Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so hard?

Weight loss is hard because your body hasn’t evolved as quickly as the environment you live in. Not too long ago, about 10,000 years, humans had to physically work to gather their food. In the modern age, you no longer have to hunt or physically exert yourself to get food, and your body hasn’t adjusted to this “new” way of life.

With less activity and an abundance of food, the calorie equation is off balance, and your hunger instincts haven’t caught up with your new activity level. So, you consume more calories than your body burns, which leads to weight gain.

What weight loss plan works?

Dr. Stein knows weight loss diets don’t work because they don’t tap into your natural instincts. These diets trick you into thinking you’re in control and that you can trick yourself into thinking that you’re full, even though you’re not.

His weight loss plan works because it teaches you how to better manage your environment, not restrict your food intake. His plan focuses on health education and exercise knowledge. He teaches you how to change your activity level to meet your evolutionary food needs.

Dr. Stein also individualizes your plan based on your gender because men and women have different physiological and metabolic needs. He also helps you understand the value of good nutrition and eating foods that nourish the human body.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Obesity is the single largest preventable cause of death in the United States. Learning how to better manage your environment to drop the weight improves your health and your quality of life.

The benefits of weight loss with Dr. Stein include:

  • Improved cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Less joint pain
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced risk of chronic illness

His plan also helps put you back in control of your health. He teaches you how to eat and exercise to fit your body’s evolutionary needs. Change your environment and your weight changes with it.

Losing weight doesn’t have to be hard and shouldn't be temporary. Let Dr. Stein and his team at Pinnacle Personalized Healthcare help you get rid of your excess weight for good. Call the office today or book an appointment online.
