When it comes to new year’s resolutions, most people think about their physical form. The most popular resolution for 2024 is improved fitness (48% of people aspire to this goal), while 34% say they want to lose weight and 32% say they want to improve their diet.
Clearly, a lot of us use the new calendar year to do a health reset. But if you’ve resolved to lose weight in years past with nothing to show for it, it’s time to approach it differently.
To some extent, medical weight loss uses the same principles you’ve likely already tried to deploy for yourself. Diet and exercise play key roles in our weight loss plans, for example. The difference is that you get professional, dedicated support in implementing those lifestyle changes.
We work with you to find what’s effective for your body and what aligns with your preferences. Some people see results with a low-fat diet, for example, while others benefit from limiting their intake of carbohydrates. Our team works with you to help you find a healthy eating plan that drives results and feels sustainable. We take your food preferences into account to make it easier to stick with your new diet.
But the difference with our weight loss services doesn’t stop with personalized support from experts. We also apply our medical expertise.
Some people need more than healthy lifestyle modifications to overcome their barriers to weight loss. We can evaluate you for potential roadblocks, then help you overcome them.
Some people, for example, have a resistance to leptin. Without this hormone working the way it should, your brain might tell you that your body needs more food even when it doesn’t. If you’re dealing with leptin resistance, though, we can work with you to manage it.
Stacey-Jo and our team also have the ability to prescribe weight loss medications like semaglutide (Wegovy®) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro®). With these weekly injections, you get a way to regulate your appetite, helping you on your way to weight loss.
Ultimately, with our medical weight loss management services, we provide wraparound support and added resources to help you drop pounds — and keep them off. We work with you to sustainably move toward your body goal while adopting a healthy lifestyle that you can stick to long-term.
