5 Ways a Weight Loss Coach Helps You Shed the Pounds

Let’s face it. Losing weight is tough. For some people, the pounds just never seem to shred. For others, the weight returns following an otherwise successful program. If you’ve put everything you have into losing weight and it’s still not working, you may be missing an important piece of the puzzle: a weight loss coach. Consider these ways a coach can assist you in your weight loss journey and help you shed the pounds.

Weight Loss Coaches Inspire and Support

One of the big challenges individuals face when trying to lose weight is lack of support. Sometimes, the support networks is not there at all or individuals feel like they’re being judged for changing their diet and exercise habits. Other times, friends and family think they’re being supportive by saying they don’t think you need to change. While this is a nice confidence booster, it can really cut into a person’s desire to make a healthy lifestyle change.

Weight loss coaches create an environment where you can be free to pursue your goals without judgement. They are there to educate, encourage, guide, and support you throughout your journey. An experienced weight loss coach knows how to help you recognize and overcome obstacles and will provide the tools needed to keep you on track.

At Premier Med Spa, we provide weekly one-on-one coaching so that you don’t ever have to feel like you’re alone in your weight loss journey. When you need someone to listen, our coaches are here to support you.

They Tailor a Plan to Fit Your Needs

Another struggle many people face when losing weight is going into it with a one-size-fits-all approach. Most weight loss programs aim to restrict calories and encourage exercise to a certain type or amount per day. These programs may factor in your gender, height, and weight, but there are many other pieces of a successful weight loss program to consider. A weight loss coach helps you fill those gaps by getting to know you on a personal level and taking an individualized approach. They put the human factor back into weight loss, providing the opportunity to connect on an emotional level. No do-it-yourself program or self-help book can help you get to the root of your personal weight loss struggles. A weight loss coach can.

As your weight loss coach gets to know you, they can help create a diet and exercise plan that takes your emotions and current lifestyle into consideration. They’re trained to help spot your motivators and help you use your strengths to your advantage. A weight loss coach can help you make the gradual progression toward lifestyle changes that you can sustain for the rest of your life, all while taking your current situation into account.

Our weight loss coaches at Premier Med Spa develop a customized diet plan unique to each of our clients. We focus on an HCG diet that is designed to help individuals lose weight quickly and keep it off. Combined with our one-on-one coaching, we are able to tailor the plan to your needs and lifestyle.

They Keep You Accountable

Excuses are one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to losing weight. You might tell yourself you’ll start trying to lose weight next week or after the holidays only to realize that you never followed through. Oftentimes, individuals start on a diet program only to fall back into their old habits almost as quickly.

These situations are common and are nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of viewing them as failures, take them as a learning experience. What you may notice lacking in these scenarios is accountability.

One of a weight loss coach’s jobs is to keep you motivated and accountable. For example, at Premier Med Spa, our weight loss program includes weekly weigh-ins to help you stay on track with your goals. But don’t worry. There’s no pressure; only support.

They Provide Extra Tools and Resources

Not only do weight loss coaches provide advice and support tailored to your needs, but working with a weight loss coach can allow you access to tools and resources you may not have otherwise. This can include educational materials, personalized advice, and more.

Our clients at Premier Med Spa receive weekly B12 lipotropicshots to help you lose weight and stay on track. Vitamin B12 helps the body form new cells, increases energy, and is proven to help detox the liver and decrease your waist line. This valuable weight loss tool is available alongside our weight loss coaching services.

They Produce Proven Results

A final struggle that many weight loss clients face is that it doesn’t seem to matter how hard they try, they still struggle to see results. If that’s how you feel about every program you’ve tried, consider this: Research shows that working with a professional weight loss coach can help you lose more weight and reduce cardiovascular risk factors like cholesterol levels.

In one study, researchers looked at the effectiveness of three different types of health coaches. The first group worked with professional weight loss coaches, the second with peer groups, and the third with a mentor who had previously lost weight. After six months, 56 percent of participants in the professional group lost 10 percent of their total body weight compared to 50 percent of participants in the peer group and 17 percent in the mentor group. Researchers concluded that adding a health coach to your weight loss plan may help in reducing obesity.

The benefit of working with a professional coach is that the results are made to last long-term. A coach can help you develop habits and acquire knowledge that will stick with you long after you shed the pounds. Weight loss coaches aren’t just there to help you lose the weight; they’re there to help you keep it off and achieve your healthy lifestyle goals.

If you’ve ever felt like something was missing in previous weight loss programs you’ve tried, perhaps it’s time to contact a weight loss coach. Give us a call or email us to learn more about our Premier Med Spa weight loss approach, including diet plan, weekly weigh-ins, one-on-one coaching, and B12 lipo slim shots.

Quick Tips to Beat Holiday Bloating!

The holidays are filled with memories, family, and of course lots of comfort food! These times are meant to be enjoyed but dealing with post holiday bloating can be quite uncomfortable. Now that the holiday season has started it seems harder than ever to stick to your normal clean eating routine but here are some quick tips from Fitness RX Women magazine on how to beat the holiday bloat:

food-salad-dinner-eating-1

1.) Reduce Carbohydrates:
When we take in too many carbs our bodies tend to hold on to water adding excess water weight to your body. If you are trying to shed this excess water weight simply reduce your carb intake by 20-30% of your diet for a week or so. This will allow your body to use the extra carbs and shed the water weight.

