Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

What is Physician-Supervised Weight Loss?

Being overweight increases your risk of a host of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and certain types of cancer. Because carrying extra body weight has an impact on your health, getting your physician involved should be your first priority.

Physician-supervised weight loss involves evaluating your overall health to get to the root of why you’re gaining weight or having difficulty keeping it off. For instance, if you have a hormonal imbalance or poorly functioning thyroid, dropping excess pounds can become increasingly difficult. Your physician is responsible for finding out why you’re overweight, resolving that underlying issue, then designing your weight loss program.

Since no two patients are the same, neither are weight loss programs. Your physician supervised weight loss plan is designed with you in mind, as well as your lifestyle, overall health, and food likes and dislikes. When your weight loss regimen is personalized for you and you only, your likelihood of shedding pounds — and keeping them off — is dramatically enhanced.

What Happens During a Medical Weight Loss Appointment?

Your medical weight loss appointment at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness can include a variety of testing and screening. Depending on your health and how much weight you need to lose, your dedicated physician may:

  • Weigh and measure you
  • Calculate your body mass index (BMI)
  • Run an electrocardiogram (EKG) to check your heart
  • Draw blood to evaluate your hormones and signs of chronic disease

Once your physician better understands your needs and gets to know you personally, they can design your weight loss program. Not only do they help you plan meals and teach you how to eat, but they can also offer protein bars and shakes, fat-burning lipotropic injections, FDA-approved weight loss medications, and more.

How Much Weight Can I Lose Each Week?

The path to reaching your weight loss goal isn’t a race. Experiencing slow, steady, gradual weight loss often results in a much higher likelihood of keeping the weight off. The physicians at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness generally like to see you lose an average of one to two pounds each week.

But if you’re dedicated to following your customized diet plan and exercising regularly, you can certainly lose even more weight each week. Since the team monitors you regularly and schedules you for routine weigh-ins, they can always make adjustments to your physician-supervised weight loss plan as needed, to decrease any issues with a weight loss plateau.
