What are the benefits of weight loss?
Fitting into a smaller clothing size is certainly a nice perk of weight loss, but the benefits go beyond getting a new wardrobe. In fact, one of the reasons the team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center offers a weight-loss program is because of the health benefits you get when you lose weight. Losing even a small amount of weight may help prevent you from developing long-term medical issues, such as diabetes or hypertension.
The benefits of weight loss include:
- Improved blood sugar and blood pressure
- Lower cholesterol
- Less joint pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved sleep
Your weight loss may also help you feel better about yourself and boost both your self-confidence and self-esteem, and this, in turn, can impact many areas of your life, including work and home.
What can I expect from a weight-loss program?
The weight-loss program at Advanced Integrated Medical Center is aimed at helping you successfully take the weight off for good. It’s not a fad diet or quick weight-loss program, but one that supports a steady, slow weight loss that helps you make changes to both your diet and lifestyle.
To lose weight, you need to eat fewer calories than your body burns. The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center helps you determine the number of calories you need to lose weight without compromising your health or leaving you hungry.
The team may also talk to you about the importance of exercise when it comes to weight loss. Including regular activity helps you burn more calories, possibly helping you maintain your negative calorie equation for weight loss. The team provides exercise recommendations based on your fitness levels and weight-loss goals.
What type of diet can help me lose weight?
You don’t need to follow a strict or complicated diet in order to lose weight. The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center recommends you follow a healthy balanced diet to reach your weight goals. The diet includes a mix of nutritious foods from all the food groups, including whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, lean sources of protein, and dairy foods.
Weight loss isn’t just about calories but also about nutrition, and the team at Advanced Integrated Medical Center wants you to fill your diet with nutrient-rich foods that support good health and weight loss.
