Weight loss seems to be an overwhelming issue for the majority of adults. Many of us try but to our dismay end up losing only our patience! Understanding the underlying causes or reasons why weight loss is difficult is how Nutritionally Yours can help. There are medical reasons why weight loss may be difficult and there are non- medical reasons too. And to complicate it more, everyone is different so each person can have different reasons for their weight loss challenge. What works for one person maybe not work for another. YOU are created uniquely!
The labs we run are very comprehensive to get to the root cause of why weight loss may be difficult. We can use medical labs like Labcorp and Quest to help keep cost low to find the reasons for the weight that you need. Some of the items we see that make weight loss difficult are:
Hypothyroid – slow thyroid
Hashimoto’s – autoimmune thyroid
Too many calories
Poor gut bacteria
High inflammation levels
Food reactions causing inflammation/swelling and thus weight gain
Comprehensive testing by Nutritionally Yours can answer the WHY and begin your path to a new and healthier you. Sometimes it is a “medical” reason why weight loss may be difficult, and sometimes it is a functional or food- based reason. Either way, our clinic can help.
