Part 2 Ten Strategies for Promoting Healthy Eating and Safe, Permanent Weight Loss
Apr 18, 2010
2. Lose Weight at a safe rate.
When it comes to losing weight, and keeping it off, slow and steady wins the race. Weight lost too quickly often returns-- and sometimes with unwanted additional pounds. The safest diets promote weight loss of no more than 2 pounds (or 1% of total body weight) a week. Losing weight at such a rate reduces risk of health problems associated with more rapid weight loss (more than 3 pounds per week). Nutrition Together offers a calorie-controlled nutrition plan that when combined with the Fitness Together exercise program results in a safe and effective rate of weight loss.
