Quick Steps To Achieve Healthy Weight…

June 6, 2008

Go to fullsize imageI came across a well written short article on how to achieve a healthy weight.  The advises sound so simple yet precise and direct to the point of concern.  We tend to disregard simple measures in life and then look for rigorous steps to achieve our goal.  That’s where failure can set in.  Make things simple and Let them work for you….

Here’s the quick 5 steps to a healthy weight from the Harvard Medical Group: The Harvard School of Public Health

1. Ban the strange diets. They may work in the short term, but almost any strange, extreme diet is doomed to fail. Your best friends when it comes to losing weight—and keeping it off? Choosing healthy foods and eating smaller portions, slowly.

2. Be more active. If there’s one best weight loss mantra it’s “exercise, exercise, exercise.” Choose activities you enjoy and do them every day. Exercising with a friend can help keep you on track. 

3. Turn off the television. Watching less TV can give you more time to be active—and less time to be enticed by junk food ads. Two easy ways to cut back on TV-watching: take the TV out of your bedroom, and make sure it’s off during meals.

4. Skip the sugary drinks. Drinking sugared soda, fruit drinks, or juice can give you several hundred calories a day without realizing it. Research suggests children and adults who drink soda or other sugary drinks are more likely to gain weight than those who don’t, and that switching from these to water or unsweetened drinks can reduce weight.

5. Think before you eat. Before you mindlessly reach for a snack, pause and ask yourself, Am I really hungry? Is there a healthier choice? It’s easy to lose sight of good food choices in today’s ad-crazy world. Simple questions like these can help keep us on track.
