One of the reasons that we see so many success stories here at Vail Medical Center & Weightloss is the ongoing support that we provide for our patients. This is especially helpful when it comes to battling the top weight loss mistakes that dieters make when trying to shed pounds. So, what should you do when you’re not seeing results on your weight loss program? Keep reading for some tips to battle some common dieting mistakes.
Mistake #1: Not getting enough quality sleep.
Unfortunately, sleep deprivation is a common problem for American adults. What you may not realize, however, is that not getting enough sleep can prevent weight loss. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body does not produce enough growth hormone, so weight loss becomes more difficult. Using pure medical grade melatonin to reset your sleep cycle and taking CBD to promote better sleep can help. You might also add a medical gut probiotic supplement to stay balanced. All of these medical grade supplements are available at Vail Medical Center & Weightloss.
Mistake #2: Having high, unmanaged stress.
Stress is another factor that can have an impact on your hormonal balance, so it can easily affect weight loss. High stress triggers cortisol production, which can cause overeating, sleep deprivation, and many more issues. Not managing stress is a common weight loss mistake. To combat stress, try using relaxation techniques like tai chi, yoga, or meditation to help quiet stressful thoughts. In addition, Rhodiola root and CBD supplements can help to ease stress.
Mistake #3: Not cutting out sugar and simple carbohydrates.
Cutting out sugars and processed carbs is essential for weight loss. However, this may be easier said than done, as sugar cravings can be intense and frequent. Starting your weight loss program with a 10-day Metagenics cleanse at Vail Medical Center & Weightloss can help mitigate sugar cravings and jumpstart your weight loss.
Mistake #4: Not counting calories.
You must run a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. In other words, you need to consume fewer calories than you burn each day. Following a weight loss program tailored to your needs is ideal. Whether it’s keto, intermittent fasting, or HCG, you need to have a calorie deficit to lose pounds. If you’re having difficulty overeating—even if it’s eating too much of a good thing—you might benefit from lipotropic/B12 shots that can curb your appetite and boost your energy levels.
Mistake #5: Not measuring hormone levels.
When you begin a medical weight loss program, you will have blood tests done to measure hormone levels, blood sugar, and other important stats. If hormones are a culprit for your weight gain—either due to age-related changes or thyroid hormone deficiencies—hormone replacement therapy can help. Here at Vail Medical Center & Weightloss, we offer progesterone/estrogen therapy for women, testosterone therapy for men, and thyroid support for those with insufficient thyroid hormone.
