Many factors are involved in successful weight loss. Your mindset, diet, exercise and hormones all have to be aligned – and even then it isn’t easy. Our medical weight loss and wellness solution targets the root cause of your weight gain and provides you with the support and guidance you need as you commit to your new, healthier lifestyle.
What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss is an effective weight management program that is based on medical, scientific evidence and designed to target the underlying cause of your weight gain. Throughout the process, you will be guided by trained medical providers who can ensure that you lose the weight and reach your goal in a healthy, positive and sustainable way.
Weight loss & Wellness programs
At Jon’Ric Austin, our comprehensive weight loss and wellness programs are completely individualized. They begin with an initial consultation and examination, so that we can collect a full medical history, perform blood tests, measure your body mass index and create realistic weight loss goals to work towards.
From there, we will devise a weight loss plan just for you, based on your needs and background. This is important because there is not a one-size-fits-all solution that can help everyone lose weight. If you have a slow metabolism, you will require a different approach than a client who needs help with portion control, anxious eating, sugar cravings or emotional eating. As such, the very foundation of your plan will be completely built around you: why you’ve gained the weight and why you’re currently unable to lose it.
Although each medical weight loss plan is personalized, they all include the same basic components:
We believe in the healing powers of real food at Jon’Ric Austin. As such, we will help you create a meal plan centered around whole food that suits your lifestyle, caloric needs and tastes. You will learn how to integrate the eating plan into regular meals with family and friends, so you can continue to enjoy group dinners and evenings out at restaurants with ease.
Once you’ve learned a new way to eat, we will create a cardio and strength-training regimen that fits your lifestyle and will prevent you from getting bored. For example, we may recommend a blend of workouts, boutique fitness classes, social workouts, neighborhood walks, long-distance races and more. Your preferences will largely influence this regimen to ensure that you can stick with it for the long-term.
When people gain weight, there is often an underlying reason – like anxiety or cravings. At Jon’Ric Austin, we identify that reason and often prescribe herbal supplements to help you overcome it. For example, we can use certain supplements to suppress your appetite, minimize cravings and manage anxiety.
Non-invasive body sculpting
For some clients, we may recommend non-invasive body sculpting, such as Coolsculpting or Strawberry Laser Liposuction. Although these aren’t considered optimal ways to lose a substantial amount of weight, they can jumpstart your healthy lifestyle and finesse your final results by targeting stubborn pockets of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise alone.
HCG Weight Loss
HCG, or “human chorionic gonadotropin” is a natural hormone found in small quantities in the human body. This hormone increases in pregnant women, and functions to trigger the body to release the calories in fat needed for a growing baby. The hormone is a natural fat-burner, and could be an effective part of your medical weight loss program. The amount of HCG you need to trigger fat burning is far lower than is found in pregnant women, but exceptionally effective when combined with a carefully planned diet. When you follow a diet that restricts fat intake, the hormone releases the existing fat resulting in rapid, healthy weight loss that is accelerated with HCG.
