Healthy Weight Loss Happens Gradually
Healthy weight loss happens at a rate of approximately 1-2 pounds per week. To do this, you generally need to cut 3500 calories from your diet each week. That’s 500 calories per day. You may be able to hit that mark by swapping water for high calorie sodas each day. Or try replacing a high-fat side dish such as chips or fries with fresh fruit at lunch and dinner. You can also try combining healthy eating with regular exercise to burn more calories.
Avoid Weight Loss Gimmicks
You may see ads for diet plans, pills and supplements that advertise faster weight loss. Often, the products are not effective. Your best bet for long term weight loss is to learn healthy eating habits and lose the weight gradually.
