What exactly are Fast and Flexible Medical Weight Loss Programs?
Fast and Flexible Medical Weight Loss programs are doctor monitored weight loss programs that aim to work fast to help patients lose unhealthy and excess weight quickly but safely. Unlike fad diets or extreme weight loss plans, a medical weight loss plan is closely monitored by a doctor with training and experience in helping overweight and obese individuals lose weight and keep it off. In the case of the Fast and Flexible Weight Loss program, participants receive an approved list of foods that they can pick from, along with meal supplements and protein shakes. Each participant receives a custom-tailored program that is easy and flexible while providing them with great weight loss results. Patients can expect to see quick results in the first two weeks of the program with continued steady weight loss after that. Patients check in with one of the center’s doctors every few weeks to ensure they are staying on track and to answer any questions they may have.
How does this program help me lose weight?
A medical weight loss program is designed based on the individual and their unique goals, lifestyle, current health, age and any other factor that could be impacting their weight currently as well as their ability to lose weight. The program will not only provide a plan for the individual’s diet and exercise routine to get the weight off, it will also closely monitor any pre-existing health conditions to see if there are improvements. Medical weight loss plans are holistic plans that look not just at the physical needs of the patient, but they also take into account the psychological factors that could be contributing to an individual’s weight gain or inability to lose weight. Finding out the root cause of a person’s weight issues and treating it can go a long way to helping people lose weight and keep it off. A medical weight loss program will also focus on the educational aspect of teaching patients about forming healthy habits, making small lifestyle changes, stress management coping techniques and other methods of dealing with triggers that have caused them to have setbacks with their weight loss previously.
Which program is best for me?
In short, the best program for you is going to be the one you follow. Any weight loss program that involves a holistic approach to weight loss, encompassing healthy eating, regular exercise, adequate sleep, managing stress and overcoming any other roadblocks to losing weight can be successful but only if the individual is fully bought into it and willing to put in the time and effort. Working closely with your doctor and the rest of the weight loss team provides you with not only accountability to follow the plan, but also gives you an opportunity for regular, open dialogue about how the program is going, where you are finding success, where you are struggling and how you are working through those struggles. If something truly isn’t working for you, let the team know and see if adjustments can be made. Forcing yourself to do something you aren’t going to at least find some benefit from, even if you don’t fully enjoy it, is only going to make you miserable which can cause a negative setback in itself.
When can I see results after this weight loss program?
The timing of when you can expect to see results from your weight loss program is going to be dependent on a number of factors. The biggest factors are going to be in the amount of weight you have to lose from your initial starting point and how compliant you are to the weight loss program. The more weight you have to lose, the faster you are going to see results. Also, the more compliant you are to your program, the faster you will see results. Your weight loss team can help to manage your expectations by walking you through the program and expected results, so you know what you can expect to see for weight loss and when.
