NEW YORK, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- We all wish there was a magic formula for losing weight and keeping it off for good.  But the "secret" to shedding unwanted pounds the healthy way is not banishing carbohydrates, doing juice cleanses or eating gallons of cabbage soup.  Doctors and nutritionists agree that sustained, healthy weight loss comes down to a basic equation: fewer calories plus more exercise equals weight loss.  By keeping track of how many calories you consume and burn every day, you can slim down, gain energy and finally lose that extra weight!
