One of the questions we ask our clients when they are deciding if a weight loss center is the right fit for them, is what their current weight loss strategy is? Most of our prospective clients answer with fad diets or temporary changes to fitness and diet. Most of these changes are abandoned because they don’t deliver results, or because they are simply too extreme or restrictive to be a realistic long-term lifestyle change.
Why You Need A Medical Weight Loss Strategy
Whether you have lifelong weight to shed, baby weight, or the slow 5 or 10 pounds that crept on every year for the last decade—you need a medical weight loss strategy to succeed. Consider any other goals you set in your personal or professional life. Odds are, you do more than just set a goal—you develop a personalized strategy designed to help you achieve your results. There is a proven science to weight loss and not every one’s journey should be the same. Working with a medical professional can allow you to reach your weight loss goals and stay there.
Whitehall Health Centre’s 5 Step Approach
At Whitehall Health Centre, we have developed a 5 Step Weight Loss Program designed to help you take a holistic approach to your health. The reason this approach works is because along the way you learn your specific roadblocks to weight loss and then develop the skills required to lose the weight, and keep it off.
Stage I: Discover
Stage I begins with a full medical assessment to provide insight on your overall health. This goes far beyond getting BMI or the number on a scale; it includes full lab work when appropriate to determine any hormonal imbalances and weight loss roadblocks.
Stage II: Remove
This is where we begin the process of removing the roadblocks to your weight loss. Medical weight loss is all about an individual plan of action, because everyone’s roadblocks are unique.
Stage III: Accelerate
In this stage, we kick things up a notch. You are now at a place where you have experienced some positive results and your body chemistry is likely to have balanced out quite a bit. Now it is time to reassess, and redefine your workout.
Stage IV: Transition
At this point, the bulk of your weight has come off—and now it is time to fine tune. This is where we will begin to transition from weight loss, to toning and sculpting your body.
Stage V: Maintenance
This stage is exciting! You have lost the weight, and now have the tools to make lifelong healthy choices. You and your weight loss advisor will celebrate your hard earned success, and map out an ongoing maintenance plan.
