Everyone wants a fast way to lose weight, but this can lead to unhealthy and even dangerous practices that damage the body.
Weight loss isn’t something that just happens; it’s a journey that you must take using reliable information and listening to your body’s needs. I encourage you to consider holistic weight loss approaches that focus on your overall long-term health.
If you are looking for a healthy way to lose weight, I would be pleased to help you define and achieve a goal that enables you to live a more active and fulfilling life. The right exercises, practices, and amount of calories to lose weight differ for each individual, which is why it’s important to establish a custom weight loss plan that is appropriate to your lifestyle and level of health.
Holistic weight loss is more than losing pounds. It centers on adjusting your food choices and habits to improve your lifestyle, maintain your goals, and avoid reverting back to your old habits. Your custom plan may include the following holistic practices, which can serve as a healthy way to lose weight without taking too much time out of your schedule:
- Acupuncture: While acupuncture doesn’t remove fat from the body, it affects the part of the brain that facilitates hunger, helping you to feel less hungry and promoting a “feel-good” response that reduces stress and, therefore, cravings. In particular, many patients who receive ear acupuncture lose weight because the process focuses on certain points of the ears that curb hunger.
- Diet supplementation: A diet plan to lose weight should include appropriate diet supplementation in the proper amounts to fill the holes in your nutrient needs. It’s important to receive reliable recommendations to ensure supplements provide safe levels of vitamins and nutrients and work with your body to achieve your health goals.
- Meditation: While taking action such as finding a healthy diet to lose weight is important, you can work toward your weight loss goals by staying still and meditating. Taking a few minutes to clear your mind first thing in the morning and right before bed can help you align your conscious and subconscious mind to control emotional eating and ease stress hormones like cortisol, which otherwise signals the body to store its calories as fat. High levels of stress can impede weight loss even if you are working hard to practice healthy habits.
- Nutrition counseling: It’s very difficult to use the American diet to lose weight. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is full of sugary, fatty, and inflammatory food that adds unnecessary padding to the body and forces the organs to work too hard. Using designed clinical nutrition, I can help you identify where your diet may be lacking so that we can develop a program that naturally improves your health.
