If you have failed to reach your weight loss goals, medical weight loss may be right for you. If following a low-calorie diet and getting enough exercise in order to burn more calories than you eat is basic for weight loss, why does the weight almost always come back? Medical weight loss is the best option to maintain your health, lose weight and keep it off permanently. Your weight loss program is supervised by our physician and other professionals to make sure you can maintain your healthy weight.
What is a Medical Weight Loss Program?
There are several different types of medical weight loss programs, and the right one for you will depend on several things. First, you will have a thorough physical examination to determine your overall health. Our physician needs to consider what kind of diet you will have, what kind of exercise and if you could benefit from behavioral counseling. It may help find the cause of your tendency to overeat and help to modify your lifestyle. The most important part of medical weight loss is for you to learn the skills and lifestyle changes needed to make sure the weight doesn’t come back.
Medical Weight Loss Diet
Randomly reducing caloric intake may result in weight loss but it may also destroy your health. Your bodily systems need certain vitamins, minerals and proteins to function properly and maintain health. When a physician oversees your regimen, the proper food will be recommended. We can help you develop a healthy relationship with food so you feel satisfied and not deprived of the things you love. This will go a long way towards helping curb your cravings for high-calorie, non-nutritious food as well as your long-term goals of keeping off the weight you lost.
Medical Weight Loss Exercise
Exercise not only burns calories, but it also strengthens muscles, which in turn increases your metabolism. Certain exercises are better for losing weight than others. With medically supervised exercise, you will only do what is easy at first and gradually built up to more vigorous exercise.
You will not be asked to start a strenuous workout right from the beginning unless you have been doing one for years. The aim is to build strength, exercise your cardiovascular system and bend and stretch for flexibility training. Your exercise program will be planned and guided by expert physical trainers so your program is designed just for you.
