What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss, also known as medically supervised weight loss, is a method of losing weight that’s supervised by an actual medical professional who understands all of the many factors involved in weight gain and weight loss, like lifestyle habits, diet, and exercise. There’s more to it than that, though; there are other factors like an individual’s metabolism and more. All of these factors are considered when the professional puts together a medical weight-loss program for a patient. The program is customized for the patient and no one else!
During the program, the patient will have the professional’s support and supervision to ensure progress is made and that the weight loss is safe. This is what medical weight loss is all about, and it’s proven to be more effective than other methods for weight loss.
How does a medical weight-loss clinic work?
Here at Metabolic Medical Centers, we offer medical weight-loss programs, and getting started on one is easier than you might be thinking! Here’s how a program at our medical weight-loss clinic works:
- We provide lab testing so we can learn about your health requirements and metabolism
- We accommodate your lifestyle needs, like a chronic condition you have (such as arthritis)
- We provide meal plans or advice about prepping your own healthy meals
- You get strategies for boosting/optimizing your metabolism, such as adjusting food portion sizes
- You also get weight-loss strategies that help preserve muscle mass
- You get meal supplements, if you like, and delicious protein shakes to help support you
- We’re here for you to help you achieve results within just weeks
- We’ll help you learn lifelong habits to keep the weight off!
Also, our program is quite affordable, making it accessible to many, many people. The program is easy to get into as well, as there are practically no barriers to entry. The best weight-loss programs are tailored for each and every patient, just like ours are, but they’re also supervised to ensure efficiency and safety!
Is medical weight loss safe?
Yes, absolutely. Medical weight-loss programs are proven to be safer and more effective than unsupported, unsupervised weight loss. This is very true for patients with chronic health conditions that make losing weight difficult, like patients with diabetes.
Also, medical weight-loss programs work well because they’re based in science, so they include strategies like changing your lifestyle habits and sticking to a meal plan. You’ll be learning many healthy habits in your program to help you lose weight and keep it from coming back. If that sounds good to you, then we’d like to hear from you at Metabolic Medical Centers!
