Why is weight loss important?

Weight has a huge effect on your body, including your heart and joints. When you’re overweight, it puts excess strain on every part of your body. Losing weight improves the function of your body and reduces stress on your organs, muscles, and joints.

There are a number of reasons why weight loss is vital to living a healthy life. Your confidence and mood are improved when you feel good about yourself. There are other reasons that losing those extra pounds is vital to your health, including:

  • Lower risk of osteoarthritis
  • Increased mobility
  • Decreased back and neck pain
  • Improvement in joint pain
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Decreased blood glucose
  • Decreased risk of stroke

Even losing a small amount of weight has a huge impact on how you feel. The goal of weight loss is to hit your ideal weight for your height. Your body mass index, or BMI, is one of the tools used to determine ideal weight.

What are successful weight loss strategies?

Losing weight isn’t always easy, and fad diets don’t keep the pounds off long-term. To lose weight healthily, you need to make lifestyle changes to keep the weight off.  

There are steps you should take to begin a successful weight loss journey, some of which include:

  • Set small goals
  • Eat healthy, whole foods
  • Get regular exercise
  • Get motivated
  • Ask for help

Keeping a food journal is a way to track your calories and see what dietary choices you’re making. Ease into weight loss, and realize that it isn’t going to happen overnight. You should be committed to sticking with your plan for optimal results.

Do you need medical weight loss?

If you’ve tried losing weight on your own but can’t seem to get rid of those excess pounds, you may benefit from medical weight loss. At Joint Regeneration, the team offers weight loss solutions when you need help.

Medical weight loss works through several different methods, helping you achieve your weight loss goals. Customized meal plans, personalized exercise routines, and weekly weigh-ins are just a few ways the team enables you to get to your ideal weight.

You also get the accountability and coaching you need to stick with your plan, so you can finally reach your goals. Reaching your goal helps improve your joints, mobility, and other aspects of your health that are important to your daily activities.
