Weight Management Q & A

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?

There are a number of factors that contribute to weight gain and the challenges of maintaining a healthy weight. One thing is abundantly clear: Weight loss is not simply a matter of willpower. 

Today’s food sources are far different from what previous generations were exposed to. Between cheap and readily available fast food to highly processed options filling grocery store shelves, and misleading health claims on many labels, it’s no wonder Americans are gaining weight at an astounding rate. 

Modern lifestyles also contribute to the problem. With more time spent in front of screens at home and work, there’s little time left for fresh air and healthy exercise. 

High levels of stress and sleep disruptions further complicate weight loss efforts. Even hormonal imbalances can lead to unexpected weight gain, and blood testing can determine your current hormonal status.  

If you’ve tried numerous diet and exercise plans but been frustrated with your long term results, consider giving medically supported weight management a try. 

What is medically supported weight management?

At Premier Health & Wellness, you have access to a team of medical professionals with the skills and training needed to guide you toward a healthier weight. That process begins with a one-on-one consultation to learn more about your current health and the emotional and lifestyle challenges that might be standing in your way. 

Next, you receive a customized meal plan guide to help boost your nutrition. You learn ways to become more active without having to adhere to a gym schedule or a strict series of workouts. 

You even have access to personalized supplementation to ensure your body has the vitamins and minerals needed to thrive. Vitamin B-12 injections can help boost your energy. There are also weight loss medications that can help you move closer to your goals. 

Why choose medically supported weight management?

A primary benefit of this weight loss approach is the professional guidance and support you receive from day one. Weekly weigh-ins keep you accountable and allow you to celebrate your progress. 

The team at Premier Health & Wellness understands that your journey is unique, and shaped by your strengths, challenges, and numerous other factors. Your practitioner takes the time to get to know you and identify potential roadblocks to success, as well as the alternate paths that can help you get where you need to go. 

There’s also an on-site fitness camp for those who prefer to workout with like-minded women who are on their own weight loss journeys. A certified fitness trainer leads all classes.
