The Third Piece to the Weight Loss Puzzle

In my last blog entry, Weight Training or Cardio??,  I mentioned the importance of participating in BOTH weight resistance training and aerobic activities in order to lose weight and keep it off,  now I will talk about the third and final piece of the weight loss puzzle, paying attention to what goes into your mouth! I know, easier said than done!!

In talking with my clients about their diet, I suggest that they find a program that promotes a balanced diet and teaches portion control such as Weight Watchers.  You want a program that teaches you a life style change, not suck you in by selling you their food or doing something extreme like cutting out certain foods from your diet and therefore may be harmful to you because you may end up lacking important nutrients.

Food portions is the most important issue.  It doesn’t matter what program you follow, whether it’s the Paleo or DASH diet, Jenny Craig, Atkins, etc., bottom line is, you must expend more calories than the amount of calories you take in, period!
