For some, weight loss is more vanity than anything else; they want to thinner despite being at a healthy weight already. For others, it can be a matter of life or death; sickness or health. Living life at an unhealthy weight for any significant period can increase your risk of certain weight-related diseases. At Simply Slim Medical in Bethesda, MD we offer different medical weight loss solutions to help you reach your goals and live the healthiest life possible.
What Happens During a Medical Weight Loss Program?
If you’ve been trying to lose weight on your own but have been unsuccessful, a medical weight loss program can change everything. At our office, you’ll be treated by professionals who will help you not only reach your weight loss goals but give you the tools you need to maintain a healthy weight.
A medical weight loss program includes several different aspects, which work together to help change your mindset, give you the tools you need to live a healthy lifestyle, and finally reach your healthiest weight.
Your Evaluation and Consultation
The first step in our weight loss program involves:
- Evaluating your weight
- Learning more about your background
- Discussing your ultimate weight loss goals
During this consultation, we will learn more about you and begin creating the foundation of your treatment plan. When we create your personalized weight loss plan, we will take your health history, background, and lifestyle into account. We will customize your treatment plan to your needs and your unique goals.
Behavioral Modification Techniques
One of the most important parts of a weight loss treatment plan is learning behavioral modification techniques. During this portion of your treatment, we will discuss your unhealthy choices and help you understand why you are making those choices. Then, we will develop a weight loss program and exercise routine combined with some strategic treatments and techniques to help change how you view your body, health, and weight.
Customizing Your Weight Loss Program
During your medical weight loss program, we will determine the right weight-loss treatment based on your health history and ultimate body composition goals. We have various treatments that will help you lose weight quickly, safely, and effectively. Some of these treatment methods include:
- Pharmacotherapy (weight loss medications)
- Fat busters
- The hCG Diet
- Vitamin B and Lipotropic injections (fat-busters)
We’ll choose the right combination of treatments based on your goals, and once we create your treatment plan, you can immediately begin your weight loss journey. These supplements and medications can help you lose weight quickly by:
- Increasing your metabolism
- Reducing your appetite
- Increasing your energy levels
- Helping curb cravings
- Helping you feel satiated for longer
- Teaching you ways to maintain a healthy weight
What Are the Benefits of a Weight Loss Program?
Improved Self Esteem and Increased Confidence
It’s no secret that when you look better, you feel better. It’s just a fact, and while our weight loss programs are designed primarily to help you lose weight so that you can be the healthiest version of yourself, they’re also designed to help improve self-esteem and increase confidence. Your clothes will look and fit better, and you’ll feel more confident in certain outfits or bathing suits that you may have never dared to consider in the past.
Diet and Fitness Education
Sometimes making poor health and diet choices simply comes down to a lack of education. If you don’t know how to make the right food choices or how to exercise, you need someone who can show you what to do and how to do it. That’s where we come in. By the end of your weight-loss program, you will have the tools to make the right dietary choices, nourish your body with healthy foods, and exercise in a way that promotes a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.
Reaching your goal weight through a medical weight loss program will improve your current and your future health. Choosing to seek out professional help and assistance to reach a healthy weight is an investment in your current and future health. You will reduce your risk of developing certain conditions and diseases and will become the healthiest you possible.
Increased Stamina and Energy
Carrying excess body weight can affect your energy levels and tax your adrenals, which often results in chronic fatigue. Once you lose the necessary weight, you’ll find that you have increased stamina and energy to make it through the day.
Improved Quality of Life
Losing weight not only improves your physical health, but it affects your mental and emotional health. Reaching your goal weight can improve your quality of life by improving your emotional, physical, and mental health. Your relationships will improve as you achieve a state of balance in your life.
