Weight loss ranks high on most people's New Year's resolution list. But, when the New Year is also the New Millennium, there could be greater pressure to turn typical weight-loss resolutions into significant milestones.
Ron Brown, author of The Body Fat Guide, says, "What better way to kick off the next millennium than with healthy lifestyle habits to permanently lower your body fat?" The problem is, many of us will find it difficult to keep those healthy resolutions for more than just a few hours into the New Millennium.
Brown admits, "It is easy to wake up on New Millennium day and announce that you will have new habits. But, chances are, if you fall back to your old pre-millennium ways by the end of the day, it's because you haven't given yourself enough time to progressively develop those new habits. You can't do it all on New Millennium day."
Brown suggests, "It's not too early to begin forming
New Millennium lifestyle habits now. It really doesn't take much discipline
and determination, as long as you use the right method. To lose weight and
develop the habits to keep it off, I suggest an objective method that follows
3 steps, which I call the 3 M's of Weight Management:
"Eventually," adds Brown, "your energy balance modifications will become new habits. And, you can do it all without following unbalanced diets or eliminating certain foods."
Brown claims his book, subtitled "The Easy Way To Analyze
Your Body Composition and Energy Balance," provides all the tools you need
to follow the 3 M's of Weight Management. Sounds like the perfect gift for
the last Christmas of this millennium!
