One month down, eleven more to go.  How are the resolutions panning out?  Still encouraged on your weight loss journey?  Without question, every year, the most popular New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. So here’s a few tips I found to help you achieve your goal:


The nose knows when it comes to this tip – Enjoy the smell of vanilla. It tricks your brain into thinking your appetite is already satisfied, report British researchers. And that can lead to losing four-and-a-half pounds in four weeks – without dieting.


If you’re trying to lose weight, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. 78 percent of people who’ve lost 30 pounds or more and have kept it off eat breakfast every morning.


Want to lose weight? Walk backwards. Normal walking can help you maintain a healthy weight but walking backwards makes you lose even more fat. According to the University of East London, people walking backwards burned 40 percent more calories than those walking facing front.


Organization is the key to this weight loss tip – Organize your kitchen and you’ll start shedding pounds. A study published in Environment & Behavior, suggests that a disorganized kitchen can add to stress levels and lead to unhealthy, high-calorie food choices.

While there is no shortage of tips & tricks, when it comes to getting serious about weight control, consistency and accountability are huge!  That’s why I point people to Dr Lodge and Cool Springs MD every day on my radio show.

Everything begins at your initial visit, which is designed to collaboratively outline your needs and goals and begin developing the foundation of your custom weight management plan. At your initial visit, they will review your complete medical history, current medications, perform an EKG, a physical exam, measure your resting metabolic rate, and obtain lab work if not already done. All of this is aimed at helping the Cool Springs MD consultants match you with the best program for success in meeting your goals.

If you are serious about weight loss, then I seriously encourage you to go when I’ve found my success.  Doctor Lodge and his team at Cool Springs MD.
