I found this article in Remedy Fall 2007. The information is from the National Weight Control Registry which has been tracking 5,000 people since 1994 who have lost at least 30 pounds & kept it off at least a year. The average had lost 60+ pounds and kept it off much longer. Here is how the majority lost the weight.
1. They ate breakfast
2. They ate low-calorie diet with 25% coming from fat. There average calories were 1400.
3. They used the scale. Recognize the scale for what it is- a tool to keep you honest.
4. They exercise and exersize. They exersized an hour a day, which is only 6% of your waking hours.
Almost 100% of the people said that weight loss led to improvements in their level of energy, physical mobility, general mood, self-confidence, and physical health.
Hmmm I'm noticing alot of similarities with Sparks!
How about you?
