I'm Ready to Get My Weight Under Control: Can You Help?

Given that nearly one-third of adults in the United States are overweight and more than two out of five adults tip the scales into obesity, it’s little wonder that losing weight tops so many resolution lists each year.

If you want to join the movement and take charge of your health and well-being this year by getting your weight under control, we’ve got you every step of the way. The team at No Mercy Sports Medicine, led by Dr. Moisés Irizarry-Román, offers comprehensive weight management services designed to help patients lose weight and keep it off.

Here’s a look at how enlisting our help can help you meet your weight loss goals more quickly and more sustainably.

Creating a good weight-loss starting point

A great way to kick off your weight-loss efforts is to truly understand your starting point. If you’ve been struggling with your weight for years and previous diets have failed, it’s important that we first figure out whether there are any health issues we need to address first.

For example, we check your thyroid hormone levels, which can greatly influence your weight. If you have low testosterone or you’re a woman passing through menopause, lower reproductive hormone levels can also have an impact on your weight.

If your hormone levels check out, great; we continue on to the next step. If we find an imbalance, we correct that to set the stage for weight loss.

We also like to set a baseline — including vitals such as your blood pressure and heart rate, your cholesterol and glucose levels, and your body mass index (BMI). To figure out your starting BMI, click here.

This foundational information not only informs us better on how to best tackle your weight loss, but it also provides incentive moving forward as you improve all of these numbers through weight loss.

Tailoring your weight loss program to you

No matter what fad diets and products may claim, the key to weight loss is to burn more calories than you take in. Period.

How you go about that depends upon your unique goals and circumstances. To start, we create an environment in your body that favors weight loss through supplements, prescription weight loss medications, and hormone replacement therapies.

We counsel you on nutrition and dietary habits that support your health and encourage you to get your weight under control. Our goal here is to overhaul your relationship with food so that you truly enjoy a healthier diet moving forward.

We also advise you on good exercise regimens that will help you shed pounds far more quickly than simple dieting alone. We’ve found that a combination of weight training and aerobic exercise is best, and we work with you to create a plan that gets you moving, tailored to your interests and lifestyle.

The final component that’s key to your success is our vigilant oversight — we provide you with ongoing support and encouragement, as well as a push when needed.

Instead of going it alone on your weight loss efforts this time around, why not get the right team in your corner? To get started, please contact No Mercy Sports Medicine at our office in Miami, Florida, at 305-614-6757 or use our messaging form.
