By the time February rolls around, it’s common for your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and get healthy to already begin to lose its sense of urgency. While many Americans resolve to lose weight and start a new health plan every year after the holidays, it’s always difficult to maintain motivation as the year progresses. How will you stay focused on your weight loss and fitness goals this year? Will you be in shape by the time summer is here? Here are a few of the top fitness and health trends of 2019 so far. Try one of these fads to jumpstart your fitness plans and not lose sight of your weight loss and health goals!
Goal for 2019: No More Diets!
As funny as it may sound, one of the big trends in diet and weight loss in 2019 is actually to stop dieting altogether. Sounds pretty good, right? More and more nutritionists are urging their patients to ditch their crash diets and short-term weight loss goals in favor of long-term, less extreme and overall healthier wellness plans in 2019. This advice makes sense, as nutritionist Karen Mark from Right Weigh Weight Loss estimates that 80-95% of all diets actually fail and often end with weight gain instead of weight loss. If you want to get healthy and lose weight in 2019, stop pushing yourself to achieve fast, short-term results. Instead, try to adopt an overall healthier lifestyle. If you make a few small changes, the weight will slowly come off and you will get healthier!
Low Carb/Keto Dieting Trend for Weight Loss
Keto Dieting has been around for several years, and this weight loss trend is still going strong in 2019 too! If you haven’t heard of it, Keto dieting is all about putting your body into ketosis, or fat burning state. For most people, ketosis is achieved with a low-carb, high-protein diet. Say goodbye to bread to achieve your health and weight loss goals in 2019!
Intermittent Fasting Diet Fad
Like keto and low-carb dieting, the intermittent fasting trend has been around for a few years now too. As the name suggests, intermittent fasting is all about restricting your food intake to just a few hours a day. Many people practicing this popular weight loss trend will only eat between the hours of noon and 6pm, for example. Fasting, or not eating, for long periods of time is the key to this weight loss plan. While it is difficult to go without eating, many people who practice intermittent fasting adjust to their new diet within a few days and speak highly about this weight loss technique. Are you up for the challenge?
