Health Tip: Don't Let Lost Pounds Return

Suggestions to maintain a healthy body weight

(HealthDay News) -- Losing weight is a major accomplishment, but keeping it off can be just as challenging.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests these healthy habits to help keep weight off for good:

  • Stick to a healthy, yet realistic eating plan. Be consistent with your food choices and calorie intake.
  • Have a healthy daily breakfast.
  • Exercise for 60 minutes to 90 minutes nearly every day.
  • Keep a journal of the foods you eat and your exercise regimen to spot any patterns you should change.
  • Weigh yourself regularly and keep the readings in a log.
  • Enlist friends and family to offer ongoing support of your healthy lifestyle.
