You may wish to shed extra pounds so that you can look better and feel better. But excess weight is much more than an aesthetic issue. Being overweight is a significant health risk, increasing the probability of chronic disease and early death.
That’s why our men’s health specialists at Low Testosterone & Weight Loss Center in Allen, Texas, want to help you lose excess weight safely and permanently. Our medically supervised and customized weight loss program gives you the tools and support you need to lose extra pounds and keep them off.
Why your BMI is high
The first step in permanent and safe weight loss is to determine the factors behind your weight gain and why you haven’t been able to lose the extra pounds on your own. We conduct a thorough physical examination and administer blood tests, urine tests, and other diagnostics as needed to determine if you have underlying conditions that may contribute to a high body-mass index (BMI), such as:
- Low testosterone
- Dysfunctional thyroid
- Slow metabolism
- High-stress lifestyle
- Pro-inflammatory diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
Once we know what’s behind your weight gain, we design a customized weight loss program that helps you shed pounds without feeling like you’re starving or triggering a yo-yo pattern of weight loss and gain.
Amp up your fat burning
If your metabolism is sluggish due to a hormonal imbalance, heredity, or other factors, we may rev up your fat-burning capabilities with prescription medications. These help your metabolism speed up so that it uses the calories you consume rather than storing them. You’ll also burn off body fat as energy.
Once you see the pounds come off quickly — and safely — you’re more likely to stick to the other changes you need to make to improve your BMI and your health. We may also recommend hormone therapy to help you lose fat and gain muscle.
Improve your nutrition
An essential part of a successful weight loss program is making sure that your diet is rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. We pack your diet with healthy choices such as:
- Grass-fed and pastured meats, poultry, and eggs
- Wild-caught fish and seafood
- Plenty of green vegetables, both raw and cooked
- Colorful vegetables and fruits
- Low-glycemic fruits, such as berries
We also recommend supplements that augment dietary nutrition. And don’t worry; we make sure that we find ways for you to incorporate the flavors, textures, and treats that you love most into your new way of eating.
Get more energy
In addition to bolstering your nutrition and fat-burning capabilities, we also help increase your energy. By working with you to find exercises and movements that you actually enjoy, you find that your body starts to feel better and even to crave more action.
Once you shed pounds, improve your nutrition, and find exercises you enjoy, your life can profoundly shift. By losing extra pounds and becoming fitter and better nourished, you lower your risk for:
- Heart attack
- Some forms of cancer
You’re not alone as you adopt new habits and foods and encounter temptations and setbacks. We’re with you every step of the way, celebrating your victories and making the adjustments you need to succeed.
