3 Secrets to Maintaining a Healthy Weight

By Genevieve Cunningham

Keeping your body at a healthy weight can feel like a challenge. Since most of us are carrying around a few extra pounds already, maintaining a healthy weight may include losing first, and then learning to keep that weight under control. It can be a lot of work. But it's important work since our weight greatly affects our overall health. If you need to make the process of maintaining a healthy weight a little easier, take a look at these tips to keep you on track. 

Lifestyle Over Diet

It's not about keeping a diet. A diet is restrictive and temporary. Instead, focus on a lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle is something that you maintain over a long period of time -- over your whole life! You don't eat healthy for a few months and then go back to old habits. That won't work. Instead, make movement and healthy eating a part of your life, and you're much more likely to maintain good health and a proper weight in the future. 

Water Over Everything

If you get the choice between any other beverage and water, always choose water. Water not only hydrates your body, but it also keeps you feeling full without any additional calories. This might mean eating less, which is a big help for those who tend to eat too much. You'll probably also notice that more water means a more efficient metabolism and better digestion. It enhances everything in your body! If better health is the goal, water is the choice you should be making. 

Move, Move, and Move Again

You have to move your body. You may not want to hear that, but it's crucial. Movement helps us lose weight and build muscles and burn calories. It helps our mood and keeps us motivated. It's so important! You can walk or run or dance or do any kind of movement you want, but make sure that movement is a solid and regular part of your life in order to keep your weight -- and your health -- in a good place. 

The thought of maintaining your weight might be a little intimidating. It might sound like hard work. But it's really about building good habits and keeping the right perspective. Use these little tips to keep your weight under control, and you'll be able to enjoy better health for years to come.
