The Doctors’ Travis Stork Offers Tips for Weight Loss

Weight Loss Advice

We all know and love him from the award-winning The Doctors television show, but Dr. Travis Stork is much more than a television star. This summer, he’s been on a mission to keep people active and in doing so, he’s shared with us some great fitness advice that can keep us feeling young and healthy. Brought to us by Prevention Magazine, here is Dr. Travis Stork’s  best tips for losing weight and staying fit!

  • There’s more time to exercise than you might think. Dr. Stork suggests taking a ten minute walk after each meal. It’s a quick way to add 30 minutes of exercise each day to your lifestyle.
  • Find an activity that you love and commit. The Doctors star suggests finding an activity that you enjoy and make the most of it.
  • Avoid the fad diet routine. To really lose weight, engage in resistance exercises as well as a healthy diet. A healthy combination of both methods is essential for long term weight loss.

At Midwest Medical Aesthetics we have many additional options to achieving your weight loss goals. These suggestions, combined with our techniques, can give you a new body! Contact Midwest Medical to learn more!

5 Reasons Why Your Diet is Not Working

We’ve all been there: the many unsuccessful trips to the gym, the expensive bills at the health food store and that scale that simply will not budge. So what’s the problem? According to a recent article in Prevention magazine, there may be other factors that are contributing to your weight loss troubles. Here are 5 reasons why you’re losing more faith than weight during your diet.

  1. You’re not consuming enough calories. There’s a fine line between boosting your metabolism and stunting it.
  2. You let yourself indulge in a high-calorie treat after you work out as a reward.
  3. You consume diet drinks because they have no calories, but they are actually raising your insulin levels and causing your body to store calories as fat.
  4. Your friends are overweight or have bad eating habits which distort your perceptions and increases temptations.
  5. You’ve completely eliminated carbs and fat resulting in a deficiency of the nutrients that give you energy.
Dieting can sometimes cause more stress than success, but Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas near Kansas City can help you finally achieve your weight loss goals and the figure you’ve always wanted. Browse the full list of weight loss procedures, treatments and diet programs, and then request an appointment online when you are ready to stop stressing and start seeing that scale move towards success.

Data Shows an Increase in Popularity & Acceptance of Cosmetic Plastic Surgeries

Cosmetic surgery may not be something you had ever thought of before, but this new data may change your mind. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 13.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in 2011 across the United States. While keeping up with trends has never been a valid argument for anyone doing anything they’re uncomfortable with, the facts are clear that cosmetic surgeries are more advanced, safer and much more widely accepted today.

Two types of cosmetic surgeries that specifically grew in popularity last year were breast augmentation and weight reduction procedures. In 2011, there were more than 96,000 breast augmentations performed. The number of liposuction procedures performed last year also increased from 2010 as weight control remains a top priority among Americans. Even with diet and exercise, certain stubborn areas like love handles are simply hard to get rid of. By embracing liposuction, individuals can get over that initial hurdle and get back to looking their best.

Those looking for more information on breast augmentation and liposuction procedures in the Kansas or Missouri area can schedule a consultation at Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas. After a thorough body analysis, Midwest Medical Aesthetics can help you find the laser liposuction or weight loss plan that will have you looking slim and trim in no time.

Dieting Tips that Dispel Myths Inspired by Livestrong.com

Weight management is a goal that requires strategy and active efforts and should ultimately result in a lifetime of healthy living, not just a month of losing pounds. Jumping into weight loss with the latest crash diet may actually make you gain weight in the long-run, especially if you develop unhealthy habits in the process. From Livestrong.com, here are some helpful tips for approaching weight loss that dispel some of the myths that fad diets create.

  • Slight diet changes at the beginning will give you the momentum to successfully make bigger changes later on.
  • Avoid lots of juices and beverages (diet or not) that contain empty calories or fake sweeteners. Choose water, the ultimate health promoting liquid.
  • Eating low-calorie, nutrient-rich snacks between meals will help you eat smaller portions at mealtimes while boosting your metabolism.
  • Balance and moderation is the key, so be careful not to deprive yourself too much. Allowing an occasional sweet treat will help you avoid binging later on.
  • Remember to forgive yourself if you slip up. Focus on why you want to lose weight and your success to keep going.

We offer a wide variety of weight loss solutions here at Midwest Medical Associates in Leawood, Kansas including diet programs such as HCG, diet snacks and supplements as well as safe, non-surgical laser liposuction. Visit the MMA website to see our full list of weight loss products and services.

Defeating Diet Downfalls: Social Situations & Being Too Nice

Was the greasy, junk food a bigger rival than a football team for you this past Super Bowl Sunday? It’s events like these that remind us what an influence environment has on our eating habits. We can all admit to having ditched our diets to eat what our friends or family are eating. Whether it’s too much concern about manners when someone prepares a dish for you or too little concern about your motivation to lose weight, these are the moments that can throw any hard work you may have put in, straight down the garbage disposal.

A recent article in Prevention Magazine reports on a fascinating study that shows how being a people pleaser can contribute to weight gain or inability to lose weight.

“The research found that people-pleasers (those who reported worrying about hurting other people, frequently putting others’ needs before their own, and being sensitive to criticism…sound familiar?) tended to overeat in social settings in an effort to make other people feel more comfortable—and that overeating led to unwanted calories.”

We all have weaknesses when it comes to dieting, but now you can recruit Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas to finally achieve weight loss victory! With cosmetic treatments and procedures both surgical and non-surgical as well as the industry’s leading diet programs including HCG, MMA can help you defeat that stuck scale and win the figure of your dreams. With our help, you’ll be able to enjoy your social life rather than stress about it! Visit the MMA website to see our selection of weight loss services and products.
