Losing weight and reaching your body goals won’t just make you look and feel better; it will make you healthier. If you’ve been trying to lose weight but just can’t reach your goals on your own, we can help. At Anazao MD in Steamboat Springs, CO, we offer medical weight loss treatment plans that can help you finally lose that extra weight and keep it off for good.
What Is Involved in Medical Weight Loss?
When you take the step to seek out the help of experts who can assist you on your weight loss journey, you will get to experience all of the benefits that accompany a medical weight loss treatment plan. This treatment plan takes a multi-step approach to weight loss that involves different techniques and treatments so that you can attain your goals.
Losing weight can be difficult to do on your own, but once you get the assistance of an expert who knows exactly what to do and how to help you lose the most amount of weight most as safely and quickly as possible, you will finally achieve real results.
The First Step: Your Consultation
Your initial consultation here at our office is one of the most important parts of this process because it signifies the initiation of your weight loss journey. When you take the first step to not only schedule an initial consultation but attend that appointment and meet with one of our experts to discuss your weight loss goals, you’ve already begun the process.
This consultation is important because it allows us to learn more about you, your preferences, your health history, your weight loss goals, and any roadblocks that have kept you from losing weight in the past. Once we confirm that a medical weight loss treatment plan is right for you, we will take the steps to custom tailor your treatment so that you can lose the weight you want and need to look and feel your best.
Attending Weekly Meetings
Each week, we will schedule one-on-one meetings to assess your progress and monitor your blood pressure and vitals to ensure that you are responding well to your weight loss protocol. These meetings also act as a built-in form of accountability that can help you stay consistent during the process. They also provide you with the space to ask any questions regarding your weight loss, your treatment plan, and your progress.
Following a Weight Management Plan
There are different techniques and treatments that we can add to your medical weight loss plan to help you achieve results quickly, but at the end of the day, most of the work will happen at home. We can help design a weight management plan that incorporates the necessary changes you need to make regarding both your diet and fitness routine so that you have the tools and information to do what it takes to achieve your goals.
Changing Your Diet
Diet is one of the most important factors in the weight-loss equation, so if you’re not eating the right foods, or even if you’re eating too much of the right foods, it will stall your progress. We can give you tips and techniques that can help you transform your diet and experience real results.
Getting Enough Exercise
Another important part of reaching your weight loss goals is establishing a fitness routine. Incorporating fitness into your weekly routine is a necessary component to losing weight and reaching your goals quickly and developing a healthier body composition, building lean muscle mass, and warding off weight-related diseases.
Eating the Right Foods
There are different blogs, social media accounts, and even friends who will tell you what you need to eat to lose weight, but at the end of the day, the best advice will always come from a nutritionist who is skilled in creating meal plans. We offer meal plans designed by nutritionists from New Direction in Optavia.
New Direction is a complete weight management system that includes specific foods designed to help you lose weight. Soups, protein shakes, protein bars, and even caffeinated beverages are just some of the many options this company offers. Adding some of these options to your weekly meals can help you substitute high-calorie unhealthy foods for lower-calorie healthier options that will help you lose weight and keep you satiated.
These meal replacement options contain healthy fats that will promote increased energy as well as the macro and micronutrients you need to support your metabolism as you walk along your weight loss journey.
Optavia is another line of meal replacement options that includes bars, shakes, smoothie mixes, and even healthy macaroni and cheese. Once you experience how good healthy foods make you feel, you won’t want to go back to eating those unhealthy options.
These meal replacement options can help you lose weight because they will provide you with alternative options to eat during those times that you crave unhealthy food. Instead of reaching for a candy bar filled with empty calories, for example, you can reach for a healthy chocolate protein bar or a protein shake full of the nutrients you need.
Utilizing Weight Loss Supplements
A medical weight loss plan will require that you put in the work at home but will also give you all the tools to lose the necessary amount of weight. With our weight loss plans, we offer different supplements that we can incorporate to help promote weight loss, increase your metabolism, increase your energy levels and provide your body with the vitamins and nutrients that it needs to maintain optimal health as you lose weight.
Restricting calories can deplete your energy levels, but these supplements do just the opposite and will work to increase your energy levels. You’ll be able to make it through your workouts, follow your meal plan, and still have the energy to spare. Our experts can choose the right supplements for you based on your goals, your health, and your needs.
Our Weight Loss Supplements
Our weight loss supplements are FDA-approved and can help you with your goals by suppressing your appetite, keeping cravings at bay, and increasing your energy levels. We will administer these injectables as needed during your weight loss journey. They will also promote optimal health by delivering different amino acids, vitamins, and minerals directly to your bloodstream. These supplements include different ingredients, including:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B5
- Vitamins B & D
- Lipo Amino Acid
Weight Loss Injections
Our weight loss B12 and B12 MIC injections qualify as lipotropic injections and use amino acids to promote liver health and increased metabolism. They can help target stubborn fat throughout the body while simultaneously increasing energy levels. Patients who are looking for a way to burn fat can utilize these injections and will get the added benefit of increased energy from the treatment process.
Taking Your Body to the Next Level
Once you reach your weight loss goals, we can help you do what it takes to maintain that weight loss long-term. We can recommend additional treatments that can help you target pockets of stubborn fat that won’t respond to your diet or fitness efforts. We offer SculpSure, a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment that takes 25 minutes to complete.
SculpSure uses heat energy to break down fat cells, and your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over time. You’ll see permanent results within six to 12 weeks of your treatment. Additionally, if you have pockets of cellulite, we can treat them with QWO, a minimally invasive injection-based treatment that can help break down those fibrous bands that contribute to the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks.
