An article in the Canadian Family Physician Journal today by senior editor Roger Ladoucer highlights his experience as a doctor helping patients successfully lose weight by focusing on healthy lifestyles. Ladoucer explains that this approach is more effective than just telling them they need to lose some weight.
Weight management program Dallas is another example of a physician led program that focuses on several important health factors and working with individual on a personal level.
However, there are still many traditional diet programs that feature quick weight loss goals by setting low daily caloric limitations. A low calorie diet with 1100 calories or even less can be very difficult and stressful for patient and often is a recipe for failure. Certainly diet is important to losing weight, but in order for the diet to be effective it needs to be part of a mindset that the patient can learn to adapt over the rest of their life.
Ladoucer also explains that healthy lifestyle choices lead to higher esteem, which is fundamental to losing weight and keeping it off. The first step in this process is to pay attention to what you eat. Every day, we hear more about the dangers of processed food. Our supermarkets are full of easy meals complete with calorie count and chemical ingredients. While their caloric information may help with the traditional diet, most foods that come in a package will not help you with long-term weight goals.
