8 Crucial Questions for Determining the Right Weight Loss Plan for You
04 Mar   by Lisa

By now most of us are aware that obesity and overweight are a major problem in America.

Many of us personally have had or know someone who has had a focus on losing weight at some time.
There are so many diets being promoted!

How do you choose?

Where do you start?

According to Medicine Net “Maintenance of a healthy body weight is important for maintaining both physical and emotional well-being and preventing disease” (1). We have long known that obesity is associated with an increased risk for numerous medical conditions. We now are seeing the effects of the overweight and obesity epidemic as an increase in chronic diseases. Losing even some of the weight positively impacts chronic health conditions. Some show a reduction in symptoms and some of these conditions will even resolve. People who lose weight report “improved mood, increased in self-esteem and motivation, and feeling healthier in general” (1).

To be successful in weight loss and healthy weight management you need to have sensible goals and expectations. Most people are advised lose weight gradually. It’s also a good practice to ask your primary care doctor ask if they would help monitor your progress with your new weight program.

Here are the basic questions to ask yourself as you research any weight loss or diet program:

1. Does the diet plan promote a comprehensive wellness solution for a whole body approach?

2. Does the plan have scientific backing?

3. Does the diet plan encourage foods from all the food groups?

4. Does the diet plan allow you to include your favorite foods?

5. Does it include foods that you would enjoy eating for a lifetime and not just for a few weeks or months?

6. Does the diet plan include the nutrients you need?

7. Does it encourage physical fitness?

8. Do you feel good when you are on the plan?

If you can answer “yes” to all the questions, you should feel good that you’ve chosen the right program for you!
