Achieve Your Weight-Loss Goals

For most people, extreme and restrictive diets are not an effective method for weight loss in the long run, as we have a tendency to return to old behaviors.

The key to achieving your long-term goals of weight loss and weight maintenance is through implementing key changes in your life, including healthier eating habits and a regular exercise routine.

Adding a weight-loss supplement to your diet regimen can also help you to achieve your goals, contributing to a reduced appetite, improved metabolism, and better elimination of toxins.

Here are some tips to get you started.

Decrease Calorie Intake with Healthy Meal Options

The best weight-loss plans begin with a healthy, balanced diet. Experts generally agree that your diet has more to do with weight loss than the amount you exercise, suggesting that the most effective weight loss is attributed to a combination of approximately 75% diet and 25% exercise.

Opt for healthy, natural meal options whenever possible. A diet high in lean protein and fiber will give you the energy you need to fuel your physical activity, while still promoting weight loss. "One ingredient" foods like nuts, seeds, beans, fish, meats, and vegetables are great staples in a healthy, balanced diet.

Build Muscle to Accelerate Calorie Burn

In order to lose weight, the idea is to burn more calories than you consume. While dramatic weight loss is most often attributed to healthier eating and reduced calorie intake, studies show that one of the best ways to maintain your weight once you reach your goal is to be engaged in regular physical activity.

When devising an exercise routine, many people rely too much on cardio thinking this is what will help them burn more calories. However, many fitness experts have found that building muscle is more effective than cardio for burning fat. This is because the majority of the calories you burn in a day are due to your resting metabolic rate (RMR), and building more lean body mass through weight training contributes to an increased RMR – much more than cardio. One fitness expert estimated that you can expect to burn an extra 120 calories per day for every three pounds of muscle you build—and that’s calorie burn without incorporating any exercise!

Consider Weight Loss and Weight Maintenance Supplements for Assistance

While weight-loss supplements are not recommended as a solitary method for weight loss, they can aid in your overall weight-reduction plan. BodyHealth’s Optimum Weight Management Formula helps support weight loss when combined with a low-calorie diet. This special formula assists the body’s endocrine network, helping to accelerate fat burning and increase energy levels—all while preserving lean body mass.*

Once you have shed the pounds, you can try a weight-management supplement to aid in your long-term fitness plan. BodyHealth’s Healthy-Thin supplement helps to reduce appetite and curb cravings, improve metabolism, offers unique blood sugar support, decreases carb absorption, and helps rid the body of toxins released from fat burning, giving you that extra helping hand you need to maintain your body goals.*

The Truth About Increasing "Energy"
The Truth About Increasing "Energy"

by Dr. David Minkoff October 24, 2019 5 min read

Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”

The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”

But the truth?

Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.

But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.

Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.

That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.

From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year
From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year

It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” according to Andy Williams. Or should it be the most wonderFULL time of the year? I’m referring to the last 6 weeks of the year which is fraught with one nutritional landmine after another.

Let’s face it, things like pumpkin pie, stovetop stuffing, eggnog, pumpkin-spiced lattes, peanut brittle, homemade fudge, and divinity only make their appearance during this brief window so we might as well gorge ourselves with as much as we can, right?

No wonder the average American gains 2 to 5 pounds (or more) over the holidays. You’d think we were part bear by eating all…the…things before going into several months of hibernation. Unfortunately, this is a major reason people gradually gain weight over the course of years and decades. Gaining weight is easy while losing it is another story.
