Nutrition and the Keys to Permanent Weight Loss

The two primary keys to permanent weight control are proper nutrition and adequate activity levels.  Let’s address the issue of proper nutrition first.

One often overlooked aspect of weight control is that many overweight people are actually undernourished.  They may be overfed (taking in too much of the wrong kinds of foods, or non-foods), but they are often are undernourished in that they do not eat enough of the right kinds of foods and are therefore lacking in necessary nutrients.  To help you understand this, let’s explore the relationship of food to the body.

The body requires fuel for energy, growth and repair, and other bodily processes such as temperature regulation.  Such fuel is supplied in the form of food and is measured in calories.
