More than 2/3 of adults in the US
are trying to either lose or
maintain their weight.
Hectic lifestyles, processed foods,
large portions and decreased
physical activity work against us.
We also need to watch food intake to help us control
our body weight. Regardless if the chosen eating
lifestyle is balanced low-calorie; low-fat low calorie;
moderate-fat low calorie; low-carbohydrate; or
Mediterranean, each will likely work if followed. The
concepts are similar in the end and different things
work best for different people. At Central Florida
UroGynecology, Dr. Davis has been working with patients
to help them understand the daily portion of different
food groups which will either lead to weight loss or
maintaining your weight. Sometimes all we need to learn
is how to eat healthy in the right portions and the
right combinations of types of food to reach our fitness
goals. Eating a balanced diet that includes appropriate
amounts of the various nutrients helps to curb cravings.
Limiting the amount of gluten and not using artificial
sugars will also diminish your desire to eat all the
time and in larger volumes. Remember the main thing will
be healthy food choices and portion control.
Last but not least, it is important to lose weight at
a safe pace. The Center for Disease Control recommends
that weight loss should be at a rate of 1-2 pounds per
week to avoid muscle loss. Weight loss at this rate is
also more likely to be true weight and not water weight
that you regain quickly. Beware of fad diets and eating
programs that cause rapid weight loss as this can be
harmful to your health and usually is not sustainable.
