6 Major Advantages of Clinical Weight Loss Programs

By April 18, 2016Weight Loss

Have you tried and tried to lose weight, but you always seem to gain it all back, no matter how you restrict your diet and/or work out? Weight loss is incredibly difficult, especially if you don’t have much or any experience with eating the correct diet and getting the right amount of exercise on a regular basis. It’s made even more difficult if your hormones are out of balance or you have other health factors blocking you from shedding fat. Fortunately, with clinical weight loss programs, more and more people are successfully losing weight and keeping it off without starving themselves or undertaking overly strenuous exercise regimens.

One-Third of Americans Are Obese

First of all, you are not alone. According to the CDC, over a third of adults in the United States are obese, carrying 30% body fat or higher. This is not just an aesthetic problem, but it’s also a serious health concern, as obesity can lead to heart disease, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer. While the CDC deems it one of the country’s leading causes of preventable deaths, losing weight on your own can seem impossible. However, with a clinical weight loss program, you can experience a number of advantages to lose weight faster and in a healthy, sustainable way.

Lose Weight Under Physician Supervision

When you begin a clinical weight loss program, you won’t just be told to follow a restrictive diet and get some exercise. Instead, your weight loss program will be overseen by a physician, and it will be tailored to help you lose weight in a healthy way for your body. Because you are under a physician’s supervision throughout the process, you can rest assured that your needs will be heard and that the program will be safe and effective.

It’s Based on Your Body Composition

Everyone carries weight differently. You may think that a 165-pound woman who’s 5’7” tall would be obese or at least overweight, but many weightlifters and other athletes carry more muscle mass and thus more weight than people who are less active. With a medical weight loss program, your med spa’s qualified staff members will measure your body composition and metabolism, and they’ll put together a program that’s just right for you based on your body fat percentage, your muscle mass, and your metabolism. This way you can lose fat without losing muscle, and you won’t feel hungry all the time, either.

Safe Appetite Suppressants

Furthermore, a lot of diet pills that you find on the market today are actually very dangerous when used in an unsupervised manner. However, with your physician’s supervision, you can take appetite suppressants that will help you stop feeling hungry and stick to a healthier diet.

Get Help With Your Pre-Existing Conditions

If you have a pre-existing condition that is preventing you from losing weight or making it very difficult, then you can benefit from a clinical weight loss program. Your physician will understand how to work with your condition to healthily and safely help you lose weight and feel better about your body.

Accountability

Finally, with a medical weight loss program like the ones we offer at Juvia Med Spa, you will get help holding yourself accountable for your diet and exercise. Between reporting to your physician and/or other helpful staff members at the wellness center, you will have an easier time staying on track, even when you are tempted by junk food or you just don’t feel like going to the gym.
