If a woman who is 15-20 lbs overweight eats 2 average sized meals each day PLUS non-stop hard candy all day long. BUT, she walks 1-2 miles everyday, will she lose weight? Maintain her weight? or gain? Any advice or suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks!

(Not disagreeing) just wondering why? If she wanted to lose 15-20 lbs in 6 months, what should she do differently? What if cutting out hard candy wasn't an option & vigerious exercise could be life threatening. (This is a real situation). Thanks for any advice.

If you ate 5 - 6 smaller meals instead of just two average-sized meals, you probably wouldn't be snacking on candy in-between.

Gain. Candy isn't a food substitute.

What if she can't give up the candy yet (health reasons). What would your next option be?

I posted a reply to that. I'm also assuming that walking the 1 - 2 miles that you may be crunched on time to fit anything else in-between. They have a lot of DVDs for quick workouts.

No. But, the candy is sugar-free (if that helps). It isn't being used as a food substitute, it is helping to break a different addiction.
