Losing weight is something a vast number of people would like to accomplish. There are tons of books, diet programs, weight loss experts and products meant to help you lose weight. Each one seems to offer different advice. It can be hard to know which to follow. Worse, some of the advice and products are actually dangerous for your health. There are ways to lose weight in a healthy manner, but understanding those strategies and having the self-discipline to carry them out is a challenge few can achieve. Medical weight loss offers a safe, monitored method for shedding pounds in a way that is tailored to your specific needs and monitored along the way by healthcare personnel.
Above all else, the supervision of a qualified medical professional is what sets medical weight loss apart from fad diets and programs. This medically trained expert will monitor your weight, along with other health indicators such as your vital signs, as you progress through the program in order to be sure you’re losing pounds at a steady pace. Our specialist can make alterations to your prescribed program should you need to slow your weight loss down or step up your exercise plan. These tweaks will provide peace of mind that you’re on the right track.
Based on Your Wants and Needs
A medical weight loss program will be based on your specific health, fitness and dietary needs. A baseline medical exam and consultation regarding your medical history will be conducted at the beginning of the process. These will determine whether you are lacking in specific nutrients, if you require a special diet, if you have any exercise restrictions and other important data. An individualized weight loss plan can then be created just for you.
Supplements Prescribed as Needed
While fad diet pills are questionable when it comes to the safety and effectiveness of their ingredients, that doesn’t mean that some supplements can’t be beneficial to your weight loss program. It is possible that you could benefit from a certain type of supplement or appetite suppressant based on your initial consultation, specific medical issues or progress along the program. Our medical professional can prescribe such aids in order to overcome the effects of a nutritional deficiency, appetite control issue or another problem that is disrupting your weight loss progression.
