8 Things Nutritionists Want You to Know About Weight Loss But Would Never Say to Your Face

Adapting to a healthy food plan and diet during your first few days of the ReShape weight loss program can be a little difficult. While you’re adjusting to the ReShape dual intragastric weight loss balloon, it’s important to keep in mind the specific dietary needs you’ve discussed with your ReShape nutrition coach, as well as your weight loss goals and food history.

You may also want to keep in mind the following tips featured in Women’s Health that can help you maximize your results during your ReShape weight loss journey.

Make Weight Loss a Priority
Always make time to use the important ReShape tools included in the ReShape weight loss program, like the patient portal, to help track your progress, activity, and food intake.

Your ReShape Coach Knows How Committed You Really Are
You can count on your ReShape nutrition coach for recommendations that will help modify your diet, plus recipes and snack ideas, but if you’re not willing to make a change, none of your coach’s tips will help.

Be Honest
Being honest with yourself and your ReShape coach is the only way you’ll be able to make life-changing habits that will lead to life-changing weight loss. Don’t let anyone, including yourself, hold you back from achieving your weight loss goals!

Exercise is Only a Small Part of Weight Loss
The ReShape dual gastric balloon helps jump start your weight loss during the first months of the ReShape weight loss program. During that time, you’ll work with your ReShape nutrition coach who will teach you how to change your eating habits, and how to continue a healthy lifestyle even after the gastric balloon is removed.

Your ReShape Coach Will Notice if Your Food Tracking is Too Perfect
Remember, no one’s perfect. So don’t feel bad if it takes you a while to get the hang of food tracking during your first few days on your ReShape weight loss journey. Just be sure to track your food intake on the ReShape patient portal daily and talk to your ReShape nutrition coach about any questions or difficulties you may be experiencing.

Get Your Nutritional Needs From Foods
Talk to your ReShape nutritional coach about any supplements you may be taking – chances are he or she will have you swap them for protein or natural food sources.

Don’t Get Distracted By The Scale
Be sure to use your ReShape wireless scale, but remember, what matters more than the numbers is establishing a healthy lifestyle that will help you maintain your weight loss for good.

It’s Hard to Makes Changes, But It’s Worth It
Patients that achieve the greatest success with ReShape are excited about making changes and ready to adopt a healthy lifestyle with the initial help of the dual intragastric weight loss balloon and a full year of coaching that they can sustain for years. It may be a little challenging at first, but it’s so worth it!
