Help! I'm Struggling to Lose Weight

Did you know that during the span of a year, nearly half the population in the United States tries to lose weight? Marketers certainly understand this number, as a quick Internet search for the words “weight loss” garners nearly three trillion results in less than a second.

Unfortunately, most of these products and services are long on promises but short on results, leaving you more frustrated than ever with your weight.

We understand this frustration, which is why our team here at Soffer Health Institute offers medically supervised diet and weight-loss programs. Under the direction of Dr. Ariel Soffer, we provide the support and resources you need to successfully lose weight and keep it off.

The benefits of weight loss

Before we get into how we can help you lose weight, we want to applaud your decision to take this very important step. The benefits of weight loss are not only cosmetic, but critical to your overall health. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that losing just 5-10% of your body weight can greatly reduce your risks of developing some serious and chronic problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.

Getting started

One of the primary benefits of medically supervised weight loss is that we can tailor a program to your unique needs and goals. In other words, your first meeting with us won’t simply be about numbers. While a body mass index (BMI) calculation and your weight are certainly jumping-off points, they hardly paint the whole picture.

During your initial sit-down with us, we review your health, your goals, any dietary concerns you may have, as well as challenges you’ve faced before when you’ve tried to lose weight on your own.

Setting you up for success

Once we have an idea about how to best help you lose weight, we supply you with the tools and counseling you need. For example, to jumpstart your weight loss, we may recommend FDA-approved weight-loss medications that suppress your appetite.

While these medications can certainly help, they’re only one piece of your weight-loss puzzle. We also ensure your health throughout your weight-loss journey by recommending the supplements your body needs to stay healthy.

As well, we believe that education plays a key role in successful weight loss, which means we provide you with nutritional counseling that will serve you well going forward.

Lastly, our weight-loss programs give you the accountability and encouragement you need to go the distance. Through our ongoing support, we’re here to applaud your successes and give you a little extra push if you stall.

If you want to finally gain the upper hand on your weight this year, contact one of our three offices in Aventura, Weston, and Hialeah, Florida, to set up a consultation.
