Learn more about this weight loss program that could potentially alleviate your back pain.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, around 31 million Americans have lower back pain. This affliction is so common it is actually the leading cause of disability worldwide. While there are several causes for back pain, one of the leading culprits is obesity. The American Obesity Association even discovered that back pain was present in about one-third of obese Americans. Therefore, in order to alleviate back pain, your Chiropractor in Edmonton at Castledowns Chiropractic Clinic offers patients an advanced weight loss plan known as Ideal Protein. Here are some of the top facts you need to know about this program:
This program promotes muscle mass
While it’s important to lose the added weight, it’s still important to promote healthy and strong muscles. Muscles are the engine that burns calories, and strong muscles and a strong body are also going to help alleviate back pain and other ailments. That’s why Ideal Protein is a wonderful option for those looking to lose weight and keep it off. Through high-quality protein meals, we can stimulate the body to burn its own fat reserves all while maintaining a healthy amount of muscle. Losing muscles when dieting can make it hard for someone to continue to burn calories after they’ve stopped dieting; therefore, Ideal Protein promotes healthy weight loss and a healthy lifestyle change.
You learn about physiology and how food affects you
You’ve heard people tell you to eat more protein and less carbs. You probably have heard people throw around words like BMI and body fat percentages and truly have no idea what they mean for you. That’s because a lot of weight loss programs just tell you what you should and shouldn’t do but don’t really explain it. However, with Ideal Protein we teach you the principles behind our bodies and our diets and why certain types of foods are better than others. We want you to make healthy choices; however, you can only make healthy choices if you are educated about it. Therefore, we want to arm you with knowledge as well as muscle.
Nutritional supplements offer a complete diet
Supplements like Natura Calcium and Magnesium offer ingredients to help build muscles and maintain healthy electrolyte levels. Plus these supplements also put back into your body some of what you won’t get due to Ideal Protein’s food restrictions.
You’re weight loss is supervised by a healthcare professional
Especially when you are first starting a weight loss program, you may feel lost or at times frustrated and unmotivated. That is when you need someone to not only hold you accountable, but also push you to continue your goals. That’s another reason why Ideal Protein works. You will receive one-on-one weekly coaching from a certified coach to both teach you about nutrition and also motivate you to take care of yourself.
