How to Lose Weight the Healthy Way?

You've heard it all before -- to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume. But anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows it's not that easy!

For many people, efforts to lose weight mean intensive dieting, obsessive calorie counting, self-deprivation, and hunger. This type of dieting usually leads to failure because you suffer through it. For the most part, people who lose weight and manage to keep it off do so by adopting healthy habits that stay with them for the rest of their lives. Weight loss is not an isolated, one-time activity, but part of a lifetime of better health.

Take it slow and steady

Start with realistic, achievable goals. Don't expect to become "thin" overnight. Experts agree that slow, steady weight loss is healthier than a quick fix or remaining overweight. You should try to lose no more than a couple of pounds per week.

While this can be frustrating, slow and steady weight loss is the only way to avoid "yo-yo dieting," where you lose a great deal of weight, only to regain it within a few months or years. There are no miracles in weight loss; go for steady progress toward a healthier life.
