Secret To Keeping Weight Off

Secret To Keeping Weight Off Losing weight isn't the hard part. For many dieters, keeping the lost weight from creeping back is the real challenge. To help turn the tide, consider applying the findings of a 10-year study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

After nearly 3,000 subjects lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for a year, they were enrolled in the National Weight Control Registry, where their self-reported long-term weight management efforts were tracked. More than 87% maintained a minimum 10% weight loss after 5 and 10 years. Their secret was staying active, regularly monitoring their weight, keeping fat out of their diet and not overeating.

True Strength Moment: It sounds simple enough, but staying disciplined for an indefinite period of time is a lot harder than exercising willpower only up to the point of reaching a weight loss target. You can't let your guard down if you want to always look and feel your best.
