You want to live a long and healthy life, right? One of the best ways to reach this goal is to maintain a healthy weight. Keeping your body and weight healthy can give you more energy and improve the quality of your life.
To lose weight and keep it off, you need to make food and activity choices you can keep up for the rest of your life. But even small choices can add up to big results.
If you're like most people who want to lose weight, you want to lose it quickly. But experts agree the most successful way to lose weight is gradually - just a pound or two a week for most people.
To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat or drink. Being more physically active helps your body burn more calories.
The key to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight isn't changing the way you eat for just a little while. It's about changing what you eat and how you live every day.
That sounds like a tall order. But making small, healthier choices each day can lead to big health gains – and weight loss.
