When you have reached the healthy, slim, trim weight you want to acheive, you will have begun
to develop the good eating habits that can keep you trim for a lifetime. Following the general Keep-Trim Program, you can
be your own guide and enjoy the foods and beverages of your choice within the sensible guidelines setup. Of course, you will
have to observe moderation always.(p.23)
THE FOUR-POUND STOP SIGNAL
There is no more useful ritual to add to your personal health
program than a daily weighing-in.
For cardiac patients it is essential; for the rest of us it is extremely helpful. Weigh
yourself, a la mode, every morning; if you do it with clothes on, you begin to kid yourself that the extra pound and a half
is really your shirt or blouse. Any time that your scale hits four pounds over your desired weight, reach for SMD-quickly.
Stay on it until the four pounds are gone. It shouldnt take a week.(p.23)
While using the Keep Trim Basic Rules as your
guideline, you can incorporate certain healthful foods, such as whole grains, beans, and olive oil back into
your diet. You should make lifetime choices to swear off white bread and pasta, and always
choose whole wheat pasta, and whole grain breads instead.
Read all ingredients and avoid processed foods.
Eliminate sweets from your daily diet and save them for special occasions only.
Incorporate regular exercise into your life, by participating
in an activity you enjoy, and keeping busy and active.
