Healthy Living On Smartphone Showing Health Diet And Medical Care

When it comes to losing weight and maintaining your results, lifestyle is everything. When you’re dieting or following one of our weight management programs, it’s essential to adopt a healthy lifestyle so that your results last for the long-term. The good news is, you can make small changes in what you consume that will make a big difference in your weight and help you transform your lifestyle into one that’s much healthier overall.

Adopt these five tips to get closer to your goals for weight loss and healthy living.

1. Avoid high calorie, sugar-laden drinks. When it comes to calories, beverages can creep up on you without satiating your appetite. Steer clear from soda, sugary juices and sports drinks that are also packed with sweeteners and calories. Avoid alcoholic beverages as much as possible, and opt for white wine spritzers and drinks without sugary mixers when you do imbibe.

2. Swap refined grains out with whole. Avoid the refined grains that appear in white breads, pastas, rice and baked goods and instead opt for whole wheat versions. The difference in taste is minimal and the texture can actually be preferable. You’ll increase your fiber intake and reduce your “bad carbs” consumption, resulting in healthier, less fattening meals.

3. Hydrate like crazy. Drink lots of water so that your body doesn’t mistake thirst for hunger, which is a very common occurrence. Proper hydration helps flush the toxins from your body, which is key when you’re trying to lose weight.

4. Eat a healthy, protein-rich breakfast. Make sure to start your day right with a protein-rich breakfast to rev your metabolism and give you energy for the day’s activities. This will also help prevent overeating throughout your day.

5. Add a form of produce to each meal. By adding produce to the mix, you’ll up your fiber intake and stay full for a longer time after each meal. You’ll also increase your consumption of antioxidants, which have an array of benefits that will improve your overall health.

I couldn't be happier! The staff is awesome... though I only have seen the doctor twice, I'm ok because the team is great! The only issue for me really is...
