Health Tip: Spotting the Signs of an Effective Weight-Loss Program

(HealthDay News) -- There are many great plans to help you lose weight in a healthy way, but also some that don't provide the safest weight-loss methods.

The U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases suggests looking for a plan that includes:

  • Long-term plans for weight maintenance.
  • Recommendations for how to incorporate regular exercise and healthy eating habits.
  • Support, feedback and monitoring that continues throughout your weight-loss journey.
  • Weight loss goals that are slow and healthy, around to two pounds per week. It's OK if it's a little more in the beginning of the plan.
