Why is weight loss hard?

Weight loss is hard because eating less and moving more may not be enough to help you drop unwanted pounds.

To lose weight, you need to eat fewer calories than your body burns. However, when you restrict your calorie intake, your body goes into survival mode, releasing hormones that make you feel more hungry.

And, once you start to lose weight, your calorie needs decrease. That means you need to eat less or move more to continue to lose weight.

It’s not lack of willpower that makes weight loss so hard but your body’s physiology.

The team at The Health & Wellness Center understands the frustration many people feel when they try to lose weight on their own. That’s why they offer a comprehensive weight loss program to provide you with the support and tools you need to lose weight successfully and keep it off.

What can I expect from a weight loss program?

Weight loss at The Health & Wellness Center is a 30-day program that includes a proper diet and fitness routine with an appetite suppressant.

During the weight loss program, you follow a healthy protocol your provider outlines for you in detail. When following the protocol, the appetite suppressant reduces hunger while helping you maintain your muscle mass.

The team uses the appetite suppressant because it:

  • Helps you get quick results
  • Boosts your confidence and motivation
  • Controls the need to use food for comfort
  • Supports your transition to healthier living

The appetite suppressant also helps bridge the hunger gap while you adjust to your new weight and lifestyle.

The team at The Health & Wellness Center only recommends an appetite stimulant for weight loss after a comprehensive evaluation.

What other tools can help with weight loss?

In addition to the healthy weight loss protocol and appetite suppressant, The Health & Wellness Center offers hCG injections and lipotropic injections to help you reach your weight goals.

hCG injections

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone women produce during pregnancy. When given for weight loss, hCG injections help the body burn fat for fuel and prevent the loss of muscle.

Lipotropic injections

The lipotropic injections at The Health & Wellness Center contain nutrients that improve your body’s breakdown of fat in the liver. These injections improve weight loss by speeding up your body’s metabolism and helping your body burn more fat.

The team combines lipotropic injections with vitamin B12 to boost your metabolism and energy.

AOD peptide

AOD peptide is a modified version of the human growth hormone (HGH) that increases the breakdown of fat and prevents your body from storing fat. The weight loss injection may also benefit heart and joint health.

Your weight loss plan may also include hormone replacement therapy to restore hormone balance or sermorelin, an anti-aging injection that enhances your body’s use of hormones and nutrients.

Don’t let your frustration keep you from reaching your weight goals. Let the team at The Health & Wellness Center help. Call the office or schedule your weight loss appointment online today.

Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide, commonly sold under the brand names Ozempic, Wegovy and Rybelsus, is an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and as anti-obesity medication for long-term weight management.
