More than 70% of American adults are overweight or obese. Obesity is a disease that can put increased strain on your heart, organs, and bones, and make it harder to live everyday life.
Obesity can also put you at a greater risk for suffering a range of health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression. Being overweight can also impact your quality of life by keeping you from participating in certain activities.
If you’re overweight, you might know that losing weight could benefit your health. But you probably also know that losing weight can be very difficult. Many people try to lose weight with the help of crash diets or fitness fads, only to find that the weight comes creeping back.
At Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, our team understands that changing your habits, diet, and activity level isn’t easy. Achieving lasting weight loss takes knowledge and personalized support, and we can provide that with a customized medically supervised weight loss plan.
Obesity is a complicated disease. From genetics to lifestyle habits, your weight is affected by many factors that are unique to you.
The first step in successfully losing weight is understanding your body and metabolism. That’s why the first step on your weight loss journey at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness begins with a comprehensive lifestyle analysis.
Together, we review your medical history, family history, and your past experiences with dieting and weight loss. This review also includes lab testing and a basal metabolic rate (BMR) assessment to determine how many calories your body naturally burns while at rest.
Our weight loss experts then use your test results and your goals for weight loss to develop a personalized plan for you. Your customized weight loss plan will focus on your long-term health and overall wellness.
Weight loss occurs when your body burns more calories than it takes in. With your BMR assessment, you’ll learn the average amount of calories your body burns each day. Your weight loss program will focus on increasing the number of calories you burn to help you drop excess weight.
As part of your plan, we’ll provide nutrition counseling and guidance on increasing your activity levels. We may also suggest getting vitamin B12 injections, which can increase your energy levels and enhance your body’s ability to burn calories. Furthermore, we may suggest taking weight loss medications, which can suppress your appetite so you eat less throughout the day.
These methods, along with healthy lifestyle changes, can help you achieve a healthier weight.
Trendy exercise and diet plans often fail, because they’re not personalized for your lifestyle, and they’re not sustainable. Long-term weight loss takes knowledge, dedication, and support.
When you partner with us, our team of experts will guide you and support you throughout your weight loss journey. And we’ll monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed so you can continue getting results.
