Health Corner: Maintaining a healthy weight after loosing weight



Now that you’ve intentionally lost weight, let’s talk about some ways to maintain that success.

Avoid common eating habits that can lead to weight gain such as:
*-Eating too fast*
*-Always cleaning your plate*
*-Eating when not hungry*
*-Eating while standing up (may lead to eating mindlessly or too quickly)*
*-Always eating dessert*
*-Skipping meals (or maybe just breakfast).*

*Follow a healthy and realistic eating pattern.*
In studies of people who have lost weight and kept it off for at least a year, most continued to eat a diet lower in calories as compared to their pre-weight loss diet.

*Keep your eating patterns consistent.*
Follow a healthy eating pattern regardless of changes in your routine. Plan ahead for weekends, vacations, and special occasions.

*Eat breakfast every day.*
Eating breakfast is a common trait among people who have lost weight and kept it off. Eating a healthful breakfast may help you avoid getting “over-hungry” and then overeating later in the day.

*Monitor your weight.*
Check your weight regularly. When managing your weight loss, it’s a good idea to keep track of your weight so you can plan accordingly and adjust your diet and exercise plan as necessary.

*Get daily physical activity.*
Moderate aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, for at least 150 minutes a week or vigorous aerobic activity, such as jogging, for at least 75 minutes a week is recommended.

*If you use a step counter, remember that it takes an average of 10,000 steps per day to prevent weight gain. Some studies indicate it might take 15,000 steps per day to prevent the regain of weight after significant weight loss.*
