by | Sep 14, 2021 | News

It’s time to lose the weight you’ve been trying so hard to shed—in other words, no more yo-yo dieting traps and no more feeling like there’s no hope. Medical weight loss includes various nutritional testing, medications, and diet options; for instance, we utilize OPTIFAST, keto diet, hCG diet, and other options. Approximately 70% of Americans are considered obese, so medical weight loss is the answer for many American’s weight complications. Losing weight may seem daunting and unattainable, but most can lose weight with the right help and weight loss plan! 

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is when you work with a doctor to customize a plan that works for you. For some, that may mean diet pills, and for others, it could mean a restrictive diet. It is all about you and your lifestyle, which m makes the initial consultation incredibly important. The doctor will go over the different routes your weight loss journey can go down, and you both decide what makes sense for you. 

Is it worth it?

When you trust a trained physician to design an individualized plan that they monitor, they will do everything in their power to help you lose weight. If you feel stuck and are not sure what to do about your weight, medical weight loss is absolutely worth a try. It’s time to take control of your health!
