When should you go to the doctor for weight loss?
If you are seeking to lose weight or are concerned about how much you weigh, we welcome you to schedule a free consultation with one of our board-certified physicians at Metabolic Medical Center that specialize in effective, natural, and safe weight loss programs. During this consultation, we can let you know if you stand to benefit from one of our metabolic accelerated weight loss programs! Some clear indications that you could benefit from a medically supervised weight loss program include if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater or if your weight has a negative impact on your emotional or physical well-being. That said, even if your BMI is high, it does not necessarily mean that you are obese, as BMI does not distinguish between muscle mass and actual fat.
Does Medical Weight Loss Really Work?
Medically supervised weight loss programs are a much more reliable resource for losing weight than the myriad of commercialized weight loss programs that litter tabloid sections and magazine stands. That is because medical weight loss programs like our metabolic accelerated weight loss programs at Metabolic Medical Center are based upon legitimate medical, scientific research about how your body works and are supervised by board-certified physicians with the credentials to prove it! Specifically, our weight loss programs at Metabolic Medical Center focus on healing and optimizing your metabolism through proper diet, exercise, supplements, and medication, so that you can lose weight naturally and keep it off.
Is it harder to lose weight or maintain weight at home?
While it is not impossible to lose or maintain weight on your own at home, it does take an extraordinary amount of discipline and mental strength that few can muster up without a helping hand. That said, we do not mean to say that you cannot lose or maintain weight at home, but that we want to offer you a helping hand, so you don’t regress in moments of dismay but press on toward your goals! With the medical expertise of board-certified physicians and encouragement of our weight loss coaches, we can keep you focused on losing weight. Moreover, while our weight loss programs recommend diet and exercise plans, they do not require that you work out like a bodybuilder while only eating the leaves off the trees! Instead, we focus on foods and workouts that optimize the health of your metabolism so that your body will eventually do the hard work of losing and maintaining weight for you!
What can doctors prescribe for weight loss?
There are various FDA-approved appetite suppressants and prescription medicine for weight loss that doctors can safely prescribe! If you are interested in learning about what supplements and medicines our doctors typically prescribe at Metabolic Medical Center, give us a call at (843) 428-2580.
