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.
During your ReShape Gastric Balloon implantation period, it’s extremely important to take the prescribed medications from your healthcare provider. Prescribed medications will include antispasmodics, antiemetics and pain relievers which are important to help manage post-procedure symptoms such as soreness and nausea.
As you are approaching the six month mark for your ReShape Balloon Procedure, it’s time to start planning for your ReShape Balloon removal. This is a significant milestone! The instructions that follow will help make sure the procedure goes smoothly and maintain your weight loss when the balloons are no longer in your stomach.
Experiences will vary, but the vast majority of our patients tell us that the smaller portion sizes they got used to while the balloon was inserted continue to satisfy them when the ReShape Balloon removal happens.
Losing weight is an exciting process! You feel good, have more energy and are seeing your body change. But at some point along the weight loss journey, many people hit a wall. Their weight just won’t budge –even when their healthy diet and higher activity levels remain the same. This frustrating part of the journey is known as a weight loss plateau.
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.
Findings from the National Weight Control Registry (10,000 members) found that, for adults, frequent self-weighing (at least once per week) was one of the behaviors associated with successful weight control—defined as weight loss averaging 70 pounds and maintained for six years.
