Are you ready to make a lifestyle change regarding your weight? Are you at least 20 pounds overweight and long to feel better? If you find yourself huffing and puffing just going up a few stairs, it’s time to take action. Our fast-paced lifestyles have hindered our ability to lose weight easily. There’s no time to cook nutritious meals, and sometimes the funds aren’t available either. Eating healthy whole grains and a plant-derived diet is costly, especially when the price of a double cheeseburger is around $1.00. Many people don’t make their health a priority and the weight just continues to pile on. If you find yourself in this position, you need weight loss intervention from our medical weight loss center.
How can a weight loss center help me?
One of the main reasons that so many people fail with their weight loss is that they don’t have the proper reinforcements. There are several programs that deal with addiction in other areas, and all those members have a sponsor. Likewise, when you sign up for help at a medical weight loss center, you get personalized help that can help you through your difficult journey. You’re not going to give up those cravings for snack cakes and potato chips overnight. You need to reprogram your brain and learn how to eat better. Here, you can talk with people who have already been through the journey or are highly trained in helping those walking through all phases of life.
Does your center encourage weight loss surgery?
Gastric bypass and surgeries of its kind have helped many people to lose weight. Oftentimes, what we see is people that put the weight back on, unfortunately. There are even patients who have had the same weight loss surgery more than once. This is because many patients do not learn to change their eating habits for the better Having surgery is not going to take away the urge for a chocolate bar, nor is it going to make you want to drink water instead of soda. It takes years to build eating habits and they won’t be broken overnight. Our programs teach you how to eat healthy. We encourage you to eat only when you are hungry and not to feed your cravings. You will learn what your body needs as fuel and what you need to avoid. Some foods will give you a burst of energy, but you will feel sluggish a few minutes later. Proper nutrition is the way to fuel the body without the need for a nap later on. Our program is not surgically based. Rather, we give you tools and support to reach your goals.
Why do your programs work?
First, so many patients try to approach weight loss with a one-size-fits-all package. There are no two bodies that are the same and everyone’s caloric needs are different. We take into consideration each person and their current health. Someone who has a heart condition may not be able to eat certain salty foods, whereas someone with an overabundance of iron may have to watch certain vegetable intakes. We analyze your body and its condition. We want to help you succeed, so we give you the tools you need. The greatest thing you can do is learn about weight maintenance. Once you lose weight, it’s a big job to keep it off. So many people feel that once they lose the weight, they can go back to their old eating habits. Actually, maintenance is a bigger job than the initial weight loss. You must change your habits for life.
Are pills a part of your program?
Supplements and prescription medications are often used to help those with serious weight issues achieve their desired results. Thanks to the industry being focused on the obesity epidemic, there are numerous medications that can help curb hunger cravings and burn fat. Too many times the hunger cravings are what allow people to “fall off the diet wagon.” They need help in the beginning to curb their hunger. Once your stomach has shrunk a bit, the hunger cravings won’t be near as bad.
