Eating right is hard, exercising is tough, and sticking to a diet can sometimes seem impossible. Finding the right healthy living routine, rather than just picking a diet off the shelf, can often make this process less of a challenge.
While many of us live a healthy lifestyle, or are making efforts to improve our routines, obesity remains a serious problem in our state. Florida is ranked 29th
in the nation for adult obesity, according to a 2011 report from the Trust for America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
. Identifying and confronting the problem may prove to be the most difficult step.
There are many weight-loss programs out there, from the seemingly legit to the “too-good-to-be-true.” There is no universal diet designed to fit everyone’s needs because everyone’s body is different.. And for most of us, no diet will be a perfect fit. It’s more about creating a healthy lifestyle that you can live with day in and day out rather than focusing on a quick fix. According to the Mayo Clinic
, consulting with your family physician before making decisions about your health is very important. Their knowledge of your medical history can help them map out a plan for your desired weight loss goals. Your physician may also recommend a nutritionist to get you started!
