If you’re trying to lose weight, check out these simple rules: keep a food journal, don’t skip meals and try to avoid restaurant lunches. That’s the advice from Dr. Anne McTiernan, researcher and director of the Hutchinson Center’s Prevention Center, according to a news release.
McTiernan and other researchers recently published a study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that focused on diet and weight changes of overweight and obese postmenopausal women.
Their findings include:
- When women kept food journals consistently, they lost six pounds more than those who did not.
- Women who skipped meals lost seven pounds fewer than those who ate regular meals.
- Women who ate lunch at a restaurant at least once a week lost five fewer pounds than those who ate out less often.
