Want to lose weight in a way that is successful?

Are you tired of losing weight and then gaining it all back again?

If you can relate, then this blog will help you understand the benefits of medical weight loss and wellness, how these concepts can be incorporated, and how they can benefit your overall health.

What is Medical Weight Loss? 

When there is a lot of weight to lose or someone wants a more structured, medically supported program, Medical Weight Loss is an option. 

There are many components to a great Medical Weight Loss program that we talked about in our previous blog. 

Whatever type of weight loss program you choose, having one that incorporates wellness into it is of utmost importance.

Benefits of Medical Weight Loss  

The benefits of weight loss can be widespread from better mobility, confidence, improved mental health and more. 

When you choose to utilize a Medical Weight Loss Program, and especially one that focuses on your being holistically, you can have deep and lasting results. 

Your results can extend far beyond the weight that is shed. 

Take a look at these benefits to a comprehensive Medical Weight Loss Program.

  • Improved Health Outcome. You may see improved blood lipids, cholesterol, blood pressure, heart function, and/or managed blood sugars. 

  • Enhanced Quality of Life. When weight is lost and healthy habits are put in place you can expect to begin to start having the ability to do things you couldn’t before.  Walking for longer periods of time, taking up hobbies you may have given up, becoming stronger for everyday life. 

  • Psychological and Emotional Well-being. Losing weight can really help increase your mood or emotional well-being. By looking at all areas of your life, you can start to not just lose weight but also old thought patterns that inhibit your progress.  You can gain tools to help you put down lies that have been holding you back. You can start to consider how to heal places in your life that may not have ever been addressed.

Medical Weight Loss Effectiveness  

Losing weight with Medical Weight Loss Programs has been seen to be an effective method for weight loss.

It is important to have the support of a medical provider when starting these weight loss programs that use medications to increase weight loss. 

Make sure that you are a good candidate by talking with your medical provider before starting any program and medication to decrease any adverse outcomes. 

What is Wellness?

What do we mean when we say “wellness?” This word can have a variety of meanings to different people. 

The National Institute of Health defines it as “a holistic integration of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, fueling the body, engaging the mind, and nurturing the spirit (1). 

For us, at Idaho Nutrition, wellness means any practice or habit that allows you to live more fully. To have the ability to thrive in your life, instead of just surviving.

It requires self-reflection to know what it is that would bring you joy and where you need healthier habits to begin thriving. And it requires intentionality to plan for these practices to occur on a regular basis.

  • Address Mental Health. Utilize counselors, therapists, etc.

  • Incorporate Mindfulness and Stress Management with yoga, breath work, gratitude journals, or massages.

  • Look at your Spiritual Life. Adding things like meditation, prayer, or participating in organized religion may be beneficial.

  • Get good quality Sleep.
