General Tips for Weight Loss Program

  • Don’t compare yourself to others. You are unique. All that matters is getting from where you are to where you want to be.
  • Eat breakfast, always. Don’t eat within two hours of going to bed.
  • Stay within the program. Don’t cheat. Be sure to record cravings that you have. If you do end up cheating, don’t beat yourself up about it. Just be sure to write it down so we can address it at the next follow-up visit.
  • Stay positive, have faith. Shake off discouragement. Replace the negative thoughts and feelings with upbeat, productive thoughts and feelings, which will be made easier by our removing trapped emotions.
  • Enjoy the program. If it ever feels like torture, that’s something we need to address.
  • Drink plenty of water. There are many reasons to stay hydrated. Don’t confuse hunger with thirst.
  • Avoid fast food, greasy food and soda pop. Where possible, avoid artificial sweeteners.
  • Focus on protein and vegetables.
  • Do not obsess about your current weight. Focus on the program, your health and keeping a positive attitude. This is more about health than what the scale says you weigh. You should only weigh yourself weekly… or better yet, let us do it in your weekly follow-up visit.
  • If you wake up at night and want a snack, just drink water. If you have trouble sleeping or crave food in the middle of the night, notify us and we’ll address it.
  • Setbacks may occur from time to time. This is normal. In fact, they can be helpful since we can use those as opportunities to learn more about your body and how it reacts to various changes. With each follow-up visit, we obtain more information about your body, remove more barriers to weight loss and further prepare you for lasting success.
