It’s a story we hear every day: I’ve tried everything! Sometimes I lose a bit of weight, but it always comes back. Some programs didn’t work at all! What am I doing wrong? How can I lose weight and keep it off for good?
The thing is, the weight loss industry makes billions of dollars per year for a reason! If it were easy, everyone could do it easily, keep the weight off, and the industry would lose all of their customers. But as we all know, that’s not the case. So what is the secret to long-term weight loss – meaning, keeping the weight off for good?
Don’t focus on gimmicks. We wish there were just some odd little secret or trick that, once we learn it, will magically transform our figures and our lives. And marketers know this. They try to sell you one gimmick after another. But the truth is, weight loss is about your health, not fads. There’s no secret, magic pill, food, or exercise technique that will bring about sudden and dramatic results.
Weight is a medical issue. In some cases, there are underlying medical conditions that can make weight loss more difficult for some people. That’s why your first stop should be a medical weight loss doctor. We can screen you for health conditions that might affect your metabolism, and then help you learn what to do about it.
Accept your body type. In order to succeed at weight loss and keep the weight off, you must set reasonable goals for your body type. Not everyone can be a size 0, and setting unrealistic goals will only lead to disappointment, damaged self esteem, and temptation to give up. Instead, we will focus on setting goals that are realistic for you, and help you learn to love your body as you get healthier.
