Whatever your occupation or parental status may be, figuring out how to make up your mind to lose weight can definitely be a challenge!

Let’s face it, between “losing” your car keys that are still in your hand to forgetting you signed up to volunteer at your child’s school dance, whatever the case, it’s safe to say that life can come at you fast and sometimes it seems like there just isn’t enough time in the day.

With so much going on in your life how can you make time to create and maintain an effective weight loss routine?
Luckily, there are a few dietary and non surgical options you can consider to help you jumpstart your decision making process.

For starters, ask yourself what your current lifestyle and daily routine can handle?

Would it be easier for you to begin with a change in your diet and create a meal plan?

Do you have enough free time to hit the gym with a trainer after work?

Or would it be easier for you to schedule a consultation with a professional for a non surgical fat freezing procedure such as coolsculpting?

Whatever your busy life can handle is completely up to you and if all goes well or you think you can manage multiple options at once, go for it!

After all, it’s much easier to start the journey once you have an idea of which direction you’re going in.
So where do you begin? Let’s take a look at 3 of the most popular weight loss methods.


Coolsculpting, also known as cryolipolysis is a non surgical procedure used to minimize the number of fat cells by freezing. As the fat cells are eliminated they are naturally removed from the body by the liver. Coolsculpting became a global sensation in 2010 and was recently approved by the FDA in 2012.

Although the number of clinical studies is relatively small, Zeltiq Aesthetics claims CoolSculpting lowers body fat of the treated area by 20 percent.

So how do you know if you’re a good candidate for Coolsculpting?

If you have any stubborn body fat that resists your efforts of diet and exercise, Coolsculpting is perfect for you!

Patients that undergo the Coolsculpting procedure use it as a weight loss supplement and not as a weight loss tool. As previously mentioned, individuals who are relatively close to their weight loss goal and having trouble with resistant body fat are ideal candidates for this procedure. Coolsculpting is not a substitute for exercise or an unhealthy diet.

CoolSculpting takes approximately one hour to treat one area and most patients feel little to no discomfort during their session. This discomfort is usually felt when the applicator is first introduced to the skin. A slight sensation occurs until coolness numbs the area.

Women and men of all shapes and sizes can experience the amazing results of CoolSculpting. For this reason everyone’s results will be different as a person’s overall healthy also has a huge impact on results. Patients treating a small area of resistant fat may only need one session. One session can give you 20%-25% reduction in fat. Whereas some patients may have several areas of resistant fat and will need multiple sessions.

Ultimately the choice is yours.
If this is a fat freezing procedure you believe you’re an excellent candidate for, make sure you contact your local professionals and schedule a CoolSculpting consultation today!

Meal Prep

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Abs are made in the kitchen?”

Athletes, trainers and health professionals(and myself) will be the first to tell you that your diet plays a huge role on your weight loss journey.

Organic meals are making a rise in popularity as men and women strive to become more disciplined in their diets by meal prepping. Meal prepping is term used by individuals who pre plan and cook their meals for a select amount of time.

For example: As a former professional track and field athlete I was given a list of meal choices by my coach for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would choose a day, typically Sunday to cook my lunch and dinner for the week. Thus, making it easier to come home in between workouts for lunch without having to figure out what to eat or making a trip to the nearest McDonald’s.
In the long wrong meal prepping helps save you time, money and keeps you disciplined while working out!

Although meal prepping is a key to your weight loss success, the kinds of foods you eat is just as important. After all, meal prepping fries and other greasy foods is pretty much pointless.

If you’re new to meal prepping, Organic meal delivery is making your life and losing weight easier by providing you with tasty and healthy chef cooked recipes delivered to your door. That’s right, healthy foods that are low in trans fat, sodium and hydrogenated oils delivered to your door twice a week.


Exercise is one of the most common ways to achieve weight loss. If your schedule permits you may find great use of a gym membership and even a personal trainer.
Personal trainers can be quite costly so if you have a relative or friend who is also striving to lose weight, the two of you or even a group of you could push each other through workouts.

There are quite a few options for exercise:

  • Cycling
  • Running
  • Kickboxing
  • Swimming

When it comes weight loss, cardio is just as important as your diet. They both work together but the key is to find a exercise/routine that works for you.
Nowadays most gyms have a list of classes to choose from such as swimming, cycling and even yoga(stretching those muscles are critical too).

Visit your local gym to speak with a trainer about your personal fitness goals and be sure to ask to see their list of weekly classes as well!

Now you have an idea of what steps you can take to begin your weight loss journey. Take your time and figure out which option is best for you and your daily life. The important thing to remember is that it can be done!
All you have to do is start.
