Aesthetic Science Clinic's BodyLight Program: Lose the Pounds and Be Light for Life

One-time, big-time. This is what a lot of people think and dream about when it comes to shedding extra pounds and body fats. The thing is, even if you achieve losing a lot of weight, staying that way for good is what would really matter in the long run, right?

Unfortunately, few people achieve that kind of success after spending money on fad diets, weight-loss supplements, gym memberships fees (that aren't maximized because you ended up not having enough time to work out), and other solutions that didn't let you achieve the results you wanted.

According to Aesthetic Science Clinic, everyone who wants to lose the extra pounds permanently should make weight management part of their lifestyle. That means unlearning misguided beliefs and being re-educated on the basics of loving and taking good care of one's body.

Presenting the BodyLight Program -- a system that integrates Science, Wellness, and Life Coaching to help manage weight and give you the ideal lasting results that balance the mind, body, and spirit. This holistic approach is anchored on the following guiding principles:

• Men and women are not created equal. Differences in genetic make-up, upbringing, and other environmental factors require a more personalized approach to weight management. What works for one might not work for another.
• The weight of a person is impacted greatly by his or her lifestyle that encompasses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of that person.
• There are no quick fixes and no shortcut to losing weight. 
• Losing weight can be a pleasant journey and should not be equated with suffering.
• The ultimate goal is not to lose the excess weight, but to stay healthy.

Under the BodyLight program, a personalized plan will be made based on the following steps to a HEALTHY Weight Management:

Heed experts' advice instead of believing infomercials that are created to sell products. Take the words of celebrity endorsers with a grain of salt because they are paid to say the right things. Verify that the health professionals you are consulting has the appropriate license for the products and services they offer. Do not believe everything you read on the internet!

Evaluate medical history to rule out any underlying medical condition that may be causing unhealthy weight gain such as hypothyrodism, Cushing's syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, adrenal insufficiency, and gut problems.

Avoid unhealthy eating habits. Many people fail at their weight loss journey because of the lack of discipline in consuming the right kinds of food. Eat whole and real foods, avoid refined grains and bad fats, choose a low sugar and low salt diet, alkalize your body with an alkaline diet, get adequate hydration, and limit alcohol consumption.

AS' steps to healthy weight management
Live an active life. Engage in a regular physical activity like running, brisk walking, yoga, pilates, or any sport that you can include in your daily regimen.

Take a break and find ways to reduce and manage stress. Most emotional eaters don't realize that stress contributes significantly to excessive weight gain. Manage stress by learning relaxation techniques such as meditation, taking walks and connecting with nature, listening to music, or practicing yoga.

Have enough sleep because lack of it also contributes to weight gain. Stay fit by getting at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep and avoid sleeping very late at night. Try to get as much sleep as you can and avoid substances that disrupt sleep.

You have to keep a healthy mental and emotional state because a lot of weight problems stem from psycho-emotional issues. Keep a happy disposition and stay away from toxic relationships. A positive self-esteem can foster love for one's body and translates into a desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

More than losing the extra pounds, BodyLight aims to eliminate faulty beliefs and unhealthy practices that contribute to excess weight gain so that positive results will be easier to sustain. With this program, losing will be just as sweet as winning.
