Why can’t I lose weight?
Weight loss is challenging. You may move more and eat less and still not see the number on the scale budge. That’s because your body is doing the job it’s designed to do. When you reduce the calories you consume, your body fights back, releasing hormones that make you even hungrier. It also reduces your metabolism, which is the opposite of what you need when trying to lose weight.
Diet and exercise are the main factors in commercial weight loss plans. Other factors also play a role in weight loss. Your culture, genetics, and medical history also dictate your ability to lose those extra pounds.
You need protein to lose weight. Getting enough protein in your diet reduces cravings and prevents snacking. Protein works well in your weight loss plan because it affects appetite-regulating hormones.
Avoiding sugary beverages is an excellent way to lose weight. People often consume a significant amount of calories from them. Even drinks that are supposedly healthy and helpful for weight loss are loaded with sugar. It’s not only soda and beer, but fruit juices and sports drinks are also problematic. Stick to eating whole foods to lose weight, like apples or bananas. Drinking sugary beverages could cause a weight-loss stall.
Aesthetic Lab’s medical weight loss management considers all these factors, designing individualized plans to encourage healthy, long-term weight loss.
How can you help me lose weight?
Individualized attention and care are key to managing weight. Your provider gets to know you to create a targeted action plan. You may have a nutritional deficiency or slow metabolism. A vitamin injection can treat both issues.
If you need a mood or energy boost, intravenous (IV) infusions also replenish nutrient deficiencies and improve metabolism. We’ll work one-on-one with you, and your customized plan might include:
- A personalized diet plan
- Lifestyle counseling
- A unique exercise program to match your fitness level
- Nutritional supplements
- Advice to reduce and manage stress
You’ll also have regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and adjust your plan as necessary. You won’t be on this weight loss journey alone.
