Naturally, anyone who is trying to shed pounds wants to lose weight quickly. However, this can lead to "diet chasing" as the person jumps from one fad diet to another. Fad dieting is not an effective strategy for losing weight and often causes the person to become frustrated and depressed. Collective research suggests that people who steadily lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week are more likely to attain their goal and be much more successful at keeping the weight off. While prescription weight-loss medications may sound like a dieter's dream, they are not for everyone. Only a licensed medical professional can give you a complete evaluation to determine the weight loss options to best support your efforts.
While eating the right foods and remaining active throughout all stages of your life are important factors, some people still struggle to lose weight and may suffer with weight-related health issues. A medical weight loss program supervised by a physician may be your best option. During medically supervised weight loss, Delta IMC will monitor the following:
- Blood Pressure
- Heart Rate
- Blood Glucose
- Activity Levels
- Lab & Blood Work
In addition to modifying your immediate menu plan and exercise regimen, our Internist can determine what supplementation and weight loss products are needed to get you started on the right track. Losing weight is not easy, and it often takes more than just setting a resolution. Recent studies show that medical weight loss programs produce better results than unsupervised programs. If you're ready to make the commitment, then schedule an appointment with an Internist at Delta IMC for a thorough exam.
We can provide systematic guidelines and recommend the most appropriate medical weight loss products to help you reach your target weight.
