Losing Weight By Starting Anew

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. According to researchers from Brown and the University of Denver, that's the mindset you'll need to apply if you want to lose weight and keep it off. At a recent meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, they presented the idea that we live in an 'obeseogenic' environment of fast food, automobiles and remote controls. They created the National Weight Control Registry to analyze the success stories of those who have conquered this 'toxic' atmosphere. It now includes research on 5,000 men and women who lost an average of 70 lbs. and kept it off for 6 years.

The Bigger Picture: Impressive achievements like the ones documented in this registry don't happen by switching from whole to 2% milk. You have to make radical changes and stick to them. These changes include following a consistent dietary regimen across weekdays as well as weekends, remaining diligent about exercise and taking quick action against setbacks. Rest assured that, in the end, making healthy adjustments in your lifestyle will have been worth the effort.
