Trying to lose weight can be an extremely difficult and frustrating endeavor. There are many factors which can hinder your ability to lose weight, some of which are not obvious to many of us. Many folks have set out to lose weight with a good diet plan and a resolve to exercise regularly. But after several weeks of progress, they hit a wall, unable to press through a tough plateau. Has this happened to you? If so, you are not alone, and you don’t have to try to lose weight alone anymore.

New-york-_Medical-weight-loss-doctorBelow, we’ll talk briefly about a few problems with trying to lose weight alone, as well as why you should consider enlisting the help of an experienced professional from The NYC Weightloss Solutions.

Motivation and Accountability

This might be the biggest reason why trying to lose weight alone doesn’t work for most people. We often start out strong on our own, but it only takes a few weeks for our will power to begin to wear down. Perhaps there’s something wrong with our diet which we don’t have the expertise to know how to identify or properly address, which causes plateau a few weeks in. Or maybe you have a string of parties and events where desserts and fried foods are served and you aren’t able to make the right food choices. Once you hit a set-back like this, it can be hard to get back on track on your own. Most of us end up starting over again…and again. “I’ll start strong again on Monday,” we’ve told ourselves over and over. It often continues this way and we never actually lose all of the weight we wanted to.

Losing a significant amount of weight is something that requires a supportive community, accountability, and motivation. A few rare people are able to do it, and even fewer are able to keep the weight off. But most of us need help. An expert can identify all of the factors which may be hurting your weight loss efforts which aren’t obvious to you. They can also adjust your diet along the way to help you avoid discouraging plateaus. But if and when a plateau does come, an experienced weight loss professional will be able to keep you motivated and accountable, helping you resist the temptation to give in and allow yourself to regress. This support and community aspect of weight loss is essential for many of us.

The Science of Weight Loss

Losing weight isn’t always as simple as cleaning up your diet a bit and getting regular exercise, although that will certainly get you started. But after you lose the initial weight from making those simple changes, you’ll find that it gets harder and harder to continue to make progress – and that could be for one reason or for a combination of reasons. Sleep quality, hydration, allergies, meal portions and timing, caloric intake, hormonal issues, special dietary needs, certain medications, stress, and unknown sugar sources in the diet are all examples of subtle factors that could be hindering you without you knowing it. An experienced professional can help identify what factors other than diet and exercise might be making weight loss difficult for you, if any are.

Additionally, the right expert will know how to create a finely tuned diet which is customized for you specifically, to address whatever challenges you may have. For many of us, this is simply too complex to deal with on our own, especially when considering the motivation and accountability factor.
