It’s no secret that losing weight is one of the most difficult things for people to do. It’s also one of the best things one can do to improve overall health. Weight loss has been known in some cases, to decrease blood pressure, decrease cholesterol levels, decrease strain on joints, lessen pressure on the heart and even reverse type 2 diabetes.
At our medical weight loss clinic, our staff takes a detailed medical history from each patient. They are compassionate, caring and dedicated to improving the health and lives of their patients. We know weight loss improves health, confidence, and self-esteem.
They understand the stigmas attached to overweight and obese patients as well as the difficulty and frustration often associated with losing weight. Our specially trained staff help every patient with individualized care.
With our approaches to weight loss, a patient’s medical history is examined to ensure a safe and effective diet can be tolerated. Then, we set up a diet plan that the patient is comfortable with. We help them select healthy foods like vegetables and fruit and incorporate them into lower fat and calories meals and snacks. We always include lean proteins like chicken breast or fish, broiled or baked.
We teach patients how to season and cook foods so they’re tasty. We make personalized evaluations and offer several recipe ideas that the patients find appealing and appetizing. Understanding that healthy food can be delicious, we have ideas for main dishes, snacks and a wide range of foods that can be eaten and only a few that are off limits.
Patients at our weight loss clinic learn to enjoy low-calorie foods that they once thought we bland and boring. We encourage them to slowly wean away from high-fat foods and high-calorie drinks that pile weight on. Not making some foods completely forbidden aids in learning to eat properly and not feel deprived.
Diet is only part of the solution when dealing with weight loss. Of course, exercise is equally important. By encouraging patients to slowly add just a little exercise each day can make a big difference in a week, a month, a year. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator, example. Parking further away from your destination to add more walking to the daily routine will burn calories. We encourage patients to take daily walks during their lunch breaks, after dinner, or early in the morning; whatever works for them. Walking outside while listening to music has become a favorite way to easily incorporate exercise without feeling like you’re working out. Exercise in this way is perceived as a pleasant experience, rather than a dreaded chore.
Working with individuals in these scenarios and more has successfully helped our patients get the tools they need to succeed in weight loss. Our dedicated staff is devoted to helping patients get their health on the right track with personalized diet and exercise programs that work for them.
