Clinic Diet: A weight-loss program for life
Mayo Clinic's approach to weight loss — indeed the
true Mayo Clinic Diet — is more than a diet. It's a lifestyle that
can help you maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime.
Click on the picture to enlarge.
If you're overweight, you've likely tried many diet and
weight-loss plans, from the low-carb diet to the low-fat approach.
You might have even tried the Mayo Clinic Diet — or what you thought
was the Mayo Clinic Diet.
But whatever the method, you may not have had much success and
are still trying to lose weight. That's not surprising. Most people
who diet find weight loss a never-ending roller coaster ride.
That's where Mayo Clinic's weight management program can help
you. This approach to weight loss isn't a diet. It's a lifestyle
program that can improve your health and help you maintain a healthy
weight for a lifetime.
Not just another diet
Mayo Clinic's approach to weight loss — indeed the true Mayo
Clinic Diet — is based on Mayo Clinic research and clinical
experience. It recognizes that successful, long-term weight
management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the
pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health.
This Mayo Clinic Diet, if you want to call it that, has a simple
goal — to help you adopt a long-term lifestyle that allows you to
achieve and maintain a weight that's healthy for you. The Mayo
Clinic weight management program can be summarized in four essential
1. Eat well with the Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid
The Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid helps you adopt an
enjoyable eating plan that you never tire of — one that can last a
lifetime. That means no severe restrictions on the foods you eat and
no extreme hunger. The base of the pyramid focuses on generous
amounts of healthy foods that contain a small number of calories in
a large volume of food, particularly fruits and vegetables. Healthy
choices in moderate amounts make up the rest of the pyramid, which
focuses on whole-grain carbohydrates, lean sources of protein such
as legumes, fish and low-fat dairy, and heart-healthy unsaturated
Use the pyramid to help you select the right kinds and amounts of
food. If you eat the recommended number of servings, use the proper
serving sizes and are physically active every day, the pyramid
approach can help you lose weight at a safe pace of 1 to 2 pounds a
2. Increase your physical activity
Being active — either through physical activity or through a
formal exercise program — is the next essential component of Mayo
Clinic's weight-control program. When you're active, your body uses
energy (calories) to work, helping to burn the calories you take in
with food you eat.
If you've been inactive or you have a medical condition, talk to
your doctor or health care provider first. Most people can start out
gradually with five- or 10-minute activity sessions and increase the
At the most basic level, physical activity means moving — every
motion of your body burns calories and is therefore beneficial.
Cleaning the house, making the bed, shopping, mowing and gardening
are all forms of physical activity. Exercise, on the other hand, is
a structured and repetitive form of physical activity that you do on
a regular basis. Exercise improves your fitness, as well as helps
you lose weight and deal with everyday stress.
Whatever activity you choose, the key is to commit to doing it
regularly. Aim for 30 to 60 minutes of moderately intense physical
activity most days of the week. Moderately intense activity or
exercise should increase your heart and breathing rates and possibly
lead to a light sweat. Brisk walking and yard work that entails near
constant motion are examples of moderately intense activity.
Goal setting provides focus and the path to achieve a healthy
lifestyle. With a clear goal, you can readily turn your thoughts
When setting goals, focus on specific activities rather than
pounds lost. For example, you might decrease the number of servings
of high-fat foods in your diet and increase your intake of fruits
and vegetables. Or you might begin walking or jogging a specific
number of miles each week. You might start keeping a daily food and
activity diary. Make sure your goals are specific, measurable and
realistic so that you're able to reach them.
Set weekly or monthly goals, and then track your progress. At the
end of the time, gauge your success by how well you've stuck to your
plan rather than on how many pounds you may have lost, which of
course is the ultimate goal.
4. Get started and stay motivated
Motivation is the final essential component of Mayo Clinic's
weight-control program. It's natural to encounter mental roadblocks
and resistance when you undertake a major lifestyle change. Once
you're ready to get started, here are some strategies to help
bolster and sustain your motivation:
- Emphasize the positives.
Focus on the good things about losing weight — such as more
energy and improved health — and not what you consider the
negatives. If you have a setback, don't dwell on it. Put it
behind you and move forward toward your goal.
- Prioritize. Don't set
yourself up for failure by trying to lose weight while
distracted by other concerns.
- Steer clear of dietary gimmicks.
Over-the-counter pills and special food combinations aren't the
answer to long-term weight control. You want to incorporate
healthy behaviors into your lifestyle, not rely on gimmicks.
- Seek out support. Don't feel
you have to go it alone. Exercising with a friend or family
member, for example, can help keep you motivated.
- Remind yourself you're not looking
for a quick fix. Healthy weight loss is slow and steady
weight loss that occurs over time. Remind yourself that quick
weight loss is usually followed by weight regain a short time
Achieving a healthy weight takes continuous effort — or more
correctly, good planning and consistency — but the rewards are
clear: better health and more enjoyment from life. Over time, these
steps will become a sustainable healthy lifestyle based on proper
nutrition and increased physical activity. You'll feel better
immediately and reduce your health risks. More importantly, this
change in lifestyle can be an enjoyable way for you to live.
