|The Science of Weight Loss - Infographic from Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa|
There are as many experts with wildly different opinions as there are diets, exercise programs, equipment, and supplements.
One thing that most health and wellness professionals who are concerned with healthy weight loss agree on is that the most effective method for losing weight - and keeping it off - is a change in lifestyle.
The lifestyle changes most often recommended include:
✿ Eating a proper, balanced diet of whole foods
✿ Exercising moderately on a regular basis
✿ Having a strong social support system
✿ Getting adequate sleep
✿ Managing stress
✿ Drinking plenty of fresh, clean water
The latest findings show that diet alone or exercise alone will not produce long-term, lasting weight loss results. Relevant studies also show that other factors, such as sleep and stress, play an important role in initial weight loss and sustained healthy weight management.
This infographic entitled "The Science of Weight Loss" illustrates and explains some key facts to consider in adopting changes in lifestyle that will result not only in weight and belly fat loss but also in improved, overall health and an enhanced quality of life.
