Have you tried all the fad diets and joined gyms, yet you’ve seen no difference in your weight? Are you afraid to make weight loss a New Year's resolution again this year? If so, maybe you need a team of medical experts to help you.
At Midwest Integrated Medical Center in Hudson, Wisconsin, our medical team offers customized weight loss plans that combine the best of conventional medicine, natural therapies, and nutrition coaching with a team-based approach.
What is medical weight loss?
Losing weight successfully often involves evaluating the complete picture of each person. The professionals at Midwest Integrated Medical Center begin with reviewing your complete medical history, discussing your goals and concerns, and learning about previous weight loss attempts.
Medical tests are also conducted to evaluate your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Additional testing may also be done if you have thyroid issues, diabetes, a hormonal imbalance or other health problems. This information is key in helping your team determine how your body is reacting to hunger and satiety as well as what kind of fat burning is occurring.
Once this data is collected, your medical team creates a personalized strategy to help you lose weight and keep it off.
How does medical weight loss work?
Almost half of men and women in the United States try to lose weight each year by exercising more, eating less, consuming healthier foods, and drinking more water. However, more than two out of three adults in the United States are considered to be overweight or obese. Something clearly isn't working.
Medical weight loss offers the unique benefit of a customized plan. Weekly coaching visits with our staff give you both the opportunity to assess how each component is working and make adjustments if necessary. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and receive guidance.
Specialized programs may include weight loss hormone therapy such as hCG, or may consist of a completely natural program based on your input and preferences. All weight loss programs at Midwest Integrated, whether natural or hormone based, will provide guidance on diet, such as portion control, meal timing, fasting techniques, and types of foods to eat and avoid. In addition, food sensitivities are addressed to ensure they are not impeding your weight loss efforts by causing a negative response from your immune system.
Will I get help throughout the process?
After losing weight fairly quickly in the beginning, it's common to hit a weight loss plateau. Your expert team will help you to learn about your own metabolism in order to guide you through a weight loss plateau. By providing you with education about how your metabolism works, they give you the tools to address the challenge, and the encouragement to stick with it for the long term.
Similarly, your medical team will offer advice when it comes to exercise, including the recommended amount, intensity, and type for your individual situation.
