A Second Chance

Not wanting to follow down the same path, Melanie decided she needed to find a solution - one that would actually work! As luck would have it, multiple colleagues in her office were patients of Dr. Ayoola and she’d personally witnessed them transform their lives through weight loss surgery. “I saw how much better their lives were after surgery and they raved about how wonderful Dr. A was!” Well, that was enough for Melanie. She decided to book a consultation with him and she’s never looked back. Melanie says “From that day of my first consultation, I knew I could trust him with my life.” Learn More

Are You Sabotaging Your Own Weight Loss Success?

One of the most common forms of self-sabotage is self-defeating, negative self-talk. Being quick to criticize yourself reinforces negativity and leads to even more self-sabotage and becomes a difficult cycle to break. We like to tell our patients that weight loss is NOT about perfection, it’s about commitment. You’re going to have those days when you don’t eat well. There will be days when the mere thought of exercise makes you shut down. But that’s ok. That’s expected. That’s normal. It’s when you let that momentary slip up fester into negative thoughts of “I just can’t do this” or “I’m a failure”. This is when it becomes sabotage. Learn More

What Do I Eat? How Do I Eat? We Answer Your Questions

Here is a list of the top three questions our Weight Loss Specialists of North Texas registered dietitians get: 1.What’s the best thing I can eat? You need to learn to love fruits AND vegetables. Lots of them in all varieties. Because they are low in calories, high in fiber and packed with nutrients, they really are essential for a healthy life. 2.What’s the worst thing I can eat? Ah, the sweet taste of sugar! Except its effects on nutrition are anything but sweet. Added sugars and their high calories cause weight gain and also increase the risk for heart disease and diabetes. If that’s not enough, it also saps your energy and is horrible for your dental health. 3.Have you heard about the diet/eating plan? What do you think of it? Should I try Flexitarian? Maybe Paleo or Keto? Intermittent fasting sounds like a winner! If it’s a diet plan, then yes, we’ve heard about it. And while these plans can produce great results for some, everyone has different needs and goals. Our recommendation? A comprehensive consultation with a registered dietitian is the best and safest way to find the eating plan that’s right for you. It will take into account any underlying conditions you may have, while fitting with your lifestyle, goals and even the types of foods you like to eat. Learn More
