Weight Loss Q&A

Why is it so challenging to lose weight and maintain those results?

You're certainly not alone if you struggle to lose excess pounds and keep them off. The foods available via the modern food supply are partly to blame. Grocery stores are full of highly processed food that does little to meet your nutritional needs while adding excess calories to your daily intake. Fast food is readily available around the clock in most parts of the nation.

Our lifestyle is also partly to blame. Many people spend the bulk of their days in front of various screens for work, school, and recreation. This leaves little time for getting outside and staying active. Poor sleep quality and high stress levels exacerbate the problem.

Carrying a significant amount of excess weight can negatively affect virtually every system in your body. Researchers find clear links between being overweight or obese and all of the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Depression
  • Sleep apnea
  • Cognitive issues
  • Liver disease
  • Pregnancy complications

Most troublesome is the fact that people who are overweight or obese have a higher risk of early death than their peers who maintain a healthy weight. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of these health issues.

Medically supervised weight loss begins by focusing on your overall health. A customized weight loss plan designed around your unique health needs means you can challenge your body through increased physical activity without causing harm.

Guidance on all aspects of nutrition is also part of the process. Fad diets might deliver immediate results, but you can find ways to change your approach to food to create lifelong healthy and sustainable habits.

The team at Vcare understands that emotional health and wellness play a critical role in your weight loss journey. Just as physical hygiene preserves physical health, emotional hygiene in the form of taking care of your psychological health affects your emotional health.

Medications might play a role in your weight loss journey, but drug therapy is never the sole approach. Vcare places value on learning how to make meaningful and sustainable lifestyle improvements to move closer to a healthy weight. Call or click today to get started.
