Behind saving money, losing weight and getting in shape is the second most common New Year’s resolution Americans make at the beginning of the year. While making a New Year’s resolution is an excellent way to initiate positive change, statistics show that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. What’s more, most people who lose weight are unable to keep it off in the long run. If you want your New Year’s resolution to stick, a medically supervised weight loss program can help.
Long-term weight loss requires more than willpower. The vast majority of people who fail to achieve lasting weight loss don’t do so from lack of trying. Losing weight and keeping it off is complex. Our experts at Advantage Spinal Dynamics & Innovative Medicine create comprehensive, personalized weight loss plans to help men and women shed pounds and keep them off for the long term.
Here are the key components that can help you make your New Year’s resolution stick.
Lasting weight loss requires a personalized program. But unfortunately, going it alone often involves a one-size-fits-all approach that fails to take individual factors such as your lifestyle, personality, and health status into consideration.
Our medically supervised programs are personally designed to provide individualized tools and solutions to guide you to weight loss success. Our weight loss experts tailor your plan so that you lose weight and feel good while doing so.
Medically supervised weight loss programs use your current health status as a guide in creating an individualized plan just for you. A metabolic evaluation helps identify underlying issues, like thyroid disorders, that can hinder weight loss efforts. Our weight loss experts will help manage coexisting conditions like high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes so that you remain healthy while slimming down. The team can also help manage symptoms, such as cravings and fatigue so that you feel well throughout your journey.
Do-it-yourself weight loss programs involve a temporary change in eating habits. Even if you stick to the plan, once you go back to your typical eating habits, you’re likely to regain the weight you worked so hard to lose.
Behavioral change is a vital component to lasting weight loss. Medically supervised programs help you develop and adopt behaviors that support long-term weight loss, so you can lose excess weight and keep it off.
People who receive support during their weight loss journey lose more weight and keep it off longer than those who go it alone. Support is a major part of medically supervised weight loss programs.
Your counselor meets with you at least once a week to ensure that you’re staying on track and feeling great. These meetings are opportunities to tweak your program, help you remain motivated, and keep you accountable on your journey. Weekly meetings with your support team ensure that the scale continues to move in the right direction.
Instead of simply following a dietary plan that tells you what to eat and what to avoid, a medically supervised weight loss program provides you with important tools to make the type of choices that help you trim down long term. You’ll learn how to manage your portion sizes, choose healthier items when eating out, avoid emotional eating, survive the holidays without depriving yourself, and more.
For all of these reasons, there’s no question about it: Partnering with a weight loss professional through a medically supervised weight loss plan leads to more success. Our team monitors you closely, coaches you on the path to successful weight loss, and provides you with the tools necessary to maintain your healthy weight.
