5 Reasons Medical Weight Loss Will Give You Results

There are many reasons you may want to lose weight, from wanting to look better to wanting to protect and improve your health. If you’re like most overweight Americans, losing weight is an enormous challenge.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) close to 50% of adults in the United States tried to lose weight between 2013 and 2016. The majority of them tried exercising and eating less.

By and large, those efforts don’t lead to lasting weight loss. Experts estimate that by the year 2030, fully half of American adults will be classified as obese.  

Don’t be among those who simply try to lose weight. Here are five reasons you can expect to successfully lose weight through a medical weight loss program at Low Testosterone and Weight Loss Center.

Your medical history and status are considered

A medical weight loss program is actually medical in nature. That means our staff will draw blood, perform tests, and take your medical history and current health status into consideration as we help you build a plan that will work.

This may not seem like an important step, but the fact is, your medical status is critical to your weight loss success. If you have a chronic condition, your ability to exercise may well be impacted. Similarly, if you’re prediabetic or have some other condition, you may have specific nutritional needs.

Support and guidance

The sheer amount of information available regarding weight loss is mind-boggling. Should you try the keto diet? Go the vegan route? Low carb? Mediterranean?

With a medical weight loss program, you don’t have to worry about any of that, because you’re working with our highly qualified staff and following a program designed specifically for you.

When you have questions, we’re here to answer them. If you’re not sure you’re doing something the way you should be, we can provide guidance.

Decisions are easier

One of the most difficult parts of trying to lose weight on your own is making decisions. How many calories should you consume? Should you have an indulgence once a week?

Losing weight through our program takes away many of those difficult decisions. Following the diet plan means you don’t have to worry about what to eat. It’s already mapped out for you.

If you’ve ever tried to build an exercise regimen for yourself, you’ve probably had to decide whether you should do more aerobic exercise, or more strength training. The choices are difficult.

Our staff will help you identify an exercise plan that works for your fitness level, and that includes what you need to lose weight, build strength, and feel your best.

Appointments equal accountability

When you tackle weight loss by yourself, you’re not accountable to anyone but yourself. Sometimes that works well, but other times, you may need an outside voice helping you stay on track.

At Low Testosterone and Weight Loss Center, we provide that element of accountability. We’ll ask you at each appointment how you’ve been doing with the program, and we’ll help you identify and overcome obstacles to your success.

Supplements, aids, and pharmaceuticals

If you need vitamin supplements, we’ll provide them. We also offer injections to some patients, as well as prescription medications to aid your weight loss when necessary.

Not everyone needs supplements, diet aids, or prescription medications; but if you do, those approaches can be part of your plan. And, since you’re being supervised by a medical professional, you won’t need to worry about safety. That’s our job!

If you’d like to learn more about our medical weight loss programs, and find out if you’re a candidate, book an appointment online or by phone. We’re happy to answer your questions and to suggest a treatment approach that’s likely to work for you
