Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a customized weight loss program designed and supervised by a health care professional to help you lose weight. Medical weight loss plans focus on helping you adjust your diet and exercise habits. This means that while your results may take time, they’re sustainable.

In addition to helping you improve your relationship with food and physical activity, your health care provider also orders tests to check for hormonal imbalances and other health issues that could interfere with your weight loss efforts. If the tests reveal a health issue, they treat the condition as part of your weight loss plan to help you meet your goals. 

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

There are many benefits to medical weight loss. Your weight loss program is completely customized to address your needs, including any health issues that could interfere with your success. 

Additionally, your health care provider helps you make small and sustainable changes to your diet and exercise habits. This makes the adjustments more manageable and reduces your risk of getting discouraged. 

Also, you have regular appointments to check on your progress and adjust your plan as necessary. Routine appointments help keep you accountable for following through on the changes to your diet and exercise habits. Also, if you hit a plateau or need to change an aspect of your weight loss plan, your weight loss specialist can adjust your plan to keep you motivated and on track. 

Finally, the team at Waco Integrated Medical offers award-winning VASAYO™ nutritional supplements to ensure your body has all the nutrients it needs for optimal body function. They may also recommend supplements to increase your energy levels and boost your metabolism.

Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
