COLUMBUS, MS--(Marketwired - September 21, 2016) - Nearly 80 million Americans are obese, with many more overweight and battling various health issues instigated by excessive weight gain. Losing weight, however, is challenging for most individuals. According to reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), encouraging Americans to lose weight (or even gain less weight) has been primarily ineffective. Effectively losing weight involves using more calories than is intaken. Because 1 pound of weight equals 3,500 calories, losing 1-2 pounds per week needs to involve reducing caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day. This kind of caloric reduction diet, however, can be very risky without doctor-supervision and can be unrealistic for most people to maintain. Most overweight people either never pursue weight loss or adopt unhealthy weight loss practices like skipping meals; using over-the-counter "diet pills" unsupported or supervised by a doctor; and not establishing a support system to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet plan.
Based on studies supported by the National Institutes of Health, healthy weight loss strategies include:
- Reducing the number and size of portions
- Increasing physical activity on a regular basis
- Reducing consumption of fried foods, sweets, and alcohol
- Using meal replacement drinks and bars
- Joining a doctor-supervised weight loss program
