Breaking Old Habits
Often the first step to a good diet lies in changing food and eating behavior:
- Don’t skip meals
- Eat a series of small meals throughout the day and avoid a big meal late in the evening
- Eat and chew slowly
- Use a smaller-sized plate to achieve a “full plate”
- Don’t go back for seconds
- Bake or broil food instead of frying
- Order from light menus and purchase low-calorie or low-fat foods (remember that low-fat does not necessarily mean low-calorie)
- Learn about food values and make healthy combinations in meals
- Weigh yourself regularly and focus on measuring body fat percentage
- Reward yourself with non-food pleasures
Exercise plays an increasingly important role in weight management and overall fitness for people of all ages. The revised Dietary Guidelines for Americans emphasizes the importance of physical activity for both weight control and health. Weight maintenance rather than weight loss should be the primary focus.
The Guidelines encourage people to increase physical activity and reduce sedentary activity in order to maintain or lose weight, recommending a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate to intense physical exercise every day. They also recognize the link between weight gain and health risks (i.e. premature death) for adults. And they acknowledge that the distribution of fat in the body affects the risks associated with obesity, identifying exercise as one of the few factors that reduces central body fat.
Planning an exercise program should be based on personal goals as well as on individual capabilities. The most important element is to think long-term and make exercise a permanent part of your life.
