If you're after a quick weight drop, cutting calories (aka starving) for some, might seem the way to go. But, if it doesn't feel good or right, why would we think it's doing us any favours? Restricting calories in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise can definitely help sliding into those skinny jeans with ease, but are you eating enough to make it stick?
