2000 CALORIES, 30 MINUTES

I caught the last few seconds of a radio ad for a weight loss product yesterday. It stated that a max of 2000 calorie per day intake and 30 minutes of walking each day was required to insure success. HELLO! If an adult male consumes less then 2000 calories per day combined with 30 minutes of exercise  such as walking per day he will lose weight. Save your money!  You should not have to be a member of MENSA to realize this! I believe it is 1800 calories per day for women. The 2000 calories should consist of the proper amounts of good quality protein, fats and carbs.
NBC this am had a gentleman as a guest who lost weight and inches, reduced his cholesterol by eating all his meals at a fast food restaurant. I sometimes meet friends in the am to have breakfast at a fast food restaurant. My choice is always an egg white on a muffin not a biscuit. The amount of calories is 450 or less. You have the opportunity at fast food restaurants for every meal to eat healthy: salads, chicken, soup, etc. At many fast food restaurants the calorie content is displayed. It is simply a matter of making the right choices.
