What to Do When Your Doctor Says It's Time...


Doctor Pointing to Scales

Every year, you dreaded heading to your doctor’s office for your annual physical. While sitting opposite your physician, you always worried this professional would bring up your weight problem. Until now, you’ve somehow escaped this needed confrontation. Unfortunately, during a recent appointment, your doctor warned you that your blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels were dangerously high. To combat these issues, your doctor advised you to lose weight. If you can relate to this scenario, you might not know what to do next. While you realize it’s time to make important changes in your life, you may not possess the knowledge necessary to accomplish these goals.

To successfully lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume. To help you meet this challenge, strive to limit your consumption of calorie, fat, sodium, and sugar laden processed foods. Instead, opt for real, delicious foods including: 

  • Fruits,
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Lean meats
  • Low-Fat dairy products 

Avoid skipping meals. If you become hungry between mealtimes, reach for smart, healthy snacks. Start a food journal to help you track areas of strengths and weaknesses. Consider enlisting the help of a weight loss partner. Working on a common goal with someone else can be fun and rewarding. Whenever you’re tempted to buy your favorite brand of ice cream, you can call your buddy in order to receive some much needed encouragement. The two of you can also burn some serious calories while exercising together. Whenever you try to skip a gym visit, your weight loss partner can hold you accountable.

For some people, losing weight, and keeping it off, seems like an impossible dream. Thankfully, armed with the right information, you can successfully reshape your body and improve your health. If you need help jump-starting your weight loss journey, consider scheduling a free consultation at a Metabolic Research Center near you.

This has been one of the most positive experiences of my life! I've tried every fad diet that has come and gone over the years and ended up gaining all of the weight I lost...plus some more! I had heard about MRC through a friend that had lost 20 pounds in about 2 weeks! I knew I had to check it out! I started in May 2016 and here it is October 2016 and I've lost a total of 73.5 pounds...So far!!! I praise MRC for the hard work and determination that they provide. If you are feeling hopeless go to MRC they are here to help and cheer you along the way!
