A plan is an important step in weight loss. Short term diets do not work; sustainable weight loss necessitates a lifestyle change. It requires making long-term sacrifices and incorporating a healthy diet. It is not easy in the beginning, but as you see the benefits in increased energy and other health benefits, it becomes a new way of life.
Discussion questions: Have you tried dieting before? If so, did you lose weight and has it been sustainable? What are your thoughts on keeping a healthy eating plan, or tracking your calories?
