Dr. James Hill has been sharing tips for maintaining weight loss for years, based on his experience and research from his time at the National Weight Control Registry.
In a recent HuffPost article, Why Some Biggest Losers Gain Weight, Keight-Thomas Ayoob shares some of Dr. Hill’s insights on common lifestyle habits that can help maintain weight loss:
- Four out of five eat breakfast every day.
- Three out of four step on the scale at least one time per week.
- Nearly two out of three watch less than 10 hours of TV per week.
- Nine out of 10 get an average of about an hour per day of exercise.
- Most eat a low-calorie diet, with about 28 to 30 percent of their calories from fat.
Maybe you haven’t exercised for a while and the thought of being active is a little daunting.
Here are three things you can do right now to get started moving more.
1. Pass by the drive through window and walk into the bank or restaurant.
2. At work, take walking meetings.
3. Avoid elevators and escalators and take the stairs.
Your body works best when you’re active, so just get out there and move it.
It’s not weight loss you want; it’s wellness.
