Managing a Healthy Diet : Strategies for Weight Loss


Hi, I’m Brenda Thompson, registered dietitian
and owner of Life Skills Nutrition. In this
segment I’m going to talk about ten strategies
for weight loss. In other segments I will
go into the strategies in a little bit more
detail. The first one is to be sure you are
ready for weight loss. It is always important
that you want to set yourself up for success,
and so if you are not ready, you should not
start a diet regimen or an exercise regimen
to try to lose weight. You want to seek advice
from a registered dietitian and set healthy
goals. We will go through a series of how
you would set a healthy goal. Stay away from
fad diets, and we will cover ten strategies
on how to spot a fad diet. The reason you
don’t want to follow fad diets is because
sometimes you lose weight too quickly, and
you’re losing water and muscle instead of
fat, which the ultimate goal is really to
lose fat. You could also cause some other
harmful side effects. If you want to understand
your body, it is really important to look
at your family and your genetics. Also, understanding
a little bit about your set point is important.
Keeping a food diary is essential in weight
loss. Research shows that people who keep
a food diary keep the weight off much longer
and are much more successful at losing weight.
You want to select nutrient dense foods from
all food groups. Stay hydrated. Hydration
is very important and sometimes easily forgotten,
and you want to incorporate exercise.
