Don’t let yourself become a part of these statistics. While exercise and eating a healthy balanced diet are key factors to losing weight and beating long-term health problems that are linked to obesity, there is often something missing for people who really want get to where they need to go to make their healthy weight loss sustaining. Often people try EXERCISE HARDER or DIET MORE. This usually leads people feeling too fatigued to carry out with their exercise plan, and or giving up because the diet didn’t give them the proper nourishment they needed. This in turn makes people give up and adopt old habits, which leads them further from their weight loss goals.
Many reasons why people want to work with an Acupuncturist for furthering their weight loss goals:
-You may find that you are exercising and eating all the right foods, yet you are not getting the results that you want.
You want to have an eating plan that is specific to you and your body that targets a healthy weight loss that also gives you energy.
