4 Keys to Weight Loss

Posted by Aaron W.

The National Weight Loss Registry has comprised a list of 4 keys to weight loss, based off their study of over 5,000 participants who have lost weight (over 30 lbs) and kept it off (at least 1 year).

From: Medical News Today

Just because you have an office holiday lunch on Thursday, a cocktail party on Friday night and a buffet dinner on Saturday doesn't mean you have to weigh five pounds more come Sunday morning. If you plan ahead, you can fill your week with extra little bursts of exercise and cut back your calories here and there to counteract your high-calorie plans for the weekend and help maintain your weight through the holidays.

"Remember, 500 calories can mean five miles of running," says Michael Berry, Chair of the Dept of Health and Exercise Science at Wake Forest University.

6 Things to Increase Calorie Burn & Decrease Holiday bulge:
1. Taking the steps instead of the elevator
2. Walk at lunchtime - or even take a five-minute walk every 30 minutes
3. Increasing your daily, 30-minute workout by about 10 minutes
4. Don't overindulge, but don't deny yourself, either - keep things in moderation and don't skip the things that bring us so much pleasure this time of the year
5. Fill up on fruits and veggies to curb appetite
6. Don't waste calories on stuff you really don't want

When the holidays wind down, don't despair if you've added a couple of pounds. Most research says you will pick up a pound or two.

Just keep following your pre-holiday strategy of adding bursts of activity to your schedule every day and watch your calories for a month or so, and you should get back on track.
