Are you looking for a Austin Weight Loss Clinic?
A new year brings new resolutions. Many of us want and need to lose weight. However, this is very difficult to do on your own. Weight Loss Clinics exist to assist with this undertaking.
Weight loss is 95%+ diet. Exercise is for weight maintenance not weight loss. In fact, patients who exercise and try to lose weight, end up gaining weight. So changing your diet is the key to weight loss. No permanent change in diet, no permanent change in weight. The weight loss diet cannot be temporary. It must be a fundamental change in the way you eat and your approach to food. This is the hard part. You must undo years of bad eating and the influences of the big food companies. It is not easy, but it is very doable!
What is the best weight loss diet? Knowledge! The more you understand about what food is and how it affects you, the more weight you will lose. Beleza Medspa’s Medical Weight Loss Program does just that. The first fact to understand is that every pound of fat you need to lose contains 3500 calories. So if you need to lose 10 pounds, you must be negative 35,000 calories to do so. Even if your calorie intake is perfectly matched to what your body needs everyday, you will never lose a pound. You must go through a period of calorie restriction to lose the weight and reset your metabolism. Once you get to where you need to be, the calorie restriction can be eased.
The other important weight loss concept to understand is what food is. Food consists of 3 main nutrients, carbohydrates, protein and fats. Food is there simply to fuel your body. Understanding how these nutrients fuel your body is critical. If you are obese, you have plenty of stored fat to run your body. So during a restricted calorie diet, our goal is to use your stored fat for fuel to promote weight loss. It is also important to uncouple your eating from bad habits, boredom and depression. Food does not help these things. Eating to try to help these things will make you fat.
Once you lose the weight, we want to keep it off. This is where your knowledge of the main food nutrients comes in. Most of us become obese by eating too many carbohydrates. When you eat too many carbs, your body not only doesn’t burn your fat stores, it make more fat! So ultimately to keep the weight off, your diet must be heavy on fats and protein, and low on carbohydrates. This will shift your body into burning fat and maintaining your weight. This is also known as the Keto Diet.
