Start the New Year with Medical Weight Loss

With the holidays whipping around the corner at full speed, that also means that 2016 is coming to a close. This year has been full of many ups and downs, whether it be in your personal life or even world news. We have lived through many deaths of beloved people in the public eye, we have survived a very controversial election that will go down in history, and we have watched huge changes happen throughout the world, such as the Brexit. This year has been one for the ages and you may have realized life is very short and you want to enjoy it for as long as possible. A way to begin doing just that is getting yourself healthy and your weight in check.

At Innovative Health and Wellness in Buckhead, we want to help you become the best version of yourself with our medical weight loss. Our weight loss program is well rounded and has all the elements for you to succeed. Taking the next step in your health and wellness will be the best way to start the upcoming year. You may have tried dieting and weight loss fads in the past, but coming to a professional medical team with nutrition plans, B12 injections, and exercise programs is just what you need in 2017.

We wanted to give you some weight loss tips in conjunction with your medical weight loss in Buckhead

Don’t Banish Food

All of us have a food we indulge in when we feel stressed, sad, or even happy. The food could be ice cream, chocolate, Coca Cola®, or something savory like potato chips. Most people’s go-to method for tackling weight loss is to give up these foods entirely. This is poor practice because odds are one day you will binge, and feel horrible about your actions. The trick is to remove the food from the household, so the temptation lessens and the frequency dissipates. Our medical weight loss team will incorporate time for you to have these treats in moderation.

Don’t Starve

Many people blame over-gorging themselves over the holidays as to why they need to begin a weight loss plan. Unfortunately you, as well as we, know you may have had bad eating habits from the get-go. Your first thought is to diet, which leads to thinking of all the things you are giving up, which in turn makes you miserable and you may throw in the towel before you even start. With medical weight loss, we want you to focus on the positive changes coming your way, such as the great nutrition plan we will design for you. With a nutrition plan, we can make sure you are consuming delicious foods that are high in nutrients. You don’t need to give up your mom’s famous apple pie with us, just have a balanced and nutritious meal with it.

Make a Plan

When you decide you want to take the plunge and start a diet and exercise regimen, you need to know where to begin. Many people just decide they want to lose weight, and that’s the end of their plan. With medical weight loss we will be able to secure a plan for your future weight loss and wellness goals. We will make sure the plan fits into your routine so that these adjustments are seamless instead of a rough modification.

Use Your Home for Fitness

With medical weight loss, we will design a proper exercise plan for you to execute. Many people think they need to go right to a gym to get this accomplished. However, many exercises can be completed right in the comforts of your own home. If you are thinking about going to gym because you feel like you will be less distracted, do your research. Ensuring you like the gym and its atmosphere before you get a membership is key if you want to spend your time there.

Have Realistic Goals

You won’t be able to lose 30 pounds in a week; that is simply not feasible or the correct goal to make for yourself. With our medical weight loss in Buckhead, we make a set of goals that are reachable and can potentially show off amazing results. The main takeaway is that the overall goal is to give your health and wellness a makeover. You will be changing things about your routine that will only enhance your lifestyle.

Be Accountable

This will be an easy feat with a medical team behind you. We can help you be accountable for your actions and wellness goals. It’s hard to try and do everything all at once. That’s why our medical weight loss team comes up with a plan to help you at the pace you feel most comfortable. Our primary goal is to help you succeed and become as healthy as possible with our unique and personalized plan.

Medical weight loss may sound scary, and not for you, but you have to see for yourself. Come in for a free consultation in Buckhead and learn why medical weight loss is the answer for you to achieve the body you’ve always desired. 2016 may have been a hard year for all of us. However, it is time to learn lessons from this past year and to move on to something better over the horizon. Your health and wellness needs to come to the forefront in 2017. Come and get started with us in Buckhead, you will be so glad you did! The new you is just around the corner!

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“I have been to a number of chiropractors and orthopedist. Dr Orlando has been the only one that has relieved my shoulder pain!”*

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
