Adopting a healthier diet is a way to solve obesity. You should focus on putting your body in a calorie deficit so it burns the fat off your body for its energy. Don’t eat right before you go to bed because the food you eat usually doesn’t get burned and is converted into fat. Eat smaller and more frequent meals (5 per day). This will train your body to burn its energy at a faster rate.

Clearly, these folks are not taking their “Energizers.”

Protein is a very important food to consume while on an exercise regiment; however, most foods that we eat on a regular basis (post-exercise or not) contain sufficient protein. The key is to eat a heavier concentration of carbohydrates along with a good balance of most nutrients to promote optimal recovery.
