Fitness expert Janice talks about the K,L, M, N of the ABC’s of staying slim. K is for Ketosis -- the point at which your body runs low on carbs and starts burning fat stores for fuel. L is for Leptin -- fat secretes this hormone to tell your brain you’re full. Researcher have found that fasts and some diets lower leptin levels, prompting you to eat more. To keep this hormone in balance, make sure you lose no more than 1 or 2 pounds per week. M is for Milk --- you might get better results from your workout if you drink skim milk. N is for Numbers -- nobody enjoys weigh-ins, but research shows that people who hop on a scale once a day are more likely to lose and to maintain their loss.
