Why Is It So Hard to Lose Weight?

iStock_000014590371XSmallWe all know that managing our weight is important in order to maintain good health. But it isn’t always so easy to do, no matter how important it is to slim down. It’s no wonder the weight loss industry generates billions of dollars per year! If losing weight were easy, everyone would be able to do it easily and without any help.

The problem is, most of you have tried one weight loss solution after the other, all with the same results: you either couldn’t lose weight with the program, or you quickly regained what you did lose. There are several reasons why losing weight may have been difficult for you:


  1. It’s about the “program”, not your health. Do you ever join one of those programs, hyped on television by some celebrity, and then quickly get the feeling it’s more about selling you their products than about your health? That’s because it is. Many of those popular weight loss programs are mostly designed to make money off of your desperation. It’s important to realize that weight loss is about your health, not a marketing gimmick to benefit someone else! And that brings us to our next point…
  2. Weight loss is a medical issue. In most cases, your problem isn’t that you simply eat too much. That’s the message you keep hearing from people who want to sell you on their particular food plan. The truth is, weight loss is much more complicated than that. You could have an underlying health problem, such as a thyroid issue, or you might need to boost your metabolism. Seeing a doctor who can figure out your body’s particular needs is a much more proactive step than joining yet another trendy, celebrity-endorsed program.
  3. Your goals could be wrong. We all know every woman is not necessarily designed to be a petite size 2, and every man is not capable of achieving an Adonis-like figure. Yet much of the time we focus on unattainable goals based solely on matching up with the media’s ideal of beauty. Yes, losing weight is going to make you look better. But the focus should be on your health, living a long and fulfilling life, and feeling as good on the inside as you look on the outside. When you get your priorities in order and you’re able to visualize an attainable goal, it’s easier to stay motivated with your weight loss efforts.

You’ve probably already learned that one trendy diet or exercise fad after another is not doing the job. Rather than waste any more time or money on programs that don’t work, why not consult with a medical doctor who can help you learn what your unique body needs to stay healthy and youthful? Medical weight loss can help you finally get that weight off, and keep it off for good. Call us to schedule a consultation, and you’ll be well on your way to a weight loss solution that actually works.  We are your Temecula weight loss experts!
