Struggling to Lose Weight?
If you’re struggling to lose weight, work with a physician to get a weight loss plan that supports you and gets results
You’ve decided you’re ready to lose weight and improve your health.
So you researched weight loss diets and combed the internet for all the tips and tricks to lose that weight.
Maybe you’ve even decided to exercise three days a week to burn some extra calories.
And you start out strong, feeling super motivated for those first few days. Even for the first week. And you’re thinking—I got this.
But all the aspects of your life that prevented you from losing weight in the first place start to get in the way again.
You’re busy and getting to the gym seems nearly impossible even three days a week.
And that busy schedule makes cooking a total drag. Seriously, who has time for this? It’s easier to eat out or buy prepackaged meals—even when you know they aren’t the best for you.
And while you’re thinking about food, what about all those favorite snacks you said you’d cut out of your diet? The temptation to indulge is always there now. Truly you want to eat all your favorite unhealthy foods more now than you did before.
Why? Because you’re hungry. Not just kind of hungry—you feel like you’re starving and it’s making you tired and irritable.
And now that certain foods are off the table you feel like it’s harder to unwind with friends and family at the weekend when everyone loves dining out as a way to connect. So you can add isolation to the list of growing frustration.
And the next thing you know, 2.5 weeks into your attempt at losing weight, you’ve given up on the whole plan because why bother? You feel more miserable now than before.
Any of this sound familiar?
If you’ve experienced even one of these frustrations on your weight loss journey, then you know how hard it is to lose weight on your own. You know how long it can take and how many ups and downs there can be along the way.
Because barriers to losing weight are tough.
Barriers like demotivation, embarrassment, or pain are deeply emotional and challenging for anyone to overcome.
It’s so easy to get frustrated and feel like it’s impossible. Especially when progress comes slower than you hoped.
And it’s easy to feel alone. To feel like no one can understand how it feels to go through this journey.
But the support you need is out there.
This is why working with a physician for weight loss is the best investment you make to get results.
Because with a physician you find more than injections, weight loss supplements, and meal plans.
What you get is a team dedicated to your success. Dedicated to helping you become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. With the support you need every step of the way.
So how does physician-led weight loss support you?
1. Weekly Check-ins
If you’ve tried losing weight on your own, you know how easy it is to get off track.
Whatever you’re facing, a physician gives you strategies to help and even creates a plan that gets around those difficulties.
So when you go to a weight loss center for a weight loss plan, you set yourself up for success by getting a support network.
You get weekly check-ins so you don’t feel isolated as you go through your weight loss journey.
These weekly check-ins help you stay accountable and give you the chance to check in with a physician for support and advice. And this support is hugely influential for successfully losing the weight you want.
Plus a physician will remind you to celebrate even the smallest loss. And cheer you on as you stay consistent with your plan.
2. Personalized Meal Plans
There are three major struggles with dieting:
- You give up moments of joy from eating your favorite foods.
- Finding time to make the healthy foods you need
- Getting the right food for complete nutrition
While working with a physician means you’ll likely still forgo some of your favorite junk foods on a regular basis, they can help you with the second and third roadblock.
When you work with a doctor, you get the best advice about eating for your needs and lifestyle. They give you realistic ways of finding time to prepare food in your busy schedule.
They’re also experts at setting you up on a diet to lose weight and still get all your nutritional needs.
As humans, we all have certain essential nutrients we must get from our food.
But depending on personal nuances in your biology, you might need to cut certain foods out of your diet and emphasize others.
If you’ve already tried before, you know revamping your diet is no easy task. Largely because there’s so much information about diet out there that it’s hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong.
It’s easy to be unsure what the diet is for you.
When you work with a physician to lose weight, you get a personalized meal plan that’s backed by evidence and produces results.
3. Personalized Exercise Routines
Believe it or not, there’s no one “right” way to exercise.
While you’ll hear people who do every type of exercise say their way is the best way, the truth is this: the recommendation for exercise according to the Department of Health and Human Services is 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
It doesn’t specify what this exercise must be.
The most important thing is finding something you love doing and doing it any 3 days a week that work best for you.
You can swim, walk, jog, lift weights, play basketball, hike, or do yoga.
But if you’re struggling to find an exercise activity that you enjoy and want professional guidance, your team at a weight loss center can set you up with a workout plan.
That way you don’t have to wonder how you should exercise. And you don’t have to spend time planning your workout routines either.
