New Year’s Eve is an exciting time of new possibilities, when you can clearly envision your ideal self taking shape in a new year with each passing month (aided, perhaps, by that glass of champagne). But by February, you’ve already run out of a steam on most resolutions. And one of the easiest ones to leave behind — until it’s resurrected next Dec. 31 — is the resolution to finally lose that weight.
Now, you can start the new year off right by taking steps today to make your weight-loss resolution a reality. You know that willpower alone doesn’t work; it requires help.
At Midwest Integrated Medical Center, in Hudson, Wisconsin, our functional medicine specialists offer science-backed medical weight loss that is individualized to your particular challenges so you achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life. Through in-depth consultations and medical tests, including blood work, our team personalizes a weight loss plan just for you. And, no, that doesn’t simply mean adding more crunches at the gym or eating more broccoli.
Learn how your body works
You’ve noticed it on your own: Some people can eat just about anything (it seems), while you put on 5 pounds if you just look at chocolate. Why is that?
The doctors and nutritionists at Midwest Integrated Medical Center determine what’s going on inside your body to figure out whether an underlying condition may be interfering with how you digest food, burn fat, and determine whether you’re hungry or full.
Everything from hormonal imbalances that occur with life changes to thyroid problems to inflammatory reactions to foods can cause your body to hold onto fat. These factors may also increase your cravings for the exact types of food that trigger the cascade of weight gain.
Find amazing new foods
If you’ve been eating a pretty standard American diet from the middle aisles of your local grocery store, you may be triggering inflammation in your body that interferes with your health and weight. Your nutritionist helps you rebuild your diet so it emphasizes fresh foods teeming with the vitamins and nutrients you need to build strong, healthy cells and organs.
Discover the rich tastes and textures of fruits, vegetables, and healthy proteins and fats while transitioning away from:
- Trans fats
- Fast foods
But don’t worry: You don’t have to make all of the changes all at once. You’re coached through each step of our medically supervised weight loss program so you can gradually improve your lifestyle while improving your life.
Boost your fat-burning
At Midwest Integrated Medical Center, we prescribe therapies based on your particular needs. In addition to creating a healthy new way of eating that you love and finding exercises that you enjoy, your specialist may recommend:
- Body contouring with the pain-free, noninvasive Invisa-RED™ laser to permanently rid yourself of stubborn pockets of fat
Improve your well-being
While you may have been motivated toward weight loss simply because you want to look better, medically supervised weight loss does that and so much more. Boosting your metabolism with fresh foods and vitamins, increasing your activity levels, and losing unneeded pounds offers all kinds of other benefits, too. Women and men who’ve lost weight at Midwest Integrated Medical Center report greater energy and feeling healthier, younger, and more like themselves.
