Frequently Asked Questions About Wellness & Weight

The best method for non-surgical weight loss is to utilize both diet and exercise in conjunction for healthy and successful weight loss. There are also many medications and supplements that may be beneficial in addition to regular diet and exercise that can aid in a weight loss journey as well.

While it may be possible to lose 20 pounds in a single month, this is not generally a healthy goal for weight loss. The recommended safe amount of weight loss to aim for each week is around 1-2 pounds, so a maximum of 8 pounds per month.

If you only drink water for 3 days, it is possible you may lose a bit of weight, but this is not generally a safe or effective way to lose weight. Even if you do lose weight this quickly, it is possible it may be solely water weight which you may gain back later.

While the first-line recommendation for weight loss is diet and exercise, some patients have found great success in weight-loss surgeries. If you feel this is a good fit for you, it may be a good idea to start the conversation with your doctor.

Nutrition is important for wellness to ensure you are getting enough vitamins and nutrients through your food and to make sure that you are getting the proper fuel to help you get through your day. A healthy diet can positively impact many things including your physical and mental health.

Generally, there is no proven safe and effective way to lose one pound each day. On average, the healthiest amount of weight loss each week is between 1-2 pounds which would be comparable to about 0.15-0.25 pounds each day.

There may be several factors impacting your ability to lose weight which can vary between individuals. Lack of weight loss may stem from a high caloric diet, a lack of exercise, and even some health conditions. These may include hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), or sleep apnea to name a few. Specific medications may also make it more difficult to lose weight or even trigger weight gain.

The first place you may lose weight or notice weight loss can depend on the individual, however, targeted weight loss is generally not possible. Weight loss occurs gradually all over the body and may be noticeable more over time, especially to ones around you before you notice it yourself.
