Medical Weight Management
People who are overweight or obese suffer from an energy imbalance. Over time, their bodies have not burned the same number of calories that were consumed. It seems like a simple equation, but the formula is not as simple as calories-in versus calories-out. Why can some people eat twice as much food as you do and still maintain a healthy weight, when you struggle to keep from gaining despite diet and exercise? There is an explanation: Everyone experiences a different metabolic rate.
Personalized Weight Management Solutions
Since no two bodies are the same, no two weight loss and weight management programs should be the same either. Despite what many commercialized weight loss programs want you to believe, there is no one-size-fits-all method. Instead, weight loss and weight management programs should be personalized to fit your needs.
At our office, we take an individualized approach that provides real, balanced solutions for long-term weight management. We build unique programs based upon each patient’s health, metabolism, and body composition. All programs include physician-patient monitoring, allowing for continuing feedback and modifications as needed. We track your progress not only based on pounds an inches lost, but also upon other more accurate indications of improvement, such as changes in body fat percentages.
Did you know…
Obesity is a health problem that plagues more than one-third of American adults. Even those who are not considered obese are likely to at least be overweight, as adults of healthy weight are the minority in the U.S.
