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. You may need guidance and support to make these changes. This is the individualized approach you will find at the Falcone Center.

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 influence 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
  • Inflammation

At your first visit to the Falcone Center, our team will have you complete an In-Body Body Composition Analysis. This will help us to determine your Basal Metabolic Rate, the number of calories you burn daily at rest. We will also know how much muscle, fat and visceral fat you are holding. This information will be very helpful in determining a customized weight loss program.

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.
