Most approaches to weight loss are ineffective, as I explain in Smart People Don’t Diet: How the Latest Science Can Help You Lose Weight Permanently. While scientists know conclusively that typical diets do not work, there is less consensus about what does work. I summarize some of the latest evidence for a gradual, sustainable approach in my book, but different approaches may work for different people.
“Give me the brief summary of what I should do to lose weight,” people often ask me. to answer, I've turned to some of my favorite experts in the field—including a registered dietician, a nutritionist, and a weight loss coach—for their most essential advice. Surprisingly, no two people offered the exact same advice, but all of it was evidence-based.
Here are 7 pieces of advice that you may not have considered:
— Heather Robertson, life and weight loss coach
— Joe Dixon, Ph.D., associate professor of nutritional science, Rutgers University; author, Ancel and Margaret Keys and the Discovery of the Mediterranean Diet
— Peggy Policastro, M.S., registered dietician, instructor and director, Healthy Dining Team, Rutgers University
— Nicole Matsuk, M. A., community assistant in the SNAP-Ed program
— Lorie Sousa, Ph.D., CEO of SmartenFit
— Charlotte Markey, Ph.D., professor of psychology, Rutgers University; author, Smart People Don’t Diet: How the Latest Science Can Help You Lose Weight Permanently
