No Expiration Dieting…Create a Lifestyle!

A problem many encounter when trying to lose weight is setting unrealistic expectations for themselves. Crash dieting and extreme changes set weight loss patients up for failure because once the goal is reached, such lifestyle is impossible to maintain. Raw diets and green juice cleanses help you lose weight quickly, but once you return to a conventional way of eating, you’ll gain it all back.

With New You Weight Loss Program, we start you off with a detox plan that’ll help flush your system for the first 3 days, and then we provide you with an eating guide that helps kick off a healthy LIFESTYLE. Week by week, you’ll be able to maintain the eating plan and incorporate other alternates that are just as healthy, so you can keep your weight off.

Are you ready to get in the best shape of your life? Our New You Weight Loss Program in Colonial Heights area is just for you. We will help you detox, help you set healthy weight loss goals, and monitor your progress every step of the way. So what are you waiting for? No other weight loss specialist in Petersburg, VA can offer the services and results we offer. Give us a try; you won’t regret it.

11 Genius Tips for Exercising Regularly

11 Tips

Let’s face it, building an exercise routine is tough. When you don’t have a strict schedule, you never know what time you’ll be able to get a workout in. But in order to reach your weight loss goals, you must make working out a priority, something that can’t be bumped aside or treated as a bonus activity you’ll do if you get more time. Our weight loss program helps you develop a passion for seeing results in your body with weekly weigh-ins and continual progress checks, but it’s what you do in between visits that will provide the real results. If working out is a struggle for you, check out these 11 tips that’ll make adding regular exercise to your schedule a breeze! And remember: reaching optimal fitness levels is a work in progress, but by incorporating these tips slowly, you’ll be on your way to the body you deserve!

1. Always exercise on Monday. This sets the psychological pattern for the week. Along those lines…

2. If at all possible, exercise first thing in the morning. As the day wears on, you’ll find more excuses to skip exercising. Get it checked off your list, first thing.

3. Never skip exercising two days in a row. You can skip a day, but the next day, you must exercise, no matter how inconvenient.

4. Give yourself credit for the smallest effort. My father always said that all he had to do was put on his running shoes and close the door behind him. Many times, by promising myself I could quit ten minutes after I’d started, I got myself to start—and then found that I didn’t want to quit, after all.

5. Think about context. I thought I disliked weight training, but in fact, I dislike the guys who hang out in the weight-training area. Are you distressed about the grubby showers in your gym? Do you try to run in the mornings, but recoil from going out in the cold? Examine the factors that might be discouraging you from exercising.

6. Exercise several times a week. If your idea of exercise is to join games of pick-up basketball, you should be playing practically every day. Twice a month isn’t enough.

7. If you don’t have time to both exercise and take a shower, find a way to exercise that doesn’t require you to shower afterward. Twice a week, I have a very challenging weight-training session, but the format I follow doesn’t make me sweat. (Some of you are saying, “It can’t be challenging if you don’t sweat!” Oh yes, believe me, it is.)

8. Look for affordable ways to make exercising more pleasant or satisfying. Could you upgrade to a nicer or more convenient gym? Buy yourself a new iPod? Work with a trainer? Get a pedometer to keep track of your walking distances? Exercise is a high life priority, so this a worthwhile place to spend some money if that helps.

9. Think of exercise as part of your essential preparation for times you want to be in especially fine form—whether in performance (to be sharp for an important presentation) or appearance (to look good for a wedding) or mood (to deal with a stressful situation). Studies show that exercise does help.

10. Remember one of my favorite Secrets of Adulthood, courtesy of Voltaire: Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Don’t decide it’s only worth exercising if you can run five miles or if you can bike for an hour. I have a friend who scorns exercise unless she’s training for a marathon—so she never exercises. Even going for a ten-minute walk is worthwhile. Do what you can.

11. Don’t kid yourself. Belonging to a gym doesn’t mean you go to the gym. Having been in shape in high school or college doesn’t mean you’re in shape now. Saying that you don’t have time to exercise doesn’t make it true.

Enjoy the Benefits of Green Tea!


“If you are cold, tea will warm you.  If you are too heated, it will cool you.  If you are depressed, it will cheer you.  If you are excited, it will calm you.”  ~Gladstone, 1865

While Gladstone pointed out some very true effects of drinking tea, what he neglected to mention is the health benefits associated with drinking tea–specifically green tea. Not only does it warm you, cool you, cheer you up and calm you, but it has monumental effects on your health!

1. Weight loss. Drinking tea helps you feel full, so it has the tendency to curb your appetite. It also helps you burn more calories during a workout. So workout hard after drinking green tea and get a massage. Not only will you enjoy getting more out of your workout, but you’ll also feel great after your sports massage!

2. Anti-aging. Green tea is rich in the antioxidants vitamin E and C. Your skin will begin to look refreshed, and your body will continually feel rejuvenated, resulting in a more youthful disposition.
3. Fights cancer. In a recent study, three out of four chronic leukemia patients who were given green tea extract seemed experienced regression of the disease. The fourth patient also showed some improvement. The doctors gave the extract a try after a 2004 test tube study of green tea revealed that leukemia cells were killed by the substance.

4. Regulates digestive system. Drinking warm tea aids in the digestion of food, preventing indigestion and a sluggish feeling after a large meal. After a large breakfast, lunch, or dinner, enjoy a small cup of hot tea and notice how quickly the “stuffed” feeling subsides.

5. Asthma relief. Green tea contains a substance called theophylline, which is a muscle relaxant, so it can cause the muscles supporting the bronchial tubes to relax — thus reducing asthma’s ability to restrict normal breathing.

Although 5 are listed here, there are countless benefits to drinking green tea. Pick up a pack, enjoy various flavors available, and get on the right track to better health!

Prevent the Monday Blues!


Have you ever wondered why the weekend seems to fly by and suddenly, you’re at home on a Sunday night dreading work the next morning? Well, studies have shown that the reason why we dread Mondays is because we spend all day Sunday doing chores that prepare us for the week ahead as opposed to treating Sunday as, well…the weekend. Almost every Sunday, we’re doing laundry, picking out clothes for the week, helping our children get their schoolwork and school clothes together, and responding to any weekend emails we may have gotten while away from our job. We really have almost no time to relax, which is exactly what we should be doing before starting another long week. In order to prevent the Monday blues, let’s start changing our habits! Find other things to do as opposed to spending the day “handling business” at home.

Instead of coming home from church, cooking dinner, doing laundry and all of the other chores, try ordering food for the family and escaping to do something you enjoy. Fun activities aren’t just for Saturdays! Find a salon that is opened on Sundays, and treat yourself to a mani-pedi. Go on a date with your husband, take your children to go see a movie, or even do some shopping before the stores close. Even better, stop by a spa and get a massage or a facial, and just relax as you pamper yourself.  Don’t look at Sunday as “the day before Monday.” Start thinking of Sunday as “the last day of the weekend,” and go out with a bang!

I do understand, though, that laundry needs to be done, emails need to be responded to, the house needs cleaning. And if you’re on the weight loss program in Petersburg, VA, you probably need to do grocery shopping for healthy food items for the week, per your weight loss specialist in Petersburg, VA. Try getting it done on Saturday, when you would normally be out getting mani-pedis, going to the movies and shopping. That way, you have the rest of the weekend ahead of you once that gets done! When all of your ducks are in a row on Saturday, you can play on Sunday and just sleep through until Monday!

The key here is to minimize stress, which, as we’ve discussed, prevents excessive weight gain. No more dreadful Monday! Sunday is the day of rest, so you owe it to yourself to do just that!
