    Weight loss is a combination of good nutrition, calorie reduction, and exercising.

    Reducing your caloric intake by 3500 calories = 1 pound weight loss

    Formula for Success

    1. Small Frequent Meals
    Don’t skip meals or go more than four hours without eating this set you up for later temptation. When meals are more than six hours apart, plan strategic snacks.

    2. Eat Moderate Portions
    Eat a little less of everything!

    3. Beware of Concentrated Sugars
    Excess sugar eaten alone causes more insulin secretion. Insulin promotes fat storage and can result in a rebound drop in blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar, in return, stimulates the appetite, especially cravings for more sugar.

    4. Eat Foods High in Fiber
    Fiber fills you up and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. We need both of them in our diet!

    5. Lower Your Fat Intake
    Limit foods that are high in fat.

    6 . Consume Caffeine in Moderation, If at All
    Caffeine, like alcohol, may be contained in beverages considered to be food but the effects of this chemical are definitely drug-like.

    7. Exercise at least 3 times a week. Walk, walk, walk, or Run!!! Drink Plenty of water.

    Use the charts below to determine your appropriate weight and caloric intake.
