Fluid Consumption Staying hydrated is key to successful weight loss and maintenance, and drinking plain water is optimal. Strive for a minimum of 8, 8 fl oz of water each day (about 64 fl oz or more). If drinking plain water is a challenge try adding in a slice of lemon, lime or orange to add a hint of citrus flavor. Other great zero calorie options for flavoring water include adding a few slices of cucumber and herbs such as mint or basil for added freshness and sweetness.
Multivitamin When consuming less than 1200 calories or any restricted calorie program it is recommended that a multivitamin also be consumed in order to achieve proper nutrition. Consult with your physician, surgeon or dietitian to determine which one is best for you and your nutrition needs.
Exercise Program Weight loss is achieved when nutrient intake is balanced with daily movement and exercise, as tolerated and prescribed. RKane Nutritionals offers some basic movement plans to help strengthen your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems, however, always consult your physician or surgeon before starting this or any other weight loss program to ensure safety.
