4 Steps to Losing Weight in the New Year

Dr. Diet weighs in:

I like the way Dr. Rolls makes you think about whether or not you are ready to take on a weight loss program at this point in your life. Just because the date is now January 1 doesn't mean that you are motivated and focused to begin to change your eating and physical activity habits.

However, if the timing is right, then the next step makes sense to figure out the type of program that's right for you. Do you like face to face contact? Do you enjoy going to group meetings? Do you like the convenience of the internet?

For those of you who like the convenience of the internet, we have a lot to offer you here on Diet.com. And if you decide to join as a premium member, you will receive one-on-one guidance from a registered dietitian to follow through on this article's recommendations to:

-- set realistic weight loss goals that will keep you from becoming disappointed and abandoning your resolutions by February

-- help you manage calories and eat more nutritious foods that boost health in addition to weight loss

-- teach you eating strategies to follow so that you don't feel deprived of the foods you love or feel hungry all the time

-- teach you physical activity/ fitness plans to follow that are in line with your skill levels

Diet.com looks forward to partnering with our members here to help each of you make your New Year's resolution a reality.

Happy New Year!
