TOP TEN TIPS FOR WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS
Choose a plan that makes sense
Pick a program that focuses on strategies you can practice long-term,
not just while you are “on the diet.” Low-calorie meal
replacements, like shakes and portion-controlled entrees, make it
easier to cut calories now and in the future. Also, a plan with
lots of vegetables and fruits allows you to eat in volume without
a lot of calories.
Get off to a strong start
Recent research has found that dieters who lost weight quickly lost
more total weight and kept off more weight long-term. Researchers
concluded that how well dieters do in the first 2–4 weeks predicts
their success up to five years later.
Make your home a safe haven
Fill your home with healthy, low-fat, quick and easy food options.
A bowl of fresh fruit on the counter, for example, can make it easy
to have a healthy snack.
Make a plan
If you don’t plan out what you’re going to do, the world
has a plan for you. Map out the first day of your week to get a
strong start you can build on the rest of the week.
More is better
If you stay full on low-fat, low-calorie foods like fruits, vegetables
and meal replacements, you’re more likely to stay on your diet
and lose more weight overall.
Target your “easy wins”
Simple substitutions are often the easiest way to cut calories.
Drinking a diet soda instead of a regular soda every day will save
you 15 or more pounds in a year. Eating a turkey sandwich with lettuce,
tomato, and mustard instead of a roast beef sandwich with mayonnaise
just twice a week will save you another 15 pounds.
Daily physical activity such as walking, along with healthy eating
is key to long-term weight-loss success and maintenance.
Track your progress
Food and exercise records help you stay accountable to your diet
plan, reinforce your success, and give you valuable feedback on
how to continue to build your skills.
It is important to stay hydrated, especially when you are losing
weight, because your body will naturally lose some water. Make sure
you drink at least eight 8 oz. glasses of noncaloric liquids per
Don’t go it alone
Research shows that people are often more successful when they lose
weight with a friend or a group.
If obesity and weight loss are a continuous struggle for you, Baptist Health has surgical options that could help you shed those excess pounds. Gastric Bypass, or bariatric surgery, a common weight loss surgery, could be the option for you.
