See a Demonstration of a Vitamin B12 Lipotropic Injection

Vitamin B12 is one of the nutrients your body cannot make. While this essential vitamin is present in some food sources, many people don’t get enough of it, particularly if they’re cutting calories to lose weight. This is why weight loss doctors may recommend vitamin B12 lipotropic injections to some of their patients.

You can see a demonstration of a vitamin B12 injection when you watch this video. After blood tests revealed she was deficient in vitamin B12, Deirdre began receiving one shot per month to restore her vitamin levels.

Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic offers vitamin B12 lipotropic injections to our clients in Frisco to help them maintain their energy levels while losing weight. If you’re interested in signing up for our safe and effective weight loss program, give us a call at (972) 762-3403.


Are You Getting Enough Fiber?

You’ve probably already heard that fiber is important for good health and weight loss. But what exactly is it and are you getting enough of it? Fiber is a nutrient, but it’s not a vitamin or a mineral. Quite simply, fiber is a carbohydrate that your body can’t digest. Most Americans don’t get enough dietary fiber. Consider talking to your medical weight loss doctor about your fiber requirements, and whether your diet could be improved.

Types of Fiber

There are two types of fiber: Soluble and insoluble. Your body needs both types for good health. Soluble fiber (including pectin and gum) can partially dissolve in water. When you get enough soluble fiber in your diet, it gets to work managing your blood cholesterol levels and blood glucose levels. The other type of fiber, insoluble, cannot dissolve in water. Insoluble fiber, which includes lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose, originates from the cell walls of plants. Its primary purpose is to help food move through the digestive tract. Insoluble fiber does this by binding with water, instead of dissolving in it, and causing stool to soften.

Requirements for Daily Fiber Intake

For every 1,000 calories a person eats daily, it’s recommended that he or she consumes at least 11.5 grams of fiber. This equals 25 grams for people eating 2,500 calories daily. However, weight loss experts recommend aiming for 30 grams of fiber daily. Research suggests that 30 grams of fiber daily can support weight loss, reduce insulin resistance, and reduce blood pressure.

Sources of Fiber

A medical weight loss doctor can help you get started with a diet plan that meets your daily fiber needs. Eating more plant-based foods will increase your fiber intake and reduce your calories. You can find fiber in:

  • Beans
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Oat bran
  • Whole grains

If you’re having trouble getting enough fiber in your daily diet, your doctor might recommend that you take an over-the-counter fiber supplement. Read the label on the product before using it, and follow the dosage instructions. Some products must be taken with lots of water.

Finding Good Walking Shoes for Your New Workout Routine

Medical weight loss specialists know that a successful program is primarily due to a reduction in calorie intake. However, exercising is also important. Even if it only results in minimal calorie use, exercise reduces the risk of chronic diseases. You should start slow, such as by adding a walking routine to your weight loss program. First, find a good pair of walking shoes to reduce the risk of foot pain and injuries.

Choose shoes that are well-cushioned and supportive. If you have high arches, you may benefit from an orthotic insert for extra support. Select a size that allows wiggle room on all sides of your foot and toes. Your toes should never feel scrunched up as you walk. However, the shoe shouldn’t be so large that your feet slide forward and backward within the shoe as you walk. If you have wide feet, look for an extra-wide shoe, rather than buying a pair that are too long.

Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic in Frisco looks forward to meeting you and getting to know your weight loss goals. Call us at (972) 762-3403, and get started on the path to better health.


No Time to Exercise? Try These Creative Scheduling Strategies

Medical weight loss plans typically include an exercise component, but for many people, it’s tough to find the time to work out. In fact, the lack of time is among the most common reasons why people don’t exercise. It may help to pencil it into your daily schedule. Think of it as another must-do task, like taking out the trash. And remember that if you don’t make time for your health now, you’ll be more likely to spend more time at your doctor’s office in the future.

Work out at work.

When you can’t make it to the gym, you can fit exercise into your work day. Go on a brisk walk during your lunch break, but don’t skip lunch entirely. Bring a bag lunch and sit on a park bench, if available. If there are no lunch-friendly destinations within walking distance, run up and down the stairs for 10 minutes before dining.

Fit two workouts into one.

When you do manage to fit a trip to the gym in your schedule, you can do two workouts at the same time. Stretch first, and then hop on the treadmill and set the speed to a brisk walk. You can increase the incline too, if you want more of a challenge. Use two three-or five-pound dumbbells to do a one-minute set of strength training exercises while you walk. Try the following:

  • Triceps extensions
  • Shoulder presses
  • Biceps curls
  • Side laterals
  • Front laterals
  • Standing triceps kickbacks

Work out while you watch.

Most people watch at least a little TV on a daily basis. If you watch a lot, consider cutting back to give yourself more time for a full workout. Otherwise, make good use of the commercial breaks. Go outside and run around your yard for two minutes, then come back in and do squats and lunges while you watch.

Do micro-workouts throughout the day.

You’ll get optimal cardiovascular benefits by sustaining a higher heartbeat for at least 10 minutes, but if all you can find time for is a micro-workout, it’s better than nothing. Every hour or two, stand up to stretch and walk around. If possible, fit in 15 quick crunches or squats. It’ll only take a minute, but it’ll help with your weight maintenance.

What's Really in Soda?

Soda is one of the most common culprits of America’s obesity epidemic. In fact, the typical American guzzles about 6,000 ounces of soda each year. Assuming these beverages are regular soda, that equals about 12 teaspoons every day. So exactly what is all that soda doing to sabotage your weight loss efforts? Watch the accompanying video to find out.

You’ll hear directly from renowned nutritionist Joy Bauer. She explains that regular consumption of soda has been tied to an increased risk of weight gain, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, gout, and heart disease. Diet soda isn’t necessarily any healthier, either, and you’ll learn why when you watch this video.
