Medical weight loss programs are managed by medical professionals. They typically involve the use of diet, exercise, medication and/or dietary supplements. The programs may include medical diagnosis and comprehensive metabolic testing to monitor how the patient’s body is changing during the course of the program. While a self-managed weight loss program may focus more on watching the pounds drop away, it may not provide the best foundation for keeping off the lost weight. Medical weight loss programs have a much higher success rate for losing weight, staying healthy and not regaining the weight.
Customized for You
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to metabolism and digestion. Our specialist will look into your lifestyle, including your exercise routine, dietary habits, any prescription medications you may be taking and your overall health, to create a program that will give you optimal results. We will take into consideration your personal goals and recommend changes in your habits that may directly affect the outcome.
Supervised by Medical Professionals
This means you simply need to follow the program and do not need to worry about calories, nutrition or your health. Supervision not only monitors food, but it also involves how your body is reacting to the change in diet and routine. Margin is always given to human error when you cannot resist that doughnut or ice cream cone.
Get the Extra Weight Off and Keep It Off
The main problem with self-monitored dieting is regaining any weight that is lost. Fad diets and unhealthy eating can result in poor nutrition, and your body may crave high-calorie food after you lose weight. Medical weight loss programs take into consideration lifestyle changes you may need to make to achieve long-term success. You not only lose weight, but you also learn weight management skills that you can continue to use after you have reached your goal weight.
Monitor Your Exercise
Our specialist may determine the best type of effort you need to make, such as cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility training or strength building. As you exercise more, your metabolism changes, and the way you digest food also changes. While burning more calories than you eat is the bottom line for weight loss, it is important to do the best physical activity for your individual body. It need not be too strenuous, but it needs to target the right muscles.
