Weight Loss Q & A

How does weight loss improve my health?

You may be motivated to lose weight to improve your appearance and feel more comfortable in clothes, but losing weight is also one of the best things you can do to protect your health.

Your fat cells release hormones and biochemicals that cause inflammation throughout your body and lead to serious health complications such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Some types of cancer

Carrying extra weight also places an incredible amount of stress on your musculoskeletal system. As a result, you’re more likely to develop osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain.

What are the benefits of a weight loss program?

Your medically supervised weight loss at MyHealth LLC begins with a thorough physical exam. Myriam identifies and treats hormonal imbalances that may affect your weight or interfere with weight loss. She also manages chronic health problems and creates a weight loss plan that’s safe for your overall health.

You have a better chance of successfully losing weight and maintaining your healthy weight when you work with MyHealth LLC. Myriam keeps you on track by checking your progress and encourages you when you hit a slump. That type of personal support makes the difference between giving up and reaching your weight loss goal.

What type of weight loss services might I receive?

During your consultation, Myriam learns about your weight loss history, eating habits, and emotional triggers that make you turn to food.

She works with you to create weight loss goals and a diet and exercise plan you can stick with. Myriam tailors your plan to meet your unique needs, but the foundation of most weight loss plans includes one or more of the following:

  • Nutritional evaluation
  • Healthy diet and meal plan
  • Exercise regimen
  • Stress management
  • Counseling
  • Vitamin supplements
  • Prescription appetite suppressants
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Vitamin C injections
  • Lipotropic injections

Lipotropic injections contain several natural substances that support your metabolism and help your body metabolize fat.

Prescription weight loss medications like appetite suppressants can help kickstart your journey. However, they’re always taken alongside diet and exercise, where they can help you quickly lose 8-22 pounds more than diet and exercise alone.

If you’re ready to get serious about losing weight, call MyHealth LLC, or book an appointment online today.
