Medical Weight Loss Can Help You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

Losing weight is always challenging, whether you want to lose 20 pounds or 100. The problem is, even though it seems way too easy to gain weight, it can be a lot harder to take it off again. 

Sticking to a plan of healthy eating and exercise for weeks on end can be daunting for even the most dedicated person, especially when your life is already really busy. And that’s a big reason why so many people give up before ever reaching their weight-loss goals.

Medical weight-loss programs take a different approach to shedding excess pounds. Instead of focusing on one-size-fits-all diets, medical weight loss starts by understanding why you’re gaining weight — and what’s keeping you from getting rid of those pounds. Then, we develop a weight-loss program that’s tailored to your needs, your lifestyle, and your goals, so you can enjoy greater success right from the start. Here's how medical weight loss at Restore Osteo of Colorado helps residents from Golden, Colorado, achieve their weight-loss goals.

Medical weight loss is different

Most of us gain weight by eating too much and not being active enough. So to lose weight, you just reverse the process — eat less and exercise more, right? Not quite. While we all tend to gain weight in a similar way, we tend to lose weight differently — and that’s why a diet that works well for someone else may not work for you at all. 

Your metabolism plays a big role in burning off calories before they have a chance to convert into fat. If your metabolism is naturally slow, you’ll have a much harder time losing weight and keeping it off. Other times, nutritional deficiencies can interfere with weight loss or cause you to crave unhealthy foods. Lifestyle habits, underlying medical problems, and even your genetics also play big roles in how efficiently you burn calories and lose weight.

Generic diets tend to fail because they’re based on general principles of weight loss, not on what works best for you. Eating fewer calories and cutting out certain foods can help you lose weight, but that approach can also deprive you of nutrients that are important for your health and your metabolism. In fact, some fad diets may even slow down your ability to lose weight. And let’s face it — you’re probably only going to stick with exercise if you enjoy it, which means you need to set goals for activities, too.

Customized weight loss for you

While generic diets can set you up for failure (or at least for a lot of struggle and frustration), medical weight loss is designed to set you up for success. That’s because at Restore Osteo of Colorado, our weight-loss programs are based on the latest research into nutrition, metabolism, and other influential factors that can play a role in your weight-loss journey. 

Your plan starts with a medical exam, often coupled with nutritional testing and other lab tests to identify issues that could be interfering with your weight loss. Then, we work with you to create a healthy eating plan and other healthy habits designed not only to help you just lose weight but to help you keep it off — and enjoy a healthier lifestyle for years to come.

Plus, there’s another key difference between medical weight loss and generic diet plans. Throughout your weight-loss journey, our team will be there to provide you with the support, guidance, and advice you need to stay motivated and stay on track. You’ll have regular check-ins to make sure your plan is optimized for your needs and your goals, and if you have any concerns along the way, we’re just a phone call away. Having a medical professional in your corner is a major benefit that can help you avoid the frustration and burnout that causes so many generic diets to fail.
