Turning to an Obesity Medicine Expert

There are so many weight-loss plans on the market. Which one is right for you? We understand just how daunting this task can be. You wish for an overnight solution, but fad diets and other weight loss products don’t offer the results they promise, and some may even be harmful to your health. Instead of trying to navigate this yourself, our medical team can provide you with safe, effective ways to help you lose weight and manage it successfully.

Some things to ask our team when you come into our office for a weight loss consultation include:

  • What should be my goal weight?
  • How long will it take to reach my goal weight?
  • How can weight loss improve my health?
  • Could there be an underlying health problem that is making it harder to lose weight?
  • Could my medications be causing weight gain?

Our team will look at your current health, your lifestyle, and your medical history and from there we will create a weight loss solution that’s ideal for you. By turning to a doctor for weight loss we can also provide you with routine checkups and continuous monitoring to help you stay motivated and keep you on track. When you have a doctor as your accountability buddy it certainly makes it easier to help you lose weight.

While you may wish for a weight loss solution or diet that helps you drop pounds in just a week, it’s important to acknowledge that “slow but steady” wins the weight loss race. You should aim to lose no more than 1-2 pounds a week (or 3-5 pounds per week if you are 30 pounds or more overweight). If you notice a sudden drop in weight, unfortunately, this isn’t fat loss but mostly water and sometimes muscles. If you really want to lose weight safely and keep it off, our team will show you how to do this by incorporating more exercise into your routine, drinking more water, and making smarter and healthier food choices.
