Health and Well-being begins with a positive mental attitude. The power of a positive attitude cannot be underestimated. Our team at iMetabolic includes Eating Behaviorists and Health Coaches who know the importance of a positive attitude. They have experience identifying the keys to psychological well-being and your reasons for over eating and will help give you the tools to succeed in long-term weight loss and healthy living.
If a client needs additional counseling or wishes to take advantage of the professional panel in a more in-depth manner, then additional time and appointments will be arranged. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service to maximize your physical and mental well-being.
Psychological support is an important part of successful weight loss. Most of us can use the psychological support that is referred to as “behavioral” support; this is support in the form of tips and tools that help us avoid the triggers in our lives that lead us to eat in an unhealthy way. For example, if you tend to eat unhealthy snacks while watching late night TV or movies, there are some very successful strategies that will allow you to substitute other behaviors at those times. Tips such as brushing your teeth earlier in the evening and pouring a glass of ice water before sitting down to watch the movie may help to start a pattern that breaks a cycle of unhealthy eating. There are literally hundreds of helpful, small, changes in behaviors that experts, such as those on the iMetabolic staff, can show you that will make a big difference in the success of your weight loss efforts.
Our Psychological Director, Dr. Stephen Mayville, Ph.D. is an expert in weight loss and Behavioral Medicine, and his team will guide you through the latest and most effective techniques for maximizing the success of your weight loss work.
A minority of patients struggle with specific tendencies, such as binge eating, or excessive cravings, that can often improve markedly with specific treatments including medications. The iMetabolic team is trained to help work with patients who struggle with these types of problems, in an effort to make the weight loss journey a successful one for the long term.
Each patient who enrolls with iMetabolic will receive regular psychological support and evaluations. More in-depth counseling, medication, and work with a therapist is available on an as-needed basis.
