Should I diet if I want to lose weight?
A vital aspect of both weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight is eating right. Eating right consists of focusing on a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats. You need to find a program that teaches you what and how to eat without restricting whole categories of food, as these diets are hard to sustain over time.
You also need to ensure you eat fewer calories than you burn. If you eat more calories than your body uses, these calories get stored as fat, yet when you use more calories than you consume, your body begins to burn fat, helping you lose weight.
What is the weight loss shot?
SaxendaⓇ is an FDA-approved medication that may help you lose weight. Originally designed to treat type 2 diabetes, it’s now available for those considered obese and people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more or have a BMI of 27 with a condition related to weight, such as high blood pressure.
The weight loss shot is given daily and met to be paired with a healthy diet and exercise.
The medication works by mimicking a hormone that tells your brain you’re full. It also stabilizes blood sugar, keeping it within normal ranges.
When you’re ready for a weight loss program that’s doctor approved, talk you to your physician at Family Medical Specialists of Florida. Call the office or go online to book your consultation and be one step closer to finding a program that works for you.
