weightlossnewyear.jpegWith the new year upon us, gyms everywhere are now flooded with people eager to shed winter weight gain and embark on their healthy New Year resolutions. Many of these people go through their weight loss journey solo, without any medical or fitness professional to steer them in the right direction. That’s part of the reason why so many quickly give up on losing weight. 

The Medical Weight Loss Program at Advanced Spinal Care and Rehabilitation is a physician-supported, highly effective program designed to help you not only lose weight, but keep it off for good. By joining our weight loss program and following these useful tips for keeping yourself on track, you are highly likely to succeed in reaching your New Year weight loss goals. 

1. Get Acquainted With Our Accelerated Weight Loss Program

Our special program has a multi-pronged approach to promote accelerated weight loss. Our physicians will create a plan that’s comprised of:

  • Physical activities (including a local gym referral)
  • FDA-approved appetite suppressants to curb cravings
  • Customized diet plan 
  • Nutrition and fitness counseling
  • Hormone therapy to reduce caloric intake, protect muscles, and reset metabolism 
  • Fat burning injections with B-complex, vitamins, and amino acids to boost metabolism
  • Testosterone therapy to increase low testosterone levels (if needed)

2. Gather Accountability Buddies

When friends and loved ones know about your plan to reach a goal, they can help in two ways: offering support and holding you accountable. Tell as many of your friends, family members, and coworkers about your fitness goals to put a bit more pressure on yourself to succeed. Ask a few of them to periodically check in with you to ask how you’re doing. A little bit of moral support goes a long way!

3. Reward Yourself When You Reach A Goal

Every time you reach a short-term goal, whether it’s completing that daunting cardio workout or meeting your calorie limit for the day, reward yourself! Not with food, of course. There are plenty of fun ways to treat yourself, such as setting aside time to watch your favorite TV show, or taking a long, hot bath. Rewarding yourself with non-food items encourages you to keep going, and also reinforces the idea that rewards don’t always have to come in the form of food. 

4. Make A List of What You’re Giving Up

Sometimes it’s easier to make a list of things you don’t want to do. Once you figure out what bad habits or foods are standing between you and your weight loss goal, it’s time to commit to giving them up. Whether it’s too many sugary beverages or too much time spent in front of the TV, compile a list of all the things you want to cut out or cut back on. Put the list in a place that you will see every day so you have a daily reminder of your goals.
