Dr. Shukhman will guide, encourage, and expertly supervise you on your journey, significantly boosting your potential for achieving sustainable and effective weight loss

Why is it so hard?


Losing weight and maintaining the loss is often challenging due to a combination of physiological and psychological factors. Our bodies have a natural "set point," a weight range that they are accustomed to and strive to maintain. When we attempt to lose weight, our metabolism may slow down to counteract the calorie deficit, making it progressively harder to shed additional pounds. Moreover, our mindset plays a crucial role; negative thought patterns, unrealistic expectations, and an "all-or-nothing" mentality can undermine our efforts. The journey requires rewiring our relationship with food, adopting sustainable habits, and addressing emotional triggers. This intricate interplay between our body's physiological mechanisms and our mental attitude makes long-term weight loss a complex endeavor that demands patience, consistency, and a holistic approach.
