Look and Feel Your Best with Doctor Assisted Weight Loss!

If you’re planning to spend your summer lounging on Madeira Beach, you’ll want to look and feel your best doing so. Devising a healthy weight loss plan with your doctor is the most effective way to ensure that you lose weight in a healthy way.

Ditch the Fad Diets

A number of trendy diets promise overnight weight loss results, but more often than not, they are ineffective and unsafe. Cutting calories may seem like a simple solution, but it can often deprive your body of essential nutrients instead, causing more harm than good for your health.

Fad diets such all promise quick results to a better body, but they are considered “fads” for a reason. These media-promoted diet trends don’t deliver healthy, long-lasting results. In fact, embarking on one of these diets without the supervision of a Madeira Beach doctor is incredibly risky.

When a person reduces his or her caloric intake, the body’s natural response is to slow the metabolic rate. Additionally, because these diets often involve avoiding or overloading on certain food groups, the nutritional intake becomes unbalanced and can lead to symptoms such as headaches, constipation, bad breath, or worse.

A Doctor Approved Weight Loss Plan

One of the most important things to remember when embarking on a weight loss mission this summer is to be realistic in your goals. Weight gain doesn’t happen overnight, and neither does weight loss.

Dr. Fred Leslie of Seminole Family Health Clinic near Madeira Beach can help customize a weight loss plan to help you healthily achieve your goals, including the following components:

  • Physician directed, custom diet plans
  • Nutrition education
  • Low glycemic impact eating
  • Weight checks
  • Medication monitoring
  • MIC injections once a week to increase fat burning
  • Lipo-C injections to enhance liver and gallbladder metabolism
  • Vitamin B-12 injections once a week to increase energy and enhance metabolism

Not every patient will need all these options, but an initial appointment will give your doctor a better picture of what goes to set and how to best help you reach them.
