Short Term Weight Loss is a Good Starting Point…

but Balanced Weight Management After Dieting Should be Your Ultimate Goal

There are 3 critical things to understand about weight loss that will help you maintain a stable weight after dieting:

  1. One of the greatest hazards of dieting is losing muscle mass along with fat.
  2. Muscle is required to burn calories. Therefore, when you decrease your muscle mass via dieting, you will have less muscle to burn calories after you return to your regular eating patterns. In other words, you will regain your lost weight. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, dieters regain almost all of their lost weight within 5 years after dieting.
  3. If you start dieting again you will lose yet more muscle, further inhibiting your ability to burn calories.

And thus the hopeless cycle of yo-yo dieting is set…unless you’ve chosen the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method.

This specialized training has made them knowledgeable in the treatment and handling of whiplash injuries, specifically those caused by automobile crashes.

Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) is a dramatically new type of x-ray system, coupled with new digital and optic technology, which allows clinicians to view the spine in real-time motion at 30 x-rays per second. The procedure is performed with the patient standing, and actively moving in a weight-bearing position within the system. Coupling motion with x-ray allows us to find hidden problems not readily visible on a standard x-ray. This is especially useful when searching for ligamentous injury, such as those caused by automobile crashes.
