Sometimes medical weight loss is the best option.
**Results May Vary** Diet and exercise are essential when it comes to weight loss, but sometimes it’s just not enough. When that happens, perhaps medical weight loss is the solution. Many factors come into play when talking about shedding pounds. Aging can slow a person’s metabolism down considerably. Having children can also change a person’s energy levels. Sometimes adrenal fatigue or other hormonal imbalances can make a person gain weight or make it nearly impossible to budge from a plateau. Often times a new diet and exercise program when first initiated causes rapid results, this is because when you cut calories, the body gets needed energy by releasing stores of glycogen, a type of carbohydrate found in the muscles and liver. Glycogen is partly made of water, so when glycogen is burned for energy, it’s actually releasing water, not fat, which means the weight loss is a temporary result.
Losing weight also isn’t just about fat.
When you’re dieting and exercising, you lose both muscle and fat. Your muscle plays a key role in your metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories) and the more weight you lose, unfortunately, the slower your metabolism becomes. This cause and affect basically means you’re eventually going to hit a plateau where you’re burning fewer calories than you did when you were heavier – which means in order to lose more weight, you’ll not only have to increase your exercise, but in combination with that – you’ll have to decrease your caloric intake. Using the same approach that worked initially may allow you to maintain your weight, but it won’t lead to more weight loss. Medical weight loss is one way to go when you’ve reached a point in your current lifestyle that doesn’t allow you to drop pounds like you used to. A simple procedure that utilizes a naturally occurring hormone already found in your body can help burn fat faster. Medically-supervised injections of this fat-burning hormone in combination with a high protein, low calorie diet can boost your metabolism back to life and help you lose weight quickly and safely. The diet combined with small injections of the fat-burning hormone allows your body to burn up to 2000-3000 calories a day, which are released from excess fat stores. Throughout the medical weight loss process, patients are supervised. Lab work is done to ensure the patient’s body is in good condition for injections and regular visits are made for injections, consultations and meal planning. Within weeks most patients begin noticing results such as loose-fitting clothes, curbed hunger and more energy. Get started with Medical Weight Loss at Novopelle today!
