Weight loss is a subject that many people struggle with on a daily basis. The effects from being overweight do not stop at physical limitations. Depression and anxiety often follow weight gain and it can be crippling. Over the past several years, we have developed a plan that has helped many people lose the extra pounds that have haunted them for years. Our weight loss program has three components that assist each other in achieving the goals for each individual patient.
In the initial visit, we will discuss the plan specific to you and a healthy goal that you wish to achieve.
During this visit, we will establish your current weight and your ideal weight. We will also discuss different medications which may assist you in reaching your goal. The last part of the plan is a diet that is healthy and sustainable so it can be the foundation of a new lifestyle.
Once the perfect approach is decided, your journey begins to shed extra pounds. We will see you once a month to monitor and discuss your weight loss. During these monthly appointments, we have the opportunity to discuss any problems, stressors or other life factors that make losing weight more difficult.
The average time it takes to lose weight with our program varies greatly from person to person and the amount of weight loss one is looking to shed. The average amount of time to reach the goal weight and stay on medication is 6 months.
