Make Your Future Healthier
Tips for making healthy, long-term changes for a healthier future.
Nutrition, exercise and education are the keys to a healthier future.
When it comes to losing weight and getting into shape, good intentions are never quite enough. And there’s not a quick-fix solution either. It takes a well-balanced approach and a commitment to making healthy, long-term changes.
According to Dr. Marc Sorenson, people who succeed in losing weight and keeping it off have several things in common in three important areas:
Nutrition – They eat a low-fat, low-sugar diet composed of lots of fruits and vegetables, and they do not count calories.
Exercise– They are physically active and commit to making exercise the first thing they do every day.
Education – They self-monitor with weigh-ins. Understanding what is going on inside you, backed with innovative and groundbreaking educational courses gives you the advantage you need to succeed.
“Anyone trying to lose weight and regain their health needs to pay attention to these factors,” says Sorenson, founder and director of the National Institute of Health and Fitness (NIHF), which is hosted at the Zermatt and Homestead Resorts in Midway, Utah. “You need to focus your efforts on fitness and nutrition, and you need to educate yourself on techniques for maintaining your slimmer, healthier body.”
Many people have found it helpful to keep track of what they eat, especially in the beginning. They are often surprised at their own eating habits once they see it in black and white. Food diaries can help you see where you need to be cutting back and making changes.
“Many people fear they have to go hungry in order to lose weight,” says Sorenson. “But it’s a simple fact that you don’t need to starve yourself. At NIHF, we have a first-rate nutritional program that is guided by scientific research. And the meals are delicious and satisfying, so you can enjoy eating healthfully.”
