Why Diets Don’t Work…if Your Goal is SUSTAINED Weight Loss

The evidence speaks for itself- ‘Diets’ don’t work, if your goal is to achieve weight loss and keep it off!

‘Diets’ address the symptom of being overweight but NOT its root cause. That’s why weight loss achieved with ‘going on a diet’ is not maintained.

Beware of Diets Promising Quick Weight Loss

There are a multitude of commercially available diets which promise rapid and dramatic weight loss. This includes ‘medically supervised’ weight loss programs such as ‘HCG- Diets’ which FDA has gone on record declaring are of NO benefit and potentially dangerous.

The reality is, if you ‘go on a diet’ at some point you will ‘go off it’ and gain your weight back, often more. Who on vacation, on a cruise or when invited to a friend’s house for dinner or a holiday actually brings their prepackaged food or sticks to their ‘diet’?

Many people report, once they ‘cheat’ they rationalize that since they are ‘off their diet’, they can eat with reckless abandonment.

A patient of mine reported that the first thing she did after winning a major beauty pageant, was to order a large pizza and then proceed to eat the entire thing to celebrate. She has been battling with weight loss and diet ever since.

Lose Weight the Healthy Way

Once overweight, not only have you changed physically but physiologically, and even psychologically. Excess body fat actually changes how your body functions and metabolizes food and processes energy, making it extremely difficult to break the vicious cycle.

That’s why at CardioMender, MD Weight Loss Specialists we employ a medically supervised proven strategy achieving rapid, aggressive but safe weight loss (typically 15-20 pounds the 1st month*) but then implement an individualized transformation process which includes both nutrition and individualized support that foster an environment of sustained lasting weight loss.

*RESULTS ARE TYPICAL but cannot be guaranteed.

As you lose weight, your normal appearance and physiology are restored, without hunger or feeling like you’re on a diet!
During our maintenance program, we monitor, support and help empower you as you learn to perfect , balance your diet and your weight, even as you experience the challenges of everyday life.
