Find a method that is sustainable. If what you do in the short term isn’t something you can maintain for years to come, then it probably will not be successful.
Make small, gradual changes – try to change one or two things at a time – such as cooking with more whole grains instead of white grains, or increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables – rather than trying to change everything at once. This can be overwhelming and typically does not result in long term success
For successful weight loss, both nutrition and exercise are important. Be sure to address both of these lifestyle components.
Engage a social network – whether online, work friends, family, church – the more accountability and support you have, the more successful you are likely to be.
