What should I focus on if I want to lose weight?
If you want to lose weight, you need to focus on losing fat while maintaining muscle. Both diet and exercise are essential to removing fat, but many people go overboard with restrictive eating and overexercising, which sabotage their efforts.
Instead, the Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine focuses on a diet and exercise approach to maintain muscle mass and reset your metabolism. The Sklar Center Team goes more in depth in your sessions, but she uses these fundamental guidelines:
Eat fat to lose fat
You might associate dietary fat with unwanted body fat, but dietary fat can help you lose more body fat. Healthy fat helps keep you full after meals, and it helps to maintain blood sugar at healthy levels. To lose weight, aim to get the majority of your daily calories from healthy fats such as nuts, avocados, coconut oil and olive oil while lowering your refined carbohydrate intake. The Sklar Center HCG Fat Loss Plan the Sklar Keto Plan can help with a diet for weight loss and overall health.
Lose fat but keep muscle
Many people who lose weight lose muscle mass in the process, which slows the body’s metabolism and deters their efforts. For sustainable weight loss, you should focus on preserving your muscle mass, because it burns more calories over the course of a day. Proper exercise and sufficient protein intake help prevent muscle deterioration.
Take your time
Short-term fad diets cause many people to gain back any weight they lost when they’re done with the program because those diets are short-term solutions. For sustainable weight loss, you need to learn how to eat in a whole new way for the long term. Recalibrating your way of life takes time, so your weight loss will too.
What are the benefits of a ketogenic diet?
Even if weight loss is not your only goal, a ketogenic diet can improve the following:
- Improved memory and cognition
- Reduced autoimmune symptoms
- Achieve healthy cholesterol levels
- Reduced cardiovascular disease
- Reduced cancer risk
The benefits of weight loss extend beyond this list, but these major improvements are invaluable for your health and longevity. If you’re ready to lose weight for good this time, contact the Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine about our HCG Metabolic Fat Loss Program and our ketogenic diet plans.
How does the metabolic reset work?
Combining a specially tailored diet with human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) supplements helps reset your metabolism and encourages fat loss. You can also get into fat burning metabolism with the Sklar Keto Plan.
The medically supervised programs are tailored to your body. Everyone has a different body chemistry, so what works for one person may not work for you. At the Sklar Center we consider your bio-individuality when we design your weight loss plan.
