Losing weight can be an uphill battle, especially if you don’t know where to start or how to keep going. No wonder many people either give up even before they start or “jump ship” halfway through their journey.

At Alpha Care Wellness Center, Dr. Catherine Oseni, our board-certified and fellowship-trained integrative and functional medicine physician, understands all of the obstacles to losing weight, and she takes pride in her unique and holistic approach.

Through our Healthy Transformation and 30-Day Healthy Eating programs, Dr. Catherine has helped scores of clients in Weatherford and the surrounding communities lose weight safely and effectively—and keep it off for good. Unlike those run-of-the-mill weight-loss programs that are flooding the market, ours foster healthy lifestyle and behavior changes and enable our clients to establish a good relationship with food.

If you have the desire to lose weight but are thwarted by the following circumstances, you will greatly benefit from the expertise of Dr. Catherine Oseni—one of the best weight-loss specialists in Weatherford, Texas.

When You Find That Diet and Exercise Aren’t Enough

Although diet and regular exercise play an important role in helping you lose weight and maintain it, sometimes, they may not be enough. There may be other factors that have to be considered, such as certain medical conditions (e.g., hypothyroidism and polycystic ovarian syndrome), stress, hormonal imbalance, and lack of sleep.

Dr. Catherine can help you identify such issues and devise a safe, sustainable, and personalized weight-management program. She will carry out a thorough review of your medical history and current health condition. She will also order functional medicine testing to pinpoint any underlying condition/s and other factors that could impede your progress.

She will then incorporate the following into your program:

  • An individualized diet plan, consisting of functional foods
  • Nutraceuticals (pharmaceutical-grade supplements)
  • Behavior and lifestyle changes
  • Self-monitoring and accountability strategies
  • An exercise program tailored to your lifestyle and health needs

If you have a comorbidity (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, etc.), which requires a multifaceted treatment approach, Dr. Catherine can collaborate with your other healthcare providers to obtain as much information about your medical history and current health condition as can be beneficial.

When You Have Binge-Eating Disorder (BED)

Binge-eating disorder is a medical condition characterized by a compulsion to consume unusually large amounts of food and an inability to stop eating. People with binge-eating disorder have little to no control over their appetite.

Dr. Catherine, as a holistic doctor, will consider all aspects of your health—physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual—and see which of these could have contributed to your triggers. Dr. Catherine can create a medically supervised weight-loss program aimed at both ensuring your nutritional requirements are met and addressing your triggers.

When You Lack Positive Reinforcement and Motivation

If you decide to embark on a weight-loss journey with Dr. Catherine, it means you also have her as your accountability partner. She will track your progress week after week as well as instill in you the reason as to why you are doing it in the first place—and that is to be healthy. Accountability strategies reinforce discipline and help you stay motivated and identify the mistakes you’ve made along the way to avoid unnecessarily repeating them.

Dr. Catherine will provide you with support, advice, and helpful tips to steer you in the right direction, on the path to success.
