Understanding Why A Medical Weight Loss Program Could Be Your Best Option

Have you tried all the latest diets but the scale doesn't budge? Or do you lose weight and then regain it again and again? Are you tired of spending hours at the gym but seeing no results? Maybe it's time you tried something new — a medical weight loss program.

At Advanced Medical Physicians located in Newark, Delaware, the doctors and staff use the latest techniques in regenerative medicine and rehabilitation to treat everything from sports injuries and back pain to arthritis and other bone and joint issues.

By using the body's natural ability to heal, they encourage recovery and improve each patient's overall health. Realizing the importance of overall wellness, they also offer a wide range of medical weight loss options to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of chronic diseases.

Achieving one's proper weight is about more than looking good, it's about maintaining better health. Carrying additional pounds can increase the susceptibility for many ailments including metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Extra weight can also put more stress on the joints and contribute to osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. Medical weight loss can help reduce the risk of these chronic issues.

Medical weight loss explained

Unlike traditional diets, medical weight loss plans involve a whole-person approach to shedding pounds. Treatments are customized to the individual and physician-supervised to ensure the best results. Everything is carefully explained, so patients learn exactly how to lose weight and keep it off.

This multidisciplinary approach allows individuals to come at weight loss from a number of different angles. Lifestyle modifications, including exercise guidelines, are key, as are making the correct choices for types of food and quantity consumed. Meal replacement and appetite suppressant plans can help. Customized treatments based on the individual's metabolism, body composition, health profile, and even liver condition can also be undertaken.

Meal replacement plans and how they work

Shedding pounds is about more than eating less, it's about eating the right foods in the right amounts. When first beginning a weight loss program, meal replacement systems can be a great way to get a jumpstart on success while avoiding the stress of figuring out what to eat.

These plans not only wean people off unhealthy eating habits and control the number of calories, they are full of foods that help individuals maintain their muscle mass and fulfill their important nutritional requirements. They also help people feel full, which helps avoid feelings of deprivation and/or unwanted snacking. With no dairy, soy, fructose, and gluten, plus being vegan, non-GMO, and low glycemic, the food meets everyone's needs.

Boosting metabolism with lipotropic injections

Lipotropic injections are a supplement that help break down the fat in the body and eliminate it as waste. Especially effective for people with fatty liver disease, the injections can assist in boosting the metabolism. A heightened metabolism can burn more fat and provide more energy, which encourages greater activity during the day and even more calorie expenditure.

Lipotropic injections can also help remove cholesterol from the bloodstream, protect the kidneys, and even increase immunity to some illnesses.
