Dr. Robert Kachko discusses Long Term Sustainable Medical Weight Loss
Why do you gain back the weight you lost?
Hi, this is Dr. Robert Kachko from New York and Stamford Centers for Integrative Medicine, and I’d like to spend some time today discussing long-term sustainable weight loss.
There’s a reason that 95% of people who lose weight from a diet tend to gain it back or gain more weight. That’s because our body responds to severe restriction by changing what’s called our basal metabolic rate.
How can you lose weight and keep the weight off?
In order to really sustainably lose weight, lose it and keep it off, we need to take a personalized approach to your health care because the body that is healthy in an optimal way and is in alignment with all of its personal needs is more likely to be at a healthy long-term weight.
Usually that includes a personalized nutrition plan that one of our clinicians can help you develop.
It includes a personalized exercise plan as well as targeted nutrients, botanicals, and sometimes when necessary prescription medications.
What are the areas to consider to help sustainable medical weight loss?
Our goal with all of these treatments is to address various aspects of your physiology. It can include inflammation and oxidative stress, hormone health, including thyroid health, and your sex hormones like your estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
It can include addressing digestive health and nutrient deficiencies that might result, and include addressing your fluid metabolism so making sure that your body isn’t holding on to excess water weight, which is often a reason why people cannot lose weight.
Similarly, we have to consider the environment in each of your weight loss plans because very often, our body will hold on to excess weight if it’s exposed to all kinds of environmental toxicants and that it’s doing its best to clear.
With this sort of long-term sustainable medical weight loss plan, most people do quite well and are able to keep their weight off forever.
Make an appointment with us today, and we’ll help you on your journey to sustainable well-being.
