“I like to advise people to create a long term view for effective weight loss. There are 3 P’s that are important to understand for weight loss. P1 (Psychology): You must have a specific, measureable, attainable, and time bound weight loss goal and you MUST have a clear and powerful “WHY” that will drive you. This starts in your mind. P2 (Physiology): Begin by eating 500 less calories/day, walking 10,000 steps/day, sleeping 8 eight hours/night, and taking a multi-vitamin. P3 (Physical): Once you have your mind right and your calories under control, now begin an exercise plan to “get fit”. Be patient. Be persistent. Be clear and be realistic. It is going to take time to lose weight and get healthy. You didnt gain the weight overnight and you will not lose it overnight. Living healthy and fit is a mindset and ultimately your choice. You get to choose what you eat and how much you move. Make the healthy choice. Good luck!” – Dr. Mike Clark, DPT
Remember, to lose weight and stay with it, your strategy must comprise of both exercise and healthy eating. Happy Friday, everyone!
