5 Reasons Why Medical Weight Loss Can Help You Meet Your Goals

5 Reasons Why Medical Weight Loss Can Help You Meet Your Goals

Have you struggled with your weight off and on for years? If you feel like you’re fighting a losing battle, it’s time for a new strategy. 

Our team at Triad Primary Care in Greensboro, North Carolina uses a science-backed approach to weight loss that makes it a safe and effective journey for you. We don’t subscribe to fad diets or diets that use risky hormone injections. Here’s why our medical weight loss program can help you meet your goals. 

Research-based approach

Some weight loss programs make false claims. Others are unhealthy because they don’t allow you to get enough nutrients. Under the care of our board-certified medical team, you can feel confident that our research-based approach is not harming your body. 

Moreover, those diets don’t help you change long-standing habits. In fact, they often result in a boomerang effect that ends with you gaining more weight. Research demonstrates that following a medically supervised weight loss program gets you real, lasting results.  

Education about the effects of what you’re eating 

Our approach begins with education. Your medical weight loss coach explains what makes some foods unhealthy and how consuming them can lead to diseases and health complications. Gaining this knowledge is vital to achieving your optimal health and weight goals.

In our program, you learn what makes a well-balanced diet and which types of foods to put on your plate. For example, you figure out how much protein your body needs every day and the best dietary sources to choose from. A protein-rich breakfast — unlike sugary cereal — helps you feel full and gives you a good start to the day. 

Medical supervision

Our weight loss program places you under our medical supervision. You have a trained weight loss coach with advanced knowledge — not someone who claims to be an expert after taking a two-week course.

Accountability

You don’t have to try to accomplish the difficult task of losing weight by yourself. We’re your partner in this journey. Your medical weight loss coach checks in with you regularly. 

Your coach also advises you on behavior modification techniques to help you stay on track. Keeping a food journal that includes what and how much you eat is likely part of your program. And if going to the grocery store leads you to fill up your cart with unhealthy choices, ordering healthy foods from your list online can become part of your routine. 

Motivation 

Having a medical weight loss coach on your side gives you a major boost of encouragement. We’re cheering for your progress every day. 

Plus, we help you maintain motivation by ensuring that your new way of eating doesn’t make you feel deprived all the time. We provide and help you find delicious, healthy recipes that leave you feeling full and satisfied.
