"I know what to do, I just don't do it."

Written by
The other day I met with a patient I hadn't met before although she had been on the plan well over a month with little weight loss. She wasn't doing well but she did not immediately tell me what the problem was. I kept gently prodding and probing but the only answer she kept repeatedly giving me was, "It’s just me, I know what to do and I just need to do it."
The other day I discussed how difficult keeping excess weight off is. I also mentioned the importance of learning accountability so that doesn't happen so readily. Today I am discussing accountability and some ways you can actually learn that skill while in the process of losing weight.

Hope for Binge Eaters!

Written by
While many people simply overeat and neglect exercise, there are still many who fall under the category of binge eating. In many ways this is even harder to control because it is so much more like a real addiction to drugs.

Written by
I'm sure most people have heard that hot chili peppers and even hot spicy food can stimulate your metabolism to burn a few more calories a day. Now medicine has taken this a step further, taking a natural vegetable and developing a real medicine from the hot pepper’s active compound, capsaicin.
