No matter what self-styled “health experts” may say, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. No magical “keto” shake or “can’t fail” exercise routine provides dependable results for every person.
Here at Advantage Spinal Dynamics & Innovative Medicine in Meridian, Idaho, our approach includes weight loss support that helps you lose weight safely and keep the pounds off for good.
Reasons it’s hard to lose weight
New Year’s resolutions often center on self-improvement and wellness. Weight loss is a common goal, but it’s also one quickly abandoned when results aren’t swiftly forthcoming.
Having the right weight loss process is key to success. Simply joining the gym or switching out all of your meals for protein shakes isn’t going to cut it.
To find the right path to losing weight and keeping it off, you have to consider all of the factors that can make it so very hard to lose weight in the first place, including:
- Mental health
- Physical health
Getting on the right path for losing weight means partnering with medical professionals who can help you develop a plan that’s most likely to work for you long-term.
What doesn’t work
Get-thin-quick plans, fad diets, pseudo-scientific exercise machines, and miracle shakes (usually offered by an old high school acquaintance who tracks you down on Facebook) aren’t the answer.
Neither are “diet pills” bought over the counter or online, which can cause serious health side effects and often simply make you lose water weight that you gain back quickly.
These solutions aren’t designed for safe, sane, long-term weight loss but rather fast results that last just long enough for you to spend a lot of money.
What does work
The better solution is a deep understanding of how your body works and lifestyle changes that account for your overall physiology. Diet or exercise alone often won’t help you reach your goals, but a combination of the two is a good starting point.
Our weight loss specialists are trained to take a holistic approach. They complete a thorough assessment of your current health, living conditions, and eating habits to customize a plan specifically for your needs.
We specialize in proven, sustainable weight loss strategies, including:
- Balanced meals and portion control
- Increased water and fiber intake
- Reduced sugar and unhealthy fat intake
- Regular, appropriate exercise
- Reduced stress levels
We help you understand your body, set realistic goals, overcome roadblocks, and succeed in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. The support we provide could make this the year your resolution actually pays off.
