ABSTRACT
This article presents a study by Diane Berry, author of a Yale School of Nursing, which analyses 18 women who had lost 10 percent of their body weight and maintained the loss for at least one year. To shed pounds for good, she says, forgo fad diets and opt for tried-and-true tactics: working out for 30 minutes daily, filling half plate with vegetables, choosing whole grains, and identifying foods one tends to overeat. The key to maintaining weight loss is learning new skills, such as being aware of trigger foods and keeping portion control in check.
