There are six different types of weight gain.
In this episode, we discuss the types of weight loss & the steps inside our 16-week weight loss journey at Progressive Medical Center.
There are many reasons why people gain weight. Some of them include aging, genetics, lack of sleep, environmental factors, smoking cessation, medical conditions, medications, and lifestyle factors.
Fast weight gain can be a sign of an underlying health condition such as a problem with the thyroid, kidneys, or heart. Certain medications can also cause people to gain weight rapidly.
If you’re experiencing unexplained weight gain or rapid weight gain, it’s important to speak with your doctor to determine the underlying cause.
A weight loss program can be beneficial for many reasons. It can provide individualized services1, help you form healthy eating habits1, provide medical guidance1, and provide long-term success1. Weight loss can also be good for the heart and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, even if you gain some of the weight back234.
Before you start a weight-loss program, it’s important to talk to your health care provider. Your health care provider can go over your medical issues and the drugs you take that might affect your weight. Your provider can guide you on a program that’s right for you. A plan should include foods you like and that you would enjoy eating for life. Your plan should include physical activity.
With all that being said, these are just suggestions. Listen to the podcast to hear a more specific plan for a long -term solution to keeping a healthy weight.
