WEIGHT MANAGEMENT BASICS #9: WHAT IF I GAIN WEIGHT? Sometimes during a Weight Loss Journey a slight detour can happen after a big meal at a celebration like a birthday, anniversary, or wedding. No one eats perfectly but don’t be discouraged when you see that you gained 2 or 3 pounds. Usually, this is water and salt due to an increase in hormones including insulin which causes water and salt to build up in your tissues. Get right back on your program of Protein-Rich Shakes, Balanced Nutrition, and Healthy Active Lifestyle and the extra water weight will come off in just a few days. Some people want to gain weight as muscle and that is also part of Weight Management. The young lady on the slide is typical. She started out at 145 pounds and lost weight to 122 on her program. Then continuing with a Healthy Active Lifestyle including resistance exercise with weights and/or resistance bands, she gained weight to 140 pounds-just 5 pounds below her starting weight. She looks great, because the extra weight is from the muscle she built with exercise. Muscle weighs more than fat per unit volume. You will get your best Personal Shape by continuing your program after you lose weight by adding a Protein-Rich Shake within 30 minutes to one hour after your 30 to 45 minute workout to your meal plan. So Weight Management is about more than just Weight- It’s about getting to your Personal Best Shape !! #drdavidheber #weightlossjourney #shape #muscle #protein #exercise to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com and read PERSONALIZED NUTRITION AND TRANSFORMATION by Heber and Bowerman available on Amazon.com for $5.49
