People want to lose the weight but unless they see results fairly quickly, good intentions can fall by the wayside
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
Although weight loss is the number one New Year’s resolution, it also has the highest failure rate. This year, San Francisco Weight Loss Clinic, GreenLite Medicine’s team of health care experts wants everyone to succeed at meeting and maintaining weight loss goals. At its three Bay Area weight-loss clinics, GreenLite helps clients succeed with their weight-loss diets based on the principles of learn-lose-live.
"People want to lose the weight but unless they see results fairly quickly, good intentions can fall by the wayside," said Dr. Rugh, CEO of Greenlite Medicine. "Learning to lose can happen quickly with key changes in behavior and the weight loss that results helps reinforce that behavior. But with support and guidance, these habits can evolve into a lifestyle change."
So what are the components of success and strategies proven to produce lasting lifestyle change? Researchers evaluated 74 studies published between January 1997 and May 2007 seeking answers to this question. The top two strategies were found to be goal setting, and follow up or continued accountability. Goal setting is a system where small, attainable and specific measurable goals are set, such as losing a pound a week, instead of saying "lose weight." There should also be a plan for the duration of follow ups to reinforce goals and monitor progress. The GreenLite Method of learn-lose-live incorporates these proven methods to ensure optimum success for its clients.
Merissa Candelaria said, “Everyone at GreenLite reminds me of how awesome I am for getting to where I am today, and that is a great feeling. I know that this lifestyle change is something that I needed, and I cannot express my gratitude to GreenLite for their help in this journey. Their program is something that really works and has given me a new look on life.”
GreenLite Medicine personalizes its weight-loss program for each individual, ensuring that goal setting and follow up is achievable and sustainable.
"Each person's weight-loss goal, their challenges, motivators, metabolic status, and pathway to achieve their goal, is unique. We want to set up our clients for success," Dr. Rugh said. "Weekly visits provide the opportunity to learn and redirect one's maladaptive habits towards behaviors that align with both short-term weight loss and long-term lifestyle change. The results speak for themselves. People not only report a renewed sense of energy, but an opening of possibilities not seen before, fueling the evolution towards a new lifestyle.”
