If you are obese or overweight you may have worked hard to lose weight, only to have it all come back. If this is the case, you might need a medical weight loss program. Our medical weight loss program in Dallas includes a team of professionals who work together to help you lose weight and keep it off.
What Is Medical Weight Loss?
A medical weight loss program aims at your good health and is overseen by a physician. When you talk to our physician in Dallas, they will ask some questions about your health. We will discuss your lifestyle and help you with long-term eating and exercising habits. We will:
• Diagnose your general health including weight-related illnesses
• Discover any emotional or lifestyle issues that cause you to gain weight
• Discuss a weight loss plan that is comfortable for you
Diet and Nutrition
Your customized medical weight loss program will include a dietitian. We may give you prepared meals at first and show you how to prepare healthy meals. You will learn about the importance of nutrition in maintaining a healthy weight.
One reason you may be overweight is that you hate doing regular exercise. This is unhealthy and can lead to many diseases such as venous insufficiency or cardiovascular disease. Your personal trainer will help you start an exercise program that is easy and comfortable to do. The program will increase in strength to the point that you can maintain it on your own.
During discussions with a psychologist in Dallas, you may learn about why you tend to overeat. There may be behavioral or emotional reasons that you turn to food for comfort. This often means sugary high-calorie food that offers no nutrition but a lot of calories. Combined with little exercise, weight gain is inevitable.
Our physician can diagnose weight-related diseases you have or are beginning to develop. Because your program is overseen by a physician, we can prescribe medication to help curb your appetite. This may not be necessary for all people but could be a big help for others.
