BUT For those who need dramatic changes — it requires more than Just the occasional workout or daily jog

not only that, but if you're making a drastic change (10-20% of your bodyweight) you need to be a little hungry sometimes.  we live in a world where it's far too easy to overeat based on most people's activity level.  exercise helps speed up the process, but in the end it boils down to what you do and you do not put into your mouth.  when you are hungry, your body is no longer in its comfort zone and that's how you know changes are being made.  hunger is also a short term feeling that goes away after a while.  ever had hunger pangs, but been too busy to eat and after a half hour it goes away?  you don't have to eat every time you are hungry.

for anyone that is serious about losing weight, the best way to do it is to start counting calories of everything you eat each day.  it's a tedious process, but if you want to be successful you need to start from the beginning.  there are formulas and calculators that will tell you how much to eat based on your weight and activity level, but in the end everyone is different and you need to find your baseline caloric expenditure by tracking your weight in the morning on an empty stomach for a week or two, and then slowly reduce from there. 

years ago it was much harder to track your eating and calorie count (looking at the back of boxes, measuring food), but now there are countless apps that you can download on your phone and type in what you eat and it will keep a log for you.  if this all sounds like too much work, you can pay someone to do it for you and to tell you what and when to eat (the goal is to starve off hunger pangs as best you can with certain foods and drinks), but in the end you're making drastic changes to your body and it's going to hurt for a little bit.
