Chiropractor Recommends Dietary Changes for Losing Weight
Dr. Ellison knows that the only way to lose weight and keep it off is to change the way you live your daily life. Permanent weight changes require permanent lifestyle changes. Many of them are easy to do, and you can even begin before seeing us in the Meridian office.
Drink at least eight full glasses of water every day. Water gives you many health benefits, including making you feel fuller after eating a meal. Water also helps with digestion, and can help prevent intestinal problems.
Try to incorporate fruit or vegetables at every meal. Have a couple of servings of fruit for breakfast, a fruit and a veggie for lunch and two vegetables with your dinner. They are rich in vitamins and nutrients, which is good not only for your health, but also your skin, hair and nails.
Turn empty calories into healthy snacks. Dip vegetables into salsa or hummus instead of creamy dressings which tend to be high in calorie and fat content. Have apple slices with peanut butter when you feel like something sweet.
These are just a few tips to get you started on a healthier path. If you're in Eagle or the surrounding area, we can help you on your weight loss journey and provide more information regarding what's best for your dietary health.
