How Can Dr. Catherine Oseni Help You Get Back to a Healthy Weight Post-Quarantine?

Most people haven’t left home very often ever since the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) pandemic started infiltrating our lives in mid-March. Consequently, most of us haven’t been able to go to the gym or participate in our usual fitness activities. This lack of physical activity combined with boredom-caused snacking has contributed to significant weight gain for many of us.

So you might be asking yourself, “How can I get back to my healthy weight once this pandemic is under control?” Fortunately, you can!

Let’s discuss how integrative pharmacist Dr. Catherine Oseni can help you get back to a healthy weight post-quarantine without feeling like you’re missing out on the flavors and foods you enjoy.

How to Lose Weight in a Healthy Way

Losing weight involves both your body and your mind. In order to achieve the weight-loss results you want, it is best to follow a prescribed weight management program as recommended by a medical professional. 

Here at Alpha Care Wellness Center, Dr. Catherine Oseni will analyze your eating habits and your medical history. She can then design and plan diet and exercise recommendations that are suitable for you and your lifestyle and preferences.

She will also help you in identifying your goals and in keeping you on track while you lose weight slowly and steadily, incorporating these basic factors into your lifestyle:

1. Goal-Setting

Before starting any weight management program, you must first determine what your goals are. Ask yourself the question, “What do I want to accomplish?”

Knowing your goals can help you and your doctor in developing a healthy lifestyle that is suitable to your needs and your body.

2. Following a Proper Diet Plan

Losing weight relies heavily on the quality of food you eat. With the help of a nutritionist who can be your diet coach, you can determine which foods are healthy for you in your quest for a healthier body.

Reducing your fat intake and increasing your protein intake is a common technique to lose weight, as this can help to boost your metabolism. Your diet coach will explain how to do this by maximizing nutrient dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts, and seeds.

3. Maintaining Healthy Lifestyle Habits

As your diet coach, Dr. Oseni can also recommend lifestyle habits aimed at helping you lose weight in a healthy way, including:

  • Following Exercise Recommendations. Exercising for at least 25 minutes a day helps in shedding weight while also keeping your body healthy. Recommendations will be based on your own body’s specific needs.
  • Managing Stress Levels. Stress can significantly contribute to weight gain. Stress hormones can send signals to our brain, causing us to eat more.
  • Getting Enough Rest. Getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night is vital in managing your cortisol levels, which have a direct impact on your body’s metabolism.

Dr. Oseni will also be your personal accountability health partner. This is generally a more effective way to lose weight than to join weight-loss groups or even just to have weekly weigh-ins, because having a weight-loss accountability partner provides an individualized relationship and a much greater level of motivation to succeed
