The National Weight Control Registry is a group of people who have lost an average of 60 pounds and kept it off for more than 5 years. Here are their recommendations for success:
- Eat breakfast every day. High fiber cereal is a popular choice.
- Follow a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan and consume half of the calories from fruit, vegetables, grains and low-fat milk.
- Be active for 60 minutes each day. Walking is a popular activity.
- Keep track of your weight, food choices and activity. Personally, I would recommend MyFitnessPal.com to track your progress and success. Once you register, look me up. My username is menucoach. Contact me and let me know you’ve joined, added me as a friend or provide me with your username.
