How Long Does it Take to Lose 50-100 Pounds (or more) Safely?

Over the past several years, I've had the opportunity to help thousands of people not only lose weight but to keep it off long-term. 

Along the way, I've also been able to help a number of people lose between to 50 and 100 pounds. 

I consider this a bigger accomplishment than helping someone lose just 10-20 pounds because once you get into the 50+ pounds to lose category, weight loss becomes much more difficult. 

As I've helped these people lose weight, I've found that there are a number of issues and obstacles that this particular group of patients faces and that is exactly what I want to explore today. 

We will be discussing how quickly you should be losing weight and other tips and tricks to help you stay the course so that your expectations are on point.

Are You Destined to be Overweight Forever? (The Answer is No)

This is a question that I'm sure many of you think about. Perhaps you've even given up on the idea of getting back to a 'normal' weight.

The truth is that there is definitely a chance for you to get back to whatever is normal for you, even if you suffer from hormone imbalances such as thyroid disease, leptin resistance, or insulin resistance. 

The way to do this, though, starts by understanding the causes of weight gain. Only then will you be able to actually address the underlying causes of weight gain and start to lose weight. 

This article will help you do just that. It will also give you an idea as to how likely you are to lose weight based on your history and your medical conditions. 

All of these factors influence both your ability to lose weight and how quickly that weight loss will occur

Fasting for Weight Loss: Does it Actually Work?

Fasting is probably the single cheapest and most effective weight loss tool that exists. 

It doesn't cost money to buy new foods, protein bars, protein powders or supplements and all it requires is some willpower and the ability to refrain from eating. 

But does it actually work?

Will fasting help you lose weight, trim down belly fat, and finally feel better?

My opinion is that fasting, as a therapy, can potentially help a great many people and this article is going to explain why. 

If you're interested in learning more about fasting, what it is, how it works, how it impacts your hormones, and how it impacts your metabolism then you are in the right place

Most people are not using Phentermine, for weight loss, correctly. 

Before you jump to conclusions, let me explain:

If you want to know how to use Phentermine safely and correctly, while avoiding negative side effects and optimizing your weight loss, then this is the article for you.

Postpartum Weight Loss Case Study Using T3 + Diet + Supplements

Up to 50% of American women who get pregnant gain more weight than is recommended by medical professionals (1).

This wouldn't necessarily be a problem if weight loss after pregnancy was easy, but that isn't the case. 

With this crazy high incidence of weight gain, it's no wonder that women search for weight loss programs to help with postpartum weight loss. 

If you are struggling with weight loss after your baby then this is the guide for you. 

I will walk through a case study of a patient who had difficulty with weight loss after her baby but was able to get back to her normal weight by balancing her hormones

Let's use her an example to talk about how to lose weight in the postpartum period:

The Right Way to Use HCG For Weight Loss (Not the HCG Diet)

This guide is part 2 in a series I am writing about how to properly and effectively use weight loss medications (including dosing, duration of therapy and titration). Part 1 contains information and dosing on Victoza which you can read about here

HCG can be used as part of a weight loss regimen to help you lose weight, but it's almost always coupled with a very low-calorie diet which can actually be harmful to your metabolism long-term. 

Learn how to use HCG in this guide:

Advanced Victoza Dosing Guide (& More) for Weight Loss & Insulin/Leptin Resistance

In this guide, I will discuss some considerations on how to use Victoza, how long therapy is, how to increase dosing and other benefits of using it for Weight loss.
