Medical Weight Loss

We believe weight management is similar to a chronic condition like high blood pressure, and should be treated as such, with medication supported by lifestyle changes. We treat our patients from a medical point of view, rather than from a judgmental willpower or character flaw perspective. We now boast a very high success rate with this approach.

Medical Weight Loss:
What is it?

More than one in three adults in the United States are considered to have medical obesity. Having a higher weight can increase the risk of a variety of health problems, leading to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression.

 

Being overweight can reduce one’s quality of life, and one study found that obesity can also shorten one’s lifespan by as much as fourteen years.

 

Understanding how to lose weight can seem daunting, but collaborating with a medical professional who cares about you on a medical weight loss plan can provide an ideal way to lose weight.

Initial Consultation

The provider will meet with you to learn more about you and your goals. During this initial consultation, you will discuss your ideal weight and work together to create a plan that will help you to meet your goals, while also working with your lifestyle.

Vitamins and pills

Weight Loss Medications

Weight loss medication will often be prescribed by your provider to help complement the weight loss, diet, and/or exercises that he or she recommends. Your provider will monitor you carefully if you are using these medications to ensure you are healthy while taking them.

Nutritional Cooking

Behavior Modification

Changing behaviors is the best way to lose weight. Essentially, extra weight is stored energy that the body is saving as fat tissue. The key behaviors that influence weight loss are eating foods that are lower in energy and having a higher level of activity.

Medical Weight Loss:
Why Does It Work?

Medical weight loss is a very effective way of losing weight for several reasons. Having a trained medical provider create a weight loss plan and monitor your progress provides a unique, individualized weight loss program that is specific to your needs.

Patient on Scale

Focused on the Individual


Having a plan that is personalized to help fit your unique goals, lifestyle, and personal preferences helps the plan to be more successful. Not only is it easier to implement a personalized plan, but it is also much easier to stay on the plan than it is to adhere to a one-size-fits-all diet or weight loss program.

 

Managed by a Medical Provider


Medical weight loss plans are unique in that they are designed and monitored by a licensed medical provider. Most typically have 10 to 18 years of education and will be far more knowledgeable about the topic of weight loss than any fitness professional or wellness coach alone. They will also be able to help identify and treat medical barriers that may prevent you from losing weight as well as you could.

 

Support Throughout the Process


Some weight loss plans have health coaches that will help hold people accountable, but the individualized attention of an experienced medical provider provides an outstanding benefit that other weight loss programs cannot match. Having the personalized support that a provider offers makes medical weight loss programs an invaluable method for achieving a healthy weight.

 

Is It Worth It?


Losing weight may seem daunting, initially. With so many weight loss programs and fad diets making extraordinary claims, it can be difficult to know what the best option is. By trusting the education and knowledge of a medical provider and pursuing a medical weight loss program, you can rest knowing that you are receiving professional, individualized care and a plan that is tailored to your unique needs. Following a medical weight loss program set by your provider will provide you with the best opportunity to lose weight and achieve the healthy lifestyle you desire.
