Mindful Nutrition and Lifestyle Practices

Vegetables - Zen Dermatology in Sacramento CA

Our day-to-day meals and snacks are sometimes pre-planned and nutrient balanced. Other times, they can be on-the-go or sporadic. Nevertheless, when we digest and absorb our food choices, they enter our bloodstream and over time, affect numerous metabolic pathways to either promote health or increase the risk of disease. In addition, our dietary habits can influence how we look and feel. 

From the inside out, it is best to focus on anti-inflammatory foods and spices (dark leafy greens, turmeric, olive oil), low-glycemic index foods (quinoa, apples, chickpeas, almonds), high-fiber intake from different colorful vegetables, and sufficient protein intake. 

From the outside in, we can engage in various forms of physical activity to positively influence metabolic pathways, increase strength, and to also enhance the way we look and feel. 

Nutrition and lifestyle can be seen as the foundations of healthy living and as the most important components of what determines our physique. When these pillars of health are in check, they can be complemented by innovative procedures like CoolSculpting. 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical solution and one of the most popular treatments to reduce stubborn fat pockets that diet and exercise don’t seem to improve. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment but combined with our nutrition counseling, you are sure to see optimal results!
