One state has managed to buck the overweight trend: Colorado. Colorado is the leanest state in the nation. Why? It’s where diet, activity, and environment seem to perfectly intersect.
From their Denver-based research facility, leading weight-loss experts Dr. James Hill and Dr. Holly Wyatt set out to discover why Coloradans are so slim and how they stay that way. Their research led to an "aha moment"— the six simple habits that keep people in a state of slim.
Hill and Wyatt claim that there is proof that you can live like a lean Coloradan anywhere, using those six habits as the foundation for their revolutionary plan, the Colorado Diet. Unlike most diets, this plan focuses on what you need to do for long-term weight maintenance, which is different from what you do to just lose weight.
They key? You must repair your metabolism. If you don’t, you can drop pounds, but you won’t keep them off.
These two Colorado residents had intuitively uncovered the right blend of food, activity, and habits that keep metabolism in top working order. If you follow their lead, you’ll be able to actually eat more food and still stay at a healthy weight. The Colorado Diet is divided into three phases with very clear objectives: Reignite, Rebuild, and Reinforce your metabolism.
The 6 simple habits that keep you in a State of Slim:
- Be active every day
- Fuel up on real food
- Create your own healthy environment
- Stay true to your purposes
- Keep a positive mindset/believe you can succeed
- Make healthy living fun
