Losing weight is much easier to talk about than to actually achieve. Most of us who have tried to shed extra pounds quickly realize the process takes time, commitment and discipline. It can be challenging, sometimes even impossible, to lose that weight alone. That’s why Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics now offers DC Lifestyle – a weight loss and lifestyle coaching program designed to help you safely and effectively reach your weight loss goals.
What is DC Lifestyle?
DC Lifestyle is a program adopted by Dr. Jeff Birchall to help patients lose weight while developing healthy lifestyle habits. The program utilizes a proven weight loss program known as Take Shape for Life or TSFL. This program combines three key components; a personal health coach, the Medifast 5&1 Plan and the Habits of Health System.
Personal Health Coach
Your personal health coach is someone that has already walked the path you are now on. This person is there to offer as much support as you need, without becoming a nuisance in your daily life. These coaches are just a phone call away from the people they mentor, to offer coaching, support and motivation.
Habits of Health System
The Habits of Health System was created by Dr. Wayne S. Anderson, the medical director and co-founder of TSFL. These habits are designed to be more than a short-term approach to weight loss; they are a set of habits that will lead you to optimal health over a lifetime. Choose between a book and video series, so you can study Dr. Anderson’s healthy habits in the form you learn from best.
Medifast 5&1 Plan
The Medifast 5&1 Plan is an eating program that is based in controlled portions and balanced nutrition. Prepared meals make up the majority of your daily menu, which gradually expands over a number of weeks to include vegetables, fruit and lean meat and dairy. There is a broad variety of prepared meals, all properly balanced so you can put any meal into our day and rest assured your nutritional needs will be taken care of.
Dr. Birchall believes in the TSFL program personally, because it worked for him. That is why he has incorporated TSFL into the DC Lifestyle, along with monthly meetings covering health-related topics like weight loss, stress management and healthy sleep. His goal is to help others achieve their weight loss goals while adopting healthy habits that will keep them in top condition over a lifetime.
