Medical Weight Loss
What is a Medical Weight Loss Program?
If you’ve tried dieting over and over and are still overweight or obese, it may be time to try a medical weight loss program. These are programs that are supervised by a medical professional such as a physician or nurse practitioner. Most such programs rely on a combination of different approaches to help you lose weight.
At Embrace Primary Care, we offer Weight Loss Now, a proven medical weight loss program that is customized to meet each patient’s needs for reaching a healthy weight. The program offers simple, effective tools that will help you lose weight in a healthy and sustainable manner. The focus is on gradually shedding pounds and changing eating and exercise habits.
How is Weight Loss Now different from other programs?
Unlike many programs, Weight Loss Now is not a one-size-fits-all product that focuses on only one aspect of weight loss. It is not a diet, an exercise plan, nor a medication. It is a customized program that includes a combination of all three things. Your individual program is designed based on your medical history and individual needs. The program starts with a comprehensive medical evaluation designed to identify any medical reasons you may have for being overweight or obese. (Complete blood work and a physical exam)After the evaluation, we will design a customized program that targets:
- Suppressing your appetite, often with prescription medication.
Increasing your metabolism and energy expenditure using a combination of exercise, natural energy boosters, and lipotropic (fat-burning) B12 injections.
- Behavior modification and lifestyle changes to help you maintain your weight loss long-term.
Treating any medical conditions that may be limiting your weight loss efforts.
