What is medical weight loss?
Being at a higher weight can not only increase the risk to have medical obesity, but it can also increase the risk of a variety of health problems, which can lead to increased risks of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression.
Understanding how to lose weight for the long term can seem daunting, but if you work with a medical weight loss clinic and doctor, they can provide ideal ways for you to lose weight.
Medical weight loss is the undertaking of losing weight with the help and guidance of a professional like a doctor or nurse. The knowledge and medical experience that healthcare professionals offer to help individuals when they start to attempt to lose weight offer a more realistic plan that will meet each individual’s unique circumstances.
Healthcare professionals are also available to help you find the motivation to succeed in your medical weight loss journey.
Included in your medical weight loss journey, you will go through a medical consultation to discuss your unique circumstances and to review all that will be involved in the process.
Your healthcare team will discuss your diet, which will focus on using food for energy, and foods that are lower in calories. Your healthcare team will go over your healthy diet plan that will promote your weight loss journey.
Along with a healthy diet, is exercise. Exercise is super important with a healthy diet, as it helps your body to burn the energy that it has been storing as fat and use it more effectively as energy. Your healthcare team may recommend various workouts to lose weight that will work best with your lifestyle. Some individuals may be prescribed weight loss medications to help your body burn extra energy. Your doctor will monitor you carefully if you are prescribed medications to ensure you are not only taking them properly but that you stay healthy while taking them.
