“I was tired of who I was…lazy…no motivation. I wanted to make a big change. Strong. Healthy. Capable. What I liked best was the support in learning how to eat. The diet program is great, but if I didn’t have a way of learning how to eat, I’d be back to square one. I feel fantastic, stronger, healthier, and always in the mood to check off things on my ‘to do’ list. It was a hell of a lot easier than I thought it would be, but I had to really want to change or it would have all gone to waste.”

-Mitch Graham – Lost 44 pounds and 32 inches! (Individual results can and do vary.)

“I decided to join PWLC when I knew something had to be done and PWLC had worked for a family member. I liked that the plan involved grocery store foods. I also liked the courtesy and positive assistance of staff counselors. Now, I feel great! My knees do not hurt and I don’t run out of breath on the stairs!”

-Lynna Gene Cook – Lost 50 pounds and 59.75 inches! (Individual results can and do vary.)

“I joined PWLC because I wanted to look and feel better physically and emotionally about myself. I want to be healthy and strong for my family for years to come. I really liked the one-on-one support, all the services offered, and especially that you can lose the weight fairly quickly, but in a monitored, healthy way. It helps keep me motivated. I feel more energetic, stronger, more presentable, and more confident. I feel a sense of accomplishment over doing something so difficult. Weight loss is always a challenge, but in the long run I know it’s worth it in so many ways!”

12 Things You Should Know Before Starting Weight Watchers

It may seem as if Weight Watchers has had a couple identity crises — first it was the moms-only diet, now it’s the one Oprah swears by — but the program’s successfully helped dieters hit their goal weights for more than 50 years. Here’s everything you should know before joining.

Weight Watcher’s founder started the program after someone thought she was pregnant.

When 37-year-old Jean Nidetch, a housewife in Queens, ran into a neighbor who thought she was pregnant, she decided to do something about her appearance. Nidetch asked the New York Board of Health for advice, and cut out soda and added more protein to her diet. She lost 20 pounds in 10 weeks and eventually went on to lose 50 more.

The first official meetings began in 1963 and were held over a pizza parlor.

It was a special kind of torture for women looking to lose weight, but Nidetch found an empty space over a pizzeria and scooped it up.

The program’s old magazine covers will make you cringe.

Anyone can subscribe to the Weight Watchers magazine, which has tons of recipes and tips. It launched in 1968, and in 1975, editors added a tagline under the title: Magazine For Attractive People. Face palm. It was removed in 1980.

The diet plan used to be a total head-scratcher.

Original pamphlets called for participants to load up on liver, brains, kidneys, white meat turkey, and chicken. The worst part: It excluded everyone’s favorite healthy fat — avocado.

Weight Watchers adopted its Points system in 1997, causing its popularity to skyrocket.

Instead of saying certain foods were off-limits (you could eat bread!), the creators assigned them each a value based on calorie count. Every person was allotted a certain number of points for the day, which you could hit however you wanted.

The Points have gone through many changes.

Weight Watchers introduced PointsPlus in 2010, and the system went from judging foods solely on calories to factoring in fat, carbs, fiber, and protein. In 2015, they upended things again, causing yet another backlash from loyal members who were sick of the program changing. That most recent change, called SmartPoints, is still being used. It’s a return to a more calorie-based point allotment, but the points can be lowered for high-protein foods and raised for sugary foods or ones filled with saturated fat.

That time Miranda ate cake out of the garbage on Sex and the City actually happened.

Nidetch met with friends to stay motivated. Much like at current Weight Watchers meetings, the groups would exchange stories about their achievements or temptations. One woman confessed to eating a donut out of a trash can.

Diet Doc Reviews The Boiled Egg Diet: Can it Really Help You Lose Weight?

RALEIGH, NC–(Marketwired – May 10, 2017) – The Boiled Egg Diet claims rapid weight loss results of up to 24 pounds in just two weeks. Any version of the egg diet is very low calorie, is ketogenic and is high in protein. Carbohydrate consumption (including servings of fruit) is severely limited. Typically, the dieter will consume anywhere between 4-6 eggs per day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A small salad, or another small serving of lean protein usually accompanies each meal.

Essentially, there are a few benefits to egg diets. High-protein diets tend to cause a reduction in appetite (at least in the beginning). This helps one to feel fuller longer and eat fewer calories overall, which normally leads to some weight loss. High protein diets also aid in enhanced protein synthesis, which increases the rate of caloric burn and naturally raises the body’s metabolism. Eating eggs for breakfast has also been shown to increase weight loss due the fact that a high-protein breakfast helps one to feel satiated, and less prone to high-calorie snacking and drink consumption throughout the day.

