Have you tried for years to lose weight on your own? Have you been successful for a time, but then gained all the lost weight back and then some? Have you failed to ever achieve your ideal weight or body fat composition? If so, medical weight loss at Ciao Bella Medical Center & Spa in Newnan, GA is the perfect solution for you.
6 Reasons to Explore Medical Weight Loss
1. You Will Lose Weight for Good
The most compelling argument for investing in medical weight loss is that you will lose weight for good. If you’ve ever lost a significant amount of weight rapidly, there’s a good chance you followed an incredibly restrictive, low-calorie diet to shed weight before an event, like a wedding.
Whether you followed a fad diet or created your own restrictive diet plan, you were doomed to fail as soon as the plan was put in motion. The only way to lose weight for good is to learn healthy habits that support weight maintenance at a lower weight and implement them slowly. There is nothing sustainable about only drinking milk or cabbage soup or maple syrup, hot sauce, and lemon juice.
2. Complete Lab Work
Whether you’re over 30 pounds from your goal weight or you have just five more pounds to lose, you need to know where you’re starting from to achieve lasting health and weight maintenance. When you come in for a medical weight loss consultation, you get several benefits. One of the most important benefits is complete lab work.
Tests you can expect include a complete blood count, lipid panel, thyroid panel, hemoglobin A1C and comprehensive metabolic panel. Each test serves a purpose in diagnosing potential medical-related causes for your weight gain, as well as telling us the effects your current body fat percentage is having on your health and warning us of problems you are at higher risk for due to your weight.
3. B12 Injections and Lipotropic Injections
We don’t just give you the knowledge of how to lose weight and send you off to do it on your own. We offer tools, such as B12 injections and lipotropic injections, to help your body metabolize fat more efficiently, feel more satiated for longer and encourage the catabolism of damaged protein cells so your muscles, with sufficient exercise, can grow stronger and larger than they were before.
Another benefit of B12 injections is that vitamin B12 regulates your mood. When your body is deficient in this essential micronutrient, you may feel such symptoms as depression, anxiety, and insomnia. All of these symptoms, in turn, can cause weight loss. Therefore, you will be both physically and mentally ready to lose weight for good.
4. Prescription Medications
Besides providing you with essential micronutrients to help you lose weight for good, we also offer several prescription medications for you to explore. During your initial consultation, we will review your health and wellness goals with you to determine which, if any, prescription medications are appropriate.
If, for example, you wanted to lose two pounds weekly for three to six weeks, we could prescribe one of our most popular medications, hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin. This natural hormone is responsible for, among other functions, managing your appetite while increasing your fat metabolism and overall metabolism.
5. Personalized Meal Plans
You could be the most motivated person in the world, and you still wouldn’t lose weight for good if you lost weight by eating foods you couldn’t stand. That’s why we create personalized meal plans to help you achieve the permanent weight loss you’re looking for at a pace that is right for you. During your initial consultation, we will review your dietary restrictions so nothing is on your meal plan that will make you ill.
Once we get the results of your full-panel blood tests, we will be aware of any nutritional deficiencies you have. Your meal plan will incorporate healthy, reasonable portions of foods you enjoy that address any nutritional deficiencies you suffer from. Even before you lose a noticeable amount of permanent weight, you will feel better than you have in years once you meet your RDA of nutrients.
6. Personalized Workout Plans
Just like we won’t ask you to eat foods you dislike, we won’t create a workout plan that includes workouts that you despise or cannot perform safely. Depending on your body composition goals, we will provide you a workout plan that includes a combination of cardio for fat loss and resistance training for muscle building.
Keep in mind, resistance training results in stronger muscles, but it won’t result in bulky muscles unless you perform sets of low reps and heavy weights. If you want to increase lean muscle mass, we can accommodate that by building you a workout plan that includes sets of high reps and low weights.
