As summer approaches, many people kick-start weight loss programs to get ready for warm-weather clothing. But if you had trouble losing weight on your own, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with weight loss and all too often get caught up in fad diets or other trendy weight loss programs.
Family Medical Center offers a physician-managed weight loss program to help you get ready for swimsuit season! Our weight loss services utilize evidence-based methods and physician support to help you reach your weight loss goals.
The Benefits of Weight Loss
Reaching your target weight can provide more significant benefits than you might first assume. In addition to gaining a summer-ready body, you can get the following benefits to your overall health and wellness:
Higher energy levels
When you carry around extra weight, you’re consuming extra energy. So by shedding a few pounds, you can boost your energy levels.
Foods that are linked to weight gain, namely those that are high in fat, sugar, and salt, can lead to heightened cortisol (the stress hormone) levels. Maintaining proper nutrition as a result of your weight loss regimen can lower cortisol levels and reduce stress.
Through exercise for weight loss, you’ll gain endorphins and other “happy” chemicals that have a mood-boosting effect.
Better joint health
Excess pounds place added pressure on your joints. So by losing even just a few pounds, you can reduce strain on the joints and lower your risk of arthritis.
