If you’ve tried all the conventional (and unconventional) diets and nothing budges those numbers on the scale, it might not be your fault. Calories in and calories out certainly matter when it comes to gaining and losing weight, but your body is much more complex than simple addition and subtraction.
Here at Balanced Medical Solutions, we understand the interconnectedness of your body’s systems and the role it plays in your health and weight. That’s why our team here in Hayward, California, approaches weight loss as something more than just a math problem.
Our medical weight loss program is different from anything you’ve ever tried, and if you’re like most of our patients, your eyes will be opened for the first time. Here are just some of the ways medical weight loss assistance stands apart from the fads you’ve tried before.
Supervised medical weight loss assistance
First and foremost, our medical weight loss program is different because it approaches your weight as a medical condition, not a cosmetic issue.
One of our expert providers and specialists will start with a thorough evaluation of your health history and any current illnesses you’re experiencing. This allows us to consider every aspect of your health that may affect weight loss, such as heredity, hormones, diseases, and metabolism.
If any of these are hindering your weight loss, we can get to the root cause.
Customized for you
Once we get to know you, including your lifestyle, your goals, and your unique set of circumstances, we design a personalized weight loss plan — not just a diet — tailored for you. It may involve various combinations of our proven weight loss protocols, supplements, nutrition advice, and exercise.
Sidestep surgery altogether
If you’re one of the 100 million people in America who are struggling with obesity, you may think your only solution is surgery. But our team at Balanced Medical Solutions wants to help you avoid that extreme measure, if at all possible.
Prescription medication when necessary
Calorie intake isn’t the only thing that matters, but it’s a big part of any effort to lose weight (even if other factors are at work as well). If you’re having a hard time curbing your calories, our team may prescribe appetite suppressants to help you keep your hunger under control.
We might also suggest hormone replacement therapy if an imbalance of these critical body chemicals is contributing to your weight gain.
Other treatments are available to help increase your lean muscle mass and boost your metabolism, both of which aid your own body’s natural ability to maintain a healthy weight.
Although losing weight may improve your health, doing it the wrong way can be harmful. Fad diets that make you drop weight too quickly or rob you of important nutritional elements can be dangerous. Our medical weight loss program guards against that.
At Balanced Medical Solutions, we stay alongside you during your entire weight loss journey and monitor your health each step of the way. We make sure your heart and other important organs are handling the changes well, and we can make adjustments if necessary. You won’t get this level of care from your standard meal kit or DIY weight loss program!
