Weight Loss Q & A

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Deciding that you’re ready to lose the weight is a major step in the right direction for good health. While your focus may be on looking better in your favorite pair of jeans, the team at Rejuvenate Your Life looks at your weight loss as a tool for better health. Some of the benefits of weight loss include:

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Decreased blood sugar and triglyceride levels
  • Reduced bad cholesterol
  • Increased good cholesterol
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Decreased joint pain

You may also experience a boost in confidence, self-esteem, and energy when you lose weight.

What is the best weight-loss plan for me?

No one weight-loss plan works for all. The team at Rejuvenate Your Life takes an individualized approach to your wellness and weight loss and creates a plan that fits your health, fitness, and weight loss goals.

To help determine the best weight-loss plan for you, your specialist may conduct various tests to assess health and diet needs, including:

  • Food sensitivity and intolerance testing
  • Hormone testing
  • Neurotransmitter testing

Your specialist uses the information gathered from your tests to develop your step-by-step nutrition program and exercise plan.

If you need to lose weight quickly, your specialist at Rejuvenate Your Life may recommend the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) diet. This diet incorporates the hCG hormone, which helps your body burn fat more efficiently and aids in hunger control, while you follow a very structured diet plan to help you lose weight quickly.

What medication help me lose weight?

The team at Rejuvenate Your Life understands how difficult it is for many people to lose weight and may recommend phentermine to help you get the results you’re looking for. This weight-loss medication decreases your appetite and helps you feel full faster, so you eat less.

In addition to phentermine, your specialist may also recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help you with your weight loss efforts. As you get older, your hormone levels decrease, which can make weight loss more difficult. BHRT is a plant-based form of hormone replacement that can restore hormone levels to help with weight loss.
