8 Biggest Loser weight loss strategies
Prevention magazine offers kudos to NBC’s Biggest Losers in this online article. Spotlighting three female contestants — Kae Whang, Hollie Self, and Isabeau Miller — the editors gathered up eight strategies these gals use as they strive to maintain their weight loss for the long run.
- Weighing in at spot number one: Believe you can do it. Nothing is impossible.
- Number two: Don’t forget to eat. Skipping meals can lead to out-of-control hunger and overeating.
- Three: Do cardio you enjoy every day. Try for 60 to 90 minutes per day, sweat, and mix up your routine.
- Four: Weight-train at least twice a week. It will boost your metabolism and offer a mental lift too.
- Five: Take advantage of early momentum. Early results, like rapid weight loss, are common. When things taper off, stay tough.
- Six: Expect — and push through — plateaus. Be patient, stick to your plan, and the scale will move in your favor.
- Seven: Build a support team. Find a partner, a program, a health club that motivates you.
- And eight: Face emotional eating head-on. Write down everything you eat, ask yourself, “Is it worth it?,” put your health first, and let your success inspire you.
