What is meal planning?

Meal planning involves going to the grocery store and actively selecting natural, healthy ingredients to create meals and dishes. It can have a huge impact on sticking with dietary changes and achieving weight loss.* If you prepare meals for your family, involve your kids in the planning as well. This will help them to get excited about the healthy foods you are cooking, and they will be more willing to try them. At Kitsap Medical Group, we recommend a diet with moderate protein. Cutting out refined carbohydrates is also an essential strategy for weight loss. Refined carbs consist of sugars and starches that don’t exist in nature. Some of the foods that are high in refined carbohydrates include bread, cookies, corn chips, pizza, pastas and chocolate. Meal planning is important, but using the healthiest ingredients is essential.

I highly recommend a visit to Kitsap Medical Weight Loss for help with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight! I am truly impressed with this clinic’s wonderful, caring team, and am so thankful that Kitsap County now has a board certified Bariatric doctor! Dr. Stehouwer is the one to see whether you are a little or a lot overweight. She educates, supports and provides the tools with a diet that can easily be followed with, of course, some patient dedication! It is now my diet for life after losing 10 lbs in the first month, 45 total after appx 7 months. The entire staff is equally excited about each patient’s success, they truly care and as well they “practice what they preach” … the entire team follows the same diet. Dr. Stehouwer cares about you at a personal level. I always appreciate how she takes time to talk with me about how I am feeling and that she cares about me as a whole, not just a person on a diet. She has the knowledge and skill pertaining to weight loss that the Family Practice doctor doesn’t have, and the plan works. Thank you Dr. Stehouwer and Staff, you are great!*