However, there are also downsides to such a restrictive diet. Low-calorie diets cannot be sustained long-term due to their negative impacts on nutrition and energy. Exercise, which is necessary for optimal physical and mental health, is discouraged while on egg diets due to their low-calorie and low-carbohydrate count. Fatigue, irritability and mood swings are common with diets such as these, as is the tendency to binge eat. Overall, eggs are a great addition to any diet, but a comprehensive and healthy approach to nutrition is going to be the surest and safest way to achieve weight loss in both the short and long-term. Diet Doc, an industry leader in weight loss across the U.S., advises that individuals who need to lose weight seek out certified nutritionists and doctors for personalized strategies, rather than one-size-fits-all fad diets. Diet Doc’s team assesses all patients via a health assessment profile and customizes each weight loss plan to ensure that patients are on the best possible track for success.

Patients can get started immediately, with materials shipped directly to their home or office. They can also maintain weight loss in the long-term through weekly consultations, customized diet plans, motivational coaches and a powerful prescription program. With Diet Doc, the doctor is only a short phone call away and a fully dedicated team of qualified professionals is available 6 days per week to answer questions, address concerns and support patients.

Getting started with Diet Doc is very simple and affordable. New patients can easily visit https://www.dietdoc.com to quickly complete a health questionnaire and schedule an immediate, free online consultation.

They’re Back (silver maple seeds article)

I am sure it must be a record. I am just positive that there were more silver maple seeds produced this year than ever before. There are four huge silver maples in our immediate neighborhood. The biggest of them all is in our front yard. All of them let loose of their “helicopters” on different days.

The tree across the street to the north dropped most of its seeds when there was a 40 mph wind from the north and many of those seeds whirled over to our yard. The tree to the south dropped its load on a day when there were 50 mph winds from which direction? The south, of course. Our maple waited till there was a day with no wind so they could spin straight down to our lawn and gutters.

Now my wife Joyce, who is much smarter and more sensible than me, said that every year I say the same thing about this being “the most maple seeds ever.” She is probably right. I am a tree lover. I even have framed certificates saying so. However, I really do not like this tree very much. Besides the masses of samaras (the real name for the helicopters), this tree has shed several big branches in ice and wind storms, and has shallow roots that are starting to cause various problems.

Since I am a naturalist, I must look for the positive aspects of silver maples. Back in the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s they were planted in huge numbers in Kansas cities. They were one of the fastest growing shade trees and when healthy and properly pruned they are an attractive tree.

The large buds of the silver maple are a very important early spring foods for squirrels. The seeds are also supposedly eaten by a variety of birds and mammals. In my yard, I don’t think I have ever seen anything eat a maple seed and I would gladly share them.

Silver maples are native to eastern Kansas. They do their best in bottomlands where the water table is high. That is why they have such shallow roots so that when they grow in towns, they tend to crack sidewalks, driveways and irrigation systems. The wood is attractive and easy to work with. It is used in furniture, cabinetry, and making musical instruments.

When I was at the nature center, we learned something else about silver maples. Their sap can be used to make maple syrup. Silver maple sap is not as sweet as that of sugar maples but it can be used. Sugar maples take about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup but the ratio for silver maples is about 55 to one.

We ordered special equipment to collect sap from a couple of huge silver maples at the nature center. It took a couple of weeks to get enough sap to give it a try. After filtering unwanted stuff from the sap, you must carefully boil it down until it is the right consistency.

Since our biggest pot only held 5 gallons, it was a very time-consuming process. I think we started with about 50 gallons of sap and ended up with about 3 quarts of usable syrup. The syrup was very dark brown but it had a good flavor. We had a public program on syrup making and let the participants sample it.

Our huge silver maple is loved by squirrels and birds and does provide some shade. However, I think I have run out of positive things to say about it. The seeds have taken over my life. They are almost as thick as the blades of grass in the lawn. They have filled the gutters. They have even washed up into big drifts in some of the flower beds.

If I could only think of some commercial use for them. The seeds have some protein and are low in fat and have been used as an emergency food. Maybe the Smith Maple Seed Diet Plan? Heck, you can promote anything on the internet with the right sales pitch such as: “Lose weight and clean up the neighborhood at the same time.”

