As you pursue a medical weight loss plan, or continue to maintain your new weight, you might begin to feel a bit bored with your routine. Here are five great habits that you can try this summer, to shake things up and develop a new perspective on healthy eating.
You already know that exercise is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of many chronic age-related diseases, and it’s an important part of your weight loss plan too. But you might be surprised to learn that your exercise routine can actually keep you healthy by supporting your immune system and reducing your odds of getting sick!
When you’re renovating your diet, whether for weight loss or just general health purposes, learning new ways of cooking can feel challenging. It might surprise you to learn that one of the most nutritionally dense foods is also one of the simplest and cheapest: Beans! But they do seem a little boring on the surface. How can you include more beans in your meals, but in interesting and palatable ways?
Many of us are concerned about our food supply, and prefer to eat healthier diets whether for weight loss or disease prevention (or both). But sustainability is another growing concern. More of us are becoming aware of the environmental concerns created by our food supply chain, which requires an enormous amount of energy output, factory farming, and other unpopular necessities.
If you’re social distancing and hanging around the house right now, a productive organizing project might be just the way to keep yourself occupied. How about a project that not only organizes your home, but also supports your weight loss plan? If you take the time to straight out your pantry, you might find that it’s easier to reach your goals. Taking these steps can help.

You can tailor your program to suit your needs and preferences, which is a good thing because we stick with programs that are convenient for us.
