Avoiding Weight Loss Pitfalls


NOTE - Healthier Life in 2016

Any weight loss program has its pitfalls. New Year resolutions to lose weight, for example, often don't last more than a week. Here are some potential “pits” and strategies to help keep you from falling in.

Don't Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

Lose 10 pounds in one week? If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Realistic expectations help keep you from getting discouraged. Your body isn't a machine, it's a complex biological organism. If you want to lose weight, you need to make changes that will have an effect over the long haul. If your goal is to lose half a pound a week — very doable for most people — and you lose a pound instead, you'll be much more inclined to stick to that New Year resolution.

Don't Fall For Fads

Fads are, by their very nature, short-term phenomena. The reason diet fads tend to be a flash in the frying pan is that many just don't work. Fads are often hard to stick to, as they often limit food choices and set you up for food cravings. Choose a healthy way of eating that meets your nutritional requirements and promotes your health. Eating real, healthy foods may also save you some money, especially if the latest fad includes buying pre-packaged meals or protein drinks.

Don't Try To Go It Alone

You probably don't remember learning to walk, but the odds are high you didn't master that important skill without some help. When you're trying to change your habits, a partner or support group can help keep you from reaching for the chocolate chip ice cream instead of a piece of fresh fruit. Call us at Metabolic Research Center and we'll help you avoid those pits.

I am so happy I made MRC in Panama City, Fl. part of my life in 2012.
