How a Dietary Meal Plan Can Help You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

If you have decided you want to lose weight and are having trouble getting started or have lost a few pounds only to regain, it is time to try a new approach. 

Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, a board-certified physician in obesity medicine and a physician nutrition specialist, is prepared to help you on your weight loss journey. Often serving as a guest expert on the topic of weight loss for major television networks, she provides a holistic approach to help you take off the excess weight. 

A sensible dietary meal plan involves your preferences

One of the first orders of business is establishing a dietary meal plan you can live with. You may have tried numerous meal plans already but haven’t had success. It’s important to recognize, though, that electing meal plans from a magazine doesn’t guarantee that they’re scientifically based or will actually help you shed the pounds. 

Dr. Youdim consults with you about your food preferences and incorporates many of your healthy food choices into the plan. She may recommend meal replacements along with eating healthy foods in moderate proportions. She will provide guidance on using meal replacements and her high quality Organic and non-GMO protein powder if that fits your lifestyle.  She will help you with meal plans and recipes to incorporate into your diet plan.

Mindful eating: Part of a holistic approach to weight loss

Do you tend to eat mindlessly when you’re worried or anxious? It takes 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full once you’ve started eating. If you consume a large amount of food quickly, you won’t feel full even though you’ve consumed enough. 

Dr. Youdim provides you with information on mindful eating, a technique that can help develop new habits in relation to food and help prevent excessive portion size and binge eating. Practicing mindful eating involves the following strategies:  

Posting your meal plan is a good idea. Having a visual cue can help keep you on track. It reminds you of your commitment to yourself to eat healthy foods and the goal to which you’re working. 

Assistance in starting a cycle of success

To help you on the road to success, Dr. Youdim may include an FDA-approved weight-loss medication that helps suppress cravings and moderates your appetite so you don’t overeat. 

Medication can be a very helpful tool for weight loss. Once you begin to experience success in losing weight, it’s much easier to stick to a healthy meal plan and to begin to develop a healthier relationship with food.  Eating healthy food will become a habit when you commit to giving your body the nutrients it needs, and once you begin to see results- better mood, greater energy and weight loss are all positive results of a healthy diet.
