Do you feel like you’ve tried all the fad diets but can’t seem to lose more than a pound or two? Are you exercising, drinking water, and getting adequate rest, but still can’t lose weight? What you’re eating could be to blame. You may be eating too much, or too little, or eating the wrong foods.
At Dr. Rogers Centers in San Antonio, Texas, many of our clients are finally losing weight after years of trying. Our weight-loss specialists offer a comprehensive list of services like metabolic testing, nutritional supplements, and fat-burning injections. We also have certified nutritionists who help our clients develop dietary meal plans they can stick to as they work to reach their weight-loss goals. Here’s how a meal plan can help you lose weight once and for all.
What is a dietary meal plan?
To meet your weight-loss goals, you need a plan. A dietary meal plan lays out how many calories you should eat each day to lose weight. The best way to figure this out is with metabolic testing. Through a simple test in our office, we can tell you how many calories your body needs to function, and how many calories you should eat if you want to lose weight.
A dietary meal plan will also help you make healthier food choices so you set yourself up for success. We won’t force you to eat things you don’t like or tell you to eat cabbage soup for a week straight. We’ll work with you to figure out the best plan for you. Remember, healthy eating is the most important step in weight loss. When combined with exercise, you have a better chance of finally meeting your weight-loss goals.
What can I eat on a dietary meal plan?
What you can eat depends on your preferences and if you have any food allergies or sensitivities. We also take your overall health into account. For example, people with health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome, or celiac disease, have to avoid certain foods.
In general, our dietary health plans are focused on whole, nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, lean protein from meat and fish, eggs, nuts, and olive oil. We also provide guidance on proper portion sizes so you can learn what they look like and always be in control.
What foods should I avoid?
Every situation is different, but we do ask our weight-loss clients to cut back on saturated fats and sugar from candy, baked goods, sweetened drinks, and sodas. Processed foods found in a package or box are not recommended because they usually contain preservatives and high amounts of salt or sugar. Once you start reading food labels you’ll be amazed by what you see. Your trips to the grocery store will never be the same!
