According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), fat loss is a lifestyle decision, but the National Obesity Forum (NOF) is trying to debunk that notion.
“There’s a lot of evidence to suggest that the healthiest people don’t lose weight as a result of dieting,” NOF founder and executive director Mark Bittman told Fox News.
“But if we are really serious about getting people off of a diet and getting them back to a healthy weight, it starts with a healthy lifestyle.”
As such, NOF is advocating that people who are considering weight loss stop eating and start exercising to help burn fat, as opposed to simply going on a diet.
“If you’re doing something to get you off of the diet, and then you’re going on the diet and losing weight, you are making the switch from a healthy, functional lifestyle to something unhealthy,” Bittmann said.
“You have to start somewhere.
So you can’t just keep going on dieting.”NOF says it wants to make a difference in people’s lives by showing them how to lose weight safely, and in a way that promotes healthy lifestyle choices.”
We’re saying we want to make sure that people understand that this is a good, safe, easy way to lose fat,” Bettman said.
In the past, it has been hard to convince people to eat healthy, because people often don’t know about the health benefits of exercise.
“The healthiest dieters lose weight in a very healthy way.
The unhealthy ones lose weight by eating unhealthy, unhealthy foods,” Bickman said, adding that many unhealthy foods are found in fast food restaurants and other unhealthy places.”
You can’t put a sign in your front door saying ‘healthy’ or ‘healthy foods,’ and it’s going to get in the way of the healthier diet,” he said.”
People don’t realize that healthy eating is healthier than unhealthy eating.
So if you want to lose your weight, the healthy diet is the way to go.”NOFF’s website has been updated to include the following tips:1.
NOF recommends that people eat a balanced diet that includes: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy, and olive oil.2.
Eat plenty of protein.
NOFF recommends people eat an average of 30 to 40 grams of protein a day, or three to five servings of protein, along with lean meats, poultry and fish.3.
Get plenty of sleep.
NOFE recommends that women get at least seven to nine hours of sleep a night, and men at least eight hours a night.
“Don’t be afraid to be extra active.
It can help a lot,” Bitteman said of exercise in general.
“It’s not just cardio or weight training that can help.”NO FISHERS’ NEWSLETTER:
