According to the experts at 101 Medical Weight Loss, losing the weight is only part of the battle. Keeping it off is just as or even more important. To ensure the success of weight loss goals, 101 Medical Weight Loss offers seven top tips for keeping that weight from sneaking back on.
Its hard enough losing the weight, says Dr. Aazami of 101 Medical Weight Loss. But it can be so discouraging to watch the weight you worked so hard losing creep back on.
To prevent this, weight loss experts say following the 7 tips below can help you get your success over the long term.
Even after my patients reach their goal weight, I continue to see them several times a year. Why? So we can make sure they aren’t regaining the weight theyve lost; if they are, we come up with a plan to reverse the trend. Having someone to check in with long after the weight is gone can help keep it from coming back.
Act Like a Loser:
Studies have shown that people who continue to practice habits like weighing in once a week, tracking their calories in a journal, and other changes that helped them lose the weight are also more likely to avoid gaining it back again.
Stick with Your Fitness Plan:
Once you lose weight, exercise becomes your ally in keeping it off. Exercise helps boost your metabolism and also preserve lean muscle tissue both of which keep your body burning more calories per minute, every minute of the day. So be sure to keep exercising get at least the equivalent of 5 hours a week if you are a woman, or 3 hours a week if you are a man.
Beware Emotional Eating:
When I notice one of my patients is starting to regain weight, once we talk we discover its often because of a stressful life situation like a lost job, a sick family member, or the loss of a relationship has led them to overeat. Just like eating for emotional reasons didnt work before you lost the weight, it still wont work after. Staying aware of your emotional state and taking steps to manage difficult times with something other than food will help you avoid this weight regain trap.
Get Your Zzzzs:
Studies show that people who dont sleep well or enough gain weight easier than those who get enough rest. While we are still trying to understand why, it seems sleep helps control a complex range of hormones and chemical reactions within your body to keep things in balance. So make getting good sleep and enough of it a top priority!
Once the weight is gone, many people make the mistake of going right back to their old habits habits that led to their weight problem in the first place. Be careful not to make the same mistake. If you have a trigger food, for example, continue to avoid having it at home where it can tempt you to overeat. Make a list of the old habits you had that didnt work before and vow to not let them creep back into your life.
The food served at restaurants often has far more calories and the portions are far bigger than what you eat at home, so continue to limit eating out to once or twice a week, and have a plan of attack for choosing the healthiest options from the menu even then. Continue to plan your meals and prepare them at home most of the time as a way to stay in control of your calorie intake.
