Did you know that half of all Americans who lose weight gain at least some of it back within a year, according to research published in the International Journal of Obesity.
It’s a lot easier to keep the weight off than to lose it all over again. Maintaining weight loss is possible by creating life-long healthy habits and monitoring them. This includes:
1. Eating regularly, especially breakfast and eating moderately throughout the day, such as breakfast, lunch, dinner and one or two healthy snacks.
2. Consuming a variety of whole foods: fruit, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds.
3. Being aware of portions and serving sizes.
4. Weighing yourself once or twice a week or being mindful of how your clothes fit will allow you to know if you have gained a few pounds. Then you can go back to what works for you to lose the weight and maintain your weight loss.
Love, Health & Happiness,
