Estimates suggest that 45 million Americans are on a diet. Although the fitness and nutrition industry is booming, and even though there’s a growing interest in eating well and moving more, the obesity rate in the U.S. is still high.
Weight loss is more than just calories in and calories out. If you’re overweight or obese, you may also suffer from other ailments that slow down your weight loss or contribute to weight gain. Unless you tackle these medical issues, your weight loss journey will be very slow and frustrating.
However, a medically-supervised weight loss program empowers you to learn more about your body and prompts you to lose weight and keep it off for life, without crash dieting, fatigue, and additional stress.
Our team at Integrative Medical Group of Texas put together a short guide to help you get a better understanding of the benefits of a medically-supervised weight-loss program.
Lose weight to regain your health
When consulting a medical professional for weight loss advice, we analyze your medical history before being prescribed a diet. Chronic conditions such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease may require a customized diet.
Medications can also impact your metabolism. So before you see a medical professional, write down a list of all the medications and supplements you’re taking.
Evidence-based weight loss
The nutrition and fitness industry always comes up with a new supplement, tea, or diet that promises to melt your fat and reveal hard abs. Unfortunately, a lot of the dietary advice found in magazines and the media isn’t backed-up by clinical research.
At the Integrative Medical Group of Texas, we use dietary guidelines endorsed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that are crafted by experts with decades of experience in the field.
Low-calorie crash diets work in the short-term but aren’t sustainable in the long-term.
When you eat too little, you may end up dealing with fatigue, frustration, and deficiencies. However, a medical professional can help you put together a plan that allows you to eat at a calorie deficit while enjoying tasty, nutrient-dense meals.
Take the guessing out of weight loss with a medically supervised program
At the Integrative Medical Group of Texas, we understand how hard weight loss can be, especially when there’s a lot of confusing advice in the media regarding what you can eat and how much should you eat.
