2020 was a hard year for many Americans. It was also considered a “weight gain year”, due to loss of employment, closing of gyms or recreational centers, depression and anxiety that came with the uncertainty of what might happen next. Although some of these reasons might ring true the reality of it is obesity has been described as an American Health Crisis for many years prior to Covid-19. It can affect many aspects of your life both physically and emotionally. The good news is that it is preventable and treatable.
Keys to Success
Get Educated-There is plenty of misconceptions about health, wellness, and fitness out there that are either outdated or being rebutted. Get informed about the lifestyle changes you need to make sense of, for you to reach your goals.
Prepare-Many people fail on their wellness journey before it even starts and that is due to lack of planning. Set yourself up for success by preparing ahead of time. This is with meal prepping, having a workout schedule, and regular consultations with your physician, especially if you take medications. We encourage our patients to always ask questions as we are committed to keeping you committed to your health.
Consistency and accountability-Changing habits that have been ingrained over long periods of time is challenging. Lifestyle changes can be difficult, but if you’re ready, there’s no better time to start than NOW!
Food is Fuel
The food you fuel yourself with is essential. From energy, your mood, your skin, to your personality, all of it starts with what you are putting on your plate. You might have heard this expression over and over but what does it mean? The simplest way to explain this is using a vehicle as an example. When you put the wrong kind of gas into your vehicle, it will still run, but not as efficiently as it would with the correct gas. And, over time things get clogged and start running poorly. This is the same concept with our body. When we feed our body the wrong foods, our body still functions, but we might be sluggish, tired, depressed, and over time health and medical issues surface such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancers.
Fuel your body right and it will run better for a longer period of time!
How important is Water?
There are many health benefits from drinking water. "Think of water as a nutrient your body needs that is present in liquids, plain water, and foods. All of these are essential daily to replace the large amounts of water lost each day," says Joan Koelemay, RD, dietitian for the Beverage Institute, an industry group.
Your minimum target should be half of your body weight in ounces per day. However, your goal should be your full body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 160 Lbs., your minimal consumption should be 80 ounces but you should aim for 160 ounces daily.
