Obesity and unhealthy weight levels are a common affliction in the world today, with more than one in three adults considered to be obese, and two in three considered overweight or obese. Weight loss is hard, however, and despite the push for healthier living, it isn’t as easy as sticking to a weight loss plan.
That’s why many people need to get help with losing weight.
Weight loss clinics are staffed by individuals that have a deep knowledge of the key aspects of losing weight, specifically the necessary food and exercise needed to do so, and can gear this knowledge to directly work with you.
Not everyone loses weight the same way, as no two bodies work the same way. That’s why understanding how your body works can be one of the key components of losing, and keeping off, weight.
But how does a weight loss clinic help with losing weight? What do they do?
The clinic will likely begin with a consultation, during which there will be a full blood panel was taken, a reading of your blood pressure, an EKG, BMI, and a first weighing of your weight at that time. Finally, you’ll have an individualized meeting with a professional to determine your personal goals for weight loss. After the consultation, you will meet with a weekly group of health professionals.
These health professionals will help you to develop and maintain weight loss habits, as well as motivate you in ways that will help you reach your weight loss goals. Their goal is to help you reach the desired weight safely.
They will also help you to maintain the weight once you’ve met your goal, with a weekly meeting with a consultation and those same health professionals. They will provide you with specific assistance while you’re slowly increasing how many calories you can take in per day.
They will teach you techniques and tools to maintain your current weight, to prevent those extra calories from setting you back on your goal.
It is estimated that 90% of all people that have used a professional weight loss program and been successful in losing weight have gained that weight back if they are not involved in a wellness program. A weight loss clinic will include this as part of your program.
The same team of professionals will develop a wellness program with you to keep you healthy long into the future.
