Is Medical Weight Loss right for you?
Lose Weight Fast is effective long-term?
Using diet and exercise as the sole methods for losing weight has statistically been shown to not be effective long-term in obese patients (BMI > 35). More than 90% of obese patients do not maintain weight reduction, and, as a result, do no 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.
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), prior to 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 in order to live a happier, healthier life!
