Weight-Loss Tips from Our Experts

Madelyn Fernstrom, PhD, director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Weight Management Center: "Remember this: Weight loss is like a flight of stairs. Your weight goes down, then stabilizes, or plateaus. To get to the next 'step,' trim 100 calories from your whole day by leaving a bite or two on your plate during each meal."

Monica Vazquez, master trainer for New York Sports Clubs in New York City: "Try bikram, aka hot, yoga once a week to help strengthen and stretch muscles important for running. The deep stretching helps to loosen hip muscles that tend to get really tight in women."

Mary Jane Detroyer, RD, dietitian and exercise physiologist in New York City: "Get preworkout carbs without feeling full by sipping a yogurt fruit smoothie. It's an easy fuel-up if you eat gluten-free."
