Weight Loss TreatmentPassaic, NJ
Part of the reason many gimmicky diet plans or exercise routines seem to fail is that they only focus on one aspect of a person’s health – dieting or exercising. However, dieting and exercise alone will not help as much in the area of maintaining a new weight without a focus on healthy lifestyle changes. Our weight loss treatment helps patients find alternatives to unhealthy habits and find healthy alternatives.
Benefits of Our Weight Loss Treatment
Along with those factors, many people do not seek customized weight management plans. Since each person is unique and there are multiple body types, one workout plan may not work for everyone.

What You need to know about Weight Loss Treatment
Losing weight is about more than just getting slimmer or obtaining the “Summer body shape” everyone seems to want. Being overweight or even obese can cause a variety of health problems and serious risks. Health problems that can occur or get worse from being overweight include:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes>
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea and other breathing problems
While obesity is not the only cause for these conditions, it can be a contributing factor. Thus, taking a random approach to weight loss or a new fad diet that has little to no proof will risk other health complications. We can help explain how patients can continue the weight loss techniques into healthy lifestyle choices following the treatment.
Weight loss treatment is only truly effective when the patient actively participates in it. People who do not commit to a weight loss treatment will never see the desired results. With our guidance, we can go over foods to eat and foods to avoid. This does not mean the patient can never have a burger again, rather the patient needs to balance healthier foods with the burger.
Medical Weight Loss Treatment
While it is true that adults face more difficulty in losing weight than younger patients but that does not mean it is impossible. Along with more serious changes to one’s lifestyle, minor changes and actions can help with weight loss treatment as well. Here are a few weight loss tips to further treatment.
Find unique forms of Exercise
Any form of physical activity that gets patients moving and outside can be beneficial in reaching their weight goal. While something such as talking the stairs can be beneficial, people can also find an activity they enjoy instead of only walking/jogging. These can include dancing, swimming, hiking, gardening, cycling and more. Exe3rcise can be a hobby or favorite sport and does not have to be a chore.
Self-Monitor results in Journal
By recording the weight loss results and keeping a food diary, it is easy to keep oneself accountable and monitor weight loss. Patients can also bring the journal with them to a checkup so we can help review their progress.
Avoid certain Foods
Avoiding processed foods is one major way to promote losing weight. Avoid foods with added oils, butter, sugar, fatty processed meats, bagels and baked goods. While these foods are not bad in moderation, having them in excess is not beneficial to one’s overall health and weight loss.
Follow serving Sizes
Following serving sizes on products and recipes can also help calorie control. One way to embrace this idea is for the patient to cook healthy alternatives for favorite foods. Regardless, serving sizes can help to limit the amount of food intake but still give patients the proper amount of nutrition.
Build a support Network
At the Center for Adult Medicine and Preventive Care, we can also help patients take the steps to find a weight loss support group to work with them during treatment. Call us to schedule an appointment and learn more about weight loss treatment today.
