Why is weight loss challenging?

Some people have trouble losing weight due to certain health conditions, such as a hormonal imbalance or a mental health challenge like depression. 

With grocery stores lined with processed foods and people leading stressful lifestyles, it can also be hard to keep up with the body’s nutritional needs. Although a balanced diet full of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and lean meats is ideal, it might not always be achievable. 

There is also plenty of diet and exercise advice available, with many claims to help with weight loss. However, it doesn’t always account for the different medical factors that could impact your ability to lose weight healthily and effectively. 

How can medical weight loss help me?

Medically supervised weight loss is a guided program of nutritional, exercise, and lifestyle changes under the care of a skilled practitioner at AGP Family Health Clinic. 

If you’re struggling to shed extra pounds on your own and achieve better health, your practitioner can evaluate your health markers (triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels) and determine if you have any underlying issues that may provide obstacles to your weight loss journey.

After evaluating your health and discussing your goals, they can recommend treatments to support your weight loss efforts. Throughout your program, they also celebrate when you’ve achieved certain milestones and track your progress. 

Once you have finished your medical weight loss program, you will have the strategies and tools you need to support your health. 

What health issues can be improved with weight loss?
