The new year is upon us, and this typically comes with the time honored traditions of a new year’s resolution. Sure, it’s a new year, but is it finally time for a new you? If you are like most people, there was a significant albeit inadvertent weight gain for many during the height of the global pandemic. Let’s learn how to properly lose weight below.
Weight loss isn’t just to fit into the latest style for a friend’s celebration – it is a commitment for life. Furthermore, it needs to be about the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. This is all too often neglected in the weight loss space where medical professionals are not educated enough in the holistic of the situation at hand. It is clear that weight loss medications are underutilized – considering that only 24% of doctors account for 90% of weight loss prescriptions. Of the population, less than 3% of eligible patients are prescribed weight-loss medications.
