Why is Medical weight loss different?
Our bodies don't like to change! The body has what is called a "set weight point". This is the point your body believes you're healthiest. There is a hormone called Leptin that is stored in our fat cells. It is the hormone that regulates energy levels in our body and, when functioning correctly, it tells your brain when you are full and don't need to eat anymore.
Lack of Leptin signals the brain that you are hungry and need to eat. Because leptin is stored in your fat cells - when you diet and lose lose fat, your body's Leptin levels also decrease and your brain is tricked into thinking it is starving. This body defense mechanism is designed for your survival however, it is also the primary reason weight loss is extremely difficult and long term weight loss is rare.
We have the tools to help control the severity of the brain's impulses, allowing you to get beyond the cravings.
Managing cravings with prescription medication is one of the primary ways that medical weight loss differs from basic weight loss. We have safe and effective medications that can be used to minimize the intensity of the cravings and allow you to continue on your path to fit and healthy.
