Despite what you may see when you scroll through your social media feed, weight loss is hard. Eating less and moving more may not be enough to help you reach your goal weight.
When you reduce your calorie intake to lose weight, your body fights back by releasing hormones that trigger hunger. Your body also slows down your metabolism, which means you need to eat less to continue to lose weight.
Your genetics, medical history, and culture also influence your weight and affect your ability to drop those unwanted pounds.
Most commercial weight loss plans focus on diet and exercise, not all the other factors that influence your weight. At Aesthetic Lab, medical weight loss management takes all these factors into consideration, designing personalized plans that promote healthy sustainable weight loss.
