If you have been struggling to lose weight for a long time to little results, it may be time to take the next step with medically supervised weight loss. Being obese or even overweight can be hazardous to your health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that approximately 69 percent of adults in the U.S. have health problems due to this. Lower body weight may help you avoid diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Dieting is usually associated with starvation, avoiding any food you love and doing strenuous exercise. There is a better way.
A medically supervised weight loss program means a physician and team of healthcare professionals oversees every aspect of your weight loss. This includes your diet and exercise as well as emotional and psychological factors that may trigger your craving for highly caloric food and overeating. Your good health is the number-one goal and losing weight is a big part of it. Some of the main advantages of our medically supervised weight loss program are:
A custom-designed program – during your first consultation with our specialist in obesity you will be asked questions about your overall health. You should also explain any attempts you have made to lose weight and diets you have followed. You may also be asked about your attitude toward food. For example, do you turn to food when you feel sad or depressed? All of these elements will determine the type of weight loss program that will work best for you.
Meal plans – we may offer you pre-prepared meals to make it easier for you to select foods that will help you lose weight. Our dietician and nutritionist will also teach you how to choose food and prepare healthy meals. There are several types of pre-prepared meals as well as nutritious diet smoothies for the time you don’t want to cook. This can include cleanse therapy as well.
Exercise – exercise is important for strong muscles and bones as well as for burning calories. In your supervised program, a personal trainer will create an exercise regime that is suitable for your physical abilities. As you grow stronger and the weight starts to reduce, the routine can be increased according to your abilities. This is important because most people simply won’t follow an exercise regime that is too strenuous.
