 You’ve no doubt heard the saying: “You are what you eat.” At American Back Center, we take nutrition seriously – because how you eat can seriously affect how you feel.In fact, everything you do and think affects your overall health, and that is our business: to know the whole you, not just your symptoms. All those aches and pains, fatigue, digestive problems, allergies – even headaches – aren’t just annoying little problems. These are early clues to a decline in your health and wellness. Many things can contribute to illness – emotional stress, environmental toxins, lack of exercise, hormonal problems and other lifestyle issues. In addition, poor diet and other factors leads to depletion of nutrients, creating a vicious cycle resulting in increased stress on the mind and body  and continued declining health.

 

Nutrition Weight Loss
 
It is important to understand that there is a right and wrong way to lose weight. A healthy body composition program helps a person weigh less and look thinner by causing excess fat to be lost and muscle to be retained. An unhealthy program may support weight loss, but causes muscle to be lost and excess fat to be retained. An unhealthy weight loss program also increases the risk of other serious conditions.   If you are interested in weight-loss programs or your healthcare practitioner recommends that you lose weight, look for one that is based on regular physical activity and an eating plan that is balanced, healthy, and easy to follow. Weight-loss programs should help you lose weight and develop healthy eating and lifestyle habits. Our safe and effective weight-loss programs include eating plans that reduce calories, but also incorporate nutritional supplements and medical foods, educational articles, tips and tools to help you read labels and become an educated consumer.
