Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss hard?

Weight loss is hard because diet and exercise may not be enough to help you reach your weight goals.

In general, you need to create a calorie deficit to lose weight. However, when you eat less or exercise more to make that deficit, your body counteracts your actions by slowing down your metabolism (lowering your calorie needs) to conserve energy and releasing hormones that trigger your appetite.

Weight loss may benefit your health, but when you lower your calorie intake, your body goes into survival mode, making it harder for you to lose weight and keep it off.

Plus, many factors influence your weight and ability to lose it, like your sex, genetics, and age. 

Health Solutions provides personalized weight loss to help you lose weight and keep it off.

When should I seek medical help for weight loss?

If you need to lose weight for health and commercial diets aren’t working, then it’s time to get medical help for weight loss from the team at Health Solutions. You should also seek professional help for weight loss if you have an underlying health condition that makes it hard for you to lose weight, such as hypothyroidism or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

The team also recommends expert help if losing weight can benefit your chronic health condition, such as PCOS, diabetes, or high blood pressure.

What can I expect from a medical weight-loss program?

You can expect personalized and attentive care from your medical weight-loss program at Health Solutions. The team does a thorough history and physical examination before making any recommendations.

They review your usual diet, exercise habits, and daily routine, as well as your medical history. The team does a physical exam and runs lab work to check for health issues that might affect your weight loss. 

After your exam, they spend time talking to you about your weight-loss plan, which might include:

  • Personalized nutrition plan
  • An exercise program
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement
  • Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy
  • Weight-loss medication

The team schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your weight, provide education and support, and adjust your plan as needed.
