Weight Loss Q & A

What causes weight gain?

As you may suspect, weight gain is most commonly tied to following a sedentary lifestyle and consuming more food than your body needs (or unhealthy foods). 

Sometimes, however, you continue to gain weight — or have difficulty keeping it off — even after increasing your activity level and changing your diet. 

If you’re gaining weight or having a hard time losing weight, it could be related to any of the following issues:

  • Excess water retention, possibly due to a high salt intake
  • Stress, depression, or anxiety
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Diabetes 

Because any of these issues can inhibit your weight-loss efforts, it’s important to keep your physician involved throughout your journey.

How can I lose weight?

At Cardio Metabolic Institute, you have access to a team of physicians, registered dieticians, counselors, and even fitness experts who work together to help you lose weight, while you learn lifestyle changes to help you keep the weight off for a lifetime. 

Your lifestyle, enhancement, and advancement program (LEAP) may include any of the following:

  • Medical monitoring
  • Nutrition counseling 
  • Lifestyle education and counseling
  • On-site fitness and exercise sessions
  • OPTIFAST® meal replacement products

Your LEAP weight-loss journey is entirely personalized to you, your health, and how much weight you need to lose, whether it’s 10 pounds or 100 pounds (or more!).

When will I have results with my weight-loss plan?

Because your weight-loss plan from Cardio Metabolic Institute is entirely medically supervised, you can feel confident that you’re going to have results and learn to keep the weight off. 

The goal is to lose about one to two pounds each week, since steady and gradual weight loss is more likely to result in a long-term weight reduction. 

With OPTIFAST meal replacement products, you can lose over 50 pounds in 18-24 weeks*. But no matter what your weight loss and fitness goals may be, you can expect personalized care and ongoing results week after week at Cardio Metabolic Institute.
