If you’re reading this post, odds are that you are struggling or have struggled with weight loss. Maybe you previously tried a diet (or a few), lost some weight only to find that you put it right back on afterwards. At Blue Sky MD, we know that changing your lifestyle is the key to sustained weight loss. A task that is much easier said than done. That’s why, oftentimes, it’s important to enlist the help of weight loss professionals. Check out our 5 ways that weight loss professionals can help you reach your goal.
- Create a Customized Plan
Our bodies are not created equal. Your body is not like anyone else’s. There is no one size fits all diet. When it comes to successful, sustained weight loss, it’s important to take a look at how your body works. A physician assisted weight loss program can evaluate your metabolism, check for irregularities in your blood work, measure your body fat, and learn about your current fitness level. Armed with this information, a wellness coach can create customized medical weight loss programs based on your current weight, eating habits, medical history and physical activity.
- Set Realistic Goals
Most fad diets set you up to fail from the beginning by severely restricting your calories, forcing you to eat foods you don’t like, and promising rapid weight loss. In order to achieve long lasting weight loss, you must change your lifestyle. A wellness weight loss professional coach can help you make weekly changes in lifestyle behaviors that can result in long-term weight control success. Setting realistic weekly goals will help you take control of your diet and give you the motivation to keep moving forward.
No, we’re not the weight loss police. But when setting any goal in life, it is helpful to have someone to hold you accountable. Medical weight loss programs provides an opportunity for you to meet with a professional on a regular basis to review your choices. During this meeting, you can discuss strategies that worked and those that didn’t, providing an opportunity to tweak your medical weight loss programs.
- Re-Teach the Way you Think and Feel about Food
Most people that struggle with weight loss do so because of emotional triggers that cause them to eat when not hungry. Meeting with weight loss professionals that can explore these triggers and work with you to develop strategies to avoid them in the future, gives you a better chance at lasting weight loss.
- Provide Support & Encouragement
As with anything in life, there are bound to be successes and failures. It’s important to have someone in your corner that will celebrate your success and prop you back up when you fail. Contact us at Blue Sky MD and we’ll set you up with on of our weight loss professionals.
