You're watching "Healthy Living," brought to you by PhD Weight Loss and Nutrition, featuring Dr. Ashley Lucas.
When you're counting calories and have a consistent exercise regimen, you expect to see immediate, impactful results. But sometimes that doesn't happen. Scientific research offers an explanation for why weight loss can be incredibly difficult and nearly impossible for some without the right resources. Much of what we know about dieting and exercise does not address those elements like environment, genetics, and other factors that contribute to how we may metabolize food and may explain why the scale just doesn't budge. For example, if you're a Type 2 diabetic, your metabolism is unique compared to someone who has 20 to 30 pounds to drop and has no underlying medical conditions. At PhD Weight Loss and Nutrition, we'll get to know you to understand what has happened in your life that shifted how your mind or body deals with food. Some people are naturally lean and their metabolism is very tolerant so they can eat, exercise, and burn calories easily, but that's not the usual story. The secret to successful weight loss is understanding that it's not just about the science. It's not just about what and when you eat, but it's also about how you think and how you feel. And you're much more likely to maintain success when you create a mindset shift. We'll help you do that. At PhD, in everything we do, we challenge the standard ways of thinking when it comes to nutrition and weight loss. Thinking and acting differently is at the core of our program. It's super simple, effective, based on science, and customized for you and for every person who is ready to make it change in their health and their life.
