Weight management is more than a diet. It refers to long-term lifestyle changes that are tailored to help you reach and remain at a healthy weight based on your age, sex, and height.
Medical weight management is unique to your situation, but in general, some of the main focuses are:
Some health problems, such as nutritional deficiencies, diabetes, and thyroid disease, can cause cravings and other issues affecting your eating. At the beginning of your weight management program, you have a complete health and lifestyle evaluation to check for problems and warning signs of disease.
Your customized eating plan adapts to your personal preferences and goals. Eating plans are nutritionally balanced and focus on helping you reach your weight goals without starving or feeling deprived all the time. Long-term change is critical, so you learn healthy eating principles you can draw upon for a lifetime, long after you reach your goals.
Some patients in medical weight loss programs may qualify for oral medications, supplements, injections, or other weight loss boosters. These products work hand-in-hand with your customized eating plan. Generally, weight loss boosters are more of a short-term measure to jump-start your progress in the early weeks and months of your weight loss journey.
Reaching your goal weight is just one aspect of weight loss. To keep the weight off, you should keep practicing the new principles you’ve learned. Gorman Medical, PC, is always here to guide you with support for your weight maintenance.
Weight management can lead to a new figure, but it’s even more significant for your bodywide health. Losing weight can lower your cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Maintaining a healthy weight gives you more energy and better sleep and can even improve your mood and self-esteem.
