When you first decide to get healthier or even pursue a medical weight loss plan, you might suspect that ditching your screen time is in order. Most of us do spend way too much time watching TV or scrolling on social media. Aside from wasting time, too much sedentary activity slows our metabolism and can contribute to weight gain. So you’re right that reducing screen time is a good idea. On the other hand, there are plenty of ways that your smart phone and even your television can become a powerful aid to your medical weight loss plan!
Botox has been around for years, and is still one of the most popular anti-aging treatments. But there are still plenty of misconceptions floating around. The truth is, you probably know several people who are getting Botox treatments… And you don’t even know about it! People tend to be tight-lipped about their anti-aging treatments, and that’s why you’ll still hear these myths.
You probably know many people over age 60 or so. And you might have noticed that people tend to age in drastically different ways. One person is still running marathons at 70, while another has already been diagnosed with numerous health problems at 60. So how can you ensure that you’re one of the lucky ones?
There’s no way to guarantee that, because some things are based on genetics (which you didn’t choose) and luck (and no one would choose bad luck). We do know that certain choices and habits can speed up or slow down the aging process, or make you more or less likely to contract certain age-related diseases, while other things simply help you manage your aging more comfortably.
It’s a tale as old as time: Every January, we make resolutions to improve our health, such as exercising daily or even following a medical weight loss plan. But by mid-March, and sometimes even sooner, 95 percent of us have dropped our goals and returned to old habits. If you want to avoid sabotaging your own New Year’s resolutions, watch out for these following six mistakes.
We all know that exercise becomes an important component of any medical weight loss plan. But just knowing that we need to do it usually won’t give us enough motivation to stick to an exercise routine in the long term. Most of us simply won’t do things that we don’t enjoy, at least not consistently and over any significant length of time.
So obviously, the secret to sticking with an exercise routine is to learn to love it. But for most of us, that’s easier said than done. If you’ve found yourself struggling to stick to an exercise routine, try these four tips to learn to enjoy it more.
Sometimes it seems that the holidays are all about food. They’re not, of course; we enjoy time with family and friends, too. But who are we kidding? Food is everywhere at this time of year. And for those following a medical weight loss plan, all that food presents a major temptation and a challenge to our health goals.
With numerous holiday parties approaching, you want to look your best. Maybe you’re hoping to meet a special someone, or maybe you just don’t want to be tagged in a bunch of unflattering photos on social media! And looking your best certainly never hurt your career. In today’s competitive job market, a more youthful and friendly appearance helps you with everything from interviews to sales pitches.
Maybe you’ve always wished you could be one of those people who runs for miles each day. Or maybe you’ve been walking as a part of your medical weight loss plan, and you want to step up your game. Or perhaps you want to participate in a charity walk/run event in the near future. Whatever your reasoning, it can be hard to know where to begin. If everyone could just get out and start running, we’d all be runners!
Our clients come to us for a medical weight loss plan that will help them drop unwanted pounds and keep them off. But just as with any other nutrition plan, medical weight loss only works as well as you understand and follow the strategy. So when we talk about calories, carbs, protein, and fat, learning about nutrition is only the first step. You must know how to read and interpret food labels, or else things (like your daily calorie allotment) simply won’t “add up”.
