cent are keeping it all off, and a
good one-third are keeping a sig-
nificant amount off.
"Sure it's tough. The key is to
set realistic goals, avoid severe
caloric deprivation (of 800 calo-
ries or fewer daily) and exercise."
The best form of exercise?
While aerobic exercise burns the
most calories, strength-building
exercise may have the most sig-
nificant long-term impact on
weight management because it
lean muscle mass.
The more lean muscle mass,
the more calories burned.
But dieters often become dis-
couraged when implementing a
strength-training program, be-
cause the results often are not
readily apparent on the scale.
"One of our patients lost nine
pounds of fat weight and gained
two or three pounds of lean tis-
sue," said Ralph La Forge, an ex-
ercise physiologist at the San
Diego Cardiac Center.
"You'll lose less body weight
with strength training, but you'll
lose more fat. Unfortunately, self-
esteem and self-worth is tied into
the scales." •
More important to health, and
appearance, is the fat-to-muscle
ratio - which is determined not
by scales, but by such measure-
ments as a skin-fold assessment.
Acknowledging the impor-
tance of such exercise is one
thing, doing it is another.
"It's natural for us to sit and
eat, watch TV and eat, play TV
games and eat rather than do
what we did 100 years ago: eat
three times a day and work out
in the fields," said Dr. Kalman
Holdy, medical director of Sharp
Weight Management and Clini-
cal Nutrition at Sharp Memori-
al Hospital in San Diego.
"The key is lifestyle changes.
We don't have the magic key,
but 33 percent of the population
wasn't overweight 90 years ago."
An example that lifestyle
change can make a difference is
Nancy Jean Dunlap, catering di-
rector at a Holiday Inn. She has
lost 22 pounds and 16 inches
overall since November, she says.
The key? Carefully combining
low-fat foods, walking daily and
practicing a form of self-massage
designed to mobilize stored fat.
"You have to be realistic," said
Ms. Dunlap, who intends to drop
another 25 to 30 pounds to reach
her recommended weight. "At 50,
I'm not gonna be the junior prom
queen. And I can't go back to
when I was 17 and ate every
rolled taquito in sight without
"I made a big change in the way
I eat. But you can't eat nothing but
carrot curls and lettuce or you'll
feel deprived and go off on a binge.
"The hardest thing is to stay
