Weight Loss

Why should I care about weight loss?

Being overweight or obese puts a tremendous strain on your body, as your muscles, bones, and organs struggle to operate efficiently. Fat builds up around your organs, and your blood vessels can become clogged with fat and cholesterol, leading to reduced function and heart problems.

Carrying too much weight puts you at far greater risk of developing serious medical conditions such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Certain forms of cancer
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart disease
  • Gallstones
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • Sleep apnea

By losing weight, you can avoid these and other health problems, boost your energy, and live a more rewarding life.

Why do I struggle to lose weight?

Most people find it hard to shed the excess pounds; after all, if losing weight was easy, there’d be no multibillion-dollar diet industry.

Often it’s the fear of depriving yourself of food you find comforting that holds you back, but there may be other factors as well, such as not having the knowledge to make healthy eating choices, or finding it difficult to make time in your busy life for exercising regularly.

In a few cases, there can be underlying health problems that make it genuinely hard for you to lose weight. If you have hypothyroidism, for example, it affects your metabolism and can make you gain weight as well as struggle to lose it.

How can I succeed with my weight loss goals?

Medically managed weight loss is an effective, safe alternative to fad diets for both men and women that ensures you stay healthy while losing a consistent amount of weight. At Vitality Center of Charlotte, the team supports patients with their weight loss by designing customized diet and fitness plans that take into account any pre-existing health conditions or limitations.

The team uses the acclaimed SkinnyMe weight loss programs, which identify any metabolic or hormonal problems you may have that are making it harder to lose weight. Diet plans include hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone programs tailored to the differing needs of men and women, as well as metabolic and ketogenic diets.

Regular checkups ensure that your heart and other organs are working properly and that you’re losing weight at a safe and steady rate. You also get access to prescription medications to help with your weight loss efforts, including:

  • Phentermine (Adipex-P®): an appetite suppressant that stops you craving food
  • Lorcaserin (Belviq®): a serotonin receptor agonist that controls appetite
  • Semaglutide (Ozempic®): a GLP-1 agonist that improves blood sugar levels

Although there are no shortcuts to healthy, sustainable weight loss, with the help of the expert team at Vitality Center of Charlotte, you can achieve your weight loss goals. Call them today to find out more, or book an appointment online.
