Weight Loss Q & A

How does metabolism affect my weight?

Metabolism is the pace at which your body uses energy and burns calories. The body burns calories in a few different ways, including through exercise and regular activity. The body also burns calories while at rest.

The amount of energy that your body burns to function at rest is called your basal metabolic rate, or BMR. 

If you have a fast metabolism, your body can burn calories quickly, while if you have a slow metabolism, it takes longer for your body to burn calories. How quickly you burn calories affects how much food you need to eat to lose, gain, and maintain your weight.

If you struggle with your weight, the team at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness can help you learn about your metabolism and design an effective and healthy weight loss plan for you.

How can I achieve healthy weight loss?

Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness offers a number of different options for patients interested in healthy, sustainable weight loss. These include:

  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Weight loss medications
  • Diet counseling

To determine the best fit for you, your team starts by talking to you about your lifestyle, your diet, your family history, and your history with food. They also perform comprehensive lab testing, including BMR testing, to determine the nature of your metabolism.

Based on these factors, the team can design a personalized plan that meets your needs and focuses on long-term health and wellness.

How can vitamin B12 injections assist my weight loss?

Vitamin B12 injections offer you a variety of advantages to aid your weight loss journey. These include: 

Improved body function

Vitamin B12 helps your body carry out functions, including converting fats and proteins into energy, and breaking down carbohydrates. 

Increased energy

Vitamin B12 shots also boost your energy and increase your metabolism. In combination with healthy choices, such as eating a balanced diet and maintaining a regular exercise routine, vitamin B12 shots can make weight loss easier and more efficient.

Vitamin B12 shots are especially helpful to individuals who suffer from chronic fatigue, which can greatly hinder their ability to be active.

It’s a natural vitamin that you can find in many foods, including:

  • Milk and other dairy products
  • Poultry and eggs
  • Fish
  • Meat  

Vitamin B12 is also present in nutritional yeast, some plant milks, and fortified cereals.
