How Weight Loss for Seniors Is Different

April 21, 2016

The natural process of aging causes many changes in the body and affects individuals differently. A University of Rochester Medical Center study recently reported that the natural aging process will contribute to the doubling of body fat for adults aged 25 by the time they are 75 years old. This is an example of the ways in which the natural aging process will impact health for the majority of Americans. This makes it crucial for older adults to consider their dietary choices very carefully. In addition to an understanding of the many health risks that increase with aging, active and informed adults 75 and over are also becoming more aware that smart and nourishing dietary decisions are fundamental to achieving long-term physical, mental and emotional well-being. While the myriad of dietary plans available in the weight loss field offer varying methods, many diet plans lack the specialization, adaptability and personalization that will make them sustainable over time. In an issue of American Psychologist, UCLA Researcher Traci Mann states that while some may be able to lose five to ten percent of their weight on most diets, the weight is likely to resurface within an estimated period of six months.

With an awareness of the many pitfalls of traditional dieting methods that leave many seniors disappointed by their short-lived results or too overwhelmed by the diversity of available options to choose from, Medifast California’s dietary plans recognize that holistic, gradual and sustainable improvement should be the goal of any diet. It is important to recognize that lasting results require time, effort and persistence. For these reasons, Medifast California’s dietary plans for seniors are designed to work with a client’s individual program of exercise and physical activity for sustainable and long-term wellness. Through this program, many seniors seeking weight improvement also find that, in addition to weight loss, their mood is happier, and their energy increases, which allows for an overall improved quality of life. By choosing the right diet plan, many seniors may be able to lose apathy, persistent pessimism and exhaustion along with the pounds.

With more than seventy delicious meals to choose from, Medifast California welcomes seniors into an array of fresh choices, all made with the best, most delicious and healthy ingredients. Our dietary plan satisfies your appetite and taste buds while helping you fortify your vital dietary needs such as calcium, vitamin D, fiber, healthy fats and protein. Unlike some weight loss plans for older adults on the market today, Medifast California encourages its clients to convene with their general healthcare professional before starting their new diet so that they may work the diet plan into their existing lifestyle and balance it with other dietary restrictions and personal needs. By emphasizing personalization and integration into your life, our diet plans for seniors have the potential to inspire unprecedented longevity and feasibility, allowing clients to sustain their weight loss achievements for the long haul. Sustainable weight loss means successful healthy living.
