Our Approach

Transform How You Think About Foodga-3 Fatty Acids (DHA)

The idea of healthy eating sounds so intuitive and straightforward, yet most people struggle to make healthy choices through no fault of their own.

In reality, healthy eating habits start with education and behavioral shifts.

Unfortunately, most people do not incorporate these healthy habits in their daily lives because we eat for so many different reasons.

The truth is that eating less is the only effective way to lose weight.

What is Mindful Eating?

Food is meant to fuel the body, yet it’s rarely our sole reason for eating. We eat for entertainment, cultural and social reasons, and in response to routine or emotional triggers. We also tend to overeat when food is readily available.

The reason so many people are overweight is that they overeat and consume too many calories. In fact, most of us don’t really know what true hunger feels like.

Overeating is a major cause of weight gain, and more often than not, it doesn’t have an underlying medical cause.

However, this does not mean you can’t use medical intervention to reverse the effects of weight gain and instead, experience safe, rapid weight loss.

At Healthy Steps, our approach is simple.

We use medical weight loss techniques to jumpstart your weight loss within the first week. At the same time, we deploy a cognitive behavioral approach to eating for life-long weight loss results.

Our goal is to help you rethink how you view food, so you not only lose weight but keep it off for good.

Though everyone loses weight at their own pace, losing between 15 and 30 pounds in the first month is common!

What is Medical Weight Loss?

With so much information and so many diet fads out there, weight loss can be overwhelming and unnecessarily difficult.

You don’t need to be a nutritionist or fitness expert to be healthy.

Losing weight isn’t just about knowing what to eat and what not to eat, but more importantly, it is about how much you eat and reversing bad habits.

When people struggle to lose weight on their own, they may turn to a doctor who specializes in weight loss for help. Medical weight loss is a weight loss plan under the supervision of a medical doctor.

A medical weight loss doctor is especially recommended for anyone who has a body mass index (BMI) higher than 30, as this increases your risk of developing diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome.

Why Medical Weight Loss is More Than a Diet?

  • A weight loss doctor addresses any underlying health problems that may make it more difficult for you to lose weight.
  • A weight loss doctor has access to medication and supplements that are both effective and safe for weight loss.
  • A weight loss clinic provides cognitive behavioral therapy and support from a trained medical team who knows how to help you develop healthy habits.
