How to Choose a Weight Loss Program that Works

Posted: April 16, 2012 in health

What are the things that you should look for in a weight loss or fitness program? Here are easy tips to help you find the best program that will work for your body.

Safety should always be your priority.

Whether you personalized your own fitness program or go ahead with a commercial one, make sure it is something safe. Come up with a diet plan that includes all the necessary minerals, vitamins and protein sources. In general, women should have at least 1000 calories daily and 1200 calories for men.

Go for slow and steady weight loss.

Choose a program that goes for slow and sustained weight loss unless your physician feels that your health condition will benefit from rapid weight loss efforts. Try to set realistic expectations from yourself as well. Don’t expect to lose ten pounds in a week or two. There could be a significant weight loss during the initial week but this is largely fluid loss. A healthy weight loss should be around one or two pounds in a week.

Questions to Ask

When choosing a commercial fitness program, make sure you get detailed statements of costs and fees from the company. Here are some questions to ask:

  • Do they have professional health professionals in their staff like exercise physiologists, doctors and dieticians?
  • Are their food choices suitable and flexible?
  • What is the average weight loss for people who finished their fitness program?
  • What percentage of clients has had problems or adverse effects?

But in reality, weight control is a lifetime commitment. To be effective and safe, any fitness program must focus on a long term approach or it will only be a waste of time, money and effort.
