BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Dr. Melina Jampolis, also known simply as Dr. Melina, is a board certified nutritional doctor that specializes in the weight loss and disease prevention of her patients. She has written several New York Times Bestselling books, like the No Time to Lose Diet, that entails how people can lose weight even when they don’t believe they have the time. She has been selected as the new expert of fitness for CNNHealth.com and also serves as the chief medical officer of a women’s health and fitness site called Smartnow.

For those looking for a more personalized approach, Dr. Melina offers specialized services to help you lose weight in the healthiest way possible. She doesn’t help you lose weight by giving you pills or shakes. Instead, Dr. Melina offers a full nutritional and health consultation for anyone who is interested.

You can go with the consultation only option, which can be done in person if you are in the San Francisco area, or virtually if you are not. With the consultation only, you are given a complete recommendation of what type of diet, supplements and even exercises you should be doing to reach your goals.

Another option given by Dr. Melina is the complete weight loss program. This option creates a complete program specialized for you to reach your weight loss goals. With the complete weight loss program, you also visit the office anywhere from four to 20 times or more.

DIET and NUTRITION

Dr. Melina’s plans give you an analysis of what type of diet and nutrition plan you should be following. The focus is on helping you lose weight and get healthy, so diet and nutrition are key components.

Dr. Melina differs from adhering to the government's food guide pyramid. She advocates for eating less starch-based carbohydrates than the government recommends. Overall, she teaches the value of moderation and planning when it comes to nutrition and diet. Recognizing that most individuals lead very busy lives, she encourages all of her clients to have healthy snacks on hand and to enter each day with a plan of how you are going to eat. For instance, if you have a business dinner, you will make a commitment to eating a light lunch or if you're going to be stuck in the car all day running errands, you want to pack healthy snacks like a protein bar to avoid the temptation of getting a quick caloric meal at the drive-thru.

In order to assist you in your quest to eat healthy and conveniently, Dr. Melina has developed her own line of protein bars that can be ordered online. Each of the four different flavors have 180 calories, 14 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.

EXERCISE

In the services that Dr. Melina offers, an exercise plan is included. Dr. Melina stresses that exercise is an important part of losing weight and getting healthy and must be an integral part of any healthy lifestyle plan.

She encourages those who are overweight and obese to first add cardiovascular exercise to their daily routine. As the person progresses in their fitness level and weight loss, a resistance training program should then be added. She also emphasizes the importance of mixing up fitness routine in order to avoid boredom and to keep your body constantly challenged.

CONCLUSION

If you are looking for a plan that can be catered specifically to meet your needs of weight loss, Dr. Melina can create that program for you whether you decide to purchase some of her nutrition bars, have her design a customized weight loss plan or simply do the consultation. No matter what you decide, she has several resources available to help you meet your goals.
