Can You Help Me Lose Weight?

If you’re carrying around some excess weight, you’re certainly not alone. The CDC says about three-quarters of American adults are overweight, and that includes 42% of adults who are obese. Being overweight can make you feel sluggish and tired, and it can take a big toll on your confidence, too. But it gets worse: Those excess pounds put you at risk for serious medical problems, too.

At Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, our team is dedicated to providing customized weight-loss programs for patients at our locations in Boonton, Pompton Plains, and Jersey City, New Jersey. In fact, as a leading sports medicine practice, Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness uses the most advanced approaches to weight loss, so you can get rid of those extra pounds and enjoy better health and wellness. Here’s how we can help you.

Metabolism is key

Lots of factors can contribute to weight gain, including your age, your diet, your lifestyle, and even your genetics. But no matter what’s causing your weight gain, if you want to shed pounds and keep them off, you need to rev up your metabolism. 

Metabolism refers to the process your body uses to process the calories you consume. Most of us have at least one friend or colleague who can eat just about whatever they want without packing on pounds. Maybe they work out like crazy...or maybe they have a really powerful natural metabolism that helps them burn off excess calories before they have a chance to “turn into” fat.

If you want to lose weight, revving up your own metabolism is one of the best ways to achieve your goals. At Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, we focus on optimizing your metabolism through proper diet, enjoyable (and realistic) physical activity goals, and supplemental nutrition, so your body becomes a calorie-burning machine. 

A weight-loss plan that’s uniquely yours

We start by gaining an in-depth understanding of your metabolism and your overall health. In addition to asking you about your medical history and your lifestyle, we use lab tests to develop a metabolic and nutrition profile that reflects your unique nutritional needs and deficiencies. Your exam and testing also determine your basal metabolism rate, or BMR — the number of calories your body burns while you’re relaxing.

Using all these factors, our team develops a comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle plan aimed at helping you lose weight, keep it off, and enjoy better overall wellness, too. Your plan will be based specifically on your needs and health profile, and can include an array of options, like:

Vitamin B12 injections work along with nutrition and physical activity to rev up your metabolism, converting fats and breaking down carbs into usable energy. That means you’ll have the energy you need to stay on track during your weight-loss journey, and you can also avoid the “lows” many people feel from calorie-restrictive fad diets. Plus, B12 works to combat chronic fatigue, helps prevent anemia, and supports nervous system health, as well.

Resolve to lose weight — and keep it off

Losing weight is a popular New Year’s resolution, but unfortunately, it’s one most of us fail to achieve. With help from Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, you can finally drop the excess weight so you look and feel great — and feel more confident and attractive, too.
