Eat to lose

It may seem counterintuitive, but to achieve lasting weight loss, you have to eat.


Ken lost 50 pounds, in part because he made some simple nutritional changes. Those include eating several small meals each day, even if it’s just a handful of nuts, which keeps his body fueled and his energy levels high. Ken’s typical breakfast consists of bacon, eggs, fresh fruit and coffee. Then he has a midmorning snack, which is usually a protein bar. For lunch, he has a salad or vegetables like carrots or celery, and hummus. Dinner includes more fresh vegetables and lean meat like pork, chicken or fish.
