Why is it so hard to achieve weight loss goals and maintain those results?
Several different factors make it challenging to lose weight and keep it off. Our nearly around-the-clock access to fast food is part of the problem, as is grocery store shelves packed full of highly processed food products with confusing labeling.
The modern American lifestyle also shares some of the blame. Many people spend the bulk of their waking hours in front of one screen or another, whether for study, work, or recreation, leaving little time to get fresh air and exercise.
High-stress levels and poor sleep quality also complicate weight loss. For many people, moving the dial on the scale back to a healthier number once they reach a certain weight seems like an insurmountable hurdle.
What are some of the health risks I face if I’m overweight or obese?
Being overweight or obese is one of the most dangerous things you can experience. Some of the health risks with a clear link to carrying excess weight include:
These are just a few health issues you can encounter when you are significantly overweight or obese. Losing even a few pounds can dramatically reduce your risk levels.
How is medically supervised weight loss different?
Medically supervised weight loss places your health and wellness at the center of the process. Unlike fad diets or extreme exercise plans, medically supervised weight loss strives to give your body what it needs to function at peak levels without creating undue stress.
Anyone can shed pounds through a restrictive diet or extreme exercise regimen. But maintaining those results is a different matter. Extensive research shows that the healthiest way to lose weight is gradual, through meaningful lifestyle modifications that are sustainable over time.
