Las Vegas, NV, February 16, 2011 -- 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.
Beyond “weight loss,” the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) is dedicated to offering physicians and their patients enduring weight management strategies. So once a patient has reached their goal weight, use these 13 NEW tips to help them maintain your their new weight:
1. Plan for a morning and afternoon snack. An apple travels well, other ideas include the proper portion of nuts (i.e. almonds), protein bars, protein shakes.
2. When making pasta, reduce the pasta and load up on meat and vegetables (tomatoes, onion, carrots, red peppers, zucchini, etc.).
3. Replace fruit juice with a homemade smoothie made from fruit (frozen or fresh). Here’s a quick recipe: 1/2c blueberries, 1 banana, 1 Tbsp peanut butter and/or 1 scoop of whey powder, 2 Tbsp quick cook oats, 1 1/2 cup skim milk.
4. Drink from tall, thin glasses, you'll think you are drinking more than you really are (especially of you are drinking fruit juices).
5. Replace fried food with baked. For the breading, use Panko (Japanese style bread crumbs), egg whites, and a small amount of skim milk as a batter.
6. Focus on not eating bad fats, but don't skip the good ones: fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines), fatty fruits (avocados), extra-virgin olive oil, eggs and healthy-fat snacks (nuts). Again , watch your portion control.
7. If you need to trim a few pounds off in a week, focus on eating lean, healthy white meat and fish (i.e. boneless, skinless chicken, basa, tilapia), and lots of filling vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, red peppers, celery). Try starting with a soup; use Campbell’s low sodium chicken broth as a soup base, and add chopped up vegetables.
8. Milk, Greek style yogurt, cottage cheese, and cheeses all contain slow-to-digest protein and healthy fat.
9. Remove sugar-sweetened and diet carbonated beverages from your diet. There is no nutritional value in these drinks. Instead, choose: unsweetened iced tea, iced coffee, and water (both flat and sparkling).
10. Cut down on your wine consumption, instead of having a glass of wine with every meal, choose a nice bottle of sparkling water (San Pellegino, Panna)
11. If you are still having a challenge, keep a food journal for 2 weeks. It doesn't need to be paper-based, it can be also be an electronic app like iLoseIt or web based. You will be surprised on how much food you are really eating. Also, most people underestimate the calories of the food they eat when eating out.
12. Walk more! People who walk more lower their resting heart rates, BMIs, and waist measurements. Next time you are at the mall, chose the parking space furthest from the door, take the stairs whenever possible, and find some friends in the neighborhood to go on a daily walk.
13. Add resistance training. This doesn't mean pumping iron, you can start with some exercise bands. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn!
