Dr. Murphy listens to what's wrong and helps find the best solution for his patients!! Great place. Great doctors.
Dr. Murphy is the BEST! If you are looking for Weight Management, look no further than Brian. Laid back vibes, with NO judgment ever. Stop wishing for a healthy weight, and call for your appointment today. You won't regret it.
Can't say enough about Dr. Murphy and his team. You never feel rushed through your appointments and they are always friendly. Plus I appreciate how I get right in at my appointment time. Many of my friends and family members are patients of his in Joplin.
I have only been going for a month, but love the Doc and the receptionist; both are down-to-earth and respectful. The atmosphere is great. Great talks with the Doc! I have lost 9 lbs and 3 inches. In a month. That's pretty good for this 57 yr old! Plus, someone there drives my favorite car: a vintage Pontiac TransAm...oh yeah!! Can't get better than this! Can't wait to see what I lose my next 30 days.
If you start this program (it's very simple, but disciplined) and follow the Doc's simple rule, you too will see fast results. It took a week for me to adjust and, once I did, the pedal is to the metal and I feel great! I cannot wait for my next appointment!
There are a lot of misconceptions floating around whenever it comes to weight loss. A great portion of the accepted beliefs have no foundation and are simply myths.
Here a few facts and tips to help set the record straight!
Walking is not exercise. Think of exercise as a physical activity where you can’t carry on a conversation because you have to breathe.
We always overestimate the amount of calories burned during a day and underestimate the number of calories in food.
It does not matter where the calories come from — carbs, protein or fat. Total calories are taken in vs. total calories burned determine your weight at the end of the day.
Just because it is healthy does not mean it is not fattening.
Take dried fruit, for example. Dried fruit has five to eight times more calories than the same weight of fresh fruit because it is denser.
Start walking fast, everywhere.
Moving a mass through space faster takes more energy, or calories.
Lifestyle changes are the only way to ensure that you will lose the weight and keep it off.
Drinking 15oz of crushed ice water will burn 40 calories.
Remember, normal activities, like drinking crushed ice water, burn calories!
A person’s normal weight can fluctuate by 5 to 10 pounds a day!
Drink everything with crushed ice: it lowers the temperature of the fluid so your body has to burn more calories to heat it up.
We are here to confidentially assist our clients in preventing and correcting medical conditions that adversely affect their quality of life. We accomplish this through lifestyle changes, education, and medical prevention tailored to each client.
