Is losing weight one of your New Years’ Resolutions? Almost half of Americans try to shed unwanted pounds each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Regardless of whether you want to lose weight to slash your risk of diabetes, boost your self-confidence, or feel good in your clothes, losing weight improves your physical and mental well-being.Dr. Afia Naqvi and our team at Rénove Medical Spa know that weight loss isn’t always easy. Through medically supervised weight loss programs, we can help you achieve your weight loss goals in a safe and efficient manner.
Are you ready to commit to your resolution and lose weight? Diet and exercise are the pillars of weight loss, but sometimes it can seem like the scale doesn’t budge no matter what you do. Depending on your specific goals, Dr. Naqvi may suggest one or more of the following four options to help you lose weight and get fit:
1. Nutritional counseling and dietary planning
Although exercise can help you lose weight, the ideal weight loss plan focuses on exercise as well as diet. When you’re trying to lose weight, reaching your target calories for the day is important, but what you eat is also equally important.
You’ll need fiber and protein to keep you feeling full – and keep snack attacks at bay. Eating energizing food can also give you the energy and stamina you need to make it through your workout. Nutritional counseling is a great addition to any weight loss program, whether you’re in need of a major diet overhaul or you’re already eating right but want to maximize your nutrition choices.
Nutritional counseling and dietary planning are personalized to suit your goals and overall health needs. Following a balanced, nutrient-dense diet supports your overall health while helping keep the weight off once you lose it.
2. Lipotropic injections
Lipotropic injections can jumpstart your weight loss by boosting your metabolism and detoxing your body. These weight loss injections include vitamin b12 (known for boosting energy levels) and amino acids (including choline, inositol, and methionine).
Lipotropic injections work best as part of a weight loss program, including a balanced diet and exercise plan.
Once your body is properly fueled with the right foods, it’s time to create an exercise regimen. The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes of exercise per week. Exercise supports your heart health, your mental health, improves your circulation, reduces stress, and improves muscle tone. Exercise also helps you burn more calories, so you can lose weight faster.
Not sure where to start? Dr. Naqvi helps you determine appropriate exercises for your age, overall health, and current fitness level.
4. Fat and cellulite reduction treatments
Even though eating clean and working out can improve your overall health, sometimes you just need a little jumpstart. BTL Vanquish ME uses gentle heat energy to minimize fat cells through a contactless treatment to reduce both unwanted fat and cellulite.

Keeping the weight off for good
When it comes to weight loss, we don’t want you to take short cuts or use weight loss methods that may sacrifice your long-term health. We want to help you establish healthy habits that you can continue to benefit from for years to come. Keeping the weight off for good is all about the positive habits you learn from your medically supervised weight loss program. You’ll learn:
- Which foods to eat and which to avoid
- Which foods to eat in moderation
- How much to eat
- The benefits of an active lifestyle
In addition to eating right and working out, you can continue to keep your weight off by getting enough sleep, managing stress levels, and staying adequately hydrated.
