101 Medical Weight Loss Urges Those Trying to Lose Weight to Gear up for Flu Season

Canoga Park (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

101 Medical Weight Loss, the leader in medical weight loss programs in the San Fernando Valley, realize that the people who are in the best shape, are the ones who rarely get sick. In order to achieve weight loss goals, the medical weight loss experts offer tips and advice to get through flu season -starting with the flu vaccine, now available at its weight loss centers.

“We realize the importance of a healthy immune system when it comes to weight loss,” says Dr. Aazami. “That’s why we are offering the flu vaccine at our clinic.”

Flu season is here, and anyone wanting to lose weight should make it a priority to get vaccinated. 101 Medical Weight Loss is now offering the flu vaccine. According to 101 Medical Weight Loss, packing on extra pounds may compromise your immune system. For those looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy immune system, it’s time to stock your pantry and gear up for flu season.

The following tips will help boost your immune system:

Wash your hands. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand washing reduces the common cold and other respiratory viruses by 21 percent. Use soap and warm water and scrub the backs of your hands, palms, fingers, and under your nails. To get an idea of how long this process should last, sing happy birthday twice in your head (or out loud if you’re feeling really brave).

Get Vaccinated. I can’t stress this one enough. The CDC recommends everyone at least 6 months of age be vaccinated. People who are morbidly obese, have metabolic disorders, diabetes, or heart disease are at increased risk for complications from the flu, so it’s particularly important these individuals get vaccinated.

Eat a diet high in zinc. Zinc is an essential nutrient that helps your immune cells function. Oysters and other shellfish, lean dark meat, and nuts are excellent sources of zinc. Hit the grocery store to stock up today!

Sleep. Not only is sleep connected to weight gain, but it’s also weakens your immune system. Try to get seven to eight hours of sleep per night to feel your best during the day and keep your immune system strong.
