Setting Out Your Reasonable ExpectationThe first important point to keep in mind is that the program, be it professional or commercial, is safe. If you should stick to a diet, it must include the RDAs (recommended-daily-allowances) of all protein, vitamins, and minerals while being low in calories (1,000 up to 1,200 per day). In addition, the best weight loss program is the one providing steady and slow progress unless you are in a specific health condition requiring for quick weight loss. One or two pounds loss every week after a couple of weeks starting the program is a good indication because you do not drop the mere fluid.
Signing Up a Commercial ProgramIf you feel completely healthy and simply want to shed some pounds, a commercial weight loss program is worth to try. You need to probe the program inside out, yet, including detailed statements of fees as well as costs of dietary foods or supplements, if available. You may want to ask these questions as well.
- Are you going to work the program with health professionals and qualified counselors, people like registered doctors, dietitians, and physiologists?
- Will you have suitable and flexible food choices?
- Will your weight loss goal set by you or the health professionals?
- Can you get the information on the percentage of other women completing the program?
- Among those who have completed the program, can you get the information on their typical weight loss in a year?
- Are you going to experience some kinds of side effects or other problems? Can you get the information on the types of side effects and the percentage of those who have experienced the problems?
- Once you will have lost your weight, will you get a sort of maintenance program to keep off the extra pounds?
