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

Fall Back into Fitness at The Clinic

The Clinic By Dr. H focuses on the process of helping individuals live a healthier lifestyle. A weight loss journey is not always easy and  it certainly takes a particular amount of effort. The weight loss process focuses on certain elements that are psychological, physical, education, and emotional.

Our goal is to have you and your partner to develop and work hard together and to use each other as motivation. If you sign up together then your partner will get 50% at sign up.

Healthy Eating for Fat Loss

Eating right is key to being healthy and losing the weight you want to lose. We like to emphasize eating lean protein, nonfat dairy products, lots of high fiber fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. In addition, we encourage people to learn how to count calories and write down everything that you eat. We like to aim for 30 to 35 percent protein, 40 to 45 percent carbohydrate, and 20 to 30 percent fat. By counting calories, you can successfully reach these targets accurately.

Lean-Protein

Specifically, you want to know what is good to eat and what is not so good within your macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fats). For example, when consuming carbohydrates you want to eat fresh fruit, vegetables, and grains (in moderation). When consuming proteins you want to eat chicken, turkey, egg whites, fish, and a limited amount of red meat. Vegetarians can eat beans, legumes, tofu, and soy burgers. When consuming fats you want to  avoid bad fats such as butter and cheese and instead eat good fats such as almonds, avocados, walnuts, olive oil, and pecans.

Beliefs Versus Facts

In today’s technology filled world, with information floating all over the place, it can be hard to differentiate between what is fact and what is just a popular belief with no truth. Is diet important? Is exercise important? How fast can I lose weight? Do I need surgery to be healthy? In my book Where Did All The Fat Go?, I outline what is true and what is false. Here, I am going to give you a little preview:

118myths

#1: Some people believe that all weight loss is good, no matter the method.

This could not be further from the truth. When losing weight, you can lose fat mass or lean body mass (muscle, bone, fluids). You DO NOT want to lose your lean body mass. Instead you want to make sure you are making steady progress in losing your fat mass while never exceeding below essential fat levels (below 3 to 5 percent body fat in men and 12 to 15 percent in women).

#2 Gastric bypass surgery is necessary for morbidly obese adults and children (those with a body mass index over 40).

You can pay $25,000 for a surgery that will leave you with a 40% chance of postoperative complications, or you can choose a nonsurgical option that you can do at home. One of our contestants in The Biggest Loser who was considered “beyond-morbidly-obese” was able to drop from 51-percent body fat to an amazing 22 percent, while getting rid of his hypertension, sleep apnea, and weight-related ankle and foot problems. Surgery is not always the solution.

Obviously, there are myths and uneducated people out there. You need to understand truth from myth in order to make the most out of your life. You can find more of these myth-busters in my book Where Did All The Fat Go?.
