Many people who have tried and failed to lose weight (or keep it off) have followed conventional approaches and pre-built, “cookie cutter” diet plans and exercise programs. The problem is, we’re not all the same! One size does not fit all.
An individualized, intensive lifestyle intervention, on the other hand, shows a far greater benefit than a diet plan alone. Systematic reviews and trials have shown that an individualized nutrition consultation decreases weight more, compared to a generalized approach.
Sustainable weight loss depends on so much more than establishing a caloric deficit, yet many clinics still focus their programs on the calories in – calories out concept. We understand that monitoring caloric intake is only part of the solution. While health behavior modifications, like diet and exercise, are the cornerstone of obesity management, these changes alone are often not sufficient for achieving one’s goals. In fact, health behavior modification generally achieves only a 3% to 5% increase in weight loss.
A critical component that is largely ignored is the fact that obesity is also linked to a series of hormonal regulators that make it incredibly difficult to lose weight on your own. For many, it’s not simply an issue of will power. Our medical team understands this and will create a custom weight loss plan based on your individual needs.
