Battling with being overweight can be a lifelong challenge, especially if you’re trying to do it alone.
Maintaining a healthy weight requires permanent lifestyle changes. And figuring out what works for you can be difficult and disappointing if you are unable to achieve your goals.
It doesn’t help that the surplus of fad diets and quick weight loss gimmicks push the idea that weight loss programs are one size fits all. Fortunately, there are personalized programs out there that can help you lose weight and keep it off for good.
A medically managed weight loss program is a personalized program, designed specifically to fit your needs by a team of licensed healthcare professionals. These programs aim to assist you in managing your body weight, decreasing your risk of diseases and improving your quality of life.
Maintaining a healthy weight takes time and effort. If you’ve exhausted yourself in trying to lose weight on your own, it might be time to consult with your provider about a medically managed weight loss program.

What to expect from a personalized plan

For the initial assessment, your provider will check for weight-related medical problems (sleep apnea, diabetes, etc.), and address any factors that may be hindering your ability to manage a healthy weight.
From there, a team of weight loss experts will work with you to create a program that is catered to your specific needs. These programs tackle weight loss from every angle, usually involving routine physical activity and a healthy diet.
With the help of a medically managed weight loss program, you can better understand and manage your blood pressure, medications, physical activity and nutrition.
Your weight loss team wants to see you succeed. They take the time to get to know your specific needs, in order to give you the best care possible.
