WEIGHT GAIN At about the age of 45-50 people of all nations begin to gain weight, even in the face of no significant change in what and how much we eat. For most of us this weight gain happens gradually, a few pounds a year. Occasionally it is rapid. This can be a frustrating issue for all of us, balancing the joy of eating with the side effect of being over weight.
Exercise is key to keeping weight off. Sorry for those of you who haven’t found the exercise that you enjoy doing. I know this can be frustrating I tell myself that I can eat more if I exercise more which is a good insentive to me to get out there and do it.
There is an industry in our country concerning weight loss. In my experience almost any weight loss program will work, however keeping the weight off is another issue. Weight loss and gain and loss patterns are not healthy and outcomes show a gradual weight gain over time. The best weight loss programs are the ones that teach us a new way of eating so weight loss can be maintained. These include
- Weight Watchers.
- Caloric intake/output tracking.
- Eating mainly vegetables and very few carbohydrates, sweets and starch.
