Health Tip: Managing Weight Gain

Health Tip: Managing Weight Gain

03/23/12

(HealthDay News) -- Having plenty of support from friends and family can help you meet your weight-loss goals.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these motivational suggestions to help you lose weight and keep it off:

  • Motivate yourself each day by mentally reviewing why you need to lose weight and maintain that loss.
  • Seek help and support from friends, family or members of a support group.
  • Eat a healthier diet that includes less sugar and fat. Opt instead for foods that are high in fiber and low-calorie.
  • Don't skip meals or starve yourself. These methods may actually cause you to binge eat and gain weight.
  • Set a maximum tolerable weight, and examine your habits if you approach your threshold.
  • Keep a journal of your food intake and exercise habits. Aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise each day.
