How to Change Your Mindset When it Comes to Achieving Your Weight Loss Goals

weight loss planWhen it comes to losing weight, many health experts will be the first to say that a changed mindset is the only way to achieve success. But, this is easier said than done, and it can be quite hard to really change how you think when it comes to eating healthily and becoming more physically fit. To help with this transformative process, here are some tips on how to easily change your mindset for the better!

Keeping realistic goals
Losing weight may be your end goal, but having too broad of a goal can end badly. This is because if you are unable to reach it, you may feel a bit let down and not strive to reach exactly what you had hoped for. So, to prevent burnout or a premature end to your diet, keep your goals small and realistic!

Remove the notion of having a reward and punishment system
Punishments and rewards can be quite detrimental when it comes to losing weight. A punishment system can cause you to be too hard on yourself when making small mistakes in your weight loss plan, and a reward system can cause you to go overboard way too easily. As a way of practicing self-care, make sure to remove punishments and large rewards altogether, and to most importantly be kind to yourself!

Get rid of your calendar
Patience is a virtue when it comes to weight loss. The worst thing to do for your mental health is to give yourself concrete deadlines — such as “I will lose 30 pounds by May 15.” Instead, you need to fixate on achieving your healthy goals every single day such as eating nutrient packed food and you won’t need to worry about a timeline of goals. This is also important as a way to maintain your weight loss plan — as one study completed by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that half of all individuals were able to maintain their weight loss by watching their fat intake and counting calories.

Remember, achieving success with your weight loss plan requires a dramatic change in your mindset. If you are looking for more weight loss help, please don’t hesitate to contact our weight loss center for an extra boost!

How to Lose Weight Without Even Thinking: Part 2

healthy metabolismSo many people are put off by the word “diet,” as it connotes hard work, sacrifice, and in many cases, diminishing returns. However, this constant struggle can be easily changed with a different mentality — dieting doesn’t have to be exhausting! With the right focus and the right help, you’ll be able to eat what you want, have fun when you exercise, and change your lifestyle for the better.

In one of our previous blog posts, we went over some tips on how to lose weight without thinking about dieting 24/7. Here we expand our list, in hopes of giving you some inspiration for this summer!

Step one: 75% of your food intake should be food that grew or lived outdoors
Surrounding yourself with healthy food is the best way to resist temptation because that way you never see it! We live in a world of fried and processed junk food, so stick to a new rule of thumb and only consume food that is unprocessed and fits under the idea of “whole foods.” This includes grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Animal byproducts are also alright (yes, you can still eat cheese!), as long as they are eaten in moderation and are low in fat.

Step two: Know that what you eat is much more important than when you eat it
It can be all too easy to fall into the trap of fad diets as a way to save time. This, however, will set you back down the line as they don’t offer many long-term benefits and your weight loss is not usually sustained. So make sure to forget what you’ve heard about eating at night or in the morning, and instead focus on what you are eating instead. As long as you follow a healthy food diet and lead an active life, a healthy metabolism will follow!

Step three: Cut out the unnecessary fillers
If you want to stop at a coffee shop and grab your favorite drink, go right ahead. Just cut down on the sugar and fillers. You’ll save calories and fat without even knowing, while still fulfilling your caffeine cravings!

Step four: Reach out for some extra help
Today, more than one in 20 adults are considered to have extreme obesity in the United States, and weight loss centers are exceptionally helpful in getting your healthy metabolism back and helping you to lose those few extra pounds. Just remember that not all weight loss centers are created equally! Look for weight loss clinics supported by physicians and other health care professionals.

For instance, our Louisville center for weight loss can help you reach your weight loss goals in no time at all! If you are looking for a health boost, call us today and we’ll sit down and create a plan with you.

Having Issues Losing Weight And Keeping It Off? A Weight Loss Clinic Can Help

help with losing weightObesity and unhealthy weight levels are a common affliction in the world today, with more than one in three adults considered to be obese, and two in three considered overweight or obese. Weight loss is hard, however, and despite the push for healthier living, it isn’t as easy as sticking to a weight loss plan.

That’s why many people need to get help with losing weight.

Weight loss clinics are staffed by individuals that have a deep knowledge of the key aspects of losing weight, specifically the necessary food and exercise needed to do so, and can gear this knowledge to directly work with you.

Not everyone loses weight the same way, as no two bodies work the same way. That’s why understanding how your body works can be one of the key components of losing, and keeping off, weight.

But how does a weight loss clinic help with losing weight? What do they do?

The clinic will likely begin with a consultation, during which there will be a full blood panel was taken, a reading of your blood pressure, an EKG, BMI, and a first weighing of your weight at that time. Finally, you’ll have an individualized meeting with a professional to determine your personal goals for weight loss. After the consultation, you will meet with a weekly group of health professionals.

These health professionals will help you to develop and maintain weight loss habits, as well as motivate you in ways that will help you reach your weight loss goals. Their goal is to help you reach the desired weight safely.

They will also help you to maintain the weight once you’ve met your goal, with a weekly meeting with a consultation and those same health professionals. They will provide you with specific assistance while you’re slowly increasing how many calories you can take in per day.

They will teach you techniques and tools to maintain your current weight, to prevent those extra calories from setting you back on your goal.

It is estimated that 90% of all people that have used a professional weight loss program and been successful in losing weight have gained that weight back if they are not involved in a wellness program. A weight loss clinic will include this as part of your program.

The same team of professionals will develop a wellness program with you to keep you healthy long into the future.

So if you need help with losing weight, or have questions on losing weight, feel free to contact us. We’ll be happy to help.
