Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so hard?

Though it'd be simpler if we could blame excess weight on a single villain, those extra pounds are typically due to a combination of factors. These include:

  • Your family history
  • Hormones
  • Lifestyle
  • Eating habits
  • Physical activity
  • Stress

With age, your metabolism also slows down. Plus, unlike when you were younger, you're more likely to spend your days sitting behind a desk, which allows the pounds to creep up.

What is the best way to lose weight?

Achieving permanent weight loss is a balancing act. Over time, the scales will tip in your favor if you burn more calories than you take in. Though it sounds easy, if you've tried dieting before, you know that it isn’t. Wolfson Medical Center is here to help.

Your provider at Wolfson Medical Center creates a plan that includes changes to your diet and exercise routine to help you lose weight — and keep it off for good. They talk with you about making meaningful changes to help you to lose weight.

For example, you could:

  • Start an exercise routine, such as walking, running, bicycling, or swimming
  • Eat a diet rich in nutritious foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products
  • Cut calories by replacing high-calorie foods with low-calorie fare
  • Consider swapping sugar for artificial sweeteners to save a few calories

In general, you'll shed one to two pounds per week by cutting about 500-1,000 calories a day from your diet.

How can I overcome a weight loss plateau?

It’s normal for your weight loss to hit a plateau from time to time. Try not to get discouraged by this setback. Instead, this is the time to amp up your fitness routine.

If this sounds daunting, don't feel like you have to make these changes alone. Your provider at Wolfson Medical Center is here to support you along the way.

What if the weight will not come off in certain areas?

Sometimes, stubborn areas of fat resist your best efforts — no matter how hard you try to lose weight. An option to remove fat in these areas for good is a nonsurgical therapy called SculpSure® body sculpting. SculpSure can remove unwanted fat from your stomach, love handles, and beyond.
