In a study on the results of the television show The Biggest Loser, 13 out of the 14 participants experienced rebound weight gain, while 4 of them gained a lot more weight than they had before they participated in the show. This goes to prove that albeit the initial weight loss is promising, the real work actually comes in long-term weight maintenance, and this is only achievable through effective weight management.

Here at Alpha Care Wellness Center, our board-certified and fellowship-trained integrative and functional medicine specialist and weight-management expert Dr. Catherine Oseni is profoundly invested in the long-term outcomes of our clients. Thus, instead of merely giving you a leg up on your weight-loss pursuit, she provides you with all the necessary tools and strategies you need to achieve sustainable results.

Here are a few weight-management tips from Dr. Catherine Oseni that will point you in the right direction— not only to keep those unwanted pounds off for good but also to achieve a healthy overall lifestyle change.

Tip#1 Make healthy food choices.

Simply avoiding certain foods or starving yourself to cut calories isn’t entirely sustainable. It often only makes you feel miserable and more likely to abandon the regimen. Instead of cutting out your favorite foods cold turkey or drastically reducing your caloric intake, try a different strategy, such as incorporating the right combination of foods consisting of all of the macro and micronutrients into your diet.

For instance, instead of choosing chips and soda for a snack, try homemade lemonade and nuts. Instead of having a big bowl of pasta and meat sauce, select quinoa and lean turkey. The goal is to fill your stomach with foods that are low-calorie but are filling and nutritious.

There is no need to starve yourself or go on feeling hungry. There are a variety of food choices that can help you successfully manage your weight without ever depriving yourself of the important nutrients your body needs to function optimally.

Tip#2 Choose activities you enjoy.

A lot of people correlate exercise with going to the gym. This doesn’t have to be the case. Try to find activities that will keep you on your feet but that you find enjoyable. This way, it won’t feel like exercise. For instance, go on a hike on your favorite trail or visit a museum that you’ve been wanting to go to. Another way to get moving is to make changes to your normal routine. Instead of driving to the local store, take a walk there. Instead of paying for a car wash, consider doing it yourself instead.

When it comes to finding things that you enjoy while getting your heart pumping and your body moving, you have choices aplenty.

Tip #3 Work closely with Dr. Catherine.

The importance of seeking the expertise of and working closely with Dr. Catherine Oseni cannot be overstated. Dr. Catherine can carry out a thorough assessment of your overall health and body composition to get an idea of what will work for you and what won’t as well as determine the factors that could impede your progress. She offers a medically supervised weight management program, which includes nutraceutical supplements, an individualized diet plan consisting of functional foods, progress monitoring, behavior and lifestyle changes, and a tailored exercise plan. Dr. Catherine will be your accountability partner, and by helping you establish a wholesome relationship with food and providing you with all the encouragement and support you need, she can put you on the path to long-term success.
