10 Health Tips from CHC Medical Weight Loss

Maintain a Healthy Weight - Excess weight, especially around the abdomen, increases your risk of health problems. Maintain a healthy weight and you will look and feel better, and have more energy.

Drink Enough Water - Good hydration is the foundation of good health. The body is, on average, 60% water, and every system in your body depends on water. Stay hydrated.

Eat More Leafy Greens - Leafy greens are the foods most missing in modern diets. They are nutrient dense and are one of the richest sources of vitamins and fiber.

Include Quality Protein Daily - Protein provides the structural core of the body. It helps stabilize blood sugar, promotes cell growth and repair, assists in hormone production, cell metabolism, fluid balance, and immune system maintenance.

Eat Whole Grains Instead of Processed Foods - Whole grains such as brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and oats are an excellent source of nutrition. Because the body absorbs slowly, they provide sustained and high-quality energy.

Use Healthy Oils - Olive oil has the highest percentage of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat of any edible oil, and contains a high level of anti-oxidants. Other examples of healthy oils are coconut, walnut, and flax seed oil, as well as raw nuts and seeds, avocado, olives, and organic butter.

Move Your Body - Movement aids many of our body's natural functions, such as digestion and circulation and can boost the immune system, strengthen muscles and improve heart and lung function.

Manage Your Stress - Negative stress impacts our health in many ways, including weakening the body's overall immunity. Find ways to calm an overactive mind and body that work for you and your lifestyle.

Eat Mindfully - Instead of eating mindlessly while working on the computer, watching TV, or when on the run, slow down and chew well. Notice when you have had enough, rather than waiting until you are too full.

Keep a Positive Attitude - Thoughts and feelings have very powerful biochemical reactions within the body. Positivity can lead to good emotional health and negativity can have adverse effects.
