There are a lot of benefits of medical weight loss, but the two most incredible are that you don’t gain back the weight you lost and you stay or get healthy in the process of losing weight. Even when people are successful in losing a deal of weight through a fad diet, it’s possible to gain it all back eventually. Medical weight loss is different.
What is Medical Weight Loss
Medical weight loss is a program structured by a physician for your personal health issues. It is a comprehensive program that includes diet and nutrition information from our trained nutritionists, physical training and exercise from a professional who plans your regimen according to your abilities, and behavioral therapists who help you discover the reasons you overeat and tend to stay overweight.
Physician-Supervised Weight Loss
Medical weight loss means our doctor supervises your weight loss program every step of the way until you reach your goal of a healthy weight. This alone is a huge benefit because you never need to feel discouraged. There is someone who can tell you exactly where you are in the process and encourage you to keep going until you reach your goal. There is no one-size-fits-all program because everyone has different metabolisms, likes and dislikes when it comes to food and exercise abilities.
Fad diets do not take into consideration the psychological impact food has on people. On a fad diet, you may stop eating highly caloric foods but your cravings don’t stop. This is one reason you may gain back all the weight you lost. Your supervising physician and nutritionists will take into consideration the foods you like and create a plan that leaves you feeling satisfied. For some people, whole meals are provided on a regular basis and one treat each week is included. You don’t have to feel sad that you may never eat a slice of chocolate cake or a bowl of ice cream again.
