Get the skinny on weight loss. Discover what works for you to improve your chances of losing weight and keeping it off. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

To help keep you in top health, our experts recommend these steps:

  • Pick produce. Health experts note that people who eat more fiber-rich foods are able to maintain a healthier weight over time. Fresh vegetables and fruit make great snacks and can add to your daily fiber tally. Select Eating Right, above, for more information.
  • Rely on whole foods. Whole foods—those that look on your plate like they did when they came out of the ground or off the vine or tree—should form the basis of a healthy, weight maintenance diet. Select Vitamins, above, for more information.
  • Know your medications. Certain weight loss medication can have significant side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before you take over-the-counter or prescription weight loss drugs so you know what to expect. Select Medicines, above, for more information.
  • Up your game. Regular physical activity is a key component of any healthy weight maintenance plan. A tool such as a pedometer to track daily steps taken, or heart rate monitor to help you find the proper workout intensity can keep you on track. Select Personal Care, above, for more ideas on tools for a healthier life.

Our experts recommend the following tips to support a healthy body weight and a healthier you:

  • Keep it steady. Repeatedly losing and regaining weight can make it harder to achieve permanent weight loss success in the long run. Avoid crash diets, and instead find a sensible, moderate plan you can live with...permanently. Select Eating Right, above, for more information.
  • Evaluate the options. There are dozens of weight loss products in the supplement aisle, but not all have the research to back their claims. Know what

    you’re using, and beware of unproven weight-loss products that may have unwanted side effects without the main effect wanted. Select Vitamins, above, for more information.
  • Know your medications. Certain weight-loss medications have significant side effects. Learn the facts and know what to expect when using

    these products. If you’ve recently started a new medication and are gaining weight, ask your doctor if the drug is associated with weight gain. Select Medicines, above, for more information.
  • Go natural. If a new weight loss eating plan leaves your digestive system out of whack—any major diet changes can lead to changes in bowel habits or an unsettled stomach—consider soothing natural digestion aids, such as herbs or teas, to get things back on track. Select Personal Care, above,

    for more information.

    The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.
    In addition, many of the words used started to take on slightly different meanings, depending
    on the context in which they are used. It’s probably some mix of the two, so I
    have to give him props for not going too far in either direction.
