Clinical Weight Loss
What is clinical weight loss and why is it important?
All kinds of people seek clinical weight loss. Almost everyone could improve a little, take a little here, take a little there. Clinical weight loss provides an opportunity for us to look at your underlying conditions and, hopefully, use some medicinal aides to help your overall clinical weight loss journey. Professional advice is very much needed when someone is trying to achieve weight loss. One of the reasons it’s important is that there could be underlying conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or thyroid issues and if you are not aware, you could potentially exacerbate those conditions with wrong plan or over-the-counter medicines and cause negative interactions that affect your health.
It’s also important for goal setting. Sometimes we may have a goal in mind of where we want to be, but if you don’t have that professional guidance, you could set unhealthy goals or have a hard time figuring out the right plan to reach your goal. We want to help you keep everything nice and focused. We all work together to try to figure out what your personal needs are – if that’s a 10-pound weight loss goal versus a 100-pound weight loss goal. Everybody has an idea of where they’d like to be and we try to help facilitate a path and journey to get there.
What’s a healthy weight loss goal?
A healthy weight loss may be three to five pounds a month. Our motto is “Slow and steady wins the race.” You’re not likely to get to your goal and keep it in a three month time frame, for example. It may take you nine months, it may take you a year, it may take you more depending on what your goal is and what a healthy plan is like for you. If we can work together to develop and learn that lifestyle patterns that you can implement and use on a day to day basis, you’re going to be more successful. Once you reach your goal, you have a higher success rate in maintaining that weight loss instead of rebounding and having weight gain. We actually have a post on our blog featuring tips on how to lose weight in a healthy way and you can visit our You Tube channel for our weight loss videos.
What happens when I first come in for a weight loss visit?
When we see a patient for the very first time we introduce them to our calorimetry test. This particular test allows us the opportunity to see where you’re at right now in terms of your caloric intake. Looking at your current weight, we learn how many calories you’re consuming to maintain your current weight, and then work to assess healthy short-term and long-term goals. We would then designate a target goal on a day-to-day basis on what calorie goals should be met. There are also a number of apps that you can use to help regulate what you’re doing in the day – if you’re over or under. Overall we will try to give you a target goal to hit each day so that you can achieve long-term success that’s also maintainable.
What if I am hurt or have an injury?
Another important part of clinical weight loss is we are able to help keep your body physically healthy with our physical medicine team. They actually help implement the exercise portion of the plan, so if you feel limited in some way, “My hip is hurt, my knee is banged up, my shoulder is outta whack, my back is messed up,” – we work with that team to help derive plans specific to match your physical needs. If you feel that’s a limitation, don’t let it be one that stops you! We can help you know what exercises you can do to not exacerbate that pain, but help you be mobile and active.
What About Current Weight Loss Trends?
There are a number of weight loss trends – right now you might hear big buzz words with Keto, wraps, sauna suits – all of these different fad things. They may work for the short run and you may lose some weight, but often they are not successful in the long run due to everybody’s body type and needs being different. The needs of one body may not be the same as the needs of others. One of the hardest things about trends and why they are so appealing is because we live in a society of instant gratification. We want things now, we want it yesterday, we want to be 50 pounds lighter in a week…and that just does not happen. Some of the dangers of weight loss trends, one in particular, is a patient may have an underlying condition – for example, high cholesterol. If you have high cholesterol, the danger could be something like a Keto diet, something like an Atkins diet that promotes more of a fat content intake – you may actually be hurting the situation. It’s important to inform yourself. Go get yourself checked out. Make sure that you understand you before you jump into a diet that could potentially hurt you. Clinical weight loss allows you to be followed and managed by a provider to help guide your journey and do so in an educated manner and not exacerbate any other underlying conditions. It also helps keep you accountable for what you’re doing; whether that be a change in your diet, change in exercise, or with medicinal options or aids that assist you in reaching your goal.
