Throw the scale away

The scale does not lie, oh but it does.  It makes me so frustrated when I hear clients or even friends say that the have been watching what they eat and exercising and have not lost any weight.  So they are going to take some pill or do some diet that cost $400 or $500 a month.  The thing about your weight on the scale is it is irrelevant.  In my practice, I am weigh my clients once in awhile or not at all.  Your weight depends on many different things, it could be the time of the day, day of the week, time of year, hormones, water retention or medications.

Finding your balance in healthy living

One thing that most people do not understand about weight control is that you need to find a balance in life.  Taking care of yourself is part of your job.  If you do not feel good and have any energy, you are unable to perform your work or take care of others.  

Part of controlling your weight is physical activity.  The American Heart Association recommends for heart health 30 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity 5 times a week or 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity 3 times a week, along with 2 days of moderate to vigorous strength training per week.
