How A Weight Loss Program Can Help You Reach and Maintain Your Weight Loss Goals

Many people make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, but given our busy schedules, this resolution may be hard to keep because we tend to lose the focus, commitment, and motivation needed to successfully achieve our weight loss goals.

Joining a weight loss program that combines one-on-one support from expert weight loss coaches, eating real food, and using natural health products seems to be one of the best ways to lose weight, but more importantly, it motivates you to keep on going. It seems like at the beginning of every new year, we are very focused and we make great strides towards achieving our weight loss goals, but as the year goes on, when we have reached that goal, we tend to lose focus on weight control. This is why it is so important to lose weight naturally, without any weight loss gimmicks. Make sure the program you are following is one you can make a way of life. If at this point in the year you are struggling, ask yourself if you need to modify your program so that you will be able to continue making healthy strides.

And we have another tip for you! A good way to determine your current health is to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI), which is an assessment used by most health experts and physicians. A BMI calculator is an easy tool you can use to see if you are underweight, healthy weight or overweight. It simply uses metrics such as your age, gender, weight, and height to estimate human body fat in proportion to mass.

So if you find yourself looking for that extra push towards your weight loss goals, I would recommend a comprehensive weight loss program because they have been very effective at helping us stay focused and develop the right habits needed to maintain a healthy weight. And if you are just starting out, don’t worry, calculate your BMI and join us on the journey. Have a nice day and a better year!

  1. I've tried doing healthy eating and all those sort of things but for me I find the structure of weightwatchers and the accountability much easier to follow

  2. Christine, I am not following this program-- but I researched the program and they teach healthy eating and weight loss the natural way, so I said yes to a guest post.

    I think it's a timely post--this is the time of year a lot of us start to slip up a bit. A good reminder to re-evaluate and make the changes necessary to move forward and not give up.

    Sarah- I like the structure of WW too. As you may know, I gained some weight back when I tried to do this without WW-- so I'm sticking with WW!

  3. I agree that a structured weight loss program gives you the most support and the best chance of succeeding. I would be hesitant to rely too much on BMI as your guide to health though, it is a very misleading measure for many body types.

    I have had a body composition scan done, which showed that with my lean body mass (bones, muscle), I would need to have 13% body fat to scrape into the very top of the "healthy" BMI range. As 15% is considered the minimum essential body fat level for females, this would not be a healthy outcome. All tools and guides need to be used with caution and adjusted to each individual.

  4. There is evidence that the active ingredient in this product has weight loss properties, although there is some concern regarding its effect on maintaining the newly achieved lower weight in the long term. garcinia cambogia
