Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

What is Physician-Supervised Weight Loss?

If you’ve tried to lose weight, you know that it’s hard. You may have put weeks – even months – into hardcore diets and extensive exercise only to be underwhelmed by the results. That’s why involving a medical professional can be so important.

The physician-supervised weight loss programs at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness are different from the weight loss methods you’ve tried before in two significant ways. First, the plan will be tailored to you based on your lifestyle, cravings, current health, and medical history. Secondly, involving a medical professional ensures that you’re using the most effective techniques without depriving your body of anything it needs. This results in meaningful, sustainable weight loss.

What Can I Expect From My Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Program?

Your program will begin with a meeting with one of the experts on staff at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness. During that meeting, they will take the time to talk with you about your wants and needs. They will learn about your biggest weight loss challenges, your habits, and your lifestyle. They’ll ask about your family medical history and perform a complete medical panel to get a clear idea of your current health.

With all of that information, they will then create your customized weight loss plan. This will blend a diet plan (filled with real food!), an exercise regimen that works for you, and, as needed, medication to deliver optimal results. You will embark on this plan with your physician. During every step, he or she will ensure you’re giving your body what it needs to lose weight while keeping you in top health.

When Will I Start to See Results?

While you should start to see the pounds melt away quickly, the important part of your weight loss program is its sustainability over time. So many diets help people shed pounds but don’t do anything to keep them off.

Your physician-supervised weight loss plan will help you create your best body while developing healthy habits for life. When you’ve hit your weight loss goal, Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness will transition you to a post-treatment maintenance plan that will help you stay slim and healthy.

Are you ready to start your successful weight loss journey? To get set up with a physician-supervised weight loss plan, call Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness or schedule your appointment online today.
