Dieting can often be confusing, in part because there are so many diets to choose from. Often, individuals go from one diet to the next, temporarily losing weight and then gaining it all back. This cycle is known as dead end dieting. One of the reasons why so many diets fail is because they do not recognize that the body actually has three different types of fat cells. Structural fat is a necessary type of fat that your organs need for support. Normal fat is essentially an energy reserve in your body that you can burn as needed. Adipose tissue, or abnormal fat, is the type of fat that you are trying to lose on a diet.
Much of the time, a dieter will lose water weight or muscle tissue, rather than fat. Or, the diet causes the first two normal types of fat to be used up first, rather than burning through the adipose tissue. This leads to fatigue, hunger, nutrient deficiencies, and frustration.
This is why A New Me Weight Loss is different. Our specially designed program stimulates the loss of adipose tissue first for rapid weight loss without hunger or nutrient deficiencies. If you have any questions about our unique, effective approach to weight loss, call our office in Redondo Beach at (310) 683-2161.

Many dieters struggle to overcome a slow metabolism, which can be the result of many factors. Some lifestyle factors that may contribute to a slow metabolism include regularly skipping meals or fasting. When you skip a meal, your body burns fewer calories to conserve your energy. Weight loss experts often recommend eating very small portions more frequently throughout the day to maintain your metabolism. Another factor that may contribute to a slow metabolism is having excess body fat with declining muscle tissue, since muscle requires more calories than fat tissue. Switching to a low-calorie diet can help burn your reserves of excess fat to boost your metabolism.
Sometimes, an underlying medical condition is the culprit for a slow metabolism. Dieters may wish to consult a doctor to determine if their slow metabolism could be the result of diabetes or an underactive thyroid gland.

It’s common to eat poorly as a result of depression or anxiety. Unfortunately, this not only sabotages your weight loss efforts; it also contributes to your mood problems. If you’re feeling a bit blue, have a snack that will boost the serotonin levels in your brain without packing on the pounds. Carbohydrate-based snacks, such as half of a whole wheat English muffin drizzled with a little honey, will give you a quick mental boost without derailing your diet.
As you’ll learn by watching this video, it’s also a good idea to include foods that are fortified with DHA in your daily diet. This dietitian recommends getting at least 200 mg of DHA each day for long-term mood boosting effects.
A New Me Weight Loss includes healthy supplements in our diet programs, such as L-carnitine to boost your mental focus. Call our Redondo Beach location at (310) 683-2161 or explore our supplement products online.

When you embark on your new weight loss diet, you’ll need to revamp your grocery shopping list. Instead of processed foods that contain refined carbohydrates, fats, and sugars, choose low-calorie foods that will give you the most nutritional bang for your buck. These include vegetables that are rich in antioxidants and lean sources of protein that will help suppress your appetite. Your weight loss consultant may recommend choosing the following foods.
Kale is a dark green leafy vegetable that offers a spectrum of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K. It also contains calcium, which research indicates may help with your weight loss efforts. The nutrients in kale help your body remove toxins and they reduce your risk of cancer. Plus, it weighs in at a mere 36 calories per cup, which means you can easily satisfy your appetite without adding to your waistline. You can add raw kale to salads or sauté it with garlic.
Dieters often find success with low-carbohydrate diets that include sufficient amounts of protein. Salmon is a lean source of protein that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation throughout your body to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease. Salmon can also regulate your blood pressure, lower your cholesterol, and reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, it contains just 160 calories per four ounces.
Legumes such as lentils can help you increase your fiber intake on your weight loss diet. Fiber will help you feel full for a longer period of time, allowing you to eat far fewer calories than you ordinarily would. Consuming lentils may be particularly beneficial for dieting diabetics since they can stabilize blood sugar levels.
A New Me Weight Loss will give you all the guidance you need to be successful on your weight loss program. Our programs are designed to reset the hypothalamus to remove calories from your body’s adipose tissue. Residents of the Redondo Beach area are encouraged to call (310) 683-2161 for more information.

In 2013, a number of health trends were popularized. While some of them are healthy habits that can indeed lead to weight loss, many of them are mere fads based on unscientific principles. Some of 2013’s health trends can even be dangerous for your well-being. It’s always a good idea to enlist the assistance of weight loss experts in your dieting efforts to help you determine which programs will actually work for you.
Best: Pool Workouts
Many dieters have trouble doing cardio workouts because of health problems such as painful joints. Working out in the pool is a gentle method of exercising that’s particularly well-suited to those who are obese. The water takes the weight off your joints. Plus, pool workouts are highly customizable. You could choose to swim laps, play water polo with your friends, or take a Zumba-inspired water fitness class.
Worst: Overly Intense Workouts
In 2013, many dieters tried their hand at overly intense workouts such as CrossFit. When you’re on a restricted-calorie diet, aggressive workouts can actually be detrimental to your weight loss efforts. Working out to the point of exhaustion will only encourage you to binge on carbohydrate-rich foods later. Plus, it’s counterproductive to engage in muscle-building activities on a restricted-calorie diet. Intensive workouts such as CrossFit will only leave you fatigued.
Best: Probiotic Foods
Commercial food products that are fortified with probiotics are becoming increasingly available and popular. Probiotics work by balancing the bad bacteria in your gut with good bacteria, which reduces inflammation, aids in digestion, and boosts your weight loss efforts. Look for probiotic supplements or try a probiotic drink such as kefir.
Worst: Gluten-Free Dieting
Weight loss experts often recommend low-carbohydrate diets; however, following a gluten-free diet when it isn’t medically necessary won’t help you lose weight. Gluten-free foods are not necessarily lower in calories. In fact, many of them are high in fats and sugars.
