Many people don’t know about the related benefits of chiropractic care to weight loss and weight management

In addition to being a chef, Dr. Gray advises patients on developing creative food choice plans to help with pain and weight management, all with the goal of living a healthy and complete life. If you want support with your goals to lose weight and become more satisfied with your lifestyle, please ask Dr. Gray. He looks forward to helping you.
Food As A Tool For Healing
Choices you make about what you eat and drink are important. You need to do the healthy living math and ensure that what you put into your body adds up to a balanced, nutritious diet. Your activity level, gender, age, and health conditions all impact your daily caloric needs.
Identifying the best foods to eat seems to change on a regular basis. The food pyramid isn’t what it once was. Food fads come and go. What was new and “healthy” yesterday is being rejected and disproven today. However, if you stick to the basics, you’ll establish a foundation of eating well that has remained timeless, regardless of your preferred cuisine.
Always build a regular diet around:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Lean protein foods
- Less added sugar
- No trans fat
- Managed portion sizes
While your age is unchangeable, chiropractic treatment is a proven way to help reduce barriers to your ability to be and remain active.
