EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

“If I eat a good lunch, like this rice and bean bake, I can keep going for a few hours before getting hungry. I keep carrots, an apple or other fruit at work to munch on if I’m hungry in the afternoon.” Wanda S.

To lose 1 pound a week, you need to create a 500-calorie daily deficit. Well-balanced plans recommend eating 250 fewer calories each day and burning an additional 250 calories through exercise. The best equation for losing weight and keeping it off equals a healthy diet plus exercise, rather than focusing too much on one or the other.
