Weight loss is a popular New Year's resolution after the holidays and the delicious (though not always healthy) foods that go along with the season. There’s great motivation to start slimming down in the new year, but doing it all on your own can be tough.
Our team of healthcare professionals at HealthyU Clinics specializes in weight management. We help you start strong with a personalized weight loss plan developed with your unique needs in mind and continue to provide support throughout the process with nutrition and exercise counseling.
Popular fad diets might help you lose weight in the short term, but the pounds always seem to find their way back as these plans are often not practical to sustain within your lifestyle. A conventional healthy diet and plenty of exercise may not shed weight like you thought it would. Why is that?
Your calorie intake is just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Multiple factors besides diet and exercise could impact how you gain and lose weight, such as:
Obesity and excess weight can put you at risk for health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even some forms of cancer. Studies show, however, that losing just five to ten percent of your total body weight could significantly benefit your health.
There’s no single weight loss method that works for everyone. At HealthyU Clinics, our doctors perform a comprehensive health exam and consult with you about your health goals before we formulate your treatment plan.
During your assessment, we can often uncover the causes of your struggle to lose weight, such as a reaction to medication or hormonal imbalance. We consider your lifestyle, medical history, and other elements that could affect your weight loss success.
As you move through your weight loss journey, we also offer support with regular check-ins to monitor your weight and general health, as well as additional nutritional and exercise counseling when necessary. Drug therapy and bariatric surgery are also options if traditional methods aren’t effective for you. Talk to our doctors for more information about the weight loss medications we offer.
