How does weight loss counseling help?

Weight loss counseling can make all the difference when it comes to losing weight safely and quickly today. Balance Wellspace patients will have regular appointments, typically once a week, to check in and monitor progress. If the weight isn't coming off quickly enough, changes can be made to help the patient get the results they want.

Weight loss counseling is especially important because it's focused on education. Patients will learn how to design healthy meals, how to shop for food effectively, and how to make good food choices in social situations.

Weight loss counseling also includes help with designing an exercise regimen that works for the individual. During weight loss counseling, the patient is held accountable for their weight loss, and many people find this to be extremely motivating and helpful. If patients have any issues on their weight loss journey, they always have a supportive place to turn to at Balance Wellspace.

How does blood work impact the weight loss plan?

The Balance Wellspace medical weight loss program includes complete blood work testing. This allows for medical assessment of heart disease and other risk factors. The results of the blood work help the Balance Wellspace team determine which physician grade nutritional supplements are best suited for the patient. Patients often see positive changes in blood tests after losing weight, including lower cholesterol and lower blood glucose levels.

What are lipotropic injections?

Lipotropic injections are part of the medical weight loss program at Balance Wellspace. These injections contain high doses of fat burning compounds to help speed up weight loss. In addition to speeding up the metabolism, many patients enjoy an energy boost from lipo injections.
