You may, and I emphasise the word ‘may’, have to change a lot more than a few supplements or food choices. You may have to learn about yourself, about your habits, your attitudes and behaviours, your fears and emotions, your food, your priorities, and you may have to look at the situation around you – the people and the environment.
When we look at the people who lost about 66 lbs on average or ~30kg and kept it off for more than 5 years in the National Weight Control Registry research study they did more than just go on a diet. They really changed their way of life.
- 98% of people reduced their food intake
- 94% of participants increased their exercise.
- After losing weight, almost all of the registry members ate breakfast and 75% weigh themselves at least once a week to track themselves
- About 45% of registry participants lost weight on their own, while 55% of participants obtained help from some type of program or support
- 78% eat breakfast every day.
- 62% watch less than 10 hours of TV per week – much less than the average person in the USA.
