If you are considering this plan, reach out to your local Medi Weightloss provider and ask specific questions about cost and insurance before you invest. You might also want to ask to see a sample meal plan to see if it is something that you feel you can follow. In addition, you can speak with your healthcare provider to get recommendations and suggestions. The more questions you ask, the more likely you will be to find a program that fits your needs.
When it comes to dieting and exercise, there is a lot of talk of ‘willpower’. This can backfire and make a person feel bad about them. For example, a person that has tried to unsuccessfully lose weight over and over again will end up feeling they have no willpower or are lazy. With a bit of careful thought, one can see why such an assumption is irrational. How can a person that has tried dieting over and over again be lazy? In the same way, people that talk about willpower tend to have an extreme and radical view of dieting and exercise, and their militant approach to weight loss might not apply to everyone.
It seems so simple: Eat less, exercise more and lose weight. But for many severely overweight people, diets and exercise just do not work. Fortunately, we have the solution - bariatric surgery, which has a near 100% success rate in sustained weight loss. And for those who wish to try non surgical techniques at weight loss, we offer comprehensive programmes in both lifestyle and medical (tablet) treatments.
I have helped numerous clients succeed in significant weight loss journeys that involve losses of over 20-30 kg in body fat over the space of 1-2 years or more. I actually find such longer term journeys more rewarding as they allow me to teach my clients about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle habits on their physiology. This not only helps them, but also helps those closest to them as well.
