Why is it so hard to lose weight?

If you find it difficult to lose weight, you’re not alone. According to CDC data, roughly 70% of all adults over the age of 20, living in the United States, were either overweight or obese.

There may be many reasons that cause you to struggle with weight loss, including genetics or an underlying health issue. Indeed, many adults struggle to lose weight despite reducing calories and exercising regularly.

What types of methods are used for weight loss?

The LibertyMed Health Group team takes the focus off of weight loss and puts it back on your health. They create a comprehensive weight loss plan to address the root problem that causes your weight gain.

During a virtual consultation, the team conducts a thorough examination to assess your overall health. This assessment may include a physical exam and review of your medical history and other health complaints.

Your doctor at LibertyMed Health Group then uses this information to create a plan focused on improving your overall health through lifestyle modification, diet, and exercise. Your unique course of action may also include nutrition counseling to help you understand how food affects your health.

When you focus your energy on improving your overall health, instead of restricting your food choices and working out for hours, the results are more favorable.

What other benefits can I expect?

While weight loss may be a bonus when you focus on improving your health, reaching your ideal weight also offers several other health benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Optimized metabolism
  • Boosted self-confidence
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Improved sleep

Weight loss also improves blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels — all of which reduce your risk of chronic conditions like hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

LibertyMed Health Group’s approach to weight loss offers you the opportunity to reset your metabolism and ensure healthy, long-term weight loss. The team’s goal is to address multiple aspects of your health, which a simple fad diet or exercise plan cannot do.
