The health and wellness landscape is evolving rapidly, with an estimated 30 million Americans projected to be utilizing GLP-1 medications by 2030.* While medications can play a significant role, they represent just one piece of the puzzle.

Lifestyle changes are equally crucial when it comes to long-term weight loss and overall wellbeing. 

A featured article in the news, including the country’s largest metropolitan daily newspaper the Los Angeles Times, in an article titled "5 Things You Need to Know about Medically Supported Weight Loss." Vice President of Scientific and Clinical Affairs at OPTAVIA discusses key components of a healthy medically supported weight loss journey – from prioritizing nutrition and muscle health to assembling a strong support network. 

The article discusses:

  • Prioritizing Nutrition and Support Muscle Health: Muscle loss often accompanies weight loss and can affect vital functions like blood sugar regulation and bone strength. For both muscle health and proper nutrition, it’s important to create healthy eating habits while on weight loss medication.

  • Getting Support Beyond Prescriptions: Independent research** shows most individuals interested in weight loss medications are looking for support beyond prescriptions, including clarity on how to incorporate components of healthy living, such as proper nutrition and exercise, into their lifestyles while utilizing these medical solutions.

  • Building a Strong Support System: In addition to your clinician, personalized guidance from an independent Coach can significantly impact your journey, especially if they have firsthand experience. I would love to be a part of your journey!

  • Surrounding Yourself with a Like-minded Community: A supportive community of individuals who understand your journey, speak from their own experiences, and encourage your efforts can make all the difference.

  • Establishing Healthy Habits: As appetite decreases with weight loss medication, seize the opportunity to focus on creating healthy habits that can offer long-term benefits, like reduced stress, improved sleep, and increased motion.

Together, let's embark on a journey toward a healthier you.

Please reach out and lets start building that foundation for your long term success !

Have an amazing day!
