To get started on your weight loss program, call the office in Coral Gables, Florida or book an appointment online.
Why is it so hard to lose weight?
When you gain weight, your hormones change in ways that hinder your weight loss efforts. Hormones such as insulin, cortisol, leptin, grehlin and thyroid hormones all play a role in weight
For example, patients who are overweight may be leptin resistant. When you’re resistant to leptin, you can carry extra weight, yet your brain thinks you’re low on energy reserves. As a result, you feel hungrier throughout the day and eat more than you usually would.
Why does weight loss counseling improve your weight loss success?
Dr. Starke can help you get off the weight loss roller coaster and overcome the influence of hormones with a medically supervised diet and nutritional guidance.
Patient are more motivated to stick with a weight loss plan when they work with a doctor because of the extra support and accountability.
