The Integrative Doc, Dr. Jameelah Gater, Launches FitFor14 Health & Wellness Campaign

Dr.Gater copyLake Oconee Urgent & Specialty Care Center’s very own, Dr. Gater, has a passion to help others live their best life. Spring boarding off this premise, Dr. Gater has launched her FitFor14 health and wellness campaign to help others stay on tract with those New Year’s resolutions. The goal of the campaign is to inspire, motivate, and educate people to help them reach their health and wellness goals. As an Integrative Medicine and Family Physician, Dr. Gater has a wealth of experience working with patients to help them lose weight, reduce medications, and lead healthier lives through both traditional and evidence based alternative therapies. “Making small, sustainable changes is the key. If it feels like a second job or a huge sacrifice then it’s not likely a change that will stick,” says Dr. Gater

Last year, Dr. Gater conducted an 8-week “Biggest Loser” program with the local community. It was a huge success with all attendees making lifestyle changes and many reaching their weight loss goals.  Dr. Gater was extremely pleased with the results saying, “Our ‘Biggest Loser’ lost 28 pounds during the 8 week challenge and I am proud to say, she has kept the weight off!”

For 2014, Dr. Gater wanted to expand her program for a broader outreach. “Social media has expanded exponentially in the past couple of years with Facebook, Twitter, and now Instagram. I wanted to be able to use these mediums for daily inspiration, healthy lifestyle education, and to share my recipes, meal plans and weight loss tips. It’s an amazing avenue to reach out and communicate with the masses in a time and space that’s convenient for everyone,” Dr. Gater shared. FitFor14 will indeed do all of this and more! Tips about how to boost your metabolism, eat healthy, exercise, and reach your health goals, along with Dr. Gater’s great tasting healthy version recipes of some favorites such as fried chicken. In addition, Dr. Gater will be sharing her top weight loss tips and answering your health related questions.  The New Year is the perfect time to introduce this program, as people are more health conscious now than ever before.
