Medical weight loss programs focus on the individual reasons for being overweight and are planned and guided by a qualified medical professional. This type of program is based on scientific evidence for the causes of obesity and weight gain. Medical weight loss will not only help you lose weight, but it can also teach you how to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.
Who is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss?
If you are overweight or obese and have a high body mass index that is over 30, you may be a candidate for medical weight loss programs according to the Stanford Health Care. It is important to have the determination and motivation to lose weight. If you have made attempts to lose weight and just gained it back and more, then you may not be following a good plan. Starvation and fad diets may contribute to weight loss, but they don’t address the reasons you overeat or give you options for eating healthily.
Our weight loss experts focus on preventive medicine after extensive tests and discussions, so we will make an individualized program that may let you eat many of the things you like without feeling starved and deprived. Your program will be based on your overall health profile, body composition and metabolism.
What to Expect
