To help physicians meet the needs of motivated patients, the IAPAM offers the industry's leading hCG for Weight Loss Training program (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training). Attendees at the IAPAM's hCG Training learn from expert physicians, pharmacists and other specialists in the field of hCG and medical weight management, and are given all the tools, resources and instruction needed to profitably add hCG for Weight Loss to their practices right away.
The IAPAM is dedicated to offering physicians and their patients enduring weight management strategies, so once a patient has reached their goal weight, use these tips to help them maintain their new weight:
- Don’t eat family style, you’re much more likely to eat more than you would if you placed the correct portion size on a plate.
- Healthy restaurant menus may not be so healthy. You’re likely to underestimate a meal’s calorie total by more than a third, according to a study in the Journal of Consumer Research.
- Alcohol makes you hungry (limit it to one or two glasses per meal)
- Restaurant portions are way too big, your choices are: (1) eat an appetizer, or (2) split an entre (either with another diner, or bring the other half home for another meal).
- Beware of office goodies. The office can be a source of 10-20lbs of fat per year. Skip the cakes, donuts, candies, and chocolates.
- Portion out your snacks. If you are going to have chips, read the bag and fill a bowl with a serving, then put the big bag away so you can’t see it.
- Hungry an hour after a meal? Have a glass of water, or go for a brisk walk.
- Display fruits, not sweets. Get rid of the glass covered sweets display, and replace it with a fruit bowl.
- Researchers discovered that people who watched TV while they ate consumed nearly 300 more calories than those who dined without an eye on the tube.
- Slow down while you eat. If you consciously stop to take a breath between bites, you can cut your food (and calorie) intake by 10 percent, according to researchers at the University of Rhode Island. It takes 20 minutes for the news that you’ve had enough to eat to travel from your gut to your brain. Another tip, try talking more between bites.
The IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Training offers physicians a full-day of intensive education on the clinical best practices of hCG for weight loss, lipotropic injections and Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) programs. Physicians and their staff will learn the exclusive IAPAM hCG for Weight Loss Protocol (based on Dr. Simeons manuscript, Pounds and Inches.) The IAPAM's program gives physicians "everything they need to start offering medical weight loss programs to their patients immediately upon returning to their practices," emphasizes Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, and one of the IAPAM faculty instructors presenting at the IAPAM's hCG training. Also, the IAPAM's full day hCG training is the only hCG medical weight loss training in North America approved for a special medical malpractice coverage for those who have attended and have been certified by the IAPAM.
