How to Manage a Healthy Weight this September
If you’ve been trying to lose weight but haven’t yet seen the results you’re hoping for, it could be that you’ve been taking the wrong approach. Losing weight takes more than simply cutting certain things out of your diet or making an effort to get more exercise; it requires a lifestyle change, with an understanding of the root causes of your weight problem and a holistic strategy to achieve noticeable results.
That’s where Signature Medicine can help. Our Medical Weight Loss program has helped countless people from Langhorne, PA and the surrounding areas to set goals and achieve results with weight-loss strategies that encompass psychological, dietary, and physical changes. As you strive to lose weight, here are a few things to keep in mind. We’re highlighting these three tips specifically because each one is related to a nationwide health initiative that takes place in September.
Keep an eye on your cholesterol.
September is National Cholesterol Education Month, which is promoted by the CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Fast food (particularly fried foods), processed meats, and sweets such as pastries and cookies are all high in cholesterol, which is a type of organic fat. The human body produces its own cholesterol, so getting an excessive amount from your diet can cause it to accumulate inside your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other health concerns. If you don’t know whether your cholesterol is at a healthy level, your doctor can perform a simple blood test to find out.
Get plenty of exercise, no matter your age.
September 25 is National Women’s Health & Fitness Day, although the importance of exercise applies to men just as much as it does to women. On the 25th, there will be hundreds of women’s health and fitness events all across the country, and you can find one to be a part of in your area. These events are expected to attract a total of more than 50,000 women, so this is your chance to get back to exercising if you’ve been letting your fitness goals slip lately.
Add whole grains to your diet.
