Health Tip: Set a Date to Lose the Weight
Target weight loss to a special event

(HealthDay News) -- Planning to shed a few pounds before that upcoming wedding or party?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice:

  • Create a diet plan with realistic goals. Track your progress.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables at each meal, with small servings of carbohydrates and protein.
  • Get a minimum of 2 1/2 hours of exercise per week.
  • To lose about 1 pound each week, trim about 500 calories per day from your diet. Nix potato chips in favor of veggies, and have fruit for dessert.
  • Weigh yourself weekly, and chart your progress.
  • Use this plan as a way to begin a healthy lifestyle, and continue it long after the event is over.
