If weight loss is your goal, you should take notes and study the habits of people who know how to lose weight and keep it off!

In actuality, weight loss is easy;

itโ€™s keeping it off that is the hard part.

Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ve met a hundred people that have lost weight in their lifetime, but unfortunately, most of them gain it right back.

If you are hoping to lose weight or have already lost weight and plan on keeping it off then follow these 7 habits of people who lose weight and keep it off!

1. They Eat a Low-calorie Diet

One of the first habits of people who lose weight and keep it off is that they learn how to maintain a low-calorie diet.

Note here that I didnโ€™t write no-calorie, just low-calorie.

As I dietitian, I would never recommend than anyone eat fewer than 1,200 calories per day (food is our fuel, remember?), however people that have successfully lost weight and kept it off have simply learned to eat less than they used to.2

Theyโ€™ve learned to listen to their bodies rather than their stomachs and eyes and to eat just enough.2

2. They Eat More Fat

One of my favorite diet tips to tell people trying to lose weight is to eat more fat.

Most people are in disbelief when I tell them this;

however, healthy fats are one of the best weight loss foods around.

Even though they are higher in calories per gram (9 calories per gram) than both carbohydrates and protein (4 calories per gram), fat is much slower to digest causing you to feel much more satiated thus eating less overall.2

Foods like nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocados, etc.

are great to add to dishes and to snack on in small amounts throughout the day.2
