Health Tip

Picking the Right Diet

To lose weight, you need a sensible diet and regular exercise. When considering which weight-loss plan to follow, keep in mind these factors compiled by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases:

  • The plan you choose should reduce calories but not forbid certain foods or food groups.

  • The plan should include regular exercise. Be sure to check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

  • The plan should aim for weight loss of three-quarters of a pound to 2 pounds a week.

  • The plan should offer specific ideas for how to keep the weight off after you lose it.
