#1 Tip for Successful Weight Loss

I’m often asked, “If I were to change just one thing, what could I do to help me lose weight and/or improve my health?” I’d definitely make my recommendation based on a list of common denominators that helped overweight contestants win a place on NBC’sThe Biggest Loser. These same factors have helped America earn its top ranking among obese nations of the world. I found that most contestants:

  • had absolutely no idea how many calories their body really needs (and how many more they are actually taking in)
  • skipped breakfast and often, many other meals
  • didn’t eat enough fruit or vegetables
  • didn’t eat enough protein (lean protein)
  • didn’t eat enough whole grains
  • ate too much white stuff; white flour; white pasta, white sugar, white rice, simple carbs
    didn’t feel they had time to plan ahead – they found themselves grabbing something quick for a meal – often consumed in the car or at their desk.
  • often had enough calories in beverages alone to meet their daily caloric needs
  • didn’t drink enough water
  • didn’t exercise enough (if at all)
  • prioritized their spouse, partner, children and/or their jobs over their own health and well-being
