Every year, about 45 million Americans go on some kind of diet, hoping that this is the one that will finally work. They even open up their wallets and collectively shell out $33 billion a year believing that some product, pill, or book holds the secret key to success. Sadly, about two-thirds of the American population is still either overweight or obese, despite these efforts.
If you’re one of the disappointed millions, you’ve come to the right place.
At Harmony Med Spa in Sarasota, Florida, we do weight loss differently. We make no promises of magically melting fat, and we offer no fool-proof guide that works for everybody. Instead, we connect you with our team of weight loss experts who focus on you, and you alone. Here’s why that matters.
Why fad diets fail
Fad diets fail for several reasons.
First: Fad diets take a cookie-cutter approach to weight loss. That means they promote one method for all people. And since every human body is different, it’s impossible to create one diet that works for everyone.
Second: Even the diets that go beyond the simplistic formula of calories in vs. calories out by delving into more complex nutritional theories don’t offer enough support to help the average person understand their unique metabolic needs. Without this basic understanding, even seemingly sound diets are doomed to fail.
Third: Fad diets are, quite often, little more than a profit-seeking venture. Whether it’s that buff guy on social media who seems to be talking directly to you, or that national company with a celebrity spokesperson who claims to have transformed their body in just a couple months, they all have one thing in common — they typically want your money more than they actually want your success.
Why medical weight loss works
If you’ve tried everything else and are tired of the frustration and disappointment that comes from following fad diets, we’re here to help. Our medically supervised weight loss program is customized just for you, which means you’ll finally find out exactly how your body loses weight best, and which issues may be hampering your efforts.
We focus on your overall health
The people who create popular diets may know a thing or two about weight loss, but they don’t know you. Diets that recommend the elimination of a certain food group, for example, don’t know what that will do to your body and your metabolism. Just because it worked for them doesn’t mean it will work for you.
At Harmony Med Spa, we start by going over your medical history and your current health. This gives us a clear picture of any issues that may be hindering your weight loss efforts. For example, if you have hyperthyroidism, type 2 diabetes, depression, or are going through menopause, weight loss can be more challenging.
By getting to know you and your health well, we can develop a program that takes every pertinent factor and consideration into account.
We focus on your lifestyle
As your partner in weight loss, we’re interested in everything about you that may impact your ability to reach and maintain a healthy body weight. That includes your age and health status for starters, but it also includes knowing about your job and hobbies as well as your likes and dislikes.
If you sit at a desk all day and rarely exercise, or if you play a pick-up game of hoops on the weekend but veg out during the week, this information helps us understand your metabolism and what you need to do to promote weight loss.
You may be interested in building muscle as you lose weight. If so, we can design an exercise and weightlifting program to complement your diet. And even if you’re not interested in “bulking up,” we can help you improve your muscle tone so your body becomes more efficient at burning excess fat.
If you hate the gym but you love walking, we can work with that, too.
We focus on nutrition
You may think that all diets focus on nutrition, but that’s not necessarily true. While all diets focus on food to some degree, that’s not the same as nutrition.
Your body has unique nutritional needs that differ from your friend’s or your neighbor’s. Our team uses a science-based approach to determine which micronutrients and macronutrients you need to boost your metabolism. We guide you through the process step by step and help you get the right quantity of the right nutrients at the right time.
We also monitor your progress and are available for questions and support along the way.
With our medical weight loss program, you’ll never go hungry, you won’t feel deprived, and you will succeed.
