    New Year’s Resolutions (again)?

    January 1st is rapidly approaching.  Not surprisingly, January is the time of year that most people decide to make a fresh start – to dig into their goals and dreams and try to make them happen.  The two most common goals are to improve health and weight.  Sadly, we know from studies that very few people hold on to those goals for more than a few weeks.  If you are visiting this site, chances are that you are starting to think about doing something positive for your health.  Rather than dabbling with an app or joining a neighbor in their new exciting weight-loss plan that they have found on Facebook, why not try something with a little science behind it?  

    Obesity is a disease.  Weight, like breathing,  is regulated by the central nervous system.  Trying to treat excess weight with willpower is like trying to change your oxygen saturation using willpower alone.  It simply doesn’t work.  You might be able to make a little bit of progress with a tremendous amount of effort, but chances are pretty good that your body will figure out what you are doing and do everything in its power to return back to normal.  

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  If starting a new diet on January first (again) is in your plans, think about how that has gone before.  Maybe it’s time to do something different.  Maybe it’s time to treat this disease using science and medicine rather than willpower and motivation. 

    Improve Your Health

    Obesity is a chronic, progressive, deadly disease.  Studies have repeatedly shown that losing even 5% of a person’s body weight dramatically improves their health.  It it more important than ever to focus on improving health.  However, treating obesity is difficult.  Patients deserve to be treated by a physician practicing solid, evidence-based medicine.  At Heartland Weight Loss, we are committed to providing effective, evidence-based therapies for patients affected by excess weight. Let us help you gain control over your health and weight – for good!

    The concept that it’s more expensive to eat healthy is false – unless you are comparing the cost of a private chef to the cost of a drive-through value meal!   Eating highly-processed foods and sugary drinks is actually much more expensive day-to-day than cooking healthy meals at home.  Furthermore, these foods eventually result in poor health – which means you end up spending additional money on medications and doctor visits that could have been prevented.   You work hard for your money.  You deserve the opportunity to spend that money on things that truly improve your life!  Think what you could do with that extra money once this pandemic is over – perhaps a long, luxurious beach vacation…

    Over 2/3 of Americans suffer from overweight and obesity. There’s no way that 2/3 of Americans are lazy and undisciplined when it comes to their weight and eating habits. When one hundred kids take a math test and over 2/3 of them fail the test, the problem isn’t the kids – it’s what they were taught prior to being given the test!  Of course you’ve been unsuccessful at losing weight before. When we approach weight loss with a simple calorie formula, most of us are going to fail. Obesity is much more complicated than the notion of calories in and calories out. The human body is not a simple math problem. Learn the science so that you can stop beating yourself up for being unable to control this problem.  There is hope – when you look in the right places!