People In The UK Are Going Crazy For This Diet, But Does It Work?

Word is, this very principle—eating your favorite foods without any weighing, counting, or measuring—is what makes the program effective. “Because you’re eating many delicious foods that you enjoy (including small amounts of foods that most diets ban, like sweets), you never feel hungry or deprived, and are more likely to make healthy eating a choice instead of a chore,” says Sanders.

Read on to find out how the Slimming World program works—and more importantly, if it will work for you.

What’s On The Menu

Slimming World’s Food Optimizing eating plan is based on the principles of energy density (the calories per gram in a food) and satiety (how filling a food is). The program encourages you to eat a long list of everyday foods that are low in calories and highly satisfying freely, without the need to weigh or measure portions. These are called Free Foods and include grub like fruits and veggies, lean meats, eggs, grains, and pasta. In the Slimming World guide, some Free Foods are marked with a P (Protein-rich) or an S (Speed) symbol. P foods are super-filling and keep you full longer, while S foods are low in calories yet satiating, helping you slim down at an efficient pace.

The other two nutritional pillars of the plan are Healthy Extras and Syns. Healthy Extras are measured amounts of foods that are higher in calories but contain vitamins and minerals that are important for weight loss and overall health—for example, foods that are high in calcium (think: milk and cheese) and fiber (whole-wheat bread and cereals). Participants are to nosh on two picks from the calcium-rich foods list and one from the fiber-based foods list daily.

Syns, short for synergy, include controlled amounts of treats, such as wine, chocolate, cake, potato chips, and sauces. Depending on your weight, height, and lifestyle, you’ll be given a certain number of Syn points to spend each day. Each treat has a Syn value attached—so you’ll have to cash in your Syns to enjoy that post-work glass of wine.

“It’s the synergy between Free Foods, Healthy Extras, and Syns that makes the process of Food Optimizing unique, effective, and easy to live with in the long-term,” says Sanders.

In conjunction with healthy meal plans, Slimming World encourages physical activity using a “baby steps” approach. The program wants users to work up to the ultimate goal of 30 minutes of exercise, five times a week. There are food and activity trackers to help you set goals, celebrate milestones, and stay motivated.

Pros And Cons

The best thing about the Slimming World program is that it encourages participants to nosh on a wide variety of nutrient-dense whole foods, with particular emphasis on fruits, veggies, and lean protein, all of which are satiety-promoting eats, says Edwina Clark, R.D., head of nutrition and wellness at Yummly. 

It’s also a less restrictive program, seeing as the list of free foods is fairly extensive, while other foods (dairy, grains, even sweets) are allowed in moderation. Unlike diets that ban certain foods or food groups, this isn’t an elimination diet. All foods remain on the table (pun totally intended), which decreases the odds of experiencing the binge-guilt-repeat pattern that can strike—say, during an off day—and derail your weight loss efforts, says Clark. (Hit the reset button—and burn fat like crazy with The Body Clock Diet!)

Another big pro: Hydration with non-caloric beverages is a key principle of the program. “Weight-loss programs often neglect hydration,” says Clark. “Meanwhile, it can have a profound impact on hunger and appetite control.” Many of the pangs attributed to being famished, such as a noisy stomach and MIA energy levels, also strike when your body needs to be topped off with water. Staying properly hydrated is one of the easiest ways to keep your calorie intake in check without even trying.

This easy water bottle hack will help you stay properly hydrated every single day:

Finally, there’s a community page to share your weight-loss journey and success stories with others, giving you a strong support system with which to reach your goal weight. “This sense of community has been shown to be a beneficial model, especially when looking at other successful companies (Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig) which encourage camaraderie, inspiration, and healthy competition amongst members,” says New York-based registered dietitian Tracy Lockwood.

A few caveats to keep in mind: Portion size guidance appears to be limited. So even though not having to count calories or obsess over portion sizes is a perk, keeping an eye on food quantity is a major component of weight loss, says Clark. Choosing inappropriately large portions of foods—even Free Foods—could lead to weight gain. And without mastering the basics of calorie counting and portioning, you may struggle to keep the weight off if you eventually decide to go rogue.

