Understanding Weight Management
Many people can lose weight but have trouble maintaining that weight loss over time. It’s common to adopt a new diet for a few months but then get too busy to stick with the program and fall into old habits.
Others go on an exercise spree, incorporating daily walks, runs, or fitness classes into their schedules, only to lose interest and quickly regain their lost weight.
For more effective weight loss, you need a holistic program that helps you adopt long-term habits. With holistic weight management, you lose pounds steadily until you reach your desired weight. Then, you’ll follow a regular maintenance program that allows you to keep your healthy new figure for years to come.
Steps in the Weight Management Program
Most people know when they’re overweight. They may adopt a short-term program and meet a few goals, but they quickly drop out when it becomes too much to keep up with.
Proper weight management involves identifying why you’re overweight and taking action to address the underlying issues. If you’re ready to make long-term weight loss a reality, it’s time to seek medical help from a trusted anti-obesity expert.
At our weight management clinic, our experts are ready to design a comprehensive program to meet your needs. Here’s what to expect:
A Holistic Consultation
We begin the weight management process by meeting with you to understand your needs. We’ll assess your current weight and desired results while discussing your eating and exercise habits. We also run laboratory tests to help us determine whether your body is acting against you in your anti-obesity efforts.
You can prepare for your consultation by taking an honest look at your habits. Note the frequency and type of exercise you perform. You should also write down what you eat in a typical week. Keeping a food diary in the weeks leading up to your weight management consultation can be especially beneficial.
We’ll ask you about any medical conditions you have, as well as any prescriptions you’re taking. Bring copies of any medical records you’d like to share with us.
A Customized Treatment Plan
Once we fully understand your challenges in combating obesity or maintaining a healthy weight, we’ll provide you with a customized treatment plan. This plan will be designed especially with you in mind. We’ll consider how much time you can devote to your weight management efforts through exercise and which foods you prefer to eat.
If problems with your metabolism or other issues prevent you from reaching your goal weight, we’ll recommend specific strategies to overcome them.
Once you have a treatment plan to help you with your weight management goals, we’ll perform regular assessments to check in on your success. If you find that you have difficulties adhering to the plan, we can make adjustments to it to fit your needs.
Components of a Weight Management Plan
There are a variety of different components that we may include in your plan, such as the following:
Peptide therapy is a relatively new treatment that focuses on improving communication between peptides and amino acids in the body. With this therapy, peptides can cause your body to release certain hormones that can assist in your weight-loss efforts.
Many people who use this therapy find it much easier to lose weight and maintain their goals, as peptides improve the functionality of their body chemistry.
Prescription medication can boost metabolism and help you reach your goal weight. A variety of medicines on the market today can help reduce your appetite, stop your body from absorbing excess dietary fats, and speed up your metabolism.
If prescription medications are an option, we’ll discuss their potential effects and how to best include them in your weight management plan.
You’ve likely heard of detox diets and may have undertaken one or two yourself. While detox diets often get a bad reputation as fad diets, they can be a great stepping stone for reaching your goal weight.
Detox diets effectively remove toxins and other harmful substances in the bloodstream that can adversely impact your ability to lose weight. They can also provide an early win — quick weight loss that helps motivate you to stick with your long-term diet.
Many people find that a detox diet can speed up their weight-loss efforts while providing additional benefits like better focus, better concentration, and an overall feeling of improved health.
Dietary and Fitness Evaluation
Sometimes, an objective opinion can provide insights into bad dietary or fitness habits you weren’t even aware of. Our weight management professionals can identify where you’re making diet mistakes that can unintentionally increase your calorie intake or provide an unfavorable balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
We also develop an exercise plan tailored to your current fitness level. We understand that not everyone is suited for high-impact activities like long-distance running and CrossFit. We’ll find a solution that gets your body moving in a way you enjoy.
