Are you starting the new year off with pants that are a little too snug? Feeling sluggish from too many holiday treats and cookies? Or are you just looking to kick off a new weight loss and fitness plan? You should never feel like you have to wait for a New Year’s Resolution to make a healthy change in your life, but whatever your inspiration, it’s always the right time to make changes for the better.
If you are new to weight loss and nutrition plans, it is always good to consult your doctor before starting your journey. Come up with goals that are realistic for your age, health, and physical capabilities. While you’re visiting with your doctor, it’s good to have a physical exam conducted to understand your starting point and address any health problems that might need to be factored into your new lifestyle routine.
For some, it’s easy to take a weight loss and fitness journey on their own. Many people lean on tracking apps available on phones or computers, or journals to keep track of their food intake, exercise, weight loss, and any challenges they have on the way. Others find that supervised nutrition programs like Ideal Protein are easier to stick to, with a registered dietitian supervising and tracking their progress. The regimented nature of the food and exercise programs aids in participants fully changing their lifestyle.
While many people lose weight for purely aesthetic reasons, being at a healthy weight has the ability to change all aspects of your health and life, and The Woman’s Clinic is here to help achieve those goals. With individual assessments, your coach helps you out when you need it, and with sound nutritional advice, patients can truly change their lives here. Whether you have 10 pounds or 100 pounds to lose, the starting place is always the same - recognizing that it is time to take over your bad habits, change them, and learn to live a better lifestyle.
Ideal Protein, a nutrition and wellness plan offered at The Woman’s Clinic, has helped many reach their nutritional and weight goals. One of our patients, Tressie, decided to change her life after the Ideal Protein Open House at the Woman’s Clinic in 2015. After losing over 100 pounds, she has reported that she “feels so much better, has more energy, has a healthy BMI, and has lowered her blood pressure” through the Ideal Protein plan, exercise, and monitoring daily caloric intake. She followed the plan for roughly a year and has been on a maintenance plan for 5 months and has learned to keep the weight off on her own. If you’re looking for real results like hers, or even if you just want to get a better handle on your body and food choices, The Woman’s Clinic is here to help. Contact our dietitian to get started.
