Great Harvest Bread
Real Food. Real People.

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to set new goals; start saving for that thing you want so bad, spend more time with your loved ones, but there is one resolution that’s very frequent and everyone carrying a bit of holiday overweight wants and that is: losing weight.

A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that one out of three adults on the US are obese. Thats 35.7% of the population!

But don’t worry here at the Great Harvest Bread Company in Spokane we’ve created a few recommendations to get you started! Please remember to ask your doctor before starting any special diet or physical activity!


Remember “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” so you don’t have to start jogging three miles on your first day! If you start by walking around your neighbourhood for 15 minutes that should be a good start!

If walking or jogging aren’t your thing there are a lot more activities that will help you to get fit; swimming, dancing, yoga. The options are endless! So chose that activity that you enjoy the most and do it at least 3 times a week.

Healthy Diet

Physical activity must be combined with a balanced diet! It’s very important to keep a record of what you eat and it should include the right quantity of each food group. It’s very important that you don’t skip meals and have a healthy snack between them!

Also, try to start eating whole wheat bread not only because its high fiber content and health benefits but also for its delicious flavor!


Discipline is an important factor but to keep going you have to see some results! Small victories will take you to your main goal! So everytime you reach one treat yourself with non-food rewards! Every once in a while it’s not wrong to have that burger you’ve been missing, just avoid that to become an habit! 

By now you probably realized that there are no magic tricks! It’s all hard work and motivation. But you are not alone!
