Adequate Sleep

Poor sleep not only plummets energy needed to maintain an active lifestyle, it also leads to unhealthy food choices as well as reduces the body’s ability to process insulin, the hormone crucial to energy storage and use which may lead to weight gain, diabetes, and other health problems.⁵

Fad Diets

Not all weight loss programs are created equal. When it comes to choosing the right approach for you, be aware of these warnings signs that indicate a program is more hype than science:

  • Diet focuses on food restrictions
  • Focuses on a single food, supplement, or tea
  • Promises quick, rapid weight loss
  • Proof is not backed by research
  • Sounds too good to be true
