Are you almost ready to give up on losing weight because nothing you do changes the numbers on the scale? Thanks to the personalized approach to weight loss and health maintenance offered by Dr. Antoine Geffrard of RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, you may finally begin to shed those extra pounds.

There's no one-size-fits-all solution to weight loss

As soon as you announced that you wanted to lose weight, you probably began to receive plenty of unwanted, although well-intentioned, advice from family and friends. Unfortunately, the fad diet that worked for your uncle or the exercise program that helped your best friend shed inches and pounds won't necessarily be the right choice for you.

If you've tried a few of their suggestions and had no success, you may be feeling a little disappointed or frustrated (and maybe a little hungry). Weight loss is an individual process and doesn't just involve food and exercise. Your ability to lose weight depends on many factors, some of which may not be obvious.

When you work with a Southfield medical professional who has extensive experience in helping patients lose weight, he'll consider your body type, metabolism, job, daily activities, stress level, lifestyle, chronic conditions, and medications when suggesting a weight loss approach. You'll also discuss the diets and weight-loss strategies you've tried in the past and the ways losing weight can help you maintain or improve your health.

You'll be given a detailed weight loss plan

Your appointment won't be a quick five- or 10-minute visit that boils down to "eat less, exercise more." You'll have plenty of time to have a real conversation with your doctor and discuss your past weight loss attempts and any concerns you may have with various diets, plans or exercises.

Your doctor will devise a weight loss strategy specially designed for you and you alone. You'll be given advice on foods to eat, avoid or limit, discuss the best types of exercise for you, and receive information on the ways that any underlying health conditions may affect your weight loss journey. At the end of the visit, you'll leave with a comprehensive plan that will help you finally lose weight.

Are you ready to lose weight safely with a weight loss approach tailored to your unique needs? Dr. Geffrard can help you improve your physique and your health no matter where you live in the Southfield, MI, area. Schedule an appointment with RMS Consultations by calling (248) 663-5353.
