Wellness news: Find your feel-good weight

Aug 6, 2019

Forget juicing, fasting and fad diets. Just focus on being healthy and fit. When you eat right and exercise regularly, maintaining a healthy weight can happen naturally.

Fill up with fiber
High-fiber foods fill you up without filling you out. Getting the right amount of fiber a day can help you lose weight, regulate your blood sugar and lower your cholesterol—all without counting calories.

Make time to move
Cutting calories can help you lose weight, but keeping it off long-term is a different story. Exercise is a must—aim for 200 to 300 minutes of physical activity a week to keep extra pounds you've lost from coming back.

Rethink your drinks
There's more to maintaining your weight than watching what's on your plate. Calories from soda, juice and alcohol add up quickly. Switch to mostly water to help keep your weight from creeping up over time.
