You've certainly heard your fair share of bizarre weight-loss advice over the years, whether it's to drink celery juice every day or to eat weight-loss "cookies" instead of meals. Those tips are frequently offered by people who have no medical training. (In other words, proceed with caution.)
But, just as there is a lot of bad weight-loss advice to avoid, there are also a lot of good, research-backed, and expert-approved solutions.
One such suggestion is to set aside time to exercise and adhere to it. According to a study published in the journal Obesity in July 2019, exercising consistently at a set time each day may help you sustain weight loss.
Another piece of sound advise is to choose nuts over excessively processed food. According to a study published in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health in December 2019, increasing your daily nut intake by half a serving (for example, from 12 ounce to 1 ounce) is connected to less weight gain and a lower risk of obesity.
Weight loss, for example, may help reduce your breast cancer risk. A comprehensive study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in December 2019 indicated that overweight women who lost weight after turning 50 had a decreased risk of acquiring breast cancer than those who maintained their weight.
