Many people want to lose weight but don’t know where to start. First decide on your motive. Do you just want to fit into a swimsuit for the summer or do you want a lifetime of good health? Appearance is a strong motivator because we all want to look good, but that isn’t always enough to effect long term change. Consider the overall health aspect. Consider how much time and money you may spend in the doctor’s office. Hadn’t you rather be doing something else? Consider the money spent on prescription drugs. Is there another place to spend that cash? Insurance premiums rise with increased diagnoses. Can you afford that? Imagine how you will feel when you are in control of your life, free to live life to your fullest potential, unencumbered by excess weight.

After deciding what your motivation is, then you need to decide on a method. At David’s Way we promote a lifestyle instead of a diet. When your lifestyle creates a healthy mind and body, you’re always ready for swimsuit season. With dieting, gearing up for summer is just routine. The main problem with dieting is that you are always looking for the end so that you  can return to your former ways of eating. When you  do, the weight will return, along with depression, low self-esteem  and many physical problems associated with obesity.

Keto is popular now. It will work quickly however, it’s very difficult  to maintain. Realistically no one is going to live indefinitely with such low carbohydrates. Keto is based on eating less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day while consuming almost entirely protein and fat.

There are apps that can help you lose weight, however you must be  strongly self motivated and driven to living a healthier life, because there is little to no support with these apps. It’s all on you.

There are a few weight loss groups that charge significant monthly  fees and offer programs that may or may not work due to their ambiguous nature. Food intake is measured in units other than calories, such as points. Weight loss is usually slow or non-existent because the programs allow too many calories. They allow users to continue unhealthy dietary habits which will often lead to the same cravings and frustrations encountered before beginning the program.

At David’s  Way, we encourage a much broader food base than Keto. You will always have something that you want to eat.

We  provide the support that is missing  with the apps by replying to your comments and questions and through personal online consultation.

Unlike most of the weight loss groups that allow you to eat significant amounts of processed food and even sell it themselves, we encourage you to eat real food. By eating whole foods and cutting out refined sugar, you will lose your cravings and the frustration that accompanies them. You will detox from  sugar and in about 2 weeks your cravings for simple carbs will have dissipated. You will be free to choose the pathway to health without frustration. This is a permanent fix as long as you adhere to the principles of David’s Way.

We also promote  stress reduction as a primary goal. This will expedite weight loss because stress increases cortisol production. Cortisol is associated with weight gain, especially around  the waist.

Of these different weight management programs, only Davidsway has the goal of ultimate health because we want to help you get fixed and let you go. We do not want to keep you languishing around, miserable because you can’t lose the weight plumping up our bank account. Weight management is a necessary component of healthy living. We will help you lose, gain or maintain your weight, depending on your needs.

When you’re ready to be in control of your health, we can help help you discover your best self.
