Lose Weight Fast - Medical Weight Loss Programs

The natural and safest method to treat obesity is to diet and exercise. Dieting helps reduce the amount consumed and exercise utilizes those calories, further decreasing the overall daily calorie intake. The goal for daily calorie intake is 1200-1400 calories. This target can be achieved through numerous methods. A popular method is using liquid meal replacement formulas and protein shakes.
Lamentably, these artificial alternatives, although convenient, are far from providing the same balance of nutrients as whole foods. Additionally, artificial meal replacements have been shown to be ineffective after a year or so. Eating “real food” forces good eating habits and therefore helps maintain weight loss in the long run.

Lose Weight Fast - Exercises and Diets Plans

  • Using diet and exercise as the sole methods for losing weight.

  • Statistically, it shown to not be effective long-term in individuals with higher body weight (BMI > 35). Calculate your BMI.

  • More than 90% of individuals with higher body weight do not maintain weight reduction.

  • Hence, as a result, do not reduce their long-term medical risks.

  • This is the main reason that surgery has been recognized as a more effective means of treating morbid obesity.

  • In the long run, surgery has a better chance of keeping the weight off for good.

Lose Weight Fast - Medical Weight Loss Support

Nonetheless, weight loss through dieting and exercise plays a key role in the comprehensive care of a person with obesity. Many insurance plans will require the patient to undergo a physician-supervised diet for a period of months (usually 3 to 6 months), before authorizing a surgical procedure.

During this period, the patient receives education and training which will help him/her get rid of bad eating habits and make better food choices after the operation. The education of our patients is very important since their eating habits post-surgery will determine how long their progress lasts.

Keeping a food diary or food log is a great method we use to account for all sources of those calories. Our team will review the food diary with the patient at each visit. And always remember, the goal is to lose weight to live a happier, healthier life!
