Having excess weight can take a toll on you mentally and affect your self-confidence. In this day and age, we are all pushed and pulled in different ways, and all feel the pressure from society to look, act, and be a certain way. Here at NWC, we believe that everyone has a unique journey regarding the way they feel about their bodies. If you are looking for a way to live healthier and feel better, treatments help you achieve what you need. At Neighborhood Wellness Clinic, we have caring and effective ways to help you with weight loss.
Why Does Excess Weight Develop?
Although there can be genetic factors involved, excess weight generally occurs because we consume more calories than we expend. These calories are stored for later use as energy, and if not used, they sit in the body as fat. The best way to lose weight is to usually expend more energy than you consume through exercise and the proper weight loss diet. Unfortunately, this is rarely as easy as it sounds.
How Will We Address Factors that Influence Weight Loss?
As part of your work with us, you will receive a customized weight loss program based on your specific needs. Part of your program may involve:
- Balancing hormones
- Adjusting your metabolism
- Using weight loss medications
- Improving sleep habits
- Adjusting treatments for your other chronic medical conditions
- Performing a comprehensive micronutrient assessment
- Analyzing your cardiovascular genetic profile
- Supplementing with vitamins, minerals, or other nutraceuticals
Healthy Habits for Weight Loss
Sometimes it seems like the only way to lose weight is by adopting a super-strict diet or spending every waking moment at the gym. Although fad diets may seem like the easiest path to dropping a size, they’re all but guaranteed to fail in the long run because they ignore the underlying medical issues and metabolic pathways. Sometimes, the success or failure of your weight loss journey depends on changing approaches to managing your other medical conditions. It is essential to adjust your daily habits (like how much sleep you get and whether or not you eat breakfast) that way. You can make healthier choices regarding food consumption. As part of your program here at Neighborhood Wellness Clinic, you will work with a physician and other health professionals to determine your nutritional requirements and metabolic needs.
