Weight Loss and Behavior Change

Health Tip: Let’s face it, losing weight is challenging; and keeping it off can be even more difficult. A study by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2016 reported that globally nearly 1.9 billion adults ages (18+) were overweight; and more than 650 million of those people were obese. We spend billions each year on products suggesting that restricting sugar or eating low-carb meals will result in weight loss. Oftentimes we buy into these quick fix plans that may produce temporary results, but it’s not sustainable long-term. Consider adopting the SMART philosophy which focuses on gradually incorporating healthier, more manageable lifestyle behaviors that ensures success.

SMART principle:

  • S – Be as SPECIFIC as possible when setting goals

  • M -Make sure your goals are MEASURABLE

  • A – Consider your lifestyle to make sure your goals are ACHIEVABLE

  • R – Set RELEVANT results-oriented goals

  • T – Set reasonable TIME windows to achieve each goal
