If you have struggled with your weight for many years, it is likely that you have tried a number of different diet plans to lose weight. Some diet plans do lead to weight loss, but as soon as you stop the diet plan you might gain the weight back. Other diet plans don’t help you lose weight at all. So why do diets never seem to work? Weight loss is really about a lot more than restricting what you eat.
Why Diets Don’t Lead to Weight Loss
Some diets don’t lead to significant weight loss because everyone’s body is different. You may have health problems or conditions that are making it more difficult for you to lose weight. Some people lose weight faster on a low-fat diet, and some people lose weight faster on a low-carb diet. The different types of diets are all valid, but they don’t work for everyone.
Why Weight Loss Doesn’t Last
When you change your diet for a period of time, restricting what you eat and how much you eat, you may or may not lose weight. But the weight that you do lose often comes back after the diet is over. This is because you go back to eating the way you did before the diet. Lasting weight loss doesn’t come from temporary diets. It comes from making lifestyle changes and lasting diet changes that you will stick with even after you have reached your goal weight.
Lifestyle Changes Are Key
We understand that lifestyle changes are key to effective and lasting weight loss. Another key ingredient to natural and lasting weight loss is addressing medical problems that could be prohibiting you from losing weight.

All of these issues are addressed, and a diet plan that you can stick to for a lifetime is developed according to your body’s unique needs. From there, we will help you make lifestyle changes that will help you keep the weight off and improve your health at the same time.
