Why A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach To Weight Loss Is Best

Why A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach To Weight Loss Is Best

Everyone has different levels of physical activity, dietary habits, personal health, and motivation. One-size-fits-all diet programs don’t account for each person’s different pre-existing health and instead throw you headfirst into a diet without considering your unique weight loss challenges or educating you on why it supposedly works. Most fad diets also don’t take aspects such as metabolism, motivation, and health conditions into account. Weight loss that is perpetuated with fad diets focuses only on the result instead of the process and it forgets to work with the individual, making these types of diets unsustainable. Instead, a comprehensive, personalized approach to weight loss uses a holistic understanding and a customized weight-loss plan to create lasting behavioral changes that help you lose the weight and keep it off.

Sustainable Weight Loss Is Holistic

Understand Your Body
You are an individual, so you need a personalized plan that matches your body and lifestyle. Your weight loss journey will depend on several bodily factors, including height, muscle mass, and metabolism. Your metabolism is the way your body expends energy and burns calories and can greatly influence your weight. Metabolism is often why we see some people who can frequently eat unhealthy foods and never seem to gain weight versus those who eat healthier and less but who retain more weight and struggle with weight loss. A person’s metabolism is largely determined by genetics, although it does tend to slow down when people reach age 30. Learning about your metabolism and how your body processes food is a vital part of weight loss.

Physiological Training
Weight loss is a surprisingly mental task. In order for a person to lose weight, they need to stick to their change in lifestyle and this often means understanding and keeping up motivation. It also means cognitive retraining that gives you control of your eating habits by reducing eating as a coping mechanism (for negative emotions such as stress or sadness), over-eating, eating when bored, cheating on your diet, or feeling the need to snack. These are all habits that need to be addressed and broken down before you can learn how to manage eating. Sticking with a workout routine is also a largely mental task, as you need to learn to make it a part of your everyday life so that you can maintain it long-term. Training yourself to think about your continual progress, the benefits to your overall health, and the endorphins you feel after your workout are often strong motivators. Finding the things that motivate you will help you create a regular schedule and stick to your diet and workout regime. 

It Takes Time
The reason fad diets don’t work is because they often promise fast weight loss. This might work for a temporary loss of weight, but most people quickly put the weight back on once they realize their dieting is unsustainable. These fast-acting diets can also rely on dangerous products or promises, such as diet pills or forms of starvation. Not only are these not healthy options, but they are also not permanent. These types of diets can also make weight gain more extreme in the future, as your body trains itself to store as much fat and energy as possible to prepare for future starvation periods. To lose weight and keep it off, an effective weight loss plan doesn’t only focus on the weight that is being shed, it focuses on healthy living and habit building. Healthy weight loss involves incorporating an exercise routine into your daily life and learning to eat healthy foods in appropriate proportions for you.
