Have trouble losing weight? Or maybe losing the pounds is no problem for you, but keeping them off is another matter. If that’s the case, the weight-loss ads can be like a knife to the gut. You know the ones we are talking about.
They feature a perfectly happy, thin person showing off a super-sized pair of pants they presumably wore before losing weight. The picture doesn’t show what they actually had to do to lose weight!
For most, a magic pill or diet isn’t going to do the trick. If you are one of those people, you need real help in the form of a medically supervised weight loss program.
And if you are one of the 69% of American adults affected by obesity-related health problems, you need to get that help now before it’s too late.
Why Can’t I Lose This Weight on My Own?
There are several reasons why you have trouble losing weight on your own. It could be:
- A hormonal imbalance
- You eat the wrong foods
- Your body isn’t responding to exercise
- Your age, gender, genetics
- The amount of food you eat
- The time of the day you eat
- Lack of accountability
And, the list goes on… That’s where the experts, like us, come in handy!
What Is a Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program?
Providers, like us, offer medically supervised weight loss programs to manage your: proactively
- Healthy behaviors
The purpose of these programs is to help you lose and manage your weight. They also teach you how to maintain a healthier lifestyle and improve your quality of life.
They can also decrease the risk of obesity-related diseases and issues like:
- High blood pressure
- Coronary heart disease
- Abnormal blood fats

What Techniques Do You Use in Your Program?
Our program includes more than just diet and exercise. It may include non-invasive techniques like behavior modification, meal replacement plans, and prescription medications.
You learned many of your behaviors as a child, and they haven’t changed since. You have spent your life eating a certain way and exercising or not exercising a certain way.
These patterns of behavior may not be serving you well. Changing these patterns requires awareness, education, and accountability. Alterations to diet and exercise are crucial if you want to succeed in losing weight.
Meal Replacement Plans
It can be challenging to know what to eat and what not to eat. And if you don’t cook, it can be overwhelming to take on a new diet. That’s why our medically supervised weight loss program may offer pre-packaged meal replacement plans.
At times, your body needs extra help in the form of prescription medications to lose weight and keep it off.
We will decide if you would benefit from taking prescription medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of your weight-loss plan.
