The NIH (National Institute of Health) predicts that 1 in 3 Americans struggle with bein overweight. Carrying around more weight can put a strain on your body, and lead to many physical conditions such as: joint issues, heart/ cholesterol issues, diabetes, chronic fatigue, digestive issues, irregular periods, increase in inflammation and period pains. Not to mention, it can make your feel very uncomfortable, and lead to depression or anxiety.
From my years of clinical experience I have noticed that weight loss sometimes requires an integrative approach for best results. My weight loss plans include:
1- Full blood work testing to understand base health status.
2- Overhauling diet; this also includes incorporating customized meal plan options and finding the right caloric intake for your body needs. I teach patients about intermittent fasting or detoxing to help kick start their healthy natural eating habits.
3- Supplementation with the right digestive aids to help improve gut health.
4- Controlling blood sugar levels or any other underlying medical conditions.
5- Using an integrative approach to weight loss with the option of adding pharmaceuticals if necessary. combination of medications.
Accountability and consistency is key to a healthy weight loss plan, and starting with weekly check-ins for the first 4-6 weeks may be necessary to ensure the success of changing to healthier, happier eating habits and reaching the desired healthy weight.
