STATEN ISLAND, N.Y., Jan. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Steven Albert of The Healthy Body is helping patients get in shape with a healthy weight loss program. The program incorporates holistic care with nutritional counseling and lifestyle modification to help patients lose weight. Each patient receives one-on-one counseling for a completely customized program. Rather than relying on fad diets or supplements, Dr. Albert follows a healthy, scientifically proven approach to weight loss. According to Dr. Albert, this personalized approach helps patients successfully lose weight and keep the pounds off.
The Healthy Body is helping patients lose weight the healthy way through lifestyle modification and nutritional counseling. According to Staten Island chiropractor Dr. Albert, this approach is more effective than fad diets.
"We help patients lose weight the healthy way," said Dr. Albert. "There are no gimmicks, fad diets or dangerous supplements. Instead, our nutrition and lifestyle counseling helps patients identify and correct negative behaviors that contribute to an unhealthy lifestyle. Our personalized approach to losing weight really works."
Dr. Albert says may fad diets starve the body of vital nutrients. Calorie counting and food restrictions can lead to binge eating. He says, "Patients quickly gain back all the weight they lost and then some. Consequently, many individuals feel trapped on a roller coaster of yo-yo dieting and weight gain. We help patients get off the dieting roller coaster and get healthy for life," said Dr. Albert.
During a patient's first visit to the wellness center, Dr. Albert will discuss weight goals, current diet and exercise, and wellness lifestyle. He evaluates each patient's unique nutritional needs and creates a dietary plan customized for each patient. He then works with patients to gradually incorporate changes into their lifestyle.
"By gradually integrating dietary and activity changes, we help patients form new habits," said Dr. Albert. "This healthy approach to behavioral changes really works, and is far more effective than a crash diet."
Dr. Albert says this approach to medical weight loss is successful even following the busy holiday season. "It's easy to overindulge in holiday comfort food," said Dr. Albert. "Our program includes lifestyle and nutritional counseling to help modify behaviors that lead to binge eating and weight gain. With our support, it is possible to balance out the indulgence and still achieve weight loss goals."
As patients lose weight, Dr. Albert says he will incorporate physical therapy or other corrective exercises to retrain the muscles to begin moving again. The practice also implements stress management techniques like acupuncture or yoga. "Our holistic approach to losing weight takes every aspect of a patient's life into account," said Dr. Albert. "Our goal is long-term wellness, not simply achieving a specific number on the scale."
