Losing Weight – The Right Way – Is A Good New Year’s Resolution

January 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Losing weight is frequently at the top of the list of New Year’s resolutions, but there are right ways and wrong ways to go about it, according to a family physician. Working out at the gym is certainly good for your health, for example, but you have to reduce caloric intake to shed pounds. Radically changing your diet is not a good idea. It’s better to just cut back a few hundred calories a day. Other insights to consider: weight loss supplements burn more muscle than fat; slow and steady weight loss is better than crash dieting; and losing even ten percent of weight will improve health by lowering blood pressure and reducing diabetes risk.
