Patients are Succeeding with AtLast Medical Weight Loss

The AtLast Medical Weight Loss program is helping men and women across Northwest

Alabama achieve their health and weight management goals. Since launching AtLast in

April of 2018, participants have lost a combined total of more than 1,200 pounds. The

simple to follow program utilizes energy-boosting injections; appetite control

medication; and counseling in calorie reduction, nutrition, and exercise.

While losing weight is good for self-esteem, it also reduces the many health risks

associated with extra pounds. By maintaining a healthy weight you avoid higher risks

of many chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, high blood

pressure, osteoarthritis, and some forms of cancer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, a healthy lifestyle involves many choices.

Among them, choosing a balanced diet or healthy eating plan. The Dietary Guidelines

for Americans, 2015-2020, recommends a healthy eating plan that includes the

following components:

  • Emphasis on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products

  • Lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts

  • Foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars

  • An assessment of daily calorie needs

Eat Healthfully and Enjoy It!

A healthy eating plan that helps you manage your weight includes a variety of foods

you many not have considered. If “healthy eating” makes you think about the foods

you can’t have, try refocusing on all the new foods you can eat:

Fresh, frozen, or canned fruits - One caution about canned fruits is that they may

contain added sugars or syrups. Be sure and choose canned varieties of fruit packed

in water or their own juice.

Fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables - You may find that you love grilled or steamed

vegetables with an herb you haven’t tried. When trying canned vegetables, look for

vegetables without added salt, butter, or cream sauce. Commit to going to the produce

department and trying a new vegetable each week.

With a little planning and creativity you can include almost any food in your healthy

eating plan. Remember, its not about what you can’t have, but rather the endless

number of healthy, delicious foods you can have.
