It’s estimated that a little over 42% of American adults are obese, while about 30.7% are overweight.
So why are so many women and men struggling with their weight?
A commonly overlooked reason is that both women and men often fight their biology to lose weight. Often, as we lose weight, the body adapts to resist it by lowering the resting metabolic rate — that’s the amount of energy spent at rest when the “engine” of the body is idling. This is sometimes followed by feelings of sluggishness and low energy. This can become an unhealthy cycle of tiredness, leading to poor food choices or possibly reaching for sugary, caffeinated drinks to boost low energy levels. Does this cycle sound familiar?
How do you break the cycle of gaining weight?
If you have been struggling to lose weight and trying to figure it out independently, the answer is to reach out to a healthcare professional specializing in weight loss and wellness. Alecia Parks, a Family Nurse Practitioner, opened her practice, Infinity Wellness, in August 2021 after going through the COVID pandemic and realizing she wanted her patients to experience feeling well and reach their indi- vidual health and life goals.
Alecia’s experience includes emergency department, women’s health, family practice, post-op surgery, and pain management. She realized everywhere she worked, people were seeking help for illness and sickness. Her passion for serving others and forming long-lasting relationships has led to a growing practice, and her clients are reaching their weight loss goals, feeling more optimistic about their appearance, sleeping better, and experiencing overall wellness.
The experts at Infinity Wellness continue to provide patients with personalized weight loss solutions and also offer several medication plans.
1. Bella, a once a day pill that is bupropion HCl/phentermine/ topiramate/naltrexone HCl/B12, helps to minimize cravings and control hunger.
2. Semaglutide is a weekly injection that is a non-stimulant that is used to reduce cravings and appetite to dramatically lessen your hunger and reduces the amount of food you want to eat, all while regulating your blood sugar, helping those carb cravings to go away.
3. Tirzepatide, which acts on two appetite hormone receptors, GIP and GLP-1, is used to treat diabetes and weight reduction. It produces an amazing 20% weight loss on average and is the first drug that targets both GLP-1 and GIP, resulting in more effective glycemic control and appetite suppression.
