Weight loss plan for 2008

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has released new weight loss recommendations for 2008. The recommendations are for physicians to help guide their patients to lose weight to avoid and manage diabetes.

Medical News Today reported, “The ADA also cites scientific evidence showing that how well a person adheres to a diet is one of the biggest determinants in whether they’ll succeed in losing weight.”

Setting weight loss goals

Setting goals can help you stick to your new years resolution weight goals. These ideas may help to get you started.

  • Set realistic goals. For example, lose and keep off 5 pounds for 6 months.
  • Identify the people who will support your weight loss efforts.
  • Write down what you eat and drink for a week.
  • Change your food habits gradually, for good.
  • How much activity do you do?
  • How can I introduce more activity into my day?

“The risks of overweight and obesity are well known. We recognize that people are looking for realistic ways to lose weight.” Ann Albright from the ADA told Medical News Today.

She also said, “The evidence is clear that both low-carbohydrate and low-fat calorie restricted diets result in similar weight loss at one year. We also want to continue to emphasize the importance of regular physical activity, both to aid in maintenance of weight loss, and also for the positive health gains associated with exercise that are independent of weight loss.”
