Weight Loss Q & A
Why do I need to lose weight?
If you’re overweight or obese, it puts a strain on all your organs, bones, and muscles. These factors all make you far more vulnerable to serious health problems such as:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Some forms of cancer
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Heart disease
- Fatty liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Sleep apnea (not breathing properly when asleep)
Carrying excess weight also affects your ability to engage in physical activities that you enjoy and can impact your social life and mental health.
Why is it so hard to lose weight?
If you struggle to stick to a diet and exercise plan, you’re not alone; most people find it a challenge to stick with the healthy habits needed to lose weight. Very often there are underlying issues that make it harder for people to lose weight successfully, such as:
- Mental health problems
- Psychological barriers
- Not understanding how to lose weight
- Finding an enjoyable form of exercise
- Leading a busy life that leaves little time for exercise
- Underlying health conditions, such as hypothyroidism
If you’re struggling with weight loss, the team at Evergreen Medical Clinic can run tests to check for any underlying health problems that could be affecting your ability to lose weight.
How do I get help with losing weight?
If you do have a health problem, getting treatment for it makes it easier to lose weight, and you’ll feel a whole lot better.
Assuming there aren’t any medical issues affecting your ability to lose weight, then the team can help you by working in collaboration to produce a diet and fitness plan that works for you.
There aren’t any magic tricks when it comes to losing weight. The essential truth of weight loss is that you must burn off more calories than you take in. The problem is how to do this in a way that’s sustainable, healthy, and fits in with your life.
Quick fix diets and treatments are unlikely to offer a solution, and you may end up putting on weight in the long run.
The team at Evergreen Medical Clinic can help with practical solutions and emotional support. Some of the methods they use to help you lose weight include:
- Creating nutritious meal plans
- Vitamin B12 injections
- Slim Shots (to boost liver health and metabolism)
- HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) shots
- Adipex appetite suppressant medication
- Glutathione (antioxidant metabolism booster)
