Does the thought of having to undergo weight-loss surgery fill you with fear? Does it make the process of medical weight loss feel too intense to try?

At all costs, you want to avoid surgery. Even though you aren’t conscious during surgery, the aftermath and recovery can be long, uncomfortable, and arduous. To many, the idea of medical weight loss surgery can seem drastic and overly invasive. Isn’t there a better way to shed the excess pounds? Fortunately, there are several alternatives that help you achieve the results you want.

Restricting Caloric Intake

Whether you have surgery or not, learning how to limit your caloric intake is part of any weight loss journey. Otherwise, extra pounds will continue to rise again and again. The trick is to have a balanced diet of filling vegetables and fruit as well as whole grains and healthy proteins.

Indulging every now and then shouldn’t completely derail your progress, but you must restrict your calories if you wish to see significant results and hold onto your new body in the long term.

Getting Medical Team Support

The path toward lasting weight loss can be bumpy and difficult, and trying to do it alone can be frustrating and discouraging. Fortunately, you can have a medical team at your disposal to support your efforts. They can help you develop healthy meal plans and exercise regimen. In addition, they can keep you accountable toward progress and provide whatever additional treatment that can lead to your success without having to go under the knife.

Receiving Supplements

Sometimes, the body simply needs a jumpstart or boost in the right direction. That’s where supplements like Sermorelin or Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) come into play. These hormones get the body to take advantage of its own natural processes to burn stored fat more easily.

These less invasive supplements can make the weight-loss process less difficult and make exercise and diet efforts more effective.

Taking Medications

In some more extreme situations, people who are overweight or obese seek assistance from pharmaceuticals. Depending on the prescription, these medications can help make patients feel less hungry, absorb less fat, and lose weight.

As helpful as some medications can be, beware of appetite suppressants and always make sure that the prescribing provider is aware of your medical history. These pills can place additional stress on the heart and have adverse effects if taken for a long period of time. It’s often safer in the end to avoid these types of medications.

If you want to have a healthier, lighter body, you don’t have to resort to invasive treatment like surgery. Explore your options with a medical weight loss team who can guide you to where you want to go.
