No New Years Quick Fixes: Make it a Lifestyle!
The three to ten pounds gained over the holidays, if not lost over the next few months, can add up to significant weight gain over a period of years. Although it only took a month to put them on, it will often take longer to come off. In order to lose a pound, one must burn or trim from the diet 3,500 calories, whether they are carbohydrates, fat, protein or calories from alcohol. Burning an extra 350 calories per day can add up to a loss of nearly 35 pounds per year. Many diets promise the quick loss of pounds, but the bigger question is, "Can I sustain this as a lifestyle?" Fad diets can be self-sabotage -- to lose the weight only to put it back on when resuming a normal diet. Why not start with a plan that will gradually build a healthy lifestyle?    Complete Press Release
