We’ve all encountered people who don’t seem to struggle when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. You may have caught yourself wondering what their secret is, or what it would be like to have their metabolism instead of your own.
While it’s not possible to trade metabolic rates with anyone, there is hope for those who struggle to lose or maintain a healthy weight. Try not to compare yourself to others when your goal is losing weight.
There are many factors that can determine the ease with which one person loses weight when compared to another. For instance, not everyone has the same physiological makeup, so comparing your progress to others is not always an accurate measure of progress.
However, do you sometimes feel like you give more effort and see only a fraction of the results compared to other patrons at your gym? It can be rather frustrating at times.
With that in mind, medical weight loss may be able to help you achieve your goals much more safely and effectively.
Medical weight loss is a weight loss regimen guided by a physician using modern treatment methods. As we mentioned earlier, some people struggle to lose weight more than others regardless of how much effort is put in. This is nothing to be ashamed of, but remain cognizant of it. If you think this may be you, medical weight loss can help. The process consists of three phases:
Phase 1 (Initial Visit):
During phase 1 we will get you started on the path to a healthier you with the following: EKG & bloodwork, physician consultation, body analysis & weigh-in with weight loss coach, diet guide & online account setup, and a 1-2 week supply of appetite suppressants & injection/injections (depending on which program you choose).
Phase 2 (Weight Loss Phase):
Phase 2 consists of weekly or bi-weekly follow-up visits, weigh-in with weight loss coach, 1-2 week resupply of injection/injections and supplements, and a weight loss assessment where changes can be made based on your diet.
Phase 3 (Maintenance Phase):
The third and final phase of treatment consists of weaning you off appetite suppressants, monthly or biweekly injections, and weigh-in with weight loss coach. This phase is designed to get you started maintaining your weight with little help and as much ease as possible.
Our medical weight loss clinic offers two safe and effective treatments to help you lose weight. One weight loss program we offer is B12 weight loss. The B12 weight loss program is exactly as it sounds and more. A weight loss program centered around vitamin B12. In addition to B12 injections, however, you will also receive MIC (methionine, inositol, and choline) Lipo injections as well. These amino acids (in conjunction with B12) help deliver a powerful boost to your fat burning engine. When used alongside proper diet (and appetite suppressants if necessary), B12 weight loss is one of the most effective weight loss programs out there.
