Have you struggled to lose weight on your own or do you need direction on how to safely lose weight and keep it off? Medically directed or medically supervised weight loss may be the answer and it’s available right here in Orange City at Wellspring Health!
What is Medically Directed Weight Loss?
Medically directed weight loss is a supervised weight loss program that uses scientific principles and research to help patients address the root cause of their weight problems. It does not involve diet pills or surgery, but instead focuses on good nutrition and healthy habits like exercise, diet, and lifestyle to achieve weight loss goals.
Each plan is customized to the individual patient’s needs, taking into account their age and any medical conditions or injuries they may have. Each program is overseen by a licensed healthcare professional or a team of medical professionals. This team is there to make sure the weight loss proceeds in a safe manner and to provide the support and advice a patient needs to develop habits and lifestyle changes that they can carry forward after the program ends.
In some cases, the program is covered by health insurance.
What To Expect From Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs
Medically supervised weight loss programs start with a full medical evaluation, including the review of blood work. The medical professional will talk to you about your weight loss goals, current eating and lifestyle habits, any medical conditions you have or are at risk of developing, and any medications your currently take.
From there, you’ll work with a nutritionist to develop a healthy eating plan that reduces your calorie consumption. Throughout the program you will meet regularly with your supervising team who will track your weight loss success and monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, sugar levels, and activity levels to see if and how they are impacted by the program.
Medically Directed Weight Loss Programs Provide Long-Lasting Results
Medically supervised weight loss programs provide patients with the education, training, tools, and confidence they need to regain control of their eating and lifestyle habits to create lasting change and achieve weight loss success. This is perhaps the biggest benefit to medically directed weight loss programs.
