|Q: What's the Best Way to Keep the Weight Off?
A: Two easy answers:
- Exercise: Cutting calories generally leads to weight loss,
but what’s the secret to keeping it off? Results from a new study
support what exercise enthusiasts have been saying for years: at least
part of the answer is exercise. The study, published in Obesity,
found that women who lost weight through dieting gained less weight in
the subsequent year if they stuck with either an 80-minutes-per-week
aerobic exercise or strength-training (resistance exercise) program than
if they didn’t exercise.
- Take small bites: A new study supports that at least one
piece of common wisdom—taking small bites and taking your time over a
meal—actually works: research found that taking smaller bites and
leaving food in the mouth longer reduced the total amount of food eaten.
The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
included 22 healthy normal-weight adults who each participated in
several separate eating tests. The participants ate approximately 3 to 4
ounces less chocolate custard when the bite sizes were small than when
they were large, and approximately 1.5 to 2.25 ounces less when they
held the custard in their mouth longer than when they swallowed it
quickly. Those who took bigger bites ate more custard.
