Frequent Follow Up Helps Weight Loss
The United States Preventative Task Force and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommend frequent follow up visits in the increments of once, twice or 4 times a month to help support and assist in weight loss and weight management.
Avoiding Artificial Sweeteners and Sweet Drinks
Although artificial sweeteners do not provide any caloric benefit, it is believed that consumption of such products (except stevia, xylitol, and alcohol sugars) will lead to elevated insulin levels and decreased blood sugar which then will lead to the craving of carbohydrate rich foods. This will cause weight loss to stop and possibly cause the accumulation of fat.
