How To Jump Start Your New Year’s Resolution with a Medical Weight Loss Program

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2015 and 2016, almost 40% of American adults were classified as obese. If you’re among them, you’ve likely tried to lose weight. “Lose weight” might even be your New Year’s resolution! 

At Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss and Wellness Center, we take a different approach to helping you lose weight. Dr. Latisa Carson and our team know that you’re an individual. Your metabolism, life, and overall health are unlike anyone else’s. We work with you to develop a medically supervised weight loss plan that works for you and that will continue to work for you for life. 

Health risks

One of the reasons health care professionals put so much emphasis on weight loss is that extra weight is associated with numerous health risks. Just a few of the health conditions associated with being overweight include: 

We want to help you avoid those conditions and help you feel the best you can. Maintaining a healthy weight reduces your risks, and you may find that you’re simply more comfortable. 

It’s diet and exercise, plus…

When it comes to weight loss, nutrition is critically important. Dr. Carson helps you develop a plan that uses real food that meets your metabolic needs and your preferences. 

You may think that you have a good grasp of nutrition, but our weight loss mentors can help you understand how the principles of nutrition apply to your unique metabolic profile, as well as how to incorporate more healthful foods into your diet comfortably and deliciously. 

Everyone should exercise. Exercise is good for your physical health, of course, but it also has a positive impact on your mental health. 

If you “hate to exercise” we will help you find activities that are enjoyable and can give you the positive benefits of movement. Whether you find you enjoy walking outside, or you discover that yoga is more your speed, adding exercise to your life is likely to offer unexpected satisfaction. 

Additional tools

Dr. Carson may recommend medications to help control your appetite, or vitamin supplements to support your efforts. Since this is a medical weight loss program, you can expect blood work and a comprehensive look at your overall health. 

If you’re ready to approach weight loss from a health care perspective and make this year’s resolution stick, book an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Carson. You may be surprised by her compassionate, medically-based approach! 

You can schedule your appointment using our online booking tool, or you’re welcome to call us at 619-274-8104 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Thursday or between 8 am and 3 pm on Friday. We are looking forward to accompanying you on a journey to good health!
