Making a few simple lifestyle changes can result to an effective weight loss strategy. The key is to maintain our focus and keep up with perseverance, stick to the plan and devote a certain degree of effort to shed off the extra fat consistently.
The part 3 of our Quick Management Tips Series give focus to one of the things we probably pay “less blame” to weight gain but our behaviour here is reflective of our total fitness.
At the Grocery
Do not shop when hungry or tired.
Shop from a list and avoid buying anything that is not on the list.
If you must have tempting food, buy individual-sized packages and try to find a lower-calorie alternative.
Don’t taste test in the store.
Read food labels; compare products to help you make the healthiest choices.
Attending Social Events
Do not arrive hungry. Eat something light before the event’s meal.
Try to fill up on low-calorie food such as vegetables and fruits.
Eat smaller portions of the high-calorie food.
Eat what you like but choose small shares.
If you want seconds, wait at least 20 minutes after you have eaten to see if you are actually hungry or if you eyes are bigger than your stomach.
Limit alcoholic beverages. Try a soda water with a twist of lime.
Do not skip other meals in the day to save room for the special planned meals.
As you cultivate the discipline to weight management and nutrition, it is ideal to accompany the effort with laser treatment and fitness. Laserfit is a holistic approach to weight loss and body contouring with a combination of non-surgical full body cold laser exposure to melt fat, 10 minute interval training workout to burn fats, and proper nutritional recommendations. The procedure makes you shed weight with no interruptions from surgery, pain, wounds, or garments.
To achieve the best weight goal, several factors have to work together from proper attitude to the best technology.

The complete meals suggested in this guide help losing weight as soon as the first day without the disadvantage of a too strict diet program.

The sachets and snacks are also varied and tasty to avoid feeling too restricted and also to limit a monotony during the week.

Dr. Claudine Roura attended the 4th Condensed Fat Grafting and Cell-Assisted Surgical Forum held at Bangkok,Thailand from April 18 to 20, 2014 with speakers headed by Dr. Sydney Coleman. Dr. Coleman is a world-renown Plastic Surgeon and Innovator of LipoStructure.
FATS Conference is a gathering of the world’s best fat grafting and stem cell experts. The event presented an amazing agenda complete with live and videotaped procedures; lectures on seven fat grafting and regenerative topics; detailed explanations of the science and clinical realities of stems cells and fat grafting.
“I've learned so much in this meeting; such a refinement of my craft,” Dr. Roura affirmed.
Dr. Claudine Roura, MD, is a no-nonsense and non-commercialized beauty doctor in the country. The managing director of Contours Advanced Face and Body Sculpting Institute and Zerona Laser Slimming and Aesthetics, defies the usual celebrity-endorser strategy to popularize her clinics. Instead, she relies on the power of word-of mouth endorsements and the Internet’s massive reach.
Dr. Roura said her one and only guiding principle in the performance of her job is, “Never promise what you cannot deliver.” As her personal commitment to clients, she is emphatic about her being no-nonsense in her service and pledges to assure satisfaction. “Unlike others, I only promise what I can deliver, probably more but nothing less. I will remain true about my service to my clients, not oversell just to make a quick buck,” she said during an interview with this writer.
Dr. Roura who earned a medical degree from the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, is a certified dermatologist and Fellow of the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) as well as the Philippine Academy of Cutaneous Surgery (Pacas). She also holds the distinction of being the first and only Filipina cosmetic surgeon to practice Vaser High-Definition Lipo-Sculpture in the country.
Being totally different from the rest of celebrity-powered competition was not an option because, according to her, “We are not being endorsed by major artista [actors and actresses]. We have no fancy gimmicks. We deal more with real clients who want real results.” Her immense enthusiasm in the art of body sculpture and her thirst for further knowledge about it continue to push Dr. Roura into trying to discover newer technologies and undergo even more extensive training here and abroad to keep her abreast with the many meticulous aspects of dermatologic and cosmetic surgery.
Locally, Dr. Roura’s training included one on cosmetic surgery under distinguished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raul Guanzon, a fellow of the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery. She also underwent further training in dermatologic surgery under a training program of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery with Dr. Sorin Eremia in Riverside, California. Having a keen interest in phlebology, Dr. Roura was awarded the 2005 Walter de Groot Phlebology Fellowship. She finished her fellowship under renowned dermatologic surgeon and phlebologist Dr. Robert Weiss at the Maryland Laser, Skin and Vein Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, in October 2005.
“We melt it, you burn it!” has easily become the mantra at all Contours clinics nationwide as Dr. Roura introduced the company’s latest offering, the LaserFit. That mantra is fast becoming the craze thing among more and more health buffs, body-conscious and even overweight individuals. And why not? ‘Melting’ unwanted fats has never been this easier and cheaper! Laserfit is a holistic approach to weight loss and body contouring. This is a combination of non-invasive full body cold laser exposure to melt fat, 10-minute power circuit workouts to burn fat and proper nutritional recommendations.
“Cold laser (Zerona) exposure releases fats from the body for three days. Daily 10 minutes workouts are recommended to burn fatr, trim down and lose weight,” Dr. Roura explains saying the patient will begin to see improvement after the second session with his or her clothes getting loose.
Dr. Roura’s clinics have the regular menu of services for face and body enhancement. What apparently makes her practice stand out from the rest is her mastery of the art of body contouring. Her clientele, which includes foreigners, want to look “perfectly contoured.”
Dr. Roura opened her first clinic in November 2008 after a short stint at Las Piñas Hospital in Metro Manila. Today, Contours Advanced Face & Body Sculpturing Institute is now recognized in the field of dermatologic surgery.
