What's the best way to lose weight?
Pick up any diet book and it will claim to hold all the answers to successfully losing all the weight you want—and keeping it off. Some claim the key is to eat less and exercise more, others that low fat is the only way to go, while others prescribe cutting out carbs. So, what should you believe?
The truth is there is no “one size fits all” solution to permanent healthy weight loss. What works for one person may not work for you, since our bodies respond differently to different foods, depending on genetics and other health factors. To find the method of weight loss that’s right for you will likely take time and require patience, commitment, and some experimentation with different foods and diets.
While some people respond well to counting calories or similar restrictive methods, others respond better to having more freedom in planning their weight-loss programs. Being free to simply avoid fried foods or cut back on refined carbs can set them up for success. So, don’t get too discouraged if a diet that worked for somebody else doesn’t work for you. And don’t beat yourself up if a diet proves too restrictive for you to stick with. Ultimately, a diet is only right for you if it’s one you can stick with over time.
Remember: while there’s no easy fix to losing weight, there are plenty of steps you can take to develop a healthier relationship with food, curb emotional triggers to overeating, and achieve a healthy weight.
As our acupuncturist said, "Acupuncture will help you lose weight on a healthy way by helping on your digestion and metabolism but the long answer is that weight loss is multifactorial, during my 8 years practicing acupuncture I've seen a lot of people get into pitfalls, so I've developed an 8 week program in which you'll received acupuncture for weight loss but also a support group of people just like you, willing to change their lives on the long term"
the program contains 3 distinct components:
Education: Each week we will investigate a topic to uncomplicated weight loss. Topics will be based on the needs of the group, and all information will be the most up to date research. Topics may include: understanding macro nutrients and your needs, hormonal control of weight, menopause, food intolerance/leaky gut, elimination issues, detox, sleep quality, stress and cortisol, metabolism and balance, and more. With each issue, we will offer different effective holistic solutions.
Social Support: Our group will meet once weekly, and we will be your team. Are you struggling with something specific? Celebrating a success? We are here for you, in person at our sessions and via a private Healthy Weight Whats App group.
Weekly Assignments and activities to keep you engaged throughout the week.
