What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a non-surgical approach to losing weight. It focuses on lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and behavior modifications that can help you reach your desired weight goals.

What are some of the advantages of medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is different from other weight loss programs because it is personalized to the individual. Unlike other programs, medical weight loss considers your health history, lifestyle, and goals to create a program that works for you. 
This includes the following to ensure you receive the most out of your program:

  • Personalized supplements
  • Meal plans
  • Testing 

Additionally, medical weight loss programs are supervised by a doctor or healthcare provider who can provide guidance and support throughout your journey. With medical weight loss, you can be sure you're getting the best possible care to achieve your weight loss goals.

Am I a good candidate for medical weight loss?

Do you need help determining if medical weight loss is right for you? In general, anyone who wishes to make a lifestyle change to improve their overall health and well-being can benefit from medical weight loss.
