What is Medical Weight Loss?

Today, obesity rates have reached an alarming number. About 9% of people are living with severe obesity. Obesity risks include a higher rate of diseases like cancer or diabetes. Research shows that overall, obesity causes a lower quality of life. This is where medical weight loss comes into the picture.

Medical Weight Loss

A physician often supervises this type of weight loss. It is when a doctor helps guide you through lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, to encourage healthy weight loss. Throughout the program, a physician will monitor certain things, such as the metabolic rate or physiological changes. This can help determine how effective the weight loss program is.

Various Programs

Various programs are available for those interested in medical weight loss. Many of these encourage changes in diet and lifestyle, but what these changes are may vary depending on the program. For example, some doctors may take a more holistic approach, while others may involve using medications.

Diet Changes

Every program has something in common: helping the patient make essential changes to the diet. This may involve a referral to a dietician or nutritionist to help you learn more about healthy food. They can teach you about the vitamins and nutrients your body needs, how to get them, and a proper caloric intake to promote weight loss. Professionals can help you discover foods you love that are also great for your body.

Activity Changes

Many people today live a sedentary lifestyle. While it’s common for individuals to have a job that requires sitting for long hours, there are ways to ensure that you can lose weight or maintain a healthy weight while working at a desk. A physician can help you find an exercise regime that works for you, such as working out after work and investing in equipment that can be used at your desk.

Lifestyle Changes

Diet and exercise are essential to losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. However, there are often other habits and lifestyle changes that can help you lose more weight. Your team will work with you to determine unhealthy habits causing weight gain. For example, shopping when hungry may result in buying more junk food. In this situation, doctors recommend shopping after eating.
