We get it — you’re sick and tired of promises of something different and claims of amazing results. If you’re like most of our patients, you’ve been burned by fad diets and false hopes more times than you care to count.
If you’re skeptical about medical weight loss programs and not sure if it’s right for you, we hope you’ll read on just a little further and keep an open mind. At Balanced Medical Solutions in Hayward, California, our team of specialists have one goal at the forefront of all we do — to get you healthy.
If you’re overweight, getting healthy includes losing excess fat. We’re not here to sell you meal replacements (although we may recommend some) or motivate you with pictures of perfect models. Our only concern is helping you reach and maintain a healthy weight so you can enjoy true overall wellness.
As medical professionals, we advise you about the most effective ways to shed pounds and stay safe while doing it. Here’s how we support you during the journey.
One-of-a-kind weight loss
Have you ever wondered why two people — say you and your best friend — can both follow the same diet and have drastically different results? The fat seems to melt off your friend but stays firmly in place on your tummy and thighs. We can explain.
Although you’re both human and operate under some shared basic principles of weight gain and loss, that’s where the similarities end. There are so many individual variables involved in the process that you and your friend have less in common than you realize. So, if you’re expecting the same results by following the same diet and exercise routine, chances are you’ll fail every time.
Our medical weight loss program begins by assessing every aspect of your health and metabolism. Once we get a clear picture of how your body functions and why it’s holding onto extra weight, we can develop a custom-made treatment plan just for you. This isn’t your sister’s starvation plan or your co-worker’s go-to crash diet, it’s a medically sound, safe way to get healthy.
Supervision ensures success
When you think about a supervised weight-loss program, you may have visions of group meetings and public weigh-ins, but that’s not what we do here. In our book, supervision means that we’re a trusted resource for you when you have questions, hit plateaus, or need medical assistance. We take the guesswork out of meal planning, choosing exercises that really work, and getting to the root cause of your weight issues.
Safe medical help
The internet and your social media feed are packed with promises from people trying to push their weight-loss supplements — but can you trust them?
Why take the chance? Many online sources are scams, and others are not medical specialists with knowledge of a whole-system approach. Thus, if you buy their products, you may be putting yourself at risk for some serious health issues.
At Balanced Medical Solutions, we offer only evidenced-based medications and supplements. From appetite suppressants and B12 lipotropic treatments to hormone and peptide therapies, we prescribe supplements and medications (including phentermine) that work with your body and help you achieve your health goals safely.
In addition to being overweight, many of our patients suffer from other health conditions at the same time, like diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, heart disease, and chronic pain and fatigue, which makes exercising complicated. Plus, when you’re carrying excess pounds, exercising can be downright difficult.
So, we customize a weight loss plan that addresses your unique medical profile, your personal goals,, and which takes your unique circumstances into account.
If you’re obese and your weight is putting your health in grave danger, you may be looking at surgery if you don’t get the problem under control. While surgery may be necessary and is often the best way to get you out of danger quickly, it’s never the first option.
With our help, you stand an excellent chance of losing weight without going under the knife.
Because our medical weight-loss programs focus on your health instead of your size, we address issues that fad diets don’t, such as your cravings, your relationship with food, physical barriers to weight loss, your stress level, your age and hormone levels, hunger cycles, and even your sleep patterns.
By helping you get a handle on the things that make you gain weight and make it hard to lose weight, you develop a whole new outlook on life that triggers changes in your mind that have an impact on your body for the rest of your life.
If you’re overweight and have struggled to find a successful weight loss plan, schedule an appointment at Balanced Medical Solutions today — maybe all you need is personalized medical support.
