Although a “simple solution” to weight loss would seem to be just eating fewer calories and exercising more, the truth is far more complicated. Not only are the causes of excess weight gain spread across a wide variety of culprits, but they also vary greatly from one person to another.
Because the causes of weight gain vary across such a broad spectrum, it’s no wonder that there is not just one solution that works for everyone. More than 165 million people in the United States are overweight or obese, and most of these people have tried at some point to shed their unwanted pounds.
Keep reading to learn more about medically supervised weight loss at Revive Clinic and why it has proven effective for so many.
The Many Causes of Obesity
Even if it were simple for people to just eat less and move more to lose weight, it would still be difficult to maintain this balance between caloric intake and activity level. Then, when other factors that are not so easy to control are thrown into the challenge, the difficulty of finding a weight loss program that works becomes clear.
Some of the factors that contribute to excess weight (and such difficulty losing it) include:
- A chronic lack of sleep
- Medical issues
- Some medications
- Social and economic factors
When it comes to calories, it’s more difficult today than ever before to properly and accurately track exactly how much you’re taking in. This is due in large part to the additives and hidden sugars in many foods, not to mention nutrition labels that can be difficult to interpret.
Age and Genetics
Your age and genetic makeup partially determine your metabolism and how many calories you need to consume on a daily basis. These factors can also affect how much your body holds onto fat and other aspects that influence weight gain and loss.
Pregnancy can cause weight gain, too; while it’s normal for women to gain some weight as their bodies nurture a growing baby, the body can also hang onto that weight long after birth.
Sleep and Weight Loss
Many studies point to evidence that the body burns fat while a person sleeps, and many other critical functions take place to help maintain weight while people are in Dreamland.
Sleep affects hormone level balances, which can affect everything from appetite to the level at which the body burns fat. It can also affect cravings: When people are tired, they crave more carbohydrates and empty calories.
Lifestyle, Medications, and Other Factors
Lifestyle and activity level are related; in order to maintain an adequate level of caloric burn, you must get enough exercise and stay active. A healthy, active lifestyle is paramount in any weight loss program. Family members tend to share similar habits, good or bad, when it comes to lifestyle.
Some medications may influence a person’s success with weight loss, too. Others may lead to weight gain. In addition, some medical conditions can cause weight gain, making even the best weight loss programs challenging to follow. These can include:
- Cushing’s syndrome
- Thyroid disease
- Prader-Willi syndrome
In addition, conditions that impact movement, such as asthma, chronic pain, physical injuries, and many others, can make it extremely difficult to maintain an active lifestyle.
The Best Weight Loss Program Is a Medically Supervised One
Because so many factors influence a person’s ability to lose weight, the most successful, safest, and best weight loss programs are supervised by medical professionals.
A physician-supervised weight loss program ensures that patients are not only given the best opportunities, tools, and support to succeed but that they also stay safe and healthy during their journey to slim down.
Revive Clinic proudly provides the Olympia Pharmacy Weight Management System to individuals who are ready to end the up-and-down roller-coaster of weight loss and gain.
People find tremendous success with this program, which offers a combination of medications, low-calorie food options and guidance, and vitamin cocktails to help them lose fat without feeling deprived.
Revive Clinic’s Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Program
When you come to Revive Clinic for weight loss, you’ll have access to an entire team of professionals who are dedicated to helping you reach your goal medically and safely. The Olympia Pharmacy Weight Management System offers three medications as prescriptions for patients on the program. These medications are:
- Lipo-Trim SL
Lipo-Trim SL is a sublingual oral spray that is taken once per day to help control food cravings. It also supports the immune system and may even boost energy levels and increase a person’s metabolic rate.
Naltrexone is taken orally once each night to enhance the body’s ability to burn fat. It also improves mental clarity and focus, reduces feelings of hunger, and subdues a person’s appetite.
Sermorelin is an injected medication that is taken at night. Its primary function is to stimulate the natural hormone production of the body. It can also help patients’ bodies recover after strenuous workouts. Sermorelin may restore and regulate a person’s natural sleep cycles, as well.
Why Choose a Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program?
