Do Hormones Affect My Weight Loss?


The Relationship between Hormones and Weight

If losing weight is a challenge for you, your hormones are probably the cause! Most people are familiar with the hormones “estrogen” and “testosterone”. These two hormones play a vital role in your body’s response to diet and
exercise.  If either hormone is off balance, you are at risk to have struggles losing weight, and could even be at risk to gain weight. However, estrogen and testosterone are just two of the many hormones that your body relies on for healthy daily functioning.

Hormones are a vital part of how our bodies work; they control internal functions including metabolism, digestion, sleep, and more. Our hormones affect nearly everything that goes on within our bodies, so it’s no wonder they play such a major role in weight loss.

How Hormone-Based Weight Loss Works

The Whitehall Medical Health Center team offers a 5-step medical weight loss plan that is tailored to you based on your body’s specific and unique needs. Your weight loss team will find the exact hormones and habits that are keeping you from losing weight. They will also find any imbalances in your hormones, and correct them. Medical weight loss creates a lifestyle built on healthy choices that will have you dropping extra pounds and keeping them off in the long-term.

Our five stage process

Stage I: Discover

Your medical weight loss team will help you to identify why you’re not losing weight by having lab testing panels done. The lab testing will look at:

  • Appetite Control Hormones
  • Blood Sugar Levels
  • Inflammation Levels
  • Metabolism
  • Sex Hormones
  • Stress Hormones
  • Thyroid Function
  • Vitamin Deficiencies

Stage II: Remove

Once you and your team discover what is hindering your weight loss, you’ll start with a plan to remove those road blocks. You will begin a detoxifying and high-protein meal plan that fits around your personal schedule. Your team will also handpick medical weight loss tools specifically suited to your needs.

Stage III: Accelerate

As you start losing weight and continue to work toward a healthier lifestyle, we help boost your energy and weight loss with special diet foods, weight loss tools, and nutritional supplements. Your counselor will keep track of what works best for your body and adjust if necessary, so you’re able to keep your body on track for weight loss.

Stage IV: Transition

When you reach the transition stage, you will have lost weight and will probably continue to lose several pounds per week. The healthy changes taking place in your body will inspire you to shape and sculpt the outside of your body so that you look as good as you feel. Focus will shift to building muscles and toning problematic areas. We provide body contouring treatments that can be used to tighten skin and get rid of cellulite.

Stage V: Maintenance

At this stage, you’ve reached your goal weight! You’ll meet with your team to celebrate your journey. You’ll take your “after” photo and when you’ve met with your counselor one final time, you can choose to continue our services if you still have weight to lose

Stop wasting time by trying to lose weight on your own.  If you have been trying for years, and haven’t seen any results, then it’s time to try medical weight loss.  Let our team help you receive a weight you have always dreamed of.  Call Whitehall Health Centre and Laser Spa to meet your weight loss team today!
