A Holistic Approach Results in More Successful Weight Loss

Holistic Approach Results

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who struggle with obesity, you’ll probably see yourself in this scenario…

You gain weight and realize you need to do something about it. You hyper-focus on your diet and lose some weight. You get “burned out” on the extreme diet and lose some motivation. You slip. You regain what you lost. And sometimes even more. Repeat cycle.


What if there was a better way? There is. Research shows that taking a more holistic approach can result in weight loss that lasts. No more yo-yo dieting. No more repeating the cycle that ultimately keeps you feeling defeated.

Why Holistic Weight Loss?

Holistic medicine approaches a person as a whole being, addressing the root causes of a health problem rather than just treating the symptoms. Taking that same holistic approach to weight loss can help you achieve meaningful, long-term, lasting results. Where other weight-loss efforts fail, a holistic weight-loss program can help you shed extra pounds while also gaining a valuable understanding of the comprehensive causes and effects of your own weight gain and loss.

And just like the poet and activist Maya Angelou said, when we know better, we do better.

While weight gain is not itself a “disease,” overeating and obesity can contribute to a number of serious health problems, including type II diabetes, stroke, various kinds of cancer, and heart disease. Staying at your ideal weight, then, is a key component of overall health. Not only will a healthy weight help prevent debilitating diseases, but it will also result in a higher quality of life.

What is a Holistic Weight Loss Plan?

A holistic weight-loss approach helps you work with the underlying causes of your weight issues from more than one angle. Why do you eat more than you should? What are your food triggers? How can you improve your diet? Do you exercise enough? How can you exercise more on a consistent basis? What factors—physical, psychological, social—are contributing to your diet and exercise decisions?

Discovering the answers to these questions and more can help you avoid negative patterns that prevent you from achieving your weight loss goals. This is the key to long-term weight loss, and this is the core of the holistic approach.
