So you’ve finally decided to give weight loss programs a try. With a focus on providing you with a diet plan that’s specifically suited to your blood work and body type and lifestyle, you can easily achieve the results you want. However, first you’ll have to find a program that works for you. Here are some questions to help point you in the right direction:
Does the program have one or one counseling or group classes?
Classes offer the added incentive of knowing people who are going through the same struggle as you and they could provide you with the moral and emotional support you need when times get tough. However, if you think you need more help, a one-on-one counseling session might be a better fit for you, says the NIH.
Do you have a specific meal plan?
If you want detailed instructions on what you can and can take, what food you should add and ditch from your daily diet, then this might work well for you.
Does it factor in your medical conditions?
If you have any allergies or medical conditions, do the meal plans reflect that? Or does it include peanuts when you specifically informed the staff at the clinic the last time that you’re deathly allergic to peanuts? That kind of inattention could be a sign you might want to consider going elsewhere.
Do they work with your goals in mind?
An effective rapid weight loss program should take into consideration your lifestyle and cultural needs. It should also help you develop approaches to dealing with social or holiday eating or work on your lack of motivation and engagement and provide you with a plan to help you keep the pounds off once you lose them.
So keep these in mind. Make sure you ask these questions while you look for the program that works for you.
