Weight Loss — How to Succeed

The ultimate goal of weight loss is to eat fewer calories than your body burns each day.  Ideally, this is done through a combination of increased physical activity as well as a change in eating habits.

 

 

A sound weight loss program is comprised of:

 

 

  • Reasonable & obtainable weight loss goals.
  • Regular physical activity.
  • Healthy eating habits.
  • A change in daily behaviors to both succeed and maintain goals.

 

A few important things to keep in mind:

 

 

  • Talk to your doctor before getting started.
  • Calories, nutrition, and portions are all important.
  • Fat loss is more important than weight loss.
  • Even minor weight loss achievements can provide major health benefits.
  • Make lifestyle changes, not temporary changes (diets, etc.).
