Weight Loss Q & A

What are the health benefits of weight loss?

Nothing boosts your confidence more than being able to fit into your favorite pair of jeans again. But you get many benefits beyond your looks when you lose weight.

Some of the health benefits of weight loss include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved blood sugar
  • Reduced risk of chronic conditions such as sleep apnea and diabetes
  • Improved sleep
  • Less pain

You may also experience mental health benefits when you reach your weight loss goals, including improved self-esteem and a lift in mood.

If you’re ready to drop those unwanted pounds, Holly at HAR Wellness can help you reach your weight goals and improve your health.

What diet can help with my weight loss?

Holly uses the HCG diet to help with your weight loss. HCG is a hormone produced by women during pregnancy. For weight loss, this hormone may help control your appetite and stimulate fat loss.

While following the medical weight-loss plan, Holly provides HCG injections, as well as a structured diet plan that outlines what you can eat and when. The weight loss diet consists of lean sources of proteins, healthy vegetables, and a few select fruits and starches.

The amount of time you follow the diet depends on how much weight you need to lose. Holly can determine how long you need to follow the plan during your weight-loss consultation.

Once you’ve lost the weight following the medical weight-loss program, Holly provides you with a maintenance plan to help you keep the weight off.

What medications can help with my weight loss?

Holly understands how difficult it is for many people to lose weight and offers medications to help support your efforts. Weight loss medications work by either preventing you from absorbing the calories from the food you eat or helping you feel full faster so you eat less.

Holly can determine the best type of weight loss medication for you based on your medical history, weight loss goals, and personal weight struggles. She closely monitors you while you’re taking the medication and makes adjustments as needed.

Many people struggle with weight loss, but you don’t have to lose weight on your own. For medical help for your weight loss, call HAR Wellness today, or book an appointment online.
