To experience a successful weight loss, you must choose a healthy eating plan. It’s important to include a variety of foods, such as veggies, fruits, whole grains, dairy, meats, beans, and eggs.
A healthy eating plan includes the following:
• Veggies, fruits, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products
• Lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts
• Limits saturated and trans fats, sodium, and added sugars
• Controls portion sizes
In addition, when you choose a healthy eating plan you must remember to reduce the number of calories from food and beverages (energy IN) during meal times and increase your physical activity (energy OUT) throughout the day. Very low calorie diets of fewer than 800 calories should not be used unless you are being monitored by your doctor.
Choosing a healthier lifestyle takes practice and commitment. Your daily food choices must become healthy habits. This is a process that takes time and preparation. Then, you must choose a healthy eating plan that you will stick to so you can enjoy a successful weight loss.
