Weight Loss Secrets: 3 Secrets to Successful Weight Loss in the New Year
Look back at the beginning of this year. Can you remember your New Years resolution? According to studies conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 66% of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese. So it’s no surprise that weight loss was one of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions.
If you fall into this category, I’ve included three secrets that will guarantee success in the New Year.
Secret #1: Join an exercise group to lose weight. Group exercise programs help provide participants with support, encouragement, companionship, and motivation. Working with others who share the same struggles helps strengthen your commitment and responsibility. There is strength in numbers instead of fighting alone.
Secret #2: Keep a food diary. A recent study showed that keeping a food diary doubles weight loss. Also, keeping a food diary helps you stay accountable for the amount of calories and the quality of the food you eat. Large portions and processed foods lead to weight gain.
Secret #3: Follow a Meal Plan. If you’re not sure what to eat and how many calories to eat, follow an eating plan. Following a meal plan will take the guesswork out of what to eat and help you achieve your weight loss goal quickly. Consult a nutritionist or check online to see the many nutrition programs available. Following these three weight loss secrets will not only make your New Year’s resolution a success, it will also keep you healthy for life.
