The Clinic is Here to Help You Succeed!

Here at The Clinic by Dr. H our goal is to make sure you come out a better version of yourself. A weight loss journey is not an easy one to embark on and most times we need that extra push from someone to get through it. Our team of professionals has one goal and that is to help you succeed in your fitness journey.

We are proud of our work and it brings happiness to our lives when we get feedback on what The Clinic has done for one of our clients. One of our previous clients credits the Clinic for improving her stamina and health. She credits the clinic for being able to walk through a trail that is equivalent to 400 steps for an hour in 90 degree heat. Something that she admits she could not do before her stay at The Clinic.

Stay tuned for updates on our next session here at The Clinic by Dr. H

Curing Diabetes With a Healthy Lifestyle

Type Two diabetes is something that can be developed over time due to poor eating and exercise habits. Conversely, it is also something that can be reversed through smart and effective eating and exercise habits. However, the problem here lies in the fact that far too many people rely on prescription drugs or medical surgeries to turn their health around, rather than sticking to the basics and living a healthy lifestyle.

First off, to understand if you are at risk of type two diabetes you need to know your numbers. This refers to your cholesterol level, BMI, blood pressure and body fat percentage. Once you know this things you will have a better picture of your overall health and you will be able to better assist your risk of type two diabetes and your course of action.

Nearly 70% of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. However, studies have shown that many of these drugs are treating issues that could be avoided by changing one’s lifestyle. So, the option is yours: try to improve your situation by taking drugs that could have adverse side effects and potentially leave you in a situation where symptoms may return, or cure yourself by changing the way you act, not putting anything harmful in your body and gaining knowledge that will last and benefit you for a lifetime?

At the Clinic we like to advocate for the latter. Rather than putting synthetic, man made drugs into your body or performing medical surgeries to improve your health, we believe in simply changing ones lifestyle for long-term results. This process begins with being proactive in tow aspects of your life. First, being considerate and conscious of what you eat and put into your body; and second, making an effort to burn calories through exercise. This simple formula, if effectively put to use, can turn your life around whether you are slightly overweight or suffer from type two diabetes. Ditch the drugs. Change your lifestyle.

Be Weary of Fat-Free Foods!

“Fat-free”, “low-fat”, “reduced fat”. You see these terms all over food labels but how much worth should we really put into these labels? Marketers are smart and they know that putting these terms on food labels will catch your attention and trick you into thinking you are purchasing a healthy alternative. Lets dissect why buying the fat-free version isn’t as good as you think.

First off, lets consider the fact that foods with fat are naturally going to taste better than their fat free versions. So how will food companies combat this? Although they may be taking the fat out of the product, they are filling it with all kinds of chemicals and artificial flavors to make up for the lack of taste. This means that you are putting synthetic, and unhealthy chemicals into your body.

Secondly, people fail to realize that eating fat isn’t the ultimate factor in gaining weight. You may think that by eating fat-reduced foods you will lose weight but you must realize that by eliminating the fat from their food, the companies will be adding  a lot more salt and sugar. These items don’t classify as fats but they sure do classify as added calories!

Lastly, often times people think that because they are eating a fat free food it justifies them to eat more of that food than they usually would. Studies have shown that eating fat-free foods will lead to ultimately consuming more calories than foods with fat!

Rather than falling for the marketing gimmicks of these food companies, avoid eating fat-free foods. Instead, make sure to consume a balances diet with healthy fats such as avocados, nuts, and salmon.

Tips for Buying Fruit

Confused about how much fruit to buy? Which fruits to buy? When to buy fruit? Keep reading to find my recommendations on the subject.

First off, following these guidelines you will need one shopping trip per week. During that trip you should purchase three different colored portions of fruit for each day (preferably one high in vitamin-C), which translates to 21 portions per week. As far as freshness goes, Monday fruit has short shelf life and should be consumed during the first day. Wednesday fruit has a longer shelf life and should be consumed midweek. Lastly, Friday fruit has the longest shelf life and should be eaten at the end of the week or later.

As a safety option, be sure to stock up on a variety of frozen fruit. The taste of these fruit may not be as good as prime fresh fruit but you will still be getting a nearly identical nutrient value because most of these products are flash-frozen immediately after picking. Also, buying fruits in bulk can be a lot easier on your wallet.

An important trick when buying fruit is to accurately decipher the pricing schemes that stores put in place to confuse consumers. Often times stores sell fruit in 4.4, 5.6, 11, 12, 15, and 16-ounce baskets in an effort to confuse customers on how much they are getting for how much they pay. Some fruit can even go for over 22 bucks a pound! Take a calculator to the fruit section next time and you could rack up incredible savings!

Counting Calories

Although tedious, time consuming, and sometimes confusing, there is no better way to keep track of your intake other than calorie counting. You will learn the basics of portion size, calories, nutrition, and most of all recording everything you eat is a real eye-opener to yourself. Additionally, keeping a record gives your concrete information that will increase your awareness of physical versus emotional hunger. Lets look at the basics of calorie counting:

Equipment needed:

-Kitchen scale

-Measuring cups

-Food journal

-Calculator

-Pocket-sized calorie-counting book

When consuming food be sure to not be fooled by hidden calories. Often times one might think they are ordering something “healthy” at a restaurant, but more times than not the chef is adding sauce, gravy, oils, dressings, or butter that is adding a countless number of calories to your meal. This is problematic because it can cause you to drastically underestimate your caloric intake. Another hidden trick by the food industry can be revealed by simply reading nutrition labels. Often times we base what we think of a product on the cover, which can be extremely misleading. Be sure to check the labels to see exactly what you are putting into your body. Remember that counting calories will be complicated at first, but your first goal should just be to evenly spread out your caloric allotment between five or six meals and eventually counting calories will become second nature to you!
