the biggest issue with most people.

    With any transition from a mid to high level carbohydrate diet to a lesser carb diet you will get tiredness, headaches and flatulence. It generally lasts about 2 days. Once you get through that you can do anything!

    Lift weights.....the heavier the better. You will not look huge and bulky.

    Good point.

    ACSM provide good quality books too. These are scientific and valid in the field.

    I have never seen long distance runners who are fat. If weight loss is what you want you might consider running. It will probably improve your aerobic activities in bed too!

    Another approach, which I've observed in others, is to to get so completely obsessed with some choice of exercise that it doesn't matter what you eat afterwards.

    Perhaps this is not a practical choice for many people, I know, but I've witnessed many people in dragonboat and outrigger canoe teams eat like horses post-training and still keep in very good shape. Though there is also the tendency to rebound if they suddenly stop training and their appetites don't slow down at the same time.

    Ex-professional sports people are a great example.

    In addition to that, I want to know how this study was conducted, sample size, survey or experiment, all the nitty gritty details.

    swimming is great, especially when you are overweight, all other exercise is a strain on your knees

    Would you a silver spoon with that?

    Search for it up yourself Swimming must be one of the most widely-researched sports in existence. There are plenty of papers on it.

    OP has indicated that she is doing Pilates by watching Youtube. Unlikely that she wants to spend over twenty thousand dollars a year on exercise!
