How Medical Weight Loss Can Help You

According to a 2018 food and health survey conducted by the International Food Information Council, one out of every three Americans go on a diet every year. Many choose to follow trendy diets that cut major food groups or require you to follow a very strict eating plan.

Though these types of diets may lead to weight loss, you may struggle to maintain your new weight. That’s because these plans only focus on the eating aspect of weight loss. They don’t take into consideration all the other factors that may affect your weight.

At OnePeak Medical, we take a more comprehensive approach to weight loss. Our Nutrition and Fitness Program can help you lose weight and keep it off.

How OnePeak can help you

To lose weight, you need to eat fewer calories than your body burns, right? In a nutshell, yes.

However, weight loss is a bit more complex than that. There are many factors that influence your ability to lose weight and keep it off, including:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Where you live
  • Culture and family
  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Medications
  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Eating habits
  • Physical activity

Most cookie-cutter diet plans focus primarily on eating habits. Though diet is a major part of any weight-loss program, changing what and how you eat isn’t enough to lose weight for good.

Our medical weight-loss program takes into consideration all the factors that affect your weight. We then create individualized plans that fit your lifestyle and health needs and help you reach your weight-loss goals.

What to expect

Before we make any recommendations, we first conduct a comprehensive initial consultation.

During the consultation you can expect:

  • A complete medical exam
  • Body composition analysis
  • A needs and risk assessment and medical clearance
  • Blood work to measure hormone levels and metabolic markers

After your consultation, we spend time talking to you about our medical weight-loss program and develop your personalized plan, which includes some or all of these components:

  • Individualized diet plan
  • Personalized fitness plan
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Bioidentical hormone therapy (for those with hormone imbalance)
  • Nutrient injections to stimulate fat loss
  • Nutritional supplements to control cravings and appetite
  • Prescription weight-loss medication, if needed

Our team of fitness and nutrition advisors works closely with you throughout your weight-loss journey. They provide encouragement, guidance, and recommendations to help you achieve optimal results.

After you lose the weight

Our medical weight-loss program doesn’t end after you reach your weight goal. We make sure you have all the tools and resources you need to help you maintain your new weight.

We encourage routine follow-up visits with our experts to recheck body composition and health markers to help you stay on track. We also provide recommendations to improve your fitness level and body composition that boost your metabolic rate.

When it comes to losing weight, you shouldn’t have to do it on your own. For a personalized medical weight-loss plan, contact us at the office closest to you.
