Improving wellness is very different than weight loss. There are distinct markers of wellness (AA/EPA ratio, HbA1c, and TG/HDL ratio).  If these are in their ideal ranges, then you are well regardless of your weight. These represent the top of the mountain. It doesn’t matter what path (or diet) to get to that mountain top, however a calorie-restricted diet with adequate protein, moderate carbohydrate, and low fat that can be followed without hunger or fatigue seems to work best.  Another name for such a diet is the Zone Diet.
