The holiday season is almost here which means turkey and dressing, eggnog, Santa’s cookies and so much more. The holidays always feel like the hardest time of the year to eat smaller, healthy portions and to maintain an exercise program. In fact, studies show the average American adult gains 1-2 pounds every year from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Because of this, Tyler Wellcare wants to share holiday diet tips for our Tyler, Texas patients to help them maintain their desired weight this season. If patients would like even more help during the holidays, or would like to jump-start their weight loss goals for 2017, Tyler Wellcare proudly offers HCG injections, a safe and effective medical weight loss program.
Holiday Diet Tips
To help survive the holiday season and countless parties, follow these simple holiday diet tips:
- Drink plenty of water and limit the amount of sugary and/or alcoholic beverages
- Watch all portions, from appetizers to the main course to dessert
- Eliminate all appetizers, if possible
- Downsize plate size when eating in a buffet-style setting
- Pick just one dessert
- Plan time to exercise, even if just a 10-15 minute brisk walk two times each day
- Be realistic by trying to just maintain weight
- Don’t beat yourself up if you splurge, it is the holiday season
- Get back on track immediately if you do go overboard
Jump-Start Weight Loss Goals with HCG Injections
While many people just try to maintain their current weight through the holiday season, certain individuals may want to jump-start their 2017 weight loss goals, or even lose a few pounds before and/or during the holidays. If this is the case, Tyler Wellcare can help with the use of HCG injections.
HCG injections are part of a safe and effective medical weight loss program administered by Dr. Janine Islam. The HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet utilizes a low-calorie diet, plenty of water and an HCG injection schedule. With a combination of these three items, the body becomes more reliant on its stored fat, leading to weight loss in many patients. The HCG injections make the lower-calorie diet quite comfortable in the majority of cases.
It is important to note all patients interested in HCG injections must undergo a thorough physical examination and basic blood panel to determine if they are an ideal candidate for the medical weight loss program.
