New Year, New You – Making Your Weight Loss Resolution Stick
We’re all guilty of making new years resolutions that fall by the wayside within a few months (or even a few weeks), but this year, with our help, you can make sure that you stay true to your resolution and say goodbye to your excess weight for good.
Get Medical Support
We strongly recommend that you visit your doctor before making major changes to your diet, exercise regime and lifestyle, because it’s important to assess your health and ensure you’re not putting yourself at any risk when adopting new habits. Plus, by choosing to have regular weigh-ins and health assessments throughout their weight loss journey, many people often find themselves motivated to keep up with their new regime in order to show their doctor that they’re making progress.
Get Personal Support
Embarking on a weight loss journey can take its toll emotionally, so it’s essential that you seek personal support from family and friends. It goes without saying that if you come to us for medical weight loss support, we’ll do all we can to provide emotional support along the way. However, when it comes to day to day motivation and support, its incredibly valuable to have family or friends to turn to when you’re lacking enthusiasm or feeling like giving up. They can help to cheer you on, celebrate with you when you reach weight loss milestones, and even accompany you with exercise or nutrition to ensure you stay focused on your goals.
Don’t Deprive Yourself
For some people the process of losing weight or dieting is associated heavily with deprivation. Of course you’ll need to cut out some unhealthy foods from your diet to succeed in losing weight, but when we completely deprive ourselves of certain foods we tend to crave them even more and it makes it harder to stay on the wagon. Rather than seeing your weight loss journey as a diet, think of it as a complete change of lifestyle which focuses on balance and moderation. You can treat yourself from time to time, but those treats should be factored carefully into your nutrition plan and combined with plenty of healthy options and exercise. If you can achieve a healthy balance, you’ll find yourself succeeding with weight loss without feeling deprived and downhearted.
Find a Program That Works for You
There isn’t just one way to lose weight and different strategies work for different people. If you’ve failed some weight loss programs in the past its no reason to completely give up – we can help to find one which works with your lifestyle, personality and goals. For some, it may be that a nutrition consultation is enough to get them onto the right track with their diet. For others, a specialized diet such as Ideal Protein or the hCG diet could help them to stick to a healthy eating regime and drop the pounds.
Sometimes more medical intervention is necessary, at which point MIC shots or appetite suppressants could be incredibly beneficial. The best way to figure out what will work for you is to visit your doctor, talk through your goals and the difficulties you’ve come up against in the past, assess your current state of health, and formulate a unique weight loss strategy that will maximize your chances of success.
