We’re a month into the New Year, and if you’re struggling with your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight, you’re not alone. Although 42% of Americans try to lose weight each year, the reality is that many people struggle to reach their goals.
Losing weight on your own can be difficult. Many people struggle to keep their New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight because they don't know where to begin; they hit a plateau or lose motivation after seeing a lack of progress.
The good news is that you don’t need to embark on your weight loss journey alone. Board-certified nurse practitioner Yvette Gonzalez and our team at Sage Wellness and Medspa offer customized weight loss solutions that work.
Read on to learn more about medical weight loss programs and how they can help you reach your wellness goals in 2023.
A medical weight loss program is a customized weight loss plan that considers your specific health needs and goals. As an experienced nurse practitioner, Yvette Gonzalez knows firsthand the benefits of maintaining a healthy weight and how underlying conditions can complicate your weight loss progress. By framing an individualized plan, you get the best guidance for your body and your health needs.
Medical weight loss programs include:
Unlike trendy or fad diets, the most important aspect of medical weight loss programs is that they are rooted in evidence-based treatments, lifestyle modifications, and medications. All these are adjusted based on your specific body mass index (BMI), underlying health issues, and overall wellness goals.
Medical weight loss programs work because of three key factors:
Let’s dive deeper into those pillars:
“Dieting” is more than just cutting calories to lose weight. Our medical weight loss programs help identify lifelong habits that improve your overall health while supporting you to lose weight at the same time.
Exercise can promote weight loss by helping you burn more calories than you consume. Exercise can also reduce stress, boost your mood, support healthy immune function, and help reduce your risk of developing several diseases and conditions. Additionally, strength training helps build lean body mass, and the more muscles you build, the better your metabolism functions.
Likewise, by focusing on your nutrition, we look at the foods your body craves. Instead of just cutting calories, our team helps you identify what food you need to add to your diet to support optimal wellness.
Perhaps your friend met her weight loss goals by following a keto diet, while your sibling lost weight by adopting a plant-based diet. Just because one plan worked for a friend doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Our plans work because we focus on YOU.
Weight loss isn’t easy, and obstacles are par for the course. Plateaus can be particularly frustrating. However, when you’re part of our weight loss program, our team is here for you through all your victories and struggles. We can help you navigate the plateaus and identify solutions for issues that arise.
