In general most diets recommended are practical to lose weight permanently. The safe road to go is to reduce the amount of food by ¼ day (providing that it’s a balanced diet) and walk once a day over and above the regular routine
Walk slowly at first for two weeks, if very overweight then gradually speed up the walking rate until after 3 months one can walk about 6.5 kilometers in one hour. That is 4 miles an hour.
This means taking about 120 steps a minute on the level ground. A program such as this if honestly practiced will result in remarkable weight loss in one years’ time. There are safe short cuts to fast weight loss.
