Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Diet and exercise aren’t always enough to reach your weight loss goals. With medically supervised plans, you have a trained expert on your side to achieve and maintain sustainable weight loss. Whether you have a chronic condition, like diabetes, or a body mass index (BMI) higher than 30, medical weight loss is customized to meet your unique needs.

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

During your initial consultation, board-certified nurse practitioner Tysharra Belfon performs a complete physical exam and medical history review. She also uses a biometric analysis to identify factors that may interfere with your ability to lose weight.

A biometric analysis measures your:

  • BMI

  • Body fat percentage

  • Hydration level

  • Metabolic function

After collecting necessary information about your health, which includes taking measurements, photos, and performing a wellness assessment, Mrs. Belfon can create a customized plan for successful and healthy weight loss.

What is included in my medical weight loss plan?

While your medical weight loss program is custom-made to suit your needs, each plan includes four important steps: initial consultation, prescription and dietary supplements, lifestyle changes, and daily exercise.

Depending on your biometric analysis, Mrs. Belfon may recommend:

  • Following a calorie-deficit diet

  • Increasing exercise levels

  • Quitting smoking

  • Prescription supplements

  • IV hydration therapy

  • Reducing your stress levels

Following your custom treatment plan can help you build muscle mass, reduce fat, and maintain a healthy weight.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Along with improving your self-esteem and confidence, healthy weight loss can:

  • Prevent chronic disease

Carrying excess weight increases your risk of developing many chronic diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), and cardiovascular disease. Weight loss not only prevents chronic disease, it also reduces the symptoms of existing conditions.

  • Relieve chronic pain

If you have a chronic condition, like arthritis, excess weight can put pressure on your damaged joints and cause further inflammation.

  • Boost energy levels

Chronic inflammation is often the result of carrying excess weight. By maintaining a healthy weight, you can reduce inflammation in your body to boost your energy levels.
