Over the last several decades, scientists have learned a lot about what does and doesn’t work when it comes to weight loss. We all know, now, that there’s much more to it than just counting calories.

But a recent study explains the discovery of a protein that shuts down the body’s ability to burn fat in times of bodily stress, such as when dieting or overeating. While it seems like a cruel joke, it’s possible that this fat-hoarding mechanism existed to protect us back when we were hunter-gatherers and didn’t know when our next meal might be. Unfortunately, the way we live has changed too rapidly for evolution to keep up with us!

In light of this frustrating discovery, losing weight can feel like a daunting task. At The Youth Fountain, we completely understand, and we’re here to help with a proven range of services to help you safely reach your goal, regardless of any potential biological roadblock! Check out how we can help:

Medical weight loss: With this method, the team at The Youth Fountain creates a customized plan that is right for you. We take into consideration your eating habits, background, overall build, lifestyle, and more to come up with a diet plan that incorporates dietary and behavioral adjustments along with supplements and, if needed, possible pharmaceutical supports to help you achieve a realistic goal.

NutriMed® This low-calorie diet promotes permanent changes in your diet, exercise habits, and lifestyle to safely and comfortably maintain long-lasting weight loss goals. NutriMed includes nutritionally balanced meal replacements that are low in carbohydrates and high in proteins, vitamins and minerals to sustain your body while facilitating fat loss.

hCG: hCG is the pregnancy hormone found in the human body. When used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet, it can help with the burning of fat, reduction of inches, and more sustainable weight loss than with a reduced diet alone.

Lipotropic injections: This is an injection of a group of compounds that are safe and boost your metabolism. They give you energy while you are reducing caloric intake, and when used in diet plans, they initiate and enhance additional weight loss. They can also help your body prevent the buildup of excess fat in the liver.

There are even daily things you can do to improve your chances of long-term success, including sticking to these Healthline tips:

  • Drink water a half hour before meals. The more you drink, the less likely you’ll be to overeat during your meal. Plus, being better hydrated has a whole host of benefits!
  • Eat your food slowly. Eating slowly gives your body a chance to catch up with you and signal to your brain that you’re full, and it helps avoid that uncomfortable, over-full bloated feeling, too.
  • Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. Sugary drinks and fruit juice are easily forgotten, yet they’re also the most fattening substances you can consume! Cutting them out is a big step toward true weight loss success.

No matter which method is best for you, as long as you’re determined to work toward your goal, The Youth Fountain can get you there. It’s what we’re trained for and what we’re passionate about! Call 732-333-5992 or request a consultation today to get started toward a healthier, more confident you.!