“While certain foods allowed on the Free Foods list may contribute to satiety, some are also calorie-dense and nutritionally poor,” says Caroline Apovian, M.D., director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at the Boston Medical Center. “These include white noodles, potatoes, and rice, among others.” These foods will provide very little to your body, nutritionally speaking, while contributing significantly to your daily caloric intake. “In addition, a few of these foods spike blood sugar, but don’t have the protein or fiber content to sustain that energy, leading to an energy crash and cravings later on,” she says.

Other questionable foods on the Free Foods list, like duck, goat, and lamb are high in pro-inflammatory saturated fats and should be consumed in moderation, says Clark. Same goes for processed meats, such as Canadian bacon, ham, and pastrami (also on the Free Foods list). Additionally, some of the free flavorings, like soy sauce and bouillon cubes, can be high in sodium and can cause water retention in some, particularly when consumed in excess.

There’s also a heavy restriction on fats and oils that could sabotage your weight loss efforts in the long run, says Lockwood. “By not incorporating the appropriate amount of healthy fats in your diet, your body isn’t provided with a sense of satiation, which could lead to grazing all day on foods that may not even fill you up, let alone satisfy you,” she says. This could, ultimately, send your scale numbers in the wrong direction.

The Verdict

As long as you keep an eye on the higher-calorie free foods, there are plenty of positives that you can pull from the Slimming World program to give your weight-loss efforts a boost. “This is a good plan, and if someone is enjoying Slimming World and meeting their goals, they should stick with it,” says Apovian. Adding more protein and vegetables to your diet, limiting sweets, and becoming more active are all proven weight loss strategies. 

This program also teaches the importance of setting goals and planning ahead, which fosters commitment and accountability. The built-in social support, educational materials, and affordability are just icing on the (syn-worthy) cake.

Diet Doc Releases Top Weight Loss Program to Reduce Blood …

ANCHORAGE, AK–(Marketwired – April 24, 2017) – The U.S. market is saturated with fad diets, weight loss supplements, and “easy fixes” that promise to deliver rapid weight loss with no consequences. In reality, weight loss is far more challenging and obesity is a vast, continuously increasing problem. More than 30% of all Americans are overweight or obese individuals, regularly dealing with issues like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. With obesity comes higher body mass index (BMI) levels and increased health problems. For this reason, reducing excess body fat and pursuing healthier lifestyles is vital. A long-term weight loss solution, ideally monitored by a doctor and customized to the dieter’s nutritional needs, is important for consistent weight loss progress. A regular fitness routine and a balanced diet with calorie monitoring are also important.

According to Dr. Nishant Rao, the resident medical expert at Diet Doc, a nationally recognized top weight loss program, regulating blood sugar is also crucial to the weight loss and weight maintenance process. When regulated, blood sugar levels have virtually no negative impact on weight loss. However, when blood sugar levels elevate too much, the body’s ability to process glucose is obstructed. As a result, the body stores the extra glucose as fat, which can ultimately lead to worse issues like diabetes, heart disease, or even obesity.

According to Dr. Rao, “Diet Doc uses low carb dietary principles along with the Ketogenic diet to facilitate sizable drops in blood sugar, which can allow for fat loss to occur more effectively.” In severe cases, variations of intermittent fasting, or IF, may also be employed in order to “create extended fasting windows which further reduce blood sugar, allowing for fat to get used without storing sugar.” At Diet Doc, a top weight loss program is offered for all patients. The unique dietary needs of each individual are considered in order to maximize efficiency, safety and maximal results. For this reason, all patients receive custom-designed weight loss programs and diet consulting. With a safe, doctor-supervised diet plan and guidance for life, Diet Doc patients gain the following benefits within the very first month:

  • Rapid but healthy weight loss
  • Understanding of past weight loss failures and detailed future planning
  • Customized and balanced diet plans that curb hunger and establish a healthy lifestyle
  • Attention to specific nutritional needs based on individual body chemistry

For patients who struggle with portion control or emotional eating, Diet Doc offers solutions like Metwell, which helps balance metabolism and reduce appetite without harmful side effects. Medical weight loss solutions like these, especially in combination with popular diets like the Ketogenic Diet, have been shown to be effective when doctor-supervised and customized to an individual’s dietary needs, according to Dr. Rao.

With a team of doctors, nurses, nutritionists and motivational coaches, Diet Doc products help individuals lose weight fast and keep it off. Patients can get started immediately, with materials shipped directly to their home or office. They can also maintain weight loss in the long-term through weekly consultations, customized diet plans, motivational coaches and a powerful prescription program.
