Effective Lifestyle Changes For Weight Loss

So who cares about healthy weight loss? Everyone should. Over 65% of adults over the age of 20 can be classified as obese. In addition, 17% of adolescents aged 12-19 years are overweight and 19% of children ages 6-11 years are considered overweight. Obesity is and will continue to be a serious problem in the future unless changes are made.

It is estimated that 300,000 deaths each year in the United States are associated with obesity. Billions of dollars are spent each year for treatment of the complications associated with obesity. The economic costs include the out-of-pocket expenditures of the individuals involved, the costs of the institutions and organizations which help provide services, and the costs by every member of society whether they are in this group or not.

A healthy Eagle Ridge Fitness weight loss program could do a lot to help people avoid personal and financial risks associated with being overweight, and to help achieve happier, healthier, more productive years of fun once they leave their weight problems behind.

There are many “fast” weight loss programs available today rather than healthy weight loss programs, and it is next to impossible to include both terms in the same sentence. The quick weight loss programs that are so prevalent are short-term and temporary. These programs, which commonly involve drinks, supplements and pills simply do not work, at least not for permanent, healthy weight loss. Worse, many of these programs can actually contribute to more weight gain in the long run, decreased vitality, a decline in health, and in extreme cases, death.

Fortunately, there are healthy weight loss programs, plans, systems, and options which can contribute not only to healthy weight loss, but a lifetime of healthy weight management. While a comprehensive program can explain the ways to achieve healthy weight loss, here are some tips to help anyone wanting start a permanent program for health and fitness.

Here are some Eagle Ridge Fitness tips on how you can lose those unwanted pounds the healthy way:

Start moving.
One of the most effective weight loss strategies is built around exercise. Unfortunately, many people have no idea how much exercise they should do. The good thing is that simple, enjoyable activities such as gardening, swimming, or playing tag with the kids can be part of an exercise program.
