With 90% of illness and disease today resulting from factors such as lifestyle and stress – not genetics – it’s easy to see why Dr. Peláez considers lifestyle management such an important skill. At Florida Health & Wellness Institute, we want our patients to feel empowered and knowledgeable about how to manage stress, remain active, follow a healthy diet, and more. If you’re looking to create an optimal wellness routine and lose stubborn weight along the way, we’re here to help!

 

Lifestyle Management

Florida Health & Wellness Institute's Lifestyle Management Program is for patients who wish to lose weight and develop lasting healthy lifestyle habits. We provide nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice to ensure you develop a deep understanding of your body, its needs, and how you can best care for those needs. If you're sick of fad dieting and are looking for something with lasting results, look no further. We offer one of the most successful weight loss programs in Pensacola, FL, which home in on three major aspects:

  1. A healthy diet
  2. Regular exercise
  3. Behavioral therapy

When making a conscious effort to combine these three important lifestyle components, things like stress and gaining weight will become far easier to manage.

 

Establishing a Healthy Lifestyle

When you choose Florida Health & Wellness Institute's Lifestyle Management Program, we will assess your current weight, eating habits, calorie intake, and existing medical conditions. This gives us an idea of where your nutrition practices currently lie, how we can better understand your genetics, what foods you like/dislike, and the social aspects of food in your life. Dr. Peláez and his team of nutritionists and registered dietitians will develop a customized and comprehensive plan to help optimize your lifestyle. Like many other forms of functional medicine, we will provide you with the knowledge and tools to create wellness in your life. It will be your job to take advantage of these tools and make your strategy last. Some things we teach our patients to help them with weight loss and general nutrition include:

  • Increase activity level
  • Drink water instead of sugary beverages
  • Read food labels
  • Limit intake of fried or high-fat foods
  • Adopt stress management exercises
  • Watch portion sizes
  • Prioritize self-care
  • Eat enough protein and fiber
  • Eat more leafy greens
  • Eat leaner meats and low-fat dairy products
  • Eat the right number of calories for you

All of these lessons and more are tailored specifically to each patient’s health needs. At Florida Health & Wellness Institute, we don't focus on low-calorie diets and food restrictions as a way to lose weight. We're here to help each person realize how they can benefit from a more intentional lifestyle through nutrition basics, exercise, and stress management. We find that once these aspects can be executed appropriately, things like weight loss become fairly easy.

 

Managing Chronic Illness and Disease

Florida Health & Wellness Institute recognizes that there is no singular approach to dieting. We understand that each patient is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. We want to be your partner in health because we feel a science-based approach to dieting can address the underlying causes of illness and disease. Food is functional medicine! A diet consisting of nutritionally-dense foods is the only kind that can prevent, reverse, and even cure complex diseases. We will help you focus on a nutrition plan that eliminates junk and emphasizes healing foods. This functional approach to lifestyle management is a faster way to fat loss and can work quicker and better than any medication.

 

The Right Diet for Everyone

Utilizing nutritional foods as a form of functional medicine is the diet everyone should be trying. This is not a fad! It’s a way to prevent many of the health problems our society is facing as a whole. Florida Health & Wellness Institute's Lifestyle Management Program is here to remind our patients that they hold the power to live better in every sense. Obtaining the right nutrition plan through Dr. Peláez is a giant step toward understanding your body and making a conscious effort to ward off illness and disease.
