Weight Loss Q & A

How can I get help losing weight?

Wanting to lose some weight is a common problem, but solving it is different for everyone. Your weight is a result of factors that you can control, like your diet and level of exercise, as well as some others that you can’t, like how quickly your metabolism works.

You can find diet advice everywhere, but that can’t compare to the personalized experience you get from creating a plan of diet and exercise with input from your nutritionist. In addition to providing you with meal and diet plans and advising you through your weight loss, Dr. Guthrie offers a variety of treatments that aid in weight loss, notably vitamin B-12 injections.

What is a B-12 injection?

Vitamin B-12 is involved in the metabolism of every cell in your body. Usually, you can try to get your recommended daily value of B-12 just by eating foods that contain it, like meat, eggs, dairy. But some people have a hard time getting enough B-12 through diet alone, and everyone can be vulnerable to occasional deficiencies in the vitamin that leave you feeling sluggish and fatigued.

How can a vitamin B-12 injection help me lose weight?

A B-12 injection is a way to give you a surge of the vitamin, which can give you the extra energy you need to exercise. Vitamin B-12 can also increase your metabolism, helping you shed extra pounds quicker when you exercise and eat a healthy balanced, diet. Vitamin B-12 is not a weight-loss cure by itself, it’s more like a boost to your broader weight-loss effort.

How can a nutritionist help me lose weight?

Losing weight can be a long and difficult road, so it’s best to bring a guide along. That guide is a nutritionist, an expert in how your body absorbs and expends the nutrients that fuel it.

As the Nutrition and Public Health expert at A Healthy You, Dr. Guthrie can help you on your weight-loss journey in a variety of ways, including making a detailed and personalized diet plan. Armed with a diet plan customized for you and Dr. Guthrie’s experienced counsel, you can work towards healthier, more lasting results than those offered by fad diets and quick fixes.
