There are also a number of other factors specific to you that could impact the number of calories you need to eat for successful weight loss. Dr. Anwar performs a full evaluation to determine exactly how many calories you should eat to lose weight.
Eating protein calories, such as lean chicken, can make you feel satisfied faster, and this may lead to eating less overall. But, if you eat the same amount of calories in the form of processed carbohydrates, you won’t feel full for longer and will likely eat more than you intended.
Also, it takes more energy to digest protein than carbs. That means your body works harder, even when you’re at rest. The end result is that you burn more calories when you eat a high protein diet.
Yes, but it doesn’t have to. Many patients who have struggled to lose weight later find out that they’re suffering from a chronic disease that slows down their metabolism. A number of chronic diseases are tied to your hormones in some way, and your hormones can have a major impact on your weight.
But, if you suffer from a condition like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid dysfunction, Dr. Anwar can tailor a weight loss plan for you. Your weight loss plan might include bioidentical hormone replacement and lifestyle changes to help you achieve lasting success in spite of the chronic disease.
