Add Chiropractic Care to Your Weight Loss Plan

By Rachel Carver

Life gets busy as we juggle family and work obligations. It can be easy to put our overall health and wellness on the back burner, but doing so can have negative effects such as weight gain. Unfortunately, it is much easier to gain weight than it is to lose it.

If you find yourself with some extra pounds, don't despair. Creating a weight loss plan and setting achievable goals will help you drop pounds and feel better. Part of your plan might involve scheduling appointments with your primary doctor and other medical professions. A chiropractor should also be a part of your medical care team.

How to Maintain a Healthy Weight

An important part of staying at an ideal weight is to choose healthy foods. A medical professional can help you determine the appropriate calorie intake based on your body type and how much weight you want to lose. However, you need to fuel your body with nutrient-rich foods such as whole grains, lean protein, and fruits and veggies. Foods high in refined carbs such as pastries and sweets will spike your blood sugar, leaving you feeling hungry and fatigued within a couple of hours.

Factors such as age and medical conditions can cause weight gain. Some people also seek comfort in food when they are stressed. Regular chiropractic care has been shown to improve a person's outlook, reducing stress.

Exercise

In addition to creating a balanced diet, some form of exercise should be in every weight loss plan. Aim for at least 150 minutes per week of physical activity. Intentional movement will burn more calories and combat too much sitting.

You don't need to run a 5K or become a body builder to lose weight. The key is to find something you enjoy and that you will stick with. Start a walking program. Join a seasonal sport. Purchase a stationary bike for your home.

Chiropractic Care

A visit to your local Joint Chiropractic clinic will not directly decrease your scale number. However, it can ensure your body and mind are prepared for your weight loss journey. Regular chiropractic care can keep your neck, back, and other joints in proper alignment. Chiropractic adjustments are safe, affordable, and drug-free. An improved range of motion and the treatment of any joint injuries will help you get the most out of every workout. Chiropractic care can also improve your sleep quality, helping your body rest and prepare for the next day.

Creating healthy habits will help you lose weight and create a healthier version of yourself. From adjustments to recommending exercises to strengthen key muscle groups, The Joint team can be a great partner for you as you start your weight loss journey. The Joint's affordable prices and walk-in visits make care accessible to everyone.
