How to Keep Up With Good Habits After Your Weight Loss Success
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
Being of a healthy weight isn’t just about keeping up with your physical appearance; it’s also about making sure that your heart, lungs, and joints are healthy as well. If you just successfully finished one of our medical weight loss programs, then it’s worth celebrating. However, before you reach for that piece of celebratory cake, let’s talk about how you can keep up your good habits after your weight loss success.
Watch What You Eat
After you have that piece of cake, it’s time to get back on track and continue watching what you eat. Although you don’t need to go crazy and continue on one of our extremely low-calorie diet plans, you should try to cut down our caloric intake to maintain your results. Not only should you cut down on your calories but you should also make sure that the calories that you are eating are low in carbs, high in protein, and low in fat.
In addition to eating well, make sure that you are getting enough exercise. On average, try to exercise at least three to five days a week and get in a lot of cardio. Cardio is the number one way that you’re going to burn calories, and it is also one of the best ways to keep your heart healthy.
One easy way to maintain your weight loss results is to live an active lifestyle overall. For instance, rather than going to see a movie on the weekend with friends, try doing something like hiking, biking, running, or just being active outdoors. The more that you are moving throughout the day, the more calories you will burn which will make it easier for you to maintain your results.
Getting through your weight loss journey is the hardest part. By using the three tips above, you can maintain your results without feeling too stressed by it all. To learn more about how you can take better care of your health and weight, contact our Davenport office today at (563) 355-4813.
