Weight Loss Q & A

Mountain Health Functional Medicine

Why is it so hard to lose weight?

If you find it difficult to lose weight, you’re not alone. More than 25% of adults in Montana struggle with their weight. There may be many reasons why you struggle, including an underlying health issue.

Dr. Hall and his team at Mountain Health Functional Medicine consider weight gain to be unnatural and more a symptom of an underlying issue rather than a disease that needs treatment. Many of Dr. Hall’s patients struggle to lose weight despite reducing calories and exercising regularly.  

What types of methods are used for weight loss?

Mountain Health Functional Medicine isn’t a weight loss clinic. Dr. Hall and his team want to take the focus off of weight loss and put it back on your health. His plan when it comes to your weight struggles is to address the root problem causing your weight gain and then take an individualized approach.

During a consultation at Mountain Health Functional Medicine, Dr. Hall and his team conduct a thorough examination to assess your entire health, which may include a physical examination, blood work, and review of your medical history and other health complaints. He then uses this information to create a plan focused on improving your overall health, which may include nutrition counseling to help you understand how food affects your health.

When you focus your energy on improving your overall health, instead of on restricting your food choices and working out for hours, the results are more positive and the weight drops off naturally until you reach your body’s most desirable weight.

What other benefits can I expect?

While weight loss may be a bonus when you focus on improving your health, losing weight and reaching your ideal weight also offers a number of other benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Boost in self-confidence
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Improved sleep


Weight loss also improves blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels, reducing your risk of chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Dr. Hall’s approach to weight may also help ensure that you keep the weight off.
