Need to Lose Weight? How a Nutrition Group Can Help

There is one thing that nobody wants to hear: you need to lose weight. As an epidemic that is taking over our country, obesity is a disease that is not only bad for your self-esteem, but it’s bad for virtually every part of your health as well. Affecting more than one-third of our population, obesity is something that impacts almost everyone. However, weight can be hard to manage— especially on your own. That’s why Dr. David A. Schlessinger has created a nutrition group to help you find a healthy balance in your life.

What Does It Mean to Be Healthy?

Health doesn’t just stem from having a slim waistline. In fact, someone who wears size zero jeans and has one percent body fat may be extremely unhealthy. Rather than equating a slim waistline to health, look at it this way: someone who is considered to be healthy abstains from smoking, avoids too much sun exposure, gets enough sleep, manages stress well, frequently exercises, and eats a healthy diet. To help you stay on that healthy track, our nutrition group delves into each of these aspects of healthy living to help you create a more balanced life.

Why Is Support So Important?

Dieting on your own can sometimes feel like you’re on a runaway train heading straight into a wall— or jar of cookies. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. By joining a community of people who are in your same position, you can find the right support you need to start on your journey toward healthier living. For instance, if you are having a bad day and accidentally eat more chips than you can count, a support group may offer you words of encouragement and help you get back on track for a more successful tomorrow.

Work With a Dietician

One of the best things you can do to combat obesity is to learn about what you’re putting into your body and why. With the help of a dietician, you may learn how to build a better relationship with food and gain an understanding of what types of food will give you the nourishment your body needs. By developing this new relationship with food, you can create goals that you can stick to and get results that will last.
