Losing weight is exciting. If you’re doing it healthily, it means you’re making better choices for your long-term health, reducing your chances of illness down the road, and probably feeling loads better. Fantastic!

There’s a long-held belief that rapid weight loss is not sustainable. You’ve probably heard the standard 1-2 pounds of weight per week is the healthiest way to lose over time.
