Weight Management

There is no faster way to safely lose weight than with the guidance of a physician. In fact, average weight loss is about 21 pounds in 4 weeks. Incredible results like this come from you and your physician working one-on-one to create a plan that’s medically tailored to your body. If you have tried other weight loss programs with little or no success, you know it can be a frustrating and disappointing process.

Only your physician can offer the latest proven medical weight loss options available to you. These options are safe and medically proven to be the most effective in your initial desire to lose weight and your long-term goal of maintaining these results. All other non-physician weight loss services state in their literature: “before starting any weight loss program please consult your physician”.

The truth about weight loss is that there are many options available to you and in many cases these various plans will allow you to lose weight. However, most people fail in their attempts to lose weight or to lose weight permanently, many people put their health at risk by not fully understanding the reprocussions of the diet they selected. What may be a good weight loss alternative to other individuals could be medically contraindicated for what you need from a weight loss plan.

Your physician is formally trained to understand the various weight loss options that are healthy for you based upon your personal goals, medical history, nutritional habits, and your metabolism. By understanding your needs from a medical and personal goal viewpoint your physician will create a customized, individualized program that will give you the results you expect without the need for special food supplements, pre-packaged meals, or other gimmicks that other non-physician plans offer.
