Nearly 75% of adults over 20 in America are overweight or obese. If weight loss is your goal, you’ve likely tried all sorts of diets and exercise routines to shed those extra pounds. But viral fad diets and exercise challenges are usually unsustainable and rarely provide long-term results.
At Trouvaille Med Spa in Bourbonnais, IL, we are passionate about helping our clients meet their weight loss goals and live overall healthier lives. One of the ways we do that is with our unique medical weight loss program that could transform not only your body but also your entire outlook on food and healthy living.
Keep reading to learn about the six benefits you can expect from our medical weight loss program.
1. Healthy Physician-Led Weight Loss
The pitfall of many internet-famous weight loss treatments or programs is that they are not physician-led. Therefore, they are often unhealthy and unsustainable in the long run. When you take part in our medical weight loss program, you will meet regularly with our weight loss physician to discuss your treatment and progress.
2. Gain Access to a Built-In Professional Support Network
Going about your weight loss journey alone is very difficult. When you join our weight loss program, you instantly gain access to a built-in professional support network. From the moment you sign up until the program is complete, our team is there for you every step of the way.
There’s no need to turn to strangers on the internet for guidance. We are always accessible and available to answer any questions you have or provide support when you need it.
3. Medication Can Help Boost Your Weight Loss Efforts
Since our weight loss program is physician-led, we can prescribe weight loss medications to help boost your efforts.
For example, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analogues help regulate hormone levels to increase weight loss. These medications could make it easier for you to lose weight; they have been shown to help people lose 10% to 20% of their body weight within the first four months.
With GLP-1 analogues, someone who weighs 250 pounds could lose up to 50 pounds in just four months. Best of all, these weight loss medications are widely accessible since most people living with type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure can take them.
4. Stay on Track with Weekly Visits
It’s easy to take a day off from your routine here and there when appointments are spaced out weeks or months apart. That’s why our weight loss program includes weekly visits to help keep you on track throughout your weight loss journey.
At each visit, we will take your weight and vitals to chart your progress. We will take an in-depth look at how your overall health changes as you progress through the program.
Weekly visits also allow us to give you more personalized feedback and guidance. For example, if your cholesterol is high, we may recommend cutting out certain foods from your diet.
5. Receive Ongoing and Personalized Guidance
Many weight loss programs end too soon to really be beneficial. They last for a couple of months and then leave you to your own devices to continue your weight loss journey. Predictably, many people fall back into old, unhealthy habits after short-term weight loss treatments.
Our medical weight loss program provides ongoing support and personalized guidance for 12 months. For many people, this is enough time to meet their weight loss goals.
Additionally, unlike other programs, our support continues after you reach your goal weight. Once you achieve your goal, we shift gears to focus on maintaining your new healthy weight for the remainder of the 12 months.
6. Healthy Lifestyle Coaching Helps Keep the Weight Off
Losing weight should not feel like a chore; instead, we strive to make it feel like a gift. Rather than just telling you point-blank what to eat and what not to eat, we teach you the philosophy behind healthy living and educate you on how to make healthy lifestyle choices.
By the end of the program, making healthy choices will be second nature to you. The knowledge you’ve gained will empower you to make the right choices for your health after the program ends. This, in turn, decreases the likelihood of putting back on all the weight you worked so hard to lose.
What Can Be Done About Loose Skin After Weight Loss?
Many of our patients want to know what can be done about loose skin after completing their weight loss programs. If you’re still relatively young and have lost only a moderate amount of weight, your body may be able to bounce back and tighten up the loose skin on its own within a few months.
However, if mild to moderate loose or sagging skin remains, we can help tighten it up with body contouring and skin tightening treatments. These effective skin rejuvenation techniques have complemented many people’s weight loss journeys.
