Transition Into a Healthier Lifestyle With Medical Weight Loss
Everyone has different health and wellness goals, as well as challenges, when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With support, motivation, and a plan, a healthy weight is attainable. Weight loss programs allow individuals to change their lives and achieve their goals via weight management, exercise programs, and surgery support. If you are ready to begin your journey toward better health and accomplish your weight loss goals, consider the following options.
Weight Loss Programs & Management
A weight loss journey is personal. You have to want to make a change for yourself and establish why you want to make that change. Although the journey is yours, you don’t have to be alone. In fact, you won’t be. You’ll work with professionals to choose a program that will meet your needs and long-term health goals. At Athena Wellness Center, we use education and individualized plans to empower our patients to change their lives. We do this in a safe environment that focuses specifically on medical weight management. When you are a patient with us, you have educational visits to our center, follow-up visits based on your program, access to nutritional information, customized meal plans, newsletters, and tools to monitor your progress.
Exercise is an important part of weight loss. The professionals at Athena Wellness Center can create individualized exercise programs as well as offer helpful recommendations. Some of these recommendations include workouts that can be done at home including P90X, Brazilian Butt Lift, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer, T25, TurboFire, Turbo Jam, Slim in 6, and Hip Hop Abs. These programs are suggested based on the patient’s current health and physical ability.
Weight Loss Surgery
If you struggle with weight loss, you may want to consider weight loss surgery. Surgery could help reduce life-threatening health problems. There are two main ways in which the surgery helps with weight loss. During malabsorption, food is diverted from a part of the small intestine. When this happens, less calories are absorbed. With restriction surgery, the stomach does not stretch to its normal size, which makes the patient more full when eating a smaller portion of food. After undergoing surgery, it is possible for patients to lose 30%-50% of extra weight within six months. Surgeries may be in the form of either laparoscopy or laparotomy. The Athena Wellness Center understands that weight loss surgery is a major life decision that requires a lot of thought. Our experienced professionals will develop a plan for before and after the surgery to ensure your journey is both positive and successful.
Getting Started With Medical Weight Loss
No two people are alike, so it makes sense that a weight loss program that works for one person isn’t going to work for another. Medical weight loss allows you to choose from certain programs to meet your individual needs. You can customize the process and make the journey about your own personal health as well as your long-term goals.
