Medical Weight Loss Plans Sussex County:  Understanding Common Medical Conditions That Can Cause Weight Gain...

There are many medical weight loss plans in Sussex County. If you've joined one of them and have followed a balanced, low calorie diet while exercising 30 minutes a day for a few weeks but aren't losing weight, it's advisable to seek medical assistance to determine if a medical condition is the reason.

Here are just a few conditions that could cause issues with your weight...

Thyroid Disease - Your thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland located on the right side of your neck. The thyroid secretes important hormones related to metabolism. Hypothyroidism is a "slow" thyroid which is not producing enough thyroid hormone. If you have stuck to a calorie restricted diet for a month, and you've not lost weight, consider asking your doctor to check your thyroid hormone function.

Depression - Mostly, no one is sure what came first, the depression or the weight gain, but at any rate weight gain and depression go hand in hand. If you're over weight and depressed you must identify whether or not you're using food as a drug to sedate your feelings. If so, it's important to seek professional help to assist with finding healthier alternatives to dealing with life's issues than food.

Adrenal issues - Many people develop adrenal fatigue by ingesting the wrong types of foods over a period of time such as high amounts of stimulants like caffeine, white sugar, and processed chemically enhanced foods. Even stress can increase the level of Cortisol in your bloodstream which can cause adrenal fatigue. The best thing you can do is eliminate offending foods, increase organic whole foods, and find ways to reduce stress.

Medications - Steroids, antidepressants, blood pressure medications, corticosteroids, hormonal birth control and seizure meds can cause people to gain weight. For most people, weight is water weight accounting for about 20 lbs, but for some people they can actually gain over 100 lbs with the wrong medication. Speak to your doctor about the possiblility of trying an alternative medication if you gain more than 20 lbs on any medication..

Genetics - There are multiple genes associated with obesity and disorders that can account for some people's obesity such as Bardet-Bedl Syndrome and Prader-Willi Syndrome.  Even genetics that account for behavior can cause people to be obese. If a child is morbidly obese it is important for parents to ask doctors about genetic counseling. This is very rare, but it should not be overlooked if everything else has been tried.

Body Focus System Weight Loss Success

I'm a 40 something year old guy that over the last 10 years has slowly but surely gained weight. I have never been the type of guy to diet, but after having to go for sleep apnea testing, starting medication to control my high blood pressure, and being 40 pounds overweight, found it was time to do something.

I went to a Body Focus System seminar to hear what they had to say and I was surprised. The Detox is what really got my attention. I had always wanted to try a detox, but did not like the thought of having only liquids or having to drink some crazy mixture that tasted like who knows what.

I decided to sign up and give this "diet" a try. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I did! Let me first tell you about the detox. I started with the fruit detox in August and from the first day there was more to eat than I ever expected. I always assumed a diet would be about eating food you don't like and trying to forget about how hungry you are. With the detox, there were days that I was eating a snack before I was even hungry. I lost over 7 pounds during the detox eating fruits that I like and not feeling hungry at all.
