Weight Loss Q & A

What is weight loss?

Everyone needs some body fat for insulation and energy storage. However, having too much fat can be a risk to your health. With extra body fat, your cardiovascular system must work harder to pump oxygenated blood to your organs and tissues.

To reduce the possible health risks of excessive body fat, Healing Head To Toe offers personalized medical weight loss programs with an emphasis on long-term wellness. These programs are evidence-driven and start with a comprehensive assessment, including lab testing.

Your provider can identify factors that might present challenges during your weight loss program, like hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and diabetes. They take account of these factors while creating your individualized program.

Which strategies can I use for weight loss?

Independent weight loss might sound easier than it turns out to be. Medical weight loss programs at Healing Head To Toe use multiple strategies to reduce your weight at a steady pace, including:

  • Shots
  • Energy-boosting shots, like B12, can assist with weight loss as long as you follow your provider’s instructions for exercise, along with a low-calorie diet.
  • Lifestyle coaching
  • Lifestyle coaching looks a little different for everyone. Your provider might recommend reducing stress, cutting back on alcohol, or modifying your portion sizes.
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Nutritional guidance helps you develop a balanced diet that meets all of your nutritional needs without excessive calories.
  • Fitness coaching
  • Healing Head To Toe offers personal training to help you burn more calories and get into shape.

Following your weight management plan closely lets you work toward your goal weight at a steady pace.

How does my health benefit from weight loss?
