Effective Weight Loss and Good Health: It’s How You Eat That Counts

Effective Weight Loss and Good Health

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has released new recommendations on effective weight loss and dietary restrictions for maintaining a healthy weight, and their central message may surprise you. Rather than focusing on consuming only certain types of foods or particular nutrients, they suggest instead an emphasis on exercise, moderation and portion size as the key strategies that work over the long term. As they conclude, “labeling specific foods in an overly simplistic manner as ‘good foods’ and ‘bad foods’ is not only inconsistent with the total diet approach, but it may cause many people to abandon efforts to make dietary improvements.” A healthy balance, rather than extreme dieting, is the key when it comes to long term weight management.
