Having a weight loss goal can be a good way to motivate yourself towards healthier eating. However, in general a maximum of 2 pounds per week would be the most a health care provider would suggest losing, depending on your growth and medical history. In order to begin the process of healthy eating, refer to our healthy eating guides:
If you find that you are consistently eating past the point of being full, consider meeting with a registered dietitian who can help you figure out the right amount to eat for your body and activity level. If you find that you are eating when you’re not hungry due to stress or other emotions, consider meeting with a therapist to discuss alternative coping tools.
