Are Superfoods Really Super?

The term “superfood” is a non-scientific one that can refer to any food that is exceptionally healthy because it’s nutrient-dense. Specifically, a superfood may offer the following: amino acids, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, enzymes, clean proteins, vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting phytochemicals. For the purpose of losing weight, superfoods really can be super. They are nutrient-dense, which is especially important when you’re reducing your caloric intake. Superfoods also tend to be low in calories, which certainly supports your medical weight loss goals.

Some examples of hard-to-find superfoods include acai berries and goji berries, but it isn’t necessary to look beyond your local supermarket to find great nutrition. Look for colorful, vibrant vegetables and fruits, including kale, cranberries, and blueberries. Garlic, tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds are also superfoods.

When you become a patient at Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic, we’ll customize your nutrition plan to suit your dietary needs and medical conditions. Call (972) 762-3403 to request information about joining our effective weight loss program in Frisco.


Reached Your Goal Weight? Here's What to Do with Unused Appetite Suppressants

When you lose weight and no longer need to take advantage of our appetite suppression program, what should you do with your unused medications? As with any kind of medicine, your appetite suppressants are only safe for use by you under the supervision of your medical weight loss program doctor. Disposing of them properly will prevent the risk of accidental or intentional misuse by someone else.

In many cities, there are medicine take-back programs that will dispose of your medication for you. The DEA sometimes holds National Prescription Drug Take-Back days, at which time you can bring your medications to them. Alternatively, flush your medications down the sink or toilet. If you put your medicines in the trash, mix them with something like coffee grounds or cat litter and place them in a sealed plastic bag in your trash.

Your team at Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic is also available to answer your questions about medication management in our appetite suppression program in Frisco. Find out more about our weight loss program by calling (972) 762-3403.


The Science of Hunger

When you want to lose weight, one of the things that can make or break your success is hunger. Although many things can make you feel hungry, including habit and stress, true hungry is the result of the interplay of various hormones in your body.

Watch this video to learn more about the way hormones work together in your body to signal when you are hungry and when you are full. By understanding how hunger works, you can learn to control it as you lose weight.

At Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic, our medical weight loss program uses a variety of tools to help you overcome hunger and achieve your goals. To learn more about our weight loss program in Frisco, please call (972) 762-3403.


How Vitamin B12 Lipotropic Injections Are Given

Vitamin B12 lipotropic injections support healthy weight loss by ensuring that you have adequate levels of this important vitamin, which aids healthy liver metabolism and helps to prevent anemia, depression, poor memory, and fatigue. If you receive these injections as part of your medical weight loss program, here is a look at what you can expect.

Choosing an Injection Site

For these kinds of injections, the upper arm is usually the best site for doses less than one mL, but the thigh, outer hip, and buttocks may also be used. There are pros and cons to each injection site, and the person administering the injections will decide what is right for you based on a number of different factors, including your preference. If you get multiple injections over the course of several weeks, you may wish to alternate injection sites.

Cleaning the Skin

Before getting the injection, the skin at the chosen injection site will be cleaned with an alcohol-soaked cotton swab. Doing this removes bacteria from the surface of the skin so that it isn’t introduced into your blood during the injection. The skin is then allowed to dry for a few seconds before the injection is administered.

Giving the Injection

A sterile syringe will be used to draw the vitamin B12 solution from the vial by slowly pushing the syringe plunger down to expel air and then pulling it back to draw in the fluid, until the syringe fills with the desired amount of the solution. The syringe needle will then be inserted in the skin at an angle, and the plunger will be pushed to release the fluid. Try to keep your muscles in the injection area relaxed during the procedure. The needle will then be removed, and you will receive a small bandage over the injection site to control any minimal bleeding that occurs.

Vitamin B12 lipotropic injections are an important part of your medical weight loss program in Frisco at Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic. When you’re ready to reach your weight loss goals, call us at (972) 762-3403.


How to Fight Your Inner Couch Potato at the Office

Exercise and meal planning go hand-in-hand to promote weight loss, but it’s hard to find the time to work out when you’re stuck in an office chair all day. Even if you do manage to make it to the gym a few times per week, it’s harmful to sit down for hours at a time during the rest of your day. Try these quick and easy ideas to boost your overall activity level and tame your inner couch potato.

Get rid of your office chair.

Many people are swapping out their standard swivel chairs for more active solutions, like standing desks and even treadmill desks. If your company isn’t willing to pay for an upgrade, there is a low-cost option: A stability ball. Also called an exercise ball, these are available in all sizes. To use a stability ball as a chair, Livestrong.com recommends the following sizes, based on your height:

  • 45 centimeters for people up to five feet tall
  • 55 centimeters for people five feet to five feet, five inches tall
  • 65 centimeters for people five feet, five inches to six feet tall
  • 75 centimeters for people over six feet tall

The reason why stability balls help you be more active is because they force your core muscles to engage, even while you’re sitting down.

Multitask during phone calls and meetings.

Whenever you take a phone call, get in the habit of standing up. Engaging your leg muscles helps keep blood flowing back up toward your heart. If you don’t need to refer to paperwork or your computer during the call, pace back and forth or walk around the office while you chat. Use the same strategy during small team meetings. Ask your team to join you outdoors for some fresh air and a brisk walk while you get through the agenda for the meeting.

Try simple stretches and exercises in your cubicle.

Take short, but frequent breaks to stretch and exercise at your desk. Lean on your desk and do push-ups. Use the edge of your desk to do bench dips. While seated, extend your legs and flex your toes back toward you.
