For many people, weight loss is not simply about cutting calories or getting in a few extra days of exercise. The journey to weight loss is often non-linear and includes frustrating setbacks and detours in the form of weight fluctuations and underlying health issues. The team at Simply Slim Medical are weight loss experts with years of experience helping patients achieve their ultimate weight loss goals. Dr. Wolins has designed a full complement of effective weight loss services; learn more below.
Weight Evaluation and Consultation
The first step on your weight loss journey with Simply Slim Medical is an evaluation and consultation. During the appointment, our skilled team, led by respected bariatrician and anesthesiologist Dr. Wolins, will work with you to understand your needs. You will have a safe space to freely discuss your weight loss goals and ask any questions. Dr. Wolins will go over your medical history and provide you with important information about Simply Slim’s weight loss solutions. Your body composition and metabolic analysis will be used to create your treatment plan, ensuring that you get the most out of your weight loss program.
Behavior modification is an essential component of lasting weight loss. In fact, if you have tried to lose weight on your own in the past but were unsuccessful or regained the weight that was lost, the issue may have been related to behavior modification. Simply put, behavior modification in weight loss is creating long-term results through habit-shifting and behavioral changes. This, in tandem with the other weight loss services at Simply Slim Medical, ensures that you are on the right track to lose the weight for good. Behavioral modification may include:
Controlling your home environment: This may include avoiding eating in front of the television or while doing other activities that require focus. Intentional eating at home can set you up for weight loss success. Likewise, having healthy, nutritious snacks on hand can help you control cravings.
Reducing setbacks from social eating: Going out to eat can present a challenge on your weight loss journey. Behavior modification is effective at helping you handle these situations, make weight-wise choices (such as limiting alcoholic drinks and selecting smaller portions), and avoid weight-related setbacks.
Developing healthy habits: Behavioral modification can help you adopt healthy habits, such as frequent exercise, and view them as a necessary component of your health, instead of a chore you dread. Consistency will help you see the most impressive and lasting results, so choosing an activity you enjoy and are confident you can stick to is best.
Also available at Simply Slim Medical is pharmacotherapy. When it comes to shedding weight and keeping it off, medications can significantly enhance your weight loss, allowing you to see results fast and stay motivated while completing your program. These may include:
- Pharmaceutical-grade hCG injections
- Lipotropic injections
Vitamin D Injection FAQ
Are Vitamin D supplements as effective as injections?
Because vitamin D is not naturally found in many foods, it is a good idea to consider boosting your levels. Taking dietary supplements may provide some benefits, but they must be ingested, meaning the total amount absorbed — as well as the effects of vitamin D — could be diminished during digestion.
On the other hand, vitamin D injections administered professionally deliver an adequate amount of this important nutrient, ensuring that you get the full benefit.
When should I consider getting a Vitamin D injection?
Vitamin D injections offer a range of incredible benefits and can be an effective tool in your weight loss journey. If you are experiencing any of the following, speak with Dr. Wolins soon about how vitamin D injections can help:
- Trouble sleeping
- Weakened bones
- Pain or achiness in the bones
- Hair loss
- Weak muscles
- Issues with sleep
How often should I have Vitamin D injections?
Dr. Wolins administers vitamin D injections as part of your customized treatment plan. The frequency of your injection sessions depends on your unique needs, medical history, and other important factors that are considered to help ensure you are receiving the right amount at the most appropriate times.
What can I do to boost the benefits of the injections?
Some patients may wonder if they can or should do anything to help bolster the effects of their vitamin D injections. Vitamin D injections are a great solution if you are not receiving enough of the nutrient in your regular diet. After you have started getting vitamin D injections, Dr. Wolins can provide detailed guidance about whether you need more vitamins from additional sources.
Are there any side effects of Vitamin D injections?
When you opt for vitamin D injections at Simply Slim Medical, you are choosing to be treated by skilled professionals, led by respected bariatrician and anesthesiologist, Dr. Matt Wolins. When he recommends vitamin injections, he has determined that the benefits outweigh any potential side effects. As with any new addition to your routine, your body may require a bit of time to get acclimated. However, you should soon start to experience the benefits of vitamin D, especially if you had a deficiency beforehand.
How can vitamin D improve my weight loss journey?
Getting enough Vitamin D can address other related health issues that can make it difficult for you to succeed in your weight loss program. Weight loss success often comes after a combination of several factors, including healthy lifestyle changes. Exercise and consistent movement may be a part of your weight loss journey, but the task can be made more difficult when you are fatigued, have joint pain, or your muscles feel weak, all of which can be symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D injections are great for eliminating these and more symptoms, helping you feel your best.
