The 20/20/20 rule is a simple rule to help you lose more weight and eat a bit more mindfully. People who follow this rule, not only eat less but also feel satisfied eating less food. The result? Weight loss! If you eat in front of the TV or eat while driving or eat while reading your cell phone, this post is for you! Here's how you do it!
You’re sick and tired of dieting. I get it. That’s why it’s easy to justify the cost of the ReShape Balloon™ because you think this tool will do all the work for you. You have it implanted, you’ll eat less, and over time you’ll lose all your weight. It seems like a magic pill. Who then needs 12 months of coaching with a Dietitian if a gastric balloon can do all that?
You are probably eating much less than you did before your gastric balloon procedure. However, your eyes may not be used to seeing less on your plate. To make matters worse, dinner plate sizes continue to grow, making it easy to serve yourself much more than your stomach can handle.

Running is not for everyone, and it’s certainly not for individuals who suffer from joint or back pain, or for those who are starting to ease their way into a more active lifestyle. While running burns more calories than walking does, walking should not be quickly dismissed for your choice of exercise.
Eating smart before and after exercise can make or break all of your hard work. Skimp on a pre-workout snack and you may not have enough energy to power through your routine. Overdo your post-workout meal and you will lose the calorie-blasting benefit of your exercise. Balancing what you take in with what you expend depends on the type and duration of your exercise, as well as when you last ate.
It happens to everyone. As we age our bodies naturally lose muscle mass and strength. Both men and women experience the loss in muscle mass and strength shortly after the age of 30. It gets worse as we age and it doesn’t discriminate! Women however, experience a significant loss of muscle size and strength around the age of menopause while most men do not see this significant change until round 60-75 years old.
