  • How to lose weight and keep it off according to a doctor!

    How to lose weight and keep it off according to a doctor!

    Losing weight isn’t easy, but dropping pounds — whether a little or a lot — is one of the most common health and fitness goals. According to a CDC survey conducted from 2013–2016, nearly half of Americans reported trying to lose weight in the past 12 months. This desire to lose weight results in countless strategies and methods, with some grounded in good science and other quick fixes championed by questionable “gurus” and late-night infomercials. But recent research published in the Obesity journal attempted to identify effective behavioral and psychological strategies shared by people who were able to lose weight and keep it off. The study analyzed ....

  • 11 Myths You Need to Stop Believing about Weight Loss Spokane

    11 Myths You Need to Stop Believing about Weight Loss Spokane

    Myth #1: Weight Loss is the Same for Everyone
    Weight loss is more than just calories in minus calories out and the idea there’s one quick fix for lasting weight loss that works for everyone is misguided. Individuals differ greatly in their bodies, lifestyles, emotions and life experiences (and that’s a good thing). However, this means what might have worked for your friend or loved one won’t necessarily work for you and hopping on the fad diet bandwagon often backfires. Instead, you should focus on adding healthy habits you’ll be able to maintain long-term. Myth #2: Carbs are the Enemy
    Despite popular belief, carbohydrates do not inherently cause weight ....

    Are you eating enough for your weight loss goals? Here's 5 signs you aren't...

    If you’re trying to lose weight, it seems to make sense to cut as many calories from your diet as possible. Unfortunately, it’s possible to eat too little, which not only makes it harder for you to achieve a healthy weight, but it can also cause other health problems. In other words, eating below your needs can backfire big time. Everyone has a set amount of calories, or energy, they need to simply be alive. Consistently eating less than this can cause your metabolism to slow down and your body to begin preserving what it can to survive. Hunger and feeling full aren’t the only indicators of whether you’re fueling your body appropriately. Indeed, short and long-term ....

  • Weight Loss Principles that Cover Everything

    Weight Loss Principles that Cover Everything

    For anyone who wants to lose weight, there are two simple rules they need to follow: Rule #1: You must be in a calorie deficit.

Rule #2 You must sustain a calorie deficit for an extended period of time.
    Being unable to stick to a calorie deficit is where most people struggle. A typical approach that a lot of people use is to simply reduce their food ....

    The Problem with a Cheat Day

    Many registered dietitian's dislike the idea of cheat days. Not because of the thought of their clients shoving double cheeseburgers and donuts into their face for 24 hours, but because it puts foods in to "good" and "bad" columns.Here’s why associating morality with our food choices can trigger unhealthy eating behaviors and how to ditch the cheat day and focus on more helpful, positive eating strategies. THE PROBLEM WITH BLACK-AND-WHITE THINKING
    Categorizing foods as good or bad, healthy or unhealthy, sets us up for moral highs and lows that should never be associated with eating. Whenever a client confesses to being “bad” or “cheating” on their diet, ....
