The answer to the above is: It depends. And, the above question is far too generic to provide a good answer.
Each person has to be given their own individual context and this begins with the personal interview (whether by e-mail, in-person, or by telephone) to learn lifestyle (work, etc), personal particulars (such as: medications and what type they are to see if anything is relevant to their loss quest
, health or physical issues, age, sex, weight, etc), exercise equipment (at home, gym, or have to use body weight
), recent history, and other important information that point to and address successful completion.
For example: What if the person is a diabetic? Is a low carb diet the best solution? Potentially, not.
