News from a Weight-Loss Clinic Near Me

My neighbor went to a weight-loss clinic near me. She drank a gross concoction everyday for a couple months and lost a lot of pounds. What happened next is no surprise. When the weight-loss program was over, and she could eat normally again, all the weight came back.

Weight-loss programs: New ones seem to crop up every week. American culture insists that we all get small and sleek and thin. Fad diets and fat-burning remedies abound.

At the same time, media (social and otherwise) taunts us with cheap, easy, sugar-filled fast food and candy at every turn. It’s a set up for failure we rarely question or abandon.

But even when you’re cynical about the diet industry, you still want to feel good in your body. You want to feel healthy. And if it turns out that you need to lose weight to do so, how do you know what program, advice, or tips will work? And last?
