Spring Weight Loss & Losing Your Winter Weight Gain
While there is no better time than the present to get in shape, something about spring makes losing weight more enjoyable. Warm weather is just around the corner, but there’s still plenty of time to lose some weight. Set yourself up for success by incorporating things that will help with weight loss into your daily routine!
When the weather breaks, we all want to get outside, especially in the Philadelphia area, where we have been cooped up all winter. The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping, inviting us out for a walk or run. This is the perfect time to get started on your new exercise routine. You won’t need a gym membership, and the exercise will do you good, not to mention help you look amazing in that new swimsuit you plan to wear. There is no better time to feel alive and rejuvenated than springtime in Philadelphia. What are you waiting for?
Why Is Spring the Best Time to Lose Weight?
The holidays have gone, and the cold, carb-craving weather has finally left us. It’s time to start over, and spring is ideal for a healthy, new beginning! After all, the weather is perfect, the sun shines longer each day, and fresh foods are easier to come by. We have non surgical approaches to lose weight fast with weight loss diets, appetite suppressants, sublingual energy sprays, HCG Diet Plans as well as B12 and lipotropic diet injections to increase metabolism. Physician Grade vitamins and supplements add value to more advanced treatments of weight management and body shaping.
As spring approaches, many of us are still dealing with the aftereffects of winter — extra weight! Our programs aren’t pre-packaged food, we use fresh, whole ingredients. Seasonal produce is less expensive and more plentiful than out-of-season ingredients. Spring is also an excellent time to get in shape. Many springtime foods naturally aid in weight loss, and not just because they are lighter than hearty winter ones. Many of the summertime foods that we crave are in season, and they are much healthier than the wintertime heavier food choices.
More Sunlight Equals More Activity
In the spring, most of us set our clocks forward an hour. This gives us an extra hour of daylight in the evening. If you’re not an early riser who prefers to work out in the morning, this is an excellent opportunity to work out at night! Take advantage of the late-afternoon sun and go for a walk outside. This is perfect for those with a busy lifestyle that doesn’t have the time in the mornings or desire to go to the gym.
Another benefit of the longer days of spring is that they can help adjust your body’s natural sleep-wake rhythm. This will help make you sleepier at night and more refreshed in the morning. We wake up ready to face the world as the days become brighter and more inviting. This is especially true for people who are depressed during the long winters.
Sleep deprivation, which is more common in the winter, can affect the production of your body’s appetite hormones. When we don’t get enough sleep, it can increase the levels of the one that tells you to eat and decrease the levels of the one that tells you to stop eating. Inadequate sleep can also increase your appetite, especially for high-energy foods like refined carbohydrates. Our FDA approved prescription appetite suppressants to help you in behavior modification and correct eating habits, leaving you feeling lighter, less hungry, and more able to maintain your changes.
Weather Effects Mood and Drive
The weather has an impact on your mood. Exposure to the sun may make you feel more positive, providing you with more motivation to lose weight successfully. Who embarks on such a massive undertaking while feeling down and depressed?
In addition to the endorphin rush that exercise provides, sunlight has been shown to improve your mood and health. Working out outside is a win-win situation!
Another way these longer days of sunshine help is due to the increase of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a chemical that is linked to improved focus, calmness, and mood. Increased exposure to natural light may even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression characterized by recurring seasonal patterns.
There are many reasons that the season’s changing can assist you with getting that jump start on your weight loss, and our supportive staff will be the extra piece of the puzzle to help you sustain and maintain your weight loss.
