The Weight Loss Battle
Millions of Americans greatly struggle with weight loss and cycle through periods of weight gain and loss continuously throughout their lives. Most never escape the struggle and eventually become so dis-encouraged that they quit looking for answers. Some continue to look for the latest and greatest diet fad, hoping a miracle awaits around the corner. Typically, these people have tried many diets and programs throughout their lives and have lost significant weight but also have gained it back a few months later.
There are a couple main flaws to the various popular weight loss programs. The first and most obvious flaw is that they are not evaluating weight gain as a medical problem. Weight gain is almost always the result of some type of physiologic change in the body and is the end result of a medical condition. Common medical conditions that result in weight gain include diabetes, hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, hormone deficiencies or imbalances, and GI conditions. Some diet programs completely overlook the medical side of weight gain and obsess over calorie counting such as Weight Watchers. This strategy is severely flawed and almost always leads to long term failure. Yes, if you put your body in a caloric deficit you will lose weight, but this approach does not examine underlying sex hormone levels, cortisol levels, thyroid levels, epigenetic factors, nutrients, or your body’s physiology and psychology. So yes, you lose weight in the short term but sacrifice your long term health and optimal physiology.
The second main flaw is focusing on short term results instead of long term outcomes, lifestyle and behavioral changes. What do you really accomplish by losing some weight very quickly but gaining it back a few months down the line? This approach often leaves patients very frustrated and they blame themselves for lack of discipline but it actually isn’t their fault at all. The program set them up for failure by not installing fundamental changes and working with the patient’s own physiology. Sustained weight loss is the exact opposite of fad programs and diets and is designed to focus on your overall health, which in turn results in weight reduction. Now that we know what doesnt work and why most patients are failing in these programs, let’s take a look at what does work.
