Understanding Calorie Density and Weight Loss


You’ve heard it over and over again: the secret to weight loss is to take in fewer calories than you burn.

Understanding Food Labels


Food labels can be found on the back of just about any packaged food or drink. Food nutrition labels are a great way to keep count of calories, but did you know that they can help you keep track of all the nutrients in your food too?

Low Impact Activity for Weight Loss


Low impact activity is exercise that puts minimal pressure on the joints in your hips, knees or ankles. If you are struggling with your weight, this type of activity is perfect for you, especially during medical weight loss. Low impact activity gets your heart rate up without causing too much stress on your body. It can be relaxing at low intensities and beneficial towards your overall weight loss goals.

Controlling Emotional Eating


There are plenty of reasons why you might eat, other than hunger—you’re bored, stressed, anxious or angry and trying to find relief—but eating for those reasons is not only detrimental to any weight loss goals you may have, but it often leaves you feeling worse.

Sudha: 28.2 lbs. Weight Loss*


I started gaining weight after menopause when I was 55, and within 5 years it slowly reached 171 lbs. – my highest weight ever! I suffered from asthma due to pollution, had arthritis in my knees, high cholesterol and triglycerides, low HDL, hypertension and overall lacked energy. I had terrible pain in my knees all the time and had to use a cane for support while walking. I thought this was normal for a 60 year old… and that’s what aging does to people!
