Setting Healthy Weight Loss Expectations

When it comes to weight loss, it can be a difficult if you’re setting goals that you never seem to meet. It can be overwhelming to constantly be trying new diets and never getting the lasting results that you’re looking for. Dr. Jeremy McConnell at Discover Health in West Bradenton, FL, can help you set healthy and realistic weight loss goals and give you the tools that you need to achieve them all.

Creating Healthy Weight Loss Goals

When it comes to weight loss, it can be a long and frustrating journey sometimes. It’s important to know that it doesn’t have to be something you do alone. Your doctor in West Bradenton, FL, is able to help you create healthy weight loss goals that you can successfully achieve. Once you achieve your goals, you should notice that other problems tend to go away and you’ll start feeling better overall.

It's also important to remember that weight loss is a journey and isn’t just a quick and easy process. Weight loss takes time and effort and is a full-on commitment. Your doctor can help you make sure that you’re ready to make the changes that you need in your life to lose weight and start feeling healthy and ready for all your favorite activities.

Instead of setting one big goal, it’s helpful to set multiple small goals at a time. It’s usually helpful to aim for 1 to 2 pounds a week. This can be done by reducing your calories or increasing your exercise to burn more calories than you consume in a day. You can also set goals that aren’t necessarily related to weight. It could be to walk for 30 minutes a day or to exercise at least 5 times a week.

Weight loss isn’t just about exercise. You should also be changing your diet to be more inclusive of healthier foods and have more options in your diet. You can lower your caloric intake by including more fruits and vegetables in your meals.
