Unlike diets, the Blueprint weight loss program is meant to give participants a foundation for sustainable healthy living after they reach their goal weight. Our medical weight loss program works to address the root cause of the weight gain, rather than simply treating the physical symptoms. While on our Blueprint program, it’s not uncommon for participants to lose up to a pound of fat per day from the start until they reach their targeted weight.
Weight gain can be a result of more than simply eating too much or exercising too little. Bodies are complex, and it’s important to understand the different sources contributing to weight gain.
For example, Candida is a yeast that grows in your gut. Some of it is good, but an excess of it could cause health issues down the road. Likewise, your thyroid and hormones can contribute to weight gain if their levels are out of balance. If your metabolism isn’t working sufficiently, or hormones aren’t signaling to the rest of your body that you feel full, you won’t want to stop eating.
Stress also causes your metabolism to slow down, which can stop the production of the fat-burning chemicals in your body. At the same time, your brain may crave food that is bad for you, and the only way to satisfy that thought is to eat the food. Unfortunately, this helps your thoughts, but not your overall health. Of course, properly managing your lifestyle is also an important part of regulating body weight.
While participating in the Blueprint medical weight loss program, Dr. Mansour will work with you through every step of your weight loss journey. It is important that we set you up for a lifetime of successful weight management, rather than offer a quick solution that will not be permanent. Through a combination of check-ins, exercise, supplements, healthy eating, and encouragement, you can be one step closer to your desired weight.
