What is Medical Weight Loss?

Before discussing what it is, lets start with what it is not. medical weight loss is NOT surgery or diet pills. It is physician-directed weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term.

How it Works

The tools for medical weight loss that our physician uses to help you manage your weight are very different from what you find with commercial programs. Firstly, your provider will use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress. Secondly, they can prescribe safe, low-calorie diets that are specifically designed to help you lose weight while breaking the cycle of food addiction. And should you choose, your provider can also prescribe an appetite suppressant for you. Finally, your provider has the ability to view your weight loss and maintenance within the context of your total health profile. If you have a condition that requires medication that may be interfering with your weight loss efforts, your primary care provider can prescribe a safe, effective alternative to lift those barriers.

While we provide a core program structure, it is important to know that no two plans are alike. Because you are unique with your own personal physical and motivational characteristics, your personalized plan will not be that same as anyone else’s plan.
