New Year, New Plan, New You
There is no better time than the start of a New Year, with the holidays firmly behind you, to recommit to better health and losing weight. Losing weight is the single-most important step you can take to improve your health – but you don’t have to do it alone - and you don’t have to jump onto the latest weight loss fad. Palmdale and Encino family medicine physician, Dr. Katayoun Motlagh, emphasizes a comprehensive approach focused on patient education, wherein she helps her patients learn how to lose weight and maintain reasonable weight loss long-term.
The first step to having a new you is to recognize that the old habits aren’t working. Whether you’ve been a yo-yo dieter, a fad dieter, starving yourself until you binge, or simply frozen in inaction because you’re afraid anything you do will only make things worse, it’s time to embrace a new plan. The new plan should be based in science, promote healthy habits and balance, and be designed for you, your body, and your health.
Smarter Exercise + Smarter Diet Choices = Success
You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight, and you don’t have to train for a marathon to burn enough calories to keep the weight off. Just choosing to be more active every day – even ten minutes at a time – can make a difference. And cutting out sugar and sugary drinks and replacing them with fruits and vegetables will show up not only on the scale but on your waistline. It’s making small changes that you can turn into lifelong habits that make the biggest difference in your health.
An Extra Boost
Dr. Katayoun Motlagh works with her patients to develop a comprehensive weight loss plan that is designed to help her patients lose weight, control weight and treat or manage any weight-related conditions.
