It's hard to believe that Fall is here already, it was an atypical summer for most of us that's for certain, but what's also going around for certain is something that many deal with every year pandemic or not...the September scaries! The moment you get out of bed from Summer and realize that you had a lot of fun times with your family and friends...and a little too much food and beverage!
With the Holidays around the corner (frightening) it’s time to push into high gear and get our health and weight affairs in order! The CDC estimates that the average American gains 6lbs during the holiday season, so those who tend to gain during the summer months also are in an even more precarious position regarding healthy weight.
Weight loss and refocusing on health doesn’t have to be cause for panic, we certainly have enough to worry about these days! So, here are a few basic weight loss hacks our Medical Director at SeeBeyond™ Medicine, Dr. Lee is going to share! Let's make weight loss less daunting this September!
Tip #1: Double down on hydration!
The AMA (American Medical Association) recommends adults drinks 2-3L a day, "Better yet, make it a gallon, a gallon a day keeps the doctor away!" says Dr. Lee.
Healthy water intake is important because fat burning is inherently dehydrating. Adequate water intake helps flush out toxins that are stored in the fat cells you break down during weight loss while keeping you hydrated and healthy. "People drink way less water than they should, we aren't only talking hydration here, water is a way to get toxins out of your body. Simply put, our urine, stool and sweat all have high water content, we need a steady stream of fresh water to rid our body of waste and maintain healthy weight. Water is vital to life, keep it moving!"
Fat burning is also a metabolic process which is inherently dehydrating, ensuring proper water intake can help prevent plateaus.
Tip #2: Take a Supplement Tip from an Expert
My Weight was personally formulated by our Medical Director and Founder, Dr. Lee. After successfully treating thousands of patients suffering from obesity for over a decade she was able to crack the code. " My Weight was formulated to tackle multi-faceted barriers to weight loss such as uncontrolled appetite, slow metabolism, stress and poor sleep. My Weight feels like a mild dose of phentermine (a popular weight loss drug made by pharmaceutical companies) and is generally safe for everyone trying to lose weight who wants a boost!"

Tip #4: Intermittent Fasting
This trendy buzz word has so many meanings and parallel connotations that it can be hard to keep track of what intermittent fasting actually is. SeeBeyond™ Medicine structures out eat/fast windows for our patients in a 8/16 hour structure. Basically, we recommend you have an 8 hour eating window followed by a 16 hour fasting window. This type of dieting can reduce digestive stress and offer some structure to those who may benefit from these two things. Dr. Lee cautions us to only partake in intermittent fasting if it is sustainable within your general lifestyle,"Some develop compensatory behavior in which they eat more calories overall!" So make to pay attention
