So many men and women have put on excess weight due to lifestyle, work schedule, hormonal imbalances, stress, lack of sleep, medications, diabetes, pregnancy, thyroid and the list goes on and on.
And if you were to ask a person about the steps you need to take in order to lose weight, just about everyone will give you the same answer. They will tell you to diet and exercise. However, just about everyone who has actually tried to lose weight will also tell you that sticking to a diet and trying to exercise are not as effortless as it sounds.
Seriously, if dieting and exercising to lose weight was easy, everyone would be in great shape. However, the fact that most of us know at least one person who has been on multiple diets and has only received minimal results speaks to just how difficult it is for a person to lose weight and to keep it off.
With so many people desiring to lose weight, the fact that there are hundreds of diet plans on the market to choose from doesn’t make it any easier — the conflicting advice and a plethora of weight-loss options, how do you know which diet might work for you?
Many of these diet plans revolve around eliminating certain food groups from your diet, not exercising at all, and less than a healthy recommended daily caloric intake. And while some of these drastic diets do produce results, in most cases, the results are short-termed. In order to successfully diet, you need help.
This is where medical weight loss programs are more effective. Medical weight loss can help you lose the weight you need to lose and keep it off. There are a couple of reasons why these programs are more successful. Most importantly, medical weight loss programs design diets and exercise programs that are customized to you and your body type.
Unlike physician-supervised weight loss programs that provide individualized treatment in a clinical setting, self-supervised weight loss programs are grouped in plans for either men or women. These generalizations are not specific enough because in order to be truly successful with losing weight, you have to not only consider the physical aspect of the person, but also their emotional and mental state. Why? Because each person has a different relationship with food and how their body responds to food.
