The Healthy Weight Lifestyle Formula
By: Katrina Davis, M.D. and Marja Sprock, M.D.

Weight management is a major issue. More than 2/3 of adults in the US are trying to either lose or maintain their weight. Hectic lifestyles, processed foods, large portions and decreased physical activity work against us. We try to manage our weight due to body image and self-esteem, but also for health benefits. The more we weigh, the more likely we are to be sick and not live as long. As our weight goes up, our life span goes down. Diabetes, high blood pressure, joint issues, and heart disease are all more common when we have an unhealthy weight.

The ultimate goal is to burn more calories than you take in. To do this, we need at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week. Whether it is running, walking, swimming, dancing or riding a bike, our bodies need to move to burn calories. Today there are so many options to help us get moving. You can join a gym; get a personal trainer; use workout videos at home; or even stream workout guidance through your lap top or phone. You can track your activity on paper; on your smart phone; or fitness gadgets that you can wear on your wrist. Use the tools available to you help you reach a healthy activity level.

More than 2/3 of adults in the US are trying to either lose or maintain their weight.  

Hectic lifestyles, processed foods, large portions and decreased physical activity work against us.

We also need to watch food intake to help us control our body weight. Regardless if the chosen eating lifestyle is balanced low-calorie; low-fat low calorie; moderate-fat low calorie; low-carbohydrate; or Mediterranean, each will likely work if followed. The concepts are similar in the end and different things work best for different people. At Central Florida UroGynecology, Dr. Davis has been working with patients to help them understand the daily portion of different food groups which will either lead to weight loss or maintaining your weight. Sometimes all we need to learn is how to eat healthy in the right portions and the right combinations of types of food to reach our fitness goals. Eating a balanced diet that includes appropriate amounts of the various nutrients helps to curb cravings. Limiting the amount of gluten and not using artificial sugars will also diminish your desire to eat all the time and in larger volumes. Remember the main thing will be healthy food choices and portion control.

Last but not least, it is important to lose weight at a safe pace. The Center for Disease Control recommends that weight loss should be at a rate of 1-2 pounds per week to avoid muscle loss. Weight loss at this rate is also more likely to be true weight and not water weight that you regain quickly. Beware of fad diets and eating programs that cause rapid weight loss as this can be harmful to your health and usually is not sustainable.

  • Try Dr. Davis’ food portion control instruction and guidance
  • At least 150 minutes each week of moderate-intensity physical activity is a critical component of weight loss and maintenance
  • You did not gain all your weight in one month, it will not all come off in one month
  • Slow and steady wins the race

Weight management requires work on your part. There will be no reward if you do not start taking control of your weight and eating habits today. Remember, you were only given one body and you better take care of it as best you can. There are ways that we can assist you. Dr. Davis has developed an entire weight support program. Call our clinic today to see how we can help you on your journey.

See Dr. Davis and get started on living healthy and feeling better.
