How To Reach Your Weight Loss Goals...

It’s always a good time to resolve to eat better, be more active, and lose weight. For the more than 2 out of 3 Americans who are either overweight or obese, there’s now a free, research-based tool to help you reach your goals: the NIH Body Weight Planner.

Eat Healthy

  • Eat smaller portions.
  • Select a mix of colorful vegetables each day.
  • Choose whole grains.
  • Go easy on fats and oils.

Be Active

  • Stick with activities you enjoy.
  • Go for a brisk walk, ride a bike, or do some gardening.
  • Do strengthening activities. Lift canned food or books if you don’t have weights.
  • If you’re short on time, get active for just 10 minutes, several times a day. Every little bit counts!

Build Healthy Habits

  • Make a healthy shopping list and stick to it.
  • Keep a food and physical activity diary to track your progress.
  • Be realistic and aim for slow, modest weight loss.
