Each January, after ringing in another new year, about 40% of Americans resolve to lose weight and adopt healthier eating habits, and half of us are determined to get more exercise.
If losing weight and becoming a healthier, slimmer version of yourself is part of your plan for 2021, Dr. Timothy Scott Beck and the team at Life Point Medical in Clayton, Georgia, can help you achieve your goals. Discover how we can help support your weight-loss efforts with everything you need to drop pounds and increase energy.
Why it’s hard to lose weight
For many people, long-term weight loss is not an easy feat. You start off strong, restricting your diet, walking 3 miles a day, and hitting the gym after work. But, that’s often a schedule and a lifestyle that’s hard to maintain for weeks and months at a time.
Furthermore, according to medical experts, diets frequently fail because they have an end date. Your restrictive eating plan and rigorous workout schedule only lasts for 30 days, or until you lose your desired number of pounds, and then it’s simply too easy to fall back into old habits and routines.
Take a holistic approach to weight loss
Here at Life Point Medical, we see diet and nutrition as part of a holistic approach to making lifestyle changes that last. To support you in your efforts to do so, and to help you continue living a healthy, fit life long after your New Year’s resolutions are a distant memory, we offer annual wellness exams, Lipo-B12 injections, and intravenous (IV) hydration.
Annual wellness exam
Before you begin any type of weight-loss or exercise program, it’s important to schedule an annual wellness exam so Dr. Beck can assess your overall health. Before you stop eating carbs or adopt a vegan diet, it’s a good idea to ensure that you’re free from any underlying health issues that could inadvertently cause health problems, such as low energy and immune deficiencies.
At your annual exam, Dr. Beck reviews your medical history and talks to you about your weight-loss goals. With a complete picture of your blood pressure, weight, and other vital information, he can then recommend the best approach to helping you reach your goals.
He can also recommend supplemental treatments to address any underlying conditions and help you lose weight safely and effectively.
Lipo-B12 injections support the fat-burning systems in your body, and therefore, can help you lose weight. These lipotropic shots are designed to target fatty deposits so you can more easily release stored fat.
The nutrients in Lipo-B12 injections offer a number of weight-loss benefits, including:
- Detoxing your liver
- Speeding up fat-burning processes
- Preserving muscle mass
- Balancing your immune system
- Helping your body absorb nutrients
- Boosting energy
Lipo-B12 injections can also help you sleep better and improve your mood, so you can feel good while you adjust to living a healthier lifestyle.
Intravenous hydration is a way to replenish lost fluids and vitamins directly into your bloodstream. IV hydration has numerous health benefits, including keeping your body hydrated so you can lose weight the healthiest way possible.
During increased activity, if you don’t proportionally increase your water intake, you could end up feeling fatigued, not urinating enough to eliminate toxins and waste, and literally draining yourself of fluids. If you’re exercising more often and more intensely, IV hydration can support your weight-loss routine and keep you feeling rejuvenated and energetic.
Personalized weight-loss plans are essential
When it comes to losing weight, there’s no single way to do it. What works best for a friend or family member may not work for you.
Dr. Beck makes it a point to get to know you and your unique needs, so he can best serve and support you in your health and wellness goals. If you’ve resolved to lose weight this year, he recommends healthy lifestyle and nutritional changes you can make today and stick to beyond a finite time frame.
