Medical weight loss is personalizing a program to address the unique challenges and obstacles that come with losing weight. At the Doctors Clinic, we understand that weight loss is not simply consuming fewer calories, but also taking into account other factors such as hormonal imbalances or underlying health conditions that can make it harder to lose weight. Our approach to weight loss includes nutritional planning, fitness education, goal setting, and supplementation to help aid your weight loss and work with your body to boost energy and rev up your metabolism.
Our programs are designed to help you overcome obstacles and reach your weight loss goals. Our providers don’t rely on fad diets because the results don’t last. Instead, they help you change your relationship with food and adopt a sensible, delicious and sustainable diet with a moderate exercise regimen.
Our programs include a health assessment, where your doctor will provide an exam and testing to determine how much weight you need to lose and identify any conditions that may affect your weight loss journey. They also track your blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels, so you can see more improvements than just the number on the scale.
Meal planning is also a key component of our program, your doctor will help you create a nutritious meal plan using real food that you can buy at the grocery store. They can help you adjust your diet to get through plateaus or add variation if needed. They will also teach you about nutrients, good carbs and fats, when to consume them, & other important details to consider when choosing food.
We understand that making changes can be challenging, but we are here to support you every step of the way. You will have regular appointments to check your progress and adjust your program as necessary. We will also help you set small goals to keep you motivated as you work towards your ideal weight.
When you reach your goal, often the hardest part is maintaining your weight. That’s why we provide a maintenance program to help you transition from the medical weight loss program to weight maintenance. Your doctor will help you figure out your caloric adjustment and activity level to help you stay slim and healthy for years to come.
