Successful Weight Management Tips

Successful Weight Management Tips The National Weight Control Registry was established in 1994 as a way to track the ongoing success of over 5,000 people who have not only lost significant amounts of weight, but kept that weight off for a long period of time. Some of their tips for weight loss and maintenance were published in the ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal.

In addition to general tips like tracking your progress in a journal and committing to a clean eating lifestyle, the registry recommends watching less than 10 hours of TV a week, getting at least 200 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week, always eating breakfast and treating yourself to one cheat meal every 7 days. Your cumulative temptations should be reserved for that single occasion, and there's no slacking off for holidays or special events.

True Strength Moment: These are all common sense rules for living a fit, healthy life, and most aren't going to be news to our regular readers. The hard part is sticking to not just some but all of these suggestions day after day. Maybe you cheat just a little too much or skip a trip to the gym more often than you'd like. Hopefully, the success stories of 5,000+ people who have dramatically changed their physiques will inspire you to dial the determination back up.
