Healthy Home Environment May Help Control Weight

According to a new research, if you have lost a lot of weight and want to keep it off, avoiding high fat foods and television sets might help, along with eating less and staying active.

People who had lost weight and maintained a normal weight for five years were much more physically active than overweight people who had not lost weight, researchers found.

Dr. Suzanne Phelan of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and her colleagues found that people’s home environment is also important. People who maintained weight had fewer TVs in their homes and less likely kept fatty foods in their homes.
