With the New Year upon us, many people aspire to shed some weight in 2019. We here at EverSlim are prepared and motivated to help our dieters lose weight safely, effectively, and sustainably! For new dieters, this begs the question: just how much weight loss is safe, effective and sustainable?
To answer this question, the Centers for Disease Control has published an article addressing the issue of healthy weight loss.
The CDC article states, “It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program” It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.” (1)
They also share the positive news that even modest weight loss “is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars.” (1)
Focusing on safely shedding 1-3 pounds per week, behavior modification along the way, and maintaining any weight lost is the hallmark of EverSlim’s program!
EverSlim is passionate about not only getting the weight off safely, but identifying and replacing the problematic perceptions, beliefs and behaviors that contributed to weight gain in the first place. The maintenance phase of EverSlim’s program focuses on strategies to prevent weight regain, discovering self confidence, and self monitoring techniques.
