Figuring out the correct amounts of vegetables, meats, and fruits, for a healthy diet is nearly impossible. Although it has become a bit easier patients should be aware that diet is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. Genetics and aging can also be responsible for increased weight. Patients who are around 30 years of age and older often tell Dr. O’Toole that they have increased pockets of fat on their bodies even though they weigh about the same as they always have. Dr. O’Toole explains that this is largely due to a hormonal shift and a decreased metabolism. Dr. O’Toole offers both traditional liposuction as well as SmartLipo as an excellent option for removing these fat deposits. Of course, eating a balanced diet is necessary to maintain the results. Easier to understand guidelines will help. According to CBS, The United States Department of Agriculture has now introduced, along with First Lady Michelle Obama, a less confusing and easier to follow daily food guide.
