This time of year, it seems like everyone is talking about losing weight. Whether it was a New Year’s resolution, or something you’ve been working on for a long time, weight loss and exercise are certainly a popular topic of conversation around the new year. Whatever the reasons are for these goals, it’s important to know that healthy weight loss can bring so much more than just smaller clothing sizes. While for some, weight loss can be a very daunting thing to face, keep in mind that you can approach it one pound at a time. You don’t have to lose a large amount of weight to see the health benefits. Even small losses can make a big difference.
What To Do When You’ve Tried Everything
Some people find losing weight to be a fairly straightforward thing to accomplish, while others face more setbacks and may need more assistance in the process. If you feel like you’ve tried everything and it’s just not working, a managed weight loss program through NEW You might be the answer. NEW You Weight Loss offers a host of services to cater to all of our patients, so we’re confident that we can help you with whatever your goals are.
What Should My Weight Loss Goal Be?
Everyone has different goals, and they may change based on age or stage of life. While you may have your mind set on a big number, you should always try to approach weight loss in small increments, as it makes it much more manageable. It’s a lot easier to visualize losing 10 or 15 pounds instead of losing 100 pounds. At NEW You Weight Loss, we specialize in endoscopic weight loss procedures, which are all reversible, unlike surgery. They’re designed for people who need a little push in the right direction when it comes to weight loss. Together with our counseling services, we know that we have the right solution for you. We will go over the options that we have available and help you decide what will work best for your goals and your current health.
Even Small Losses Can Improve Your Life
Weight loss is not just about a size or a number. It’s about improving your health. One health concern for those carrying extra weight is heart health. When you have high cholesterol due to being overweight, a fat-like substance may begin to clog your arteries, which increases the risk of heart attacks. A study by the National Institutes of Health showed that even a 5% weight loss can reduce that risk, leading to a healthier heart. Even that moderate weight loss can lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Other benefits include better joint health, overall better comfort and sleep patterns, and even more confidence in how you look and feel on a day to day basis. The best news about all these benefits is that they can start to manifest themselves after even a 5-10% loss.
