Bay County, Fla. -

While fad diets may be all the rage, experts say gradual weight loss with a proven plan is the key to success.

Sonny Resini has stuck with an exercise program for five years.

"I just had to do it.  I had some heart problems, so I needed to get in here, and here I am," says Resini while working out at HealthPlex in Bay County. 

Personal Trainer Lorraine Hudson works with clients at HealthPlex.  She says there is no hidden secret to weight loss.

"Honestly, it's just a science...Calories in, calories out.  Whether it's paleo or vegan or
Weight Watchers, it's balancing your energy in your food intake and your energy out, your activity level, your exercise," she explains. 

Hudson says adding in exercise makes a big difference in overall results.  She says weight loss is not the only benefit.  She says those who exercise also have increased energy and a better mental attitude. 

Hudson also recommends setting a goal and staying focused on that goal.

That's what has worked for Resini.  He says fitness has changed his life.

"I feel a lot better.  It gives me more energy to say the least," he says with a smile.

Before beginning any diet or exercise program, you'll want to talk to your doctor to determine the best plan for you.
