Weight Loss Clinic Cary – Welcome to Total HealthcareMD
If you are looking for a weight loss clinic in Cary, NC, you have come to the right place. Let’s face it – most diets and diet plans don’t work. That is because treating overweight and obesity is complicated. Obesity is referred to as a “multifactorial disorder”. This means that there is no single cause for overweight or obesity. It is a combination of genetic, metabolic, psychosocial, environmental and behavioral factors. Therefore, no single technique for weight loss will be successful in all overweight individuals. “One size fits all” programs simply don’t work!
At our weight loss center in Cary, we have designed a unique, “state of the art” medical weight loss program that targets Obesity AND its related conditions. Patient care is individualized and we successfully target the underlying causes of your obesity. Patients receive individualized treatment, counseling and follow-up. Simply put we can help you lose weight, and get healthy.
Weight Gain – how do we gain weight? (4 Common Mistakes)
According to the American Heart Association, “The benefits of maintaining a healthy weight go far beyond improved energy and smaller clothing sizes. By losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight, you are also likely to enjoy a higher quality-of-life.1” Gaining weight doesn’t happen overnight. It is usually the result of weeks of even months of neglect – a significantly long period of eating a poor diet and doing little to no exercise. A decadent birthday dinner or a weeklong vacation won’t make you fat – but a consistent, unhealthy lifestyle can (and will!). What are some of the main factors that contribute to weight gain?
1. Eating out of boredom
When studying the hunger patterns of overweight people, the researchers found that in most cases, people reach for food not because they’re hungry, but because they are bored or looking for comfort. Follow this one simple rule – eat when you’re hungry! – and you will immediately feel the difference.
2. Skimping on sleep
Did you know that not sleeping enough (less than seven hours of sleep per night) can reduce or undo the benefits of dieting? In one study, dieters adopted different sleep schedules to test the effects on their weight loss. Interestingly, when their bodies received enough rest, half of the weight they lost was from fat; if they cut back on sleep, the amount of fat lost was cut in half! And that was when all of the dieters were on the exact same diet! Moreover, when they slept less, they felt significantly hungrier. This is because a lack of adequate sleep makes you crave food, decreases your satiation after meals and deprives you of energy to exercise. As you see, the connection between receiving enough sleep and weight gain is hard to ignore. Here at Total HealthcareMD, we believe that when it comes to sleep, both the quantity and quality matter!
3. Drinking soda and juice
Yes, we say that over and over again, but only because it’s true. Colorful soft drinks are full of sugar and nasty chemicals. Even all-natural fruit juices are loaded with sugar. Your body doesn’t need that. One can of soda can contain as much as 14 teaspoons of sugar, and one 8 oz. glass of orange juice has 102 calories.
4. Consuming too much sugar
Soda isn’t the only product that contains too much sugar. Most packaged, processed foods are guilty of adding much too much sugar into our everyday diet. Do you think that because you don’t have sweets every day your sugar intake is low? Have a look at the label of that pasta sauce in your fridge, or ketchup, or even breakfast cereals. They’re packed with sugar, even if the label doesn’t make it obvious (there are over 50 names for sugar that food industry uses in an effort to convince the customers that the product is ‘healthy’). Limit the amount of processed foods in your diet and you will see an immediate difference in the way you feel and look.
