What Is Healthy Weight Loss?
When asked the above question, many of us tend to go negative. We’re thinking, “I want to lose weight, but I don’t want to damage myself in the process.” Healthy weight loss means…
- No negative side effects
- No pills
- No surgeries
- No gimmicks
- “I’m not starving myself”
- “I’m not going up and down with my weight”
But healthy weight loss can also mean the exact opposite. It can be positive, transforming. It’s about losing weight and getting multiple, life-saving benefits along with it, like lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower blood sugar.
With this kind of healthy weight loss, we also get more than a “here today, gone tomorrow” diet. We get a new way of life. A life that we love. This is healthy weight loss at its very best, and it’s been happening at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami since 1975.
What Is a Healthy Weight-Loss Rate?
“For many people, slower weight loss is healthier. But it’s important to understand that everyone’s journey is individual,” stresses Kimberly Gomer, MS, RD, LDN, Director of Nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami.
