Weight Loss Q&A

What is healthy weight loss?

It may be tempting to try to lose weight quickly, but that isn’t the healthiest or most effective approach. Most of the fad diets and fitness plans that claim to help you shed pounds fast involve dietary restrictions that can have detrimental effects on your overall health. Furthermore, restrictive diets that limit your nutritional intake don’t produce long-term weight loss.

A healthier and more sustainable option is to learn and implement lifestyle changes that help you lose weight and keep it off permanently. The team at LiveWell Med Solutions teaches you about proper nutrition, regular physical activity, and balancing your caloric intake with energy output.

How can weight loss improve my health?

For people with obesity, weight loss can be a significant aspect of their preventive medicine strategy. Losing even a modest amount of weight — like 5-10% of your total body weight — can reward you with health benefits like lower blood cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. All these factors influence chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension.

Other benefits of weight loss include:

  • Better sleep
  • Increased energy
  • Improved sexual function
  • Reduced joint pain and arthritis

Losing weight can also boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, which enhances your overall quality of life.

When should I seek medical advice about weight loss?

Whether you’re new to weight loss or you’ve tried to lose weight in the past and haven’t reached your goal, or ended up gaining the weight back, the team at LiveWell Med Solutions can help. 

They provide customized weight loss plans for their concierge medicine patients, which means you get round-the-clock support and advice from a dedicated team and never have to wait for an appointment.

What does healthy weight loss entail?

The team at LiveWell Med Solutions takes a holistic and integrative approach to weight loss. They begin by reviewing your medical history and performing a physical exam to identify any conditions that might affect your weight, such as hormonal imbalances. Then, they help you calculate a healthy weight goal and devise a plan to get you there.

In addition to advising you on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle habits, they may recommend IV vitamin therapy, or hormone replacement therapy to facilitate your weight loss. They also offer nutritional supplements by Ortho Molecular Products®.
