Weight Management Clinic
Losing weight can be a real struggle, especially if you are alone on your journey. It is common for those on weight loss journeys to lose motivation and ‘relapse’ onto the exact thing that caused them to put on weight in the first place. At our weight management clinic, we can help you throughout your journey, providing you with the motivation and support that you need to lose your weight. We understand the various difficulties that you will encounter throughout your journey, enabling us to tailor our services to best suit you.
It is important to understand that any healthy weight loss journey is a marathon not a sprint. More than not, when you find an individual who has lost a significant amount of weight very quickly, they soon put it back on in even less time. Here at our slimming clinic, we can provide you with a long term plan for your weight loss, encouraging you to lose the weight at a healthy pace, rather than too fast. Our weight loss clinic is designed to educate you regarding a number of aspects in your life to help you throughout your journey. We can provide you with various exercise regimes as well as information on the kind of foods to consume in your diet. As each individual is different, you can be assured that we will tailor our advice according to the lifestyle you have.
Finding the Cause of Your Weight Gain
More often than not, there will be a single aspect of your life that is causing your weight gain. In general, this will differ significantly from person to person and as a result, we must first find the main problem together. From our past experiences, we have found that significant weight gain is often a result of an addiction. This may be an addiction to a particular food such as cheese or chocolate, as well as takeaway and convenient foods. In the modern fast-paced world, it is very easy to get caught up in your daily life, making you forget to treat your body right. Rather than spending time in the evening to make a nice healthy dinner, you choose to eat a microwave meal or have a takeaway. This is one of the leading causes of weight gain in Singapore and is one of the main addictions that we tackle at our medical weight loss clinic.
Once we have found the main cause of your weight gain, our slimming clinic will work directly with you to fight against it. We can provide you with therapy to help you lose the weight, whilst also keeping you strong mentally so that you do not relapse throughout the process. Whilst we know it is extremely difficult for some individuals, together, we can push through and help you lose the weight you have gained.
Dangers of Overweight
One of the MOH survey conducted in 2017 showed that 36.2% of Singaporeans aged 18 to 69 are overweight. This means that their body Mass Index is more than 25. Such statistics are very alarming due to the many problems that being overweight can cause.
Being overweight is a crisis in the modern world. We now have more people on the planet that are overweight, which causes hundreds of thousands of deaths each and every year. Being overweight brings with it a wide range of risks, all of which are extremely detrimental to your health. Firstly, you are significantly more at risk of cardiac problems. This includes everything from heart attacks to a stroke. In addition to this, you are also more at risk of developing a wide range of different cancers. This is the number one cause of death in many overweight people, with their poor diets contributing to heart attacks and cancer.
By losing the excess weight on your body, you significantly decrease the risk of cardiac arrest, cancer and diabetes.
Benefits of Losing Weight
Throughout your weight losing journey, we can provide you with medication here at our slimming clinic, to assist you should you need it. We always remind our patients of the many benefits of losing weight in order to keep them motivated. Whilst at first losing weight will be a huge struggle, over time it will get easier. As it gets easier, you will begin to enjoy the exercise you’re doing, with your body producing endorphins or ‘feel-good’ hormones after you have completed a workout.
As you lose weight, you will begin to feel better in yourself, growing in confidence and self-esteem. This will allow you to push even further, allowing you to set and reach goals that you never believed were possible. As you lose weight, you also reduce your risk of a wide range of different heart problems as well as decrease the risk of various cancers. Throughout your journey, you will experience a wide number of benefits and eventually, your good feelings will pass on to those around you. Let us help you on your weight loss journey today and begin your path to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
