Philadelphia Diet Doctor & Weight Loss Clinic Owner Says: "Losing Weight With Friends Is Always Easier Than Going At It Alone." E-mail
Wednesday, 07 August 2013


Dr. Jon Fisher, Philadelphia Diet Doctor and Weight Loss Clinic Owner Recommends: "When Trying To Lose Weight, Don't Go At It Alone."

Sometimes dieting can seem almost as impossible as moving the Rock of Gibraltar. You struggle and fight, exercise and sweat, but even the most dedicated people find it hard to stick to a diet and exercise schedule, especially if they're trying to go at it alone. That's where the help of others can be invaluable in your efforts to lose weight.

You see, there comes a time when you have to realize that asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Getting help from friends, family or a Philadelphia weight loss clinic that has a good weight loss support group and online tools so you can communicate with others when you feel like throwing in the towel, can help you overcome setbacks that can derail your weight loss efforts. That's why Dr. Jon Fisher, the Philadelphia Diet Doctor, recommends losing weight with friends, family or a medically directed support group as it is a lot easier than going at it alone.

If you'd like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jon Fisher call his Philadelphia Weight Loss Clinic on City Line Ave., Tabor Ave. or one of his other Philadelphia based Weight Loss Clinics and HCG Diet Centers in South Philly or Feasterville, at (215) 987-4592 or contact Body By Fisher Now online today.

Here's How Losing Weight With Friends and Others Can Make Weight Loss Easier.

1. Get an Exercise Buddy - Making a commitment to help support a friend's weight loss efforts will help you stick to yours as well (not to mention losing weight with a friend can be a fun and healthy way to socialize). Now if you think you don't know anyone you can exercise with, think again. Look through your phone right now and I'm sure you will find many close friends you can call upon to aid in your efforts, some of which may also be looking to lose weight with a friend. If they live too far, here's a novel idea: Why not arrange to "meet on the phone" for a walk and talk exercise session? The only difference is you and your exercise buddy will be walking in different locations while talking to each other on the phone. For instance, your friend could be walking in South Philly and you can be walking in Feasterville yet you're still exercising together. By keeping each other company, you can help each other lose weight while creating a new bond that will last a lifetime.

2. Get Your Family Involved - Husbands, wives, children and siblings can offer support in unexpected ways. Something as simple as a sincere compliment at the right time can be all you need to push you forward. Just be mindful that compliments or kind gestures in the form of "treats"  can indirectly sabotage your diet efforts. For instance, if your husband brings you a bowl of ice cream as a reward for sticking to your diet, he probably doesn't think he's doing anything wrong but as the saying goes, "once on the lips is a lifetime on the hips." A simple way around this is to let him know that you appreciate the offer but would much rather a hug than ice cream.

3. Find a Philadelphia Weight Loss Clinic That Offers a Ongoing Support - There's a lot to be said for seeking out the support of others who are fighting the same battle you are. Whether it's a support group in the form of an online weight loss forum, small group counseling sessions or face to face office visits with a doctor or nurse, you can find motivation if you are part of a group. Healthy competition, companionship, encouragement, applause and practical, common sense advice from others who are also fighting to take off pounds can all make reforming your eating habits considerably easier.

If you are looking for a reputable Philadelphia Weight Loss Clinic that also offers the tools and support to help you reach your weight loss goals, call Dr. Fisher, the Philadelphia Diet Doctor, at (215) 987-4592 to schedule an appointment today.
