Weight Loss Q & A

How does medical weight loss work?

Medical weight loss isn’t a fad diet or a pill that promises instant results. Instead, medical weight loss involves meticulous planning based on your own goals, health status, and starting point. The team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. aims to help you lose excess weight and keep it off permanently by training you to adopt healthy habits.

Weight loss programs at Medical Arts Associates P.S. include:

Nutritional planning

Nutritional planning teaches you the principles of a sustainably healthy diet that lowers your calorie intake and provides the nutrients you need for energy. 

Fitness education

Fitness education teaches you to keep consistent with exercise that benefits your mind and body. Exercise helps you burn more calories than you eat in a day. 

Possible medications

Appetite suppressants aren’t for everyone, but many people can benefit from taking them as they step into new habits and adjust their diet. 

How can medical weight loss improve my health?

Medical weight loss can help you control certain conditions you already have or lower your risk of many weight-related conditions. By losing even a modest number of pounds, you lower your risk of developing:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • High triglycerides
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Depression

Of course, the team can integrate treatments for these conditions into your care plan too. They can adjust your care plan at any time with in-person and telehealth follow-up visits.

How long does it take to see results from medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss programs are different for everyone, including the time it takes to reach your goals. Rather than focusing on a quick drop in your weight, you should plan on taking weight loss slowly and steadily to maintain a moderate weight for a lifetime. 

Many fad diets and diet pills promise quick results and often deliver them. However, they don’t take maintenance into account at all. Therefore, it’s very common to reach your goal weight with these strategies and gain it back, and then some, soon after. The team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. helps you avoid the ups and downs in favor of stability.
