Hit A Wall In Your Weight Loss Efforts? Medically-Supervised Weight Loss Can Get You Over The Hump

One of the most frustrating things about weight loss regimens is when you hit that plateau and can’t lose any more weight no matter what you try. It can be very disheartening and has been known to discourage people enough that they simply give up. It doesn’t have to be that way!

Medically-supervised weight loss can help you lose those last few stubborn pounds safely and effectively for the long-term.

Hitting The Wall

Hitting a wall in your weight loss program, or plateauing, can happen for many reasons, but it usually has to do with your metabolism. All along, as you’ve been losing weight, your metabolism has been declining. If you’ve lost a lot of weight, your metabolism is burning much fewer calories than it did when you were at your heaviest. A slower metabolism slows weight loss, even when you are still on your reduced calorie diet. Eventually, the number of calories you burn is equal to the number of calories you eat and you hit that wall.

To move past this weight loss plateau, you need to further decrease your calories or increase your physical activity to burn more calories. If you don’t make any changes to your existing program, you can maintain your weight, but won’t lose anymore.

Medically-Supervised Weight Loss Helps People At All Levels Of Fitness

The medically-supervised weight loss program at The Complete Wellness Center of Orange City can help you get past this plateau by providing you with guidance on how to safely achieve your final goals. This gentle guidance can be just what you need to fine-tune your efforts and meet your weight loss goals.

Our program was designed to help people at all levels of fitness achieve their weight-loss goals. Many people think they have to be severely obese or have a medical condition that makes dieting and exercise especially difficult in order to take advantage of medically-directed weight loss, but that is not true at our clinic!

We provide nutritional counseling and customized medical and diet plans based on your age, body type, goals, and lifestyle to set you up for success. We work with people who want to lose weight after a lifetime of being overweight, after illness or injury, and even those who are just tired of seeing the scale creep higher every year.

Medically Directed Weight Loss Can Provide The Results You’ve Been Missing

Have you struggled to lose weight on your own or do you need direction on how to safely lose weight and keep it off? Medically directed or medically supervised weight loss may be the answer and it’s available right here in Orange City at Wellspring Health!

What is Medically Directed Weight Loss?

Medically directed weight loss is a supervised weight loss program that uses scientific principles and research to help patients address the root cause of their weight problems. It does not involve diet pills or surgery, but instead focuses on good nutrition and healthy habits like exercise, diet, and lifestyle to achieve weight loss goals.

Each plan is customized to the individual patient’s needs, taking into account their age and any medical conditions or injuries they may have. Each program is overseen by a licensed healthcare professional or a team of medical professionals. This team is there to make sure the weight loss proceeds in a safe manner and to provide the support and advice a patient needs to develop habits and lifestyle changes that they can carry forward after the program ends.

In some cases, the program is covered by health insurance.

What To Expect From Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs

Medically supervised weight loss programs start with a full medical evaluation, including the review of blood work. The medical professional will talk to you about your weight loss goals, current eating and lifestyle habits, any medical conditions you have or are at risk of developing, and any medications your currently take.

From there, you’ll work with a nutritionist to develop a healthy eating plan that reduces your calorie consumption. Throughout the program you will meet regularly with your supervising team who will track your weight loss success and monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, sugar levels, and activity levels to see if and how they are impacted by the program.

Medically Directed Weight Loss Programs Provide Long-Lasting Results

Medically supervised weight loss programs provide patients with the education, training, tools, and confidence they need to regain control of their eating and lifestyle habits to create lasting change and achieve weight loss success. This is perhaps the biggest benefit to medically directed weight loss programs.

If you have struggled with weight loss for too long or want to achieve long-lasting weight loss, schedule an evaluation at Wellspring Health today. We can help you reach your weight loss goals!
