Weight loss: 6 strategies for success

Long-term weight loss requires dedication. You shouldn't delay weight loss, but you should be ready to modify your food and exercise habits permanently.

Make sure you're ready

Nobody else can make you lose weight. You must adjust your diet and exercise to suit yourself. What would motivate you to lose weight?

Find your inner motivation

Setting achievable weight-loss goals may seem obvious. But do you know reality? Long-term, try to lose 1–2 pounds (0.5–1 kilogram) per week.

Set realistic goals

Eat more plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to save calories.

Enjoy healthier foods

Get active, stay active

Long-term weight management requires more than a few weeks or months of balanced eating and exercise. These habits must become routine.
