5 Ways a Weight Loss Coach Helps You Shed the Pounds

Let’s face it. Losing weight is tough. For some people, the pounds just never seem to shred. For others, the weight returns following an otherwise successful program. If you’ve put everything you have into losing weight and it’s still not working, you may be missing an important piece of the puzzle: a weight loss coach. Consider these ways a coach can assist you in your weight loss journey and help you shed the pounds.

Weight Loss Coaches Inspire and Support

One of the big challenges individuals face when trying to lose weight is lack of support. Sometimes, the support networks is not there at all or individuals feel like they’re being judged for changing their diet and exercise habits. Other times, friends and family think they’re being supportive by saying they don’t think you need to change. While this is a nice confidence booster, it can really cut into a person’s desire to make a healthy lifestyle change.

Weight loss coaches create an environment where you can be free to pursue your goals without judgement. They are there to educate, encourage, guide, and support you throughout your journey. An experienced weight loss coach knows how to help you recognize and overcome obstacles and will provide the tools needed to keep you on track.

At Premier Med Spa, we provide weekly one-on-one coaching so that you don’t ever have to feel like you’re alone in your weight loss journey. When you need someone to listen, our coaches are here to support you.

They Tailor a Plan to Fit Your Needs

Another struggle many people face when losing weight is going into it with a one-size-fits-all approach. Most weight loss programs aim to restrict calories and encourage exercise to a certain type or amount per day. These programs may factor in your gender, height, and weight, but there are many other pieces of a successful weight loss program to consider. A weight loss coach helps you fill those gaps by getting to know you on a personal level and taking an individualized approach. They put the human factor back into weight loss, providing the opportunity to connect on an emotional level. No do-it-yourself program or self-help book can help you get to the root of your personal weight loss struggles. A weight loss coach can.

As your weight loss coach gets to know you, they can help create a diet and exercise plan that takes your emotions and current lifestyle into consideration. They’re trained to help spot your motivators and help you use your strengths to your advantage. A weight loss coach can help you make the gradual progression toward lifestyle changes that you can sustain for the rest of your life, all while taking your current situation into account.

Our weight loss coaches at Premier Med Spa develop a customized diet plan unique to each of our clients. We focus on an HCG diet that is designed to help individuals lose weight quickly and keep it off. Combined with our one-on-one coaching, we are able to tailor the plan to your needs and lifestyle.

They Keep You Accountable

Excuses are one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to losing weight. You might tell yourself you’ll start trying to lose weight next week or after the holidays only to realize that you never followed through. Oftentimes, individuals start on a diet program only to fall back into their old habits almost as quickly.

These situations are common and are nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of viewing them as failures, take them as a learning experience. What you may notice lacking in these scenarios is accountability.

One of a weight loss coach’s jobs is to keep you motivated and accountable. For example, at Premier Med Spa, our weight loss program includes weekly weigh-ins to help you stay on track with your goals. But don’t worry. There’s no pressure; only support.

They Provide Extra Tools and Resources

Not only do weight loss coaches provide advice and support tailored to your needs, but working with a weight loss coach can allow you access to tools and resources you may not have otherwise. This can include educational materials, personalized advice, and more.

Our clients at Premier Med Spa receive weekly B12 lipotropicshots to help you lose weight and stay on track. Vitamin B12 helps the body form new cells, increases energy, and is proven to help detox the liver and decrease your waist line. This valuable weight loss tool is available alongside our weight loss coaching services.

They Produce Proven Results

A final struggle that many weight loss clients face is that it doesn’t seem to matter how hard they try, they still struggle to see results. If that’s how you feel about every program you’ve tried, consider this: Research shows that working with a professional weight loss coach can help you lose more weight and reduce cardiovascular risk factors like cholesterol levels.

In one study, researchers looked at the effectiveness of three different types of health coaches. The first group worked with professional weight loss coaches, the second with peer groups, and the third with a mentor who had previously lost weight. After six months, 56 percent of participants in the professional group lost 10 percent of their total body weight compared to 50 percent of participants in the peer group and 17 percent in the mentor group. Researchers concluded that adding a health coach to your weight loss plan may help in reducing obesity.

The benefit of working with a professional coach is that the results are made to last long-term. A coach can help you develop habits and acquire knowledge that will stick with you long after you shed the pounds. Weight loss coaches aren’t just there to help you lose the weight; they’re there to help you keep it off and achieve your healthy lifestyle goals.

If you’ve ever felt like something was missing in previous weight loss programs you’ve tried, perhaps it’s time to contact a weight loss coach. Give us a call or email us to learn more about our Premier Med Spa weight loss approach, including diet plan, weekly weigh-ins, one-on-one coaching, and B12 lipo slim shots.

Healthy Tailgate Options

With fall quickly approaching and September here, we know that means one thing in the south: Football, and lots of it. Football also means tailgate parties where you are surrounded by unhealthy foods and beer. Here are a few tips to have fun, but still stay healthy:

  • Forgo the burgers, instead opt for a more healthy (but still filling option) like kabobs. These fun foods allow you to customize every portion of your meal. Try some shrimp or chicken with pineapple or your favorite veggies, all lightly seasoned with your favorite seasonings.
  • Potatoes are a staple with most tailgate parties. If they are a must, steer clear of potato salad and potato chips, both of which are full of fat and calories. Instead, put the grill master to work and have baked potatoes. A baked potato bar gives everyone options as to what they want on their potato and allows you the freedom of being healthy. Top your baked potato with things like salsa, spinach, black beans or Parmesan cheese, all of which can be healthy, in moderation.
  • Even though you are nixing the potato salad, you don’t have to completely get rid of the pasta salad. Use whole grain pasta to ensure you are getting all the nutrients possible to help keep your energy up the entire game!
  • Alcohol: If you feel like you must consume alcohol, set a limit ahead of time and opt for a light beer or Bloody Mary. With each serving of alcohol, make sure you are drinking the same amount of water to stay hydrated. On those hot days, you will become dehydrated even quicker. Always keep a bottle of water within arms reach.

While Tailgate parties are supposed to be fun, you don’t want to throw all your hard work and healthy habits out the window. You want to be full of energy and ready to go and cheer your team on to victory! Use these tips to have a great tailgate party everyone will want to be apart of!
