It is estimated that about two-thirds of American adults are either overweight or obese. Hence, it is not very surprising that a lot of Americans seek for a quick and easy fix to their weight problem. And perhaps the most common method to fix this problem is to undergo a weight loss program by forcing oneself to eat less. But can weight problem really be fixed through dieting alone? Unfortunately, in most cases, dieting is never enough solution – no matter how presently popular it may be.
It is not even about eating less and exercising more. The long and short is that there’s no cookie-cutter formula or approach to losing weight. At Iowa Wellness Center, Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine Specialist Dr. Jason Bradley utilizes a comprehensive and personalized approach to weight loss. This means that Dr. Bradley first performs a careful patient assessment that involves, among others, laboratory tests and nutritional and lifestyle evaluations. Such assessment is undertaken to determine the cause of weight loss resistance. That is, the underlying interference that caused the metabolic imbalance and basically the reason why a patient is having hard time losing weight. Or sustaining the weight loss.
Some of the weight loss resistance may be due to Metabolic Syndrome , Hormone Imbalance, Drug Interactions, Stress, Inflammation , and Food Addictions . Once the cause of metabolic imbalance is known, Dr. Bradley will design a treatment plan consisting of dietary recommendations, supplements, and lifestyle changes which promote cellular metabolic changes in the patient’s body. Dr. Bradley’s Metabolic Weight Loss is actually eclectic in approach, intended to be beneficial to health, and sustaining in outcome. Hence, patients can expect a thinner yet ideally balanced version of them.
