Losing weight has three major aspects: diet, sleep, and exercise. You have a greater chance of achieving results by paying attention to all three. Typical American diet meets the needed calories from solid fats like sugars, refined grains, sodium and saturated fats.
Ninety percent of Americans consume sodium more than is allowed. Reducing sodium consumption will save national medical expenditures as much as $20 billion a year. Experts suggest lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts while limiting trans fats, sodium and added sugars. Drinking water can also aid with weight loss before and after meals, and a balanced diet.
