Losing weight is difficult but necessary to avoid the risks associated with obesity. If you’ve recently lost excess weight, congratulations. This is a significant milestone that is likely to have short and long term benefits to your health and well being.
It's important to maintain your weight loss progress. So in this article, we’ll share some advice for maintaining a healthy and balanced diet that helps to sustain weight loss over the long term.
1. Stay Committed and Focused
To increase your chances of long-term weight loss success, it's important to commit to making sustainable lifestyle changes, such as maintaining healthy eating habits, exercising regularly, and engaging in other activities that contribute to weight management.
If you're struggling to stay motivated, consider seeking support from friends or a weight loss partner who can help keep you accountable. Alternatively, you can explore programmes that are designed to promote healthy lifestyle choices, such as our ReCulture 60, which aims to cultivate lifelong healthy habits.
This programme includes a comprehensive health assessment, personalised meal plans, supplements, and access to a dedicated wellness coach who will provide support and guidance along the way. With the right tools and resources, you can achieve your weight loss goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle for the long term.
2. Monitor Your Diet and Activity
Sustaining a weight loss diet requires keeping a close eye on your diet and activity. One of the ways of doing this is keeping a food and physical activity journal to track your progress or identify trends. For instance, you may notice that you gain weight during business trips or when you work late into the night. By homing in on these tendencies, you can take corrective steps such as packing healthy food or using breaks to get some physical activity.
We recommend checking your weight regularly and using what you learn to help plan your diet and exercise accordingly.
3. Get Some Exercise Going
Exercise is great for sustaining a weight-loss diet for many reasons. Firstly, it increases energy levels, which helps with staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Secondly, it reduces stress which can contribute to overeating and weight gain. In the short run, stress can kill appetite; however, when it persists, it causes the adrenal glands in the body to release a hormone called cortisol that increases appetite.
Last but not least, exercise increases the body’s metabolism, which means the body burns more calories at rest. It’s worth noting, however, that this happens only for an hour or so after physical activity. So we suggest maintaining daily physical activity.
Weight loss diets demand a lot of patience and focus, but with the right tools, the right habits, and the right support, you can and will eventually accomplish your weight goals.
