Healthy lifestyle is easy to understand once you learn.  Dr. Roma Wallen gives a few tips, when she further explains in the video above, that will help you get on the right track to this healthy lifestyle of losing weight.  First, it is important to plan ahead.  Pick a day of the week, lets say Sunday, and take a couple of hours to prepare your meals for that entire week.  This will allow you not to second guess whether or not you have something to eat at home or after you get off work.  Also, it will provide you with additional options for snacks while you’re waiting for dinner to be finished.  Implement this simple tip and you can begin your mission to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Another important thing to realize is that you should eat every 3-4 hours.  This will have your metabolism working in your favor.  By helping your body to avoid being hungry all the time, you will avoid making poor decisions when it comes to choosing what you eat.  You’ll turn from those mini chocolate bars that don’t seem as bad as a King Size Candy, and you’ll begin to choose the pre-chopped produce in the fridge.  You might even find yourself looking in the mirror and more often than not you’ll be feeling good about the healthy lifestyle your choosing.

Dr. Wallen and all the medical staff at the Metabolic Medical Centers are here to help you lose weight and keep it off permanently.  All programs are basic but Metabolic is designed to customize each weight loss program individually to fit your lifestyle.  This gives you the opportunity to carry on with your life by making a healthy lifestyle a part of it.  Metabolic Medical Center will even help you understand what it takes to create a healthy lifestyle and have fun losing weight.

There are no counting calories, points, or contracts.  You will eat whole food and lose fat while retaining lean muscle mass.

Our physicians make the difference so you can achieve healthy weight loss. You will see one of our caring doctors on every visit.  All Metabolic Medical Center programs are tailored to meet your specific weight loss needs based on family history, results of our labs, personal goals, and lifestyle. You will lose weight quickly and safely with our low-fat, reduced carbohydrate and moderate protein programs.  All our programs protect muscle mass while you lose fat.

You, your family, and friends will see results in weeks, not months.  Your waistlines become smaller. It’s easy to stay motivated with results like that!  In just 8 weeks you can look and feel 10 years younger, have more confidence, and feel better about yourself.  Our maintenance plans are just as customized as our weight loss programs.   This will help you continue to have success with the weight that you have lost.  Throughout your weight loss, you are learning about healthy food choices, portion sizes, substitutions, and healthy cooking.  Metabolic Medical Centers give you the tools for continued success.

Initial visits can take up to 1 1/2 hours due to lab work, EKG, program instructions, and work ups.  You and your physician select the best time for your return visit that best suits your schedule.  Return visits are usually 30 minutes or less.

Metabolic has weight loss centers in Columbia, Mt. Pleasant, Murrells Inlet, West Ashley and Bluffton South Carolina.
