MURRAY, Utah, Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Losing weight and saving money: two of the most popular New Year's resolutions that can also be the toughest to stick with beyond mid-January. To help make achieving those goals a bit easier, Creative Bioscience, a leading maker of dietary supplements and support products, is offering a few tips that can actually help you do both, at the same time.
"The New Year is all about new beginnings. Whether that means striving for better health and wellness, or saving more for the future, the New Year offers a chance at a fresh start," said Ike Blackmon, Executive Director at Creative Bioscience. "Losing weight can actually help you do both -- you'd be surprised at how many people tell us that losing weight has saved them a ton of money. Since they're not eating out as much, especially fast food, and they're cutting back on snacks and junk like soda and energy drinks, they have more money to spend on things they really love -- or to save, whichever suits their style."
Choose Your Plan Wisely
When it comes to both losing weight and saving money, it's important to find a plan that fits both your goals and your lifestyle. For those who want to shed just a few pounds -- to get in shape for a big event or a vacation, for example -- Blackmon suggests a short-term "day diet" program, like Creative Bioscience's 10, 20, or 30 Day Diet™ program. Designed for rapid weight loss of up to one pound per day, the Day Diet™ program offers potent nutraceutical ingredients that can provide the supplemental support dieters need to overcome hunger and fatigue.
For those looking to lose substantial weight -- 40 pounds or more -- Blackmon says the hCG1234™ diet protocol may be the best option. "hCG is for serious dieters who are ready to make a real commitment to weight loss," he said. "It's also perfect for anyone with limited mobility due to obesity, arthritis or other ailments because you don't have to exercise to see dramatic results. Now, that doesn't mean you can just take the drops and keep eating chocolates by the bagful -- you've got to follow the recommended meal plan. But, if you're ready to see dynamic weight loss, with results comparable to liposuction, hCG is a much less expensive way to get there, and without the downtime and surgical recovery."
Blackmon says the same planning must go into meeting your New Year's financial goals, and it must be easy to integrate that plan into your daily life. "Without a plan in place to serve as a guide that makes sense for you, you'll never make it," he said. "The plan will give you a solid foundation when temptation arises, whether it's in the form of a decadent dessert or yet another pair of shoes that you don't really need. If sticking to the plan is too difficult, it's easy to go off track."
Once you've got a plan, it's important to assemble the supplies you'll need before you get started. For weight loss, a trip to the grocery store for healthy foods seems obvious, but there are other tools that you'll want to have on hand, such as food scale for accurate portion control, a tape measure and a diet scale to evaluate your progress. "It's the same as setting a budget and tracking your expenses to stick to your financial plan," Blackmon said. "If you don't keep track of your progress, how will you know when you've reached your goal?"
Creative Bioscience makes it easy to document your starting weight and track your weight loss progress with free charts included in the instruction book for every supplement product.
Your weight and your bank balance are perhaps the two most closely guarded secrets most of us keep, so it might seem awkward at first to talk about these sensitive topics with total strangers. However, finding a strong support system is critical to helping you overcome obstacles along the way. In addition to in-person support groups, online social media communities can provide the collective wisdom and experience to help give you the extra encouragement you need, especially at difficult times. And, while weight loss groups have been around for some time, today there are even whole clubs and online communities dedicated to dieting, couponing and frugal living.
"It's a powerful thing to know there are others out there who have been through the same struggles you have, and they're willing to help," Blackmon said. "Whether you need advice on resisting temptation, a sympathetic ear to vent your frustrations, or a place where you can share your milestones with others who will celebrate with you, support groups can be a very powerful tool."
On the Creative Bioscience Facebook page, some 50,000 fans offer encouragement and share advice, recipes and product recommendations, aimed at helping fellow dieters meet their goals. In addition, every Creative Bioscience customer has free, direct access to the company's trained diet support specialists available 24/7 who can offer tips and encouragement to help keep dieters on track.
"It's also important to remember that regardless of your New Year's goals, it's going to take time and commitment to get where you want to be," Blackmon said. "Whether it's losing weight or saving money, you probably didn't get into this situation overnight, and you won't get out of it that quickly either. If there were a magic pill, believe me, we'd have it. Until then, we'll continue putting together realistic, scientific solutions that can help people change their eating behavior and live an overall healthier lifestyle one day at a time."
