Most people realize that healthy eating along with exercise can help you manage your weight, but real-time weight loss isn’t always that simple. You might not be familiar with the principles of nutrition, or you might have a medical condition or hormone imbalance keeping you from seeing results. There’s also no shortage of misinformation out there about weight loss, and one-size-fits-all diets don’t work for every body.
With so much trial-and-error, giving up on your weight loss goals may seem tempting. Perhaps it’s time to try medical weight loss, an evidence-based and personalized service that can put you on the right track to achieving your weight goals. Medical weight loss isn’t meant to be restrictive, and your main objective is to make permanent and sustainable modifications to your behaviors.

Some of the most popular weight loss tactics rely on strategies that ultimately counteract themselves. Rebound weight gain is common and tends to happen after you lose weight with a highly restrictive diet with an extreme caloric deficit. In fact, only about one in five people who lose weight will maintain those results.
Instead of restricting you for a given amount of time, medical weight loss aims to alter your eating habits permanently for lifelong results. Your program includes individualized diet recommendations that satiate your hunger without requiring you to undereat or later leading you to overeat.
Your hormones play a significant role in your metabolism. When you have an imbalance, weight loss can be a real challenge.
Medical weight loss at F.I.T Medical Weight Loss & Optimization accounts for any hormone imbalances influencing your weight and your lack of results. Bioidentical hormone therapy may be added to your individualized program to correct a hormone imbalance that’s interfering with your weight loss.