2.) Cleanse with Green Veggies:
Veggies! Don’t you love em?! Green vegetables like broccoli, kale, and asparagus are full of antioxidants and act like natural diuretics helping to cleanse your system. So when you go to make your post holiday smoothie, throw some veggies in for a nice refreshing detox, your body will thank you!
3.) Stimulate Your Metabolic Rate:
Add some heat to your holidays! Foods such as chili peppers and green tea are great metabolism boosters. Chili peppers contain capsaicin which has been shown to increase metabolic rates and crave appetites. In addition, green tea also increases your metabolism rate for a boost of energy full of antioxidants!

4.) Up The Intensity:
Even though the holiday season might leave you wanting to cuddle up and binge watch your favorite Netflix show, it is important to get back into your regular workout routine. It might feel a little sluggish at first but pick up on your cardio routine and aim for longer more intense sessions.
Utilize these great tips to help beat and holiday bloating and get back to your active self in no time! Also be sure to check out our November newsletter for some healthy alternatives to your favorite holiday meals. This month are highlighting Brussel Sprouts Made Right!

Retinol – Is it Worth All of the Hype?

Retinol- Is it worth all of the hype?

 

We have all heard the hype, and have all probably had someone recommend incorporating  retinol into our daily  skincare routines.  But is this so called fountain of youth serum really worth it? Do retinoids actually reverse, protect, and prevent wrinkles? Yes. Retinol is beyond worth the hype, but there’s a catch.  Most over the counter retinol does not come close to the prescription level dermatologists prescribe.  So, we have all these drugstore counters filled with retinol products, that don’t seem to really be doing the job! I have discussed with our skincare experts here, and have gotten all the info on why we should ignore those products, what products are perfect, and why you need retinol in your life.

 

  1. What is Retinol?

Retinol is the most natural form of Vitamin A.  There are other compounds of retinoids such as: retinoic acid (also known as tretinoin), retinyl palmitate, and retinaldehyde.  All of which are used in skincare products, whether it’s acne products or anti aging products.  It is a holy grail product used by dermatologists and estheticians alike.  Regular use of this stuff can promote, brighter, smoother, and healthier looking skin.

  1. What does retinol do for your skin?

Depending on the compound, retinol can be used to help diminish acne and acne scars.  It can also be used to help minimize the wrinkles, and smooth out skin.  The greatest thing about retinoids, is that helps speed up cell turnover.  Which virtually helps any skin issue!

  1. What’s the difference between Retin-A and Retinol?

So you have probably seen both on skincare labels, but what’s the actual difference? Well, it’s really the way they are formulated.  Retinol is a natural version of Vitamin A and is usually added with other ingredients in other products.  Retin-A is a synthetic form of retinol created by scientists from other ingredients in labs.  The difference on your skin is that Retin-A is much more potent than Retinol, so it depends on the level you need!

  1. What are other uses?  

Retinol works wonders on acne, especially with people who are sensitive to salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.  It also a perfect fix for hyperpigmentation, since it is great for cell turnover.

  1. Why you SHOULD add retinol into your skincare routine.

It’s never too early or too late to start using retinol! Most dermatologists recommend starting in your mid to late 20’s.  But retinol amazing effects can be seen at any age, and can reverse some serious sun and skin damage!

  1. What are the side effects?

The key with retinoids is to remember less is more! A pea size amount goes a long way.  Because it is a strong product, and can be drying those with overly sensitive skin or symptoms like eczema should use sparingly.  It will not irritate if used less often on those skin types; however, daily use could cause some irritation.

  1. Can you incorporate it gently?

A tip for adding retinol into your routine is to add it before all of your nightly creams and let it dry first.  Extra moisture can actually cause irritation with retinoid products

  1. Can you only wear it at night?

Retinoids are extremely potent, and can even be drying, so having them on during the day is typically not a good idea if you are using Retin-A.  A lot of daily and daytime moisturizers promote retinol as an active ingredient. The catch is there is barely any in these products.  Wearing heavy retinol during the day could cause easier buring from the sun! So try to stick to a night time routine, and always wash your face and wear sunscreen in the morning!

  1. Does retinol replace steps in your skincare routine?  

Because Retinoids promote cell turnover, many people think they can skip the exfoliation.  You still need to exfoliate because it helps to shed the dead skin cells so you can replenish your skin with moisture.  However, doing your exfoliation less often when using retinol is definitely acceptable!

  1. How long, until you see results?

With prescription Retin-A you can see results with skin texture and wrinkles in as little 6 weeks, and 10 weeks with over the counter retinol.  With acne you can see slight results in at least 24 hours, so it really works!

 

Some Products to use!

 

Revision

Retinol Complete

retinol complete bottle

Although this product uses retinol and not Retin-A it is specially formulated with botanical extracts to give you the strongest and most potent mixture of retinol without being too harsh. SO…that means you get all the effects of prescription grade Retin-A in an all natural formula!!
