What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss is a comprehensive and personalized approach to weight management, led by a physician who specializes in weight management.
Unlike fad diets or quick fixes, medical weight loss focuses on addressing the root causes of weight gain and tailoring a plan that suits your unique needs.
Medical weight loss vs. other plans
Your medical weight loss program will be guided by a doctor, making it safer and more effective than some other weight loss plans. Plus, it minimizes potential risks and ensures your healthy progress. My approach is rooted in evidence-based practices, ensuring you’re in good hands throughout your journey.
Unlike short-term fixes and yo-yo dieting, medical weight loss helps you achieve sustainable results that last a lifetime. By focusing on lifestyle changes, behavior modification, and healthy habits, I’ll empower you to maintain your weight loss long after you’ve reached your goal.
Tailored to You
No two people are alike, and that’s why I customize your weight loss plan to suit your specific needs, taking into account your medical conditions, dietary preferences, and exercise capabilities to design a plan that is both realistic and fun. This personalized approach maximizes your chances of success.
What to expect
1. Comprehensive evaluation
We will begin with a thorough evaluation to understand your medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals. I’ll conduct physical examinations, review your lab results, and discuss any underlying factors that may be affecting your weight.
2. Personalized weight loss plan
A healthy and balanced diet is essential for successful weight loss. I’ll teach you how to make nutritious choices, manage portion sizes, and incorporate delicious and satisfying meals into your daily routine.
3. Behavioral counseling
Weight loss is not just about what you eat, but also about understanding the underlying behavioral patterns that contribute to weight gain. I will help you identify triggers, develop strategies to overcome emotional eating, and provide ongoing support to help you build a positive relationship with food.
4. Fitness and Exercise
Physical activity plays a crucial role in weight loss and overall well-being. I’ll work with you to develop a personalized exercise plan that fits your fitness level and preferences. In addition, I’ll guide you through various activities and provide valuable tips to help you stay motivated and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle.
5. Ongoing Support
I’m with you every step of the way! My medical weight loss program includes regular check-ins and coaching sessions to keep you motivated and accountable. We will monitor your progress, I’ll provide guidance, and make adjustments to your plan as needed to ensure you achieve your desired results.
