What is the Accelerated Medical Weight Loss Program?
The Accelerated Medical Weight Loss program is by far the fastest weight loss program offered. It also requires the closest supervision and monitoring by a doctor due to the extreme nature of this program. In the Accelerated Medical Weight Loss program, participants are put on a diet made up purely of supplements. This diet is very low in calories which is why patients need to be closely monitored for any negative side effects or symptoms of serious medical conditions that can happen as a result of a low-calorie diet. Your body will receive the necessary vitamins, nutrients and minerals required through the combination of supplements prescribed to you as part of the diet program. In some cases, though, this diet may be too extreme for the body to handle which is why close monitoring is an absolute must if you are on this program. Doctors are trained to know what symptoms to watch out for in their patients that could be an indication of a serious or dangerous side effect.
Do Medical Weight Loss programs really work?
Yes, medical weight loss programs do really work. Truly any weight loss program can work, even if the results are short lived. Where a medical weight loss program has the advantage over a fad diet or extreme exercise program is that the participant is monitored by a doctor and is following a holistic program that is uniquely tailored to their health, their goals and their interests. The focus is also on educating the patient so that they achieve long term success with their weight loss and don’t fall back into old, unhealthy habits as soon as the program is complete. Depending on the medical weight loss plan chosen as the best option for the participant, their weight loss can be fast or slow, but the weight will come off. With the proper education and knowledge about weight loss and weight gain, as well as coping techniques for how to manage stressors that can lead to weight gain or prevent people from losing weight, program participants will know how to avoid triggers that can cause them to gain weight.
How much weight can you lose with the Accelerated Medical Weight Loss Program?
On the Accelerated Medical Weight Loss program your weight gain is going to be significant. The actual weight you can expect to lose is going to be determined through consultation with your doctor about how much weight you want to lose and how much weight is realistic to lose. Following this program for a short stretch of time will enable you to maximize rapid weight loss without putting yourself too far at risk of adverse side effects from the drastic program. Cutting calories drastically for too long can be counterproductive to weight loss as it can cause your metabolism to drop. Your doctor will let you know how long you can follow this weight loss program for while still staying healthy and safe. If your doctor starts to see symptoms that could indicate damage to your body or the function of your internal organs, they will work with you to determine a better program to follow that isn’t putting your health at risk.
What is the ideal weight to lose in one month by this program?
This will be determined by working closely with your doctor and determining what is a safe amount of weight to lose in a single month through the Accelerated Medical Weight Loss program. Each participant is going to have a different ideal weight loss in a one-month timeframe, and that ideal weight loss will also vary based on the medical weight loss program that the participant is following. Even with this extreme weight loss program, there will be guidelines and parameters for how much weight is good and safe to lose in a month and how much is too much. With this program you will need to ensure you are following the program to the letter, so your body is receiving the proper vitamins and minerals it needs.
