About Weight Loss

  1. 5 Food Fallacies

    Should you skip breakfast if you want to lose weight? Is all fat bad for you? Find out the answers to these and other questions about food.

  2. A Healthy Weight for Life

    The “secret” to maintaining a healthy weight is not found in any magic diet or weight loss system. In fact, it’s no secret to it at all. You just need to take in about the same amount of calories that your body uses up.

  3. Choosing a Safe Weight-Loss Program

    The not-so-secret secret to weight loss is to burn more calories than you eat. This can be done safely and effectively by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

  4. Could a Nutrition Expert Help You?

    If you need to change your eating habits for the sake of your health, have you considered talking with a registered dietitian (RD)?

  5. Could Medication Be Causing Weight Gain?

    The most common prescription medications to cause weight gain include drugs that treat depression, heartburn, bipolar disorder, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

  6. Fight Back Against Fat

    obesity increases the risk for illness from 30 serious medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and several types of cancer.

  7. Maintaining Weight Loss

    Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.

  8. Reviewing Recommendations for Weight Loss

    The latest studies conclude that a successful weight-loss plan is a mind/body undertaking that not only involves monitoring calorie intake and expenditure, but dealing with the psychological side of weight loss and habit change.

  9. The Science of Weight Loss

    On paper, losing weight is simple math. One pound of fat equals about 3,500 calories. In real life, however, it’s more complex.

  10. Vegetarians and Weight Loss

    Most people who follow a vegetarian diet are less likely to be overweight or obese than non-vegetarians. Even so, becoming a vegetarian is no guarantee you will attain or maintain a healthy weight.
