3 is the magic number

The Federal Trade Commission says that 95% of Americans who begin a weight loss program regain ALL or MORE of the weight they lost. That is depressing dude! So what are we supposed to do?
Here is another fun fact for you. According to the National Weight Control Registry there are 3 things that people who lost 60 pounds or more and KEPT it off for more than 5 years had in common:
1. They exercise! Not just any exercise, but they exercised 5 days per week for an hour a day on a consistent basis. If you have a lot of weight to lose, you also  have a lot of work to put in.
2. They eat breakfast every day. It is the most important meal of the day for a reason. It is right in the name. It breaks your fast. Think about how long you go in between meals if you eat dinner at 6pm and then breakfast at 6am. 12 hours! Now think about if you don't eat until lunch time. It could be 18 hours between meals. Going too long in between meals is not good for you. You tend to eat more junk, your metabolism slows down, and you will not have as much energy. Eat your breaky.
3. They keep food journals! Seems like somebody else said that was pretty important too. Who was that dashing red headed man? Be like Nike and just do it, it's that important.
