Tips to maintain a healthy weight

Tips to maintain a healthy weight

weighing scalesRetrictive diets are avoided by people who consistently maintain a healthy weight.

They are, however, more likely to eat breakfast, exercise regularly and stick to high quality, non-processed food.

In a bid to shed light on how these people remain slim and healthy Cornell Food and Brand Lab researchers analysed the behavior of 147 adults.

They found:

96pc eat breakfast

42pc exercised five or more times a week

50pc weighed themselves at least once a week.

92pc reported being consciously of what they ate

44pc said they used at least one strategy to maintain weight


The strategies included listening to inner cues, cooking at home and eating high quality, non-processed food.

What stood out most in these findings according to the study’s co-author, Dr Brian Wansink, was that “Most slim people don’t employ restrictive diets or intense health regimes to stay at a healthy weight.

“Instead, they practice easy habits like not skipping breakfast, and listening to inner cues.

“If you struggle with weight, try adding these simple practices to your routine, you may be surprised how easy it is to be healthy”, he adds.
