Why Is Weight Loss So Difficult to Achieve and Maintain?
Many options are available for losing weight from fad diets to hard-core exercise plans and other quick-remedy methods. While many people may drop a significant amount of weight in a relatively short period of time, maintaining the weight loss is often next to impossible unless significant lifestyle modification occurs.
To successfully lose weight and maintain the weight loss, it is essential to adapt a lifestyle that facilitates the journey. This is not accomplished in a week, a month or, for some, even a year.
What Causes People to Gain Weight?
The common answer to why people gain weight lies in the basic idea that more calories enter the body than are used to function on a daily basis. But the issue of weight gain involves other influences which may include the following:
- Prescription medications
- Food allergy or intolerance
- Lifestyle and nutritional choices
- Emotional or mental stresses
- Age-related issues such as hormone imbalance
How Does Functional Medicine Aid in Weight Loss?
With functional medicine, the goal is to determine why patients gain weight. By evaluating lifestyle, food intake, and other issues at hand, doctors can get to the root of the issue, effectively treat it, and get patients back on the course to achieving and maintaining optimal health. A functional medicine approach is an effective way to address weight management issues.
What Is the Cost for a Weight Loss Plan at the Falcone Center?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
Why Should I Seek Help with Weight Loss at the Falcone Center?
The ability to effectively aid patients in their weight loss journey lies in the hands of a functional medicine practitioner. At the Falcone Center, through functional medicine our goal is to determine the root cause of why repeated or significant weight gain occurs by looking at all factors that may be in play in an attempt to eliminate those causes and help create a lifestyle and diet plan that promote weight loss.
