Lose Weight & Keep It Off With Our Medical Weight Loss Program

Approximately 42 percent of the American population is obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control. When you are overweight, your quality of life can be reduced, and your lifespan can be shortened. In fact, being overweight can increase the risk of a variety of health conditions, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

Losing weight can seem impossible, especially if you have tried several diets and been unable to lose weight or have lost weight only to gain it back once you go off a diet. Collaborating with a weight loss doctor can help you lose the weight you want and keep it off.

What Is Involved in a Successful Weight Loss Plan?

Weight loss is much more than calorie counting and following an extreme exercise program. In order to successfully lose weight and keep it off, you have to make lasting lifestyle changes. A successful weight loss plan will be under the guidance of a doctor who is knowledgeable in the field of weight management.

Georges Jabaly, MD will use his knowledge to create a realistic weight loss plan that takes into account your health and other unique circumstances. The doctor will work with you to provide you with the steps needed to lose weight and keep it off once and for all.

What to Expect

At your first appointment, it is vital that you are totally honest with Dr. Jabaly. During this meeting, your initial weight will be discussed as well as your ideal weight. The doctor will work with you to create a doctor supervised weight loss plan that is designed to help you meet your weight loss goals as well as making healthy lifestyle changes.

When you walk out of the office after the first visit, you will have a variety of tools in your arsenal to help ensure your weight loss success. However, in order for your weight loss journey to be successful, you must be willing to work hard to make changes in the way you eat, say goodbye to unhealthy lifestyle choices, and start changing some of the behaviors that have caused you to gain weight.

Why Do You Gain Weight?

The first question that must be answered is why you have gained weight. Has a medical issue risen that has caused your weight gain? Are you no longer as active as you once were? Are you experiencing chronic stress? Are you stress eating, eating too much processed foods, or snacking at night?

Weight gain happens when you take in more calories than you burn. There are many things that can impact your metabolism, including an imbalanced digestive tract, an illness or disease, and a sedentary lifestyle.

Learning the key reasons why you have gained weight will help you realize what you need to do to lose weight and keep it off permanently.

Understanding Diet and Weight Loss

In order to effectively lose the weight, you must create a calorie deficit by consuming less calories than your body uses. The number of calories you burn is based on a quite involved calculation that takes into account your height, weight, age, and activity level. In addition to this, your body composition and body size can impact the number of calories you should consume each day to lose weight.

In addition to this, different types of food have different calorie counts. Each type of food is metabolized differently, which means a calorie from a protein can impact weight differently than a calorie from fat or carbohydrates. There are many different plans based on the different types of calories, including low carb diets, high protein diets, and fasting.

Dr. Jabaly will recommend the best diet based on your unique health needs, food preferences, and activity levels. This diet will provide you with an eating schedule to help maximize your weight loss efforts.

Understanding Exercise and Weight Loss

When you are trying to lose weight, exercise is extremely important. Many people think exercise is only done in a gym; however, any activity that gets your heart pumping burns excess calories. Dr. Jabaly will recommend specific weight loss exercises based on your current health, your weight loss goals, and your day to day schedule.

At a minimum, you should plan to get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise 5 days per week. In addition to this, you should ensure you are doing both strength training activities and aerobic activities to maximize your health and lose weight. In the beginning, it may seem impossible to get this much exercise; however, you can break your exercise down into small segments that can be done throughout the day.

Why Do Medical Weight Loss Plans Work?

Physician directed weight loss plans are designed based on your unique health, lifestyle choices, and weight loss goals. Rather than a one size fits all weight loss plan, a medical weight loss program is designed with your in mind.

Throughout your weight loss journey, there will be times when it seems like nothing is working. You can get discouraged and want to give up. Dr. Jabaly and his staff will provide you with the attention you need to stay the course. The team of dedicated weight loss specialists will cheer you on, explain what is going on when you hit a weight loss plateau, and make changes as needed to help you reach your weight loss goals.

One of the most important things to remember when you are trying to lose weight is that it takes time. Your weight gain did not happen overnight, and neither will your weight loss. However, if you put in the effort, you will lose weight and learn to keep it off.

A medically directed weight loss plan employs scientifically proven results that help you achieve the healthy lifestyle you need to improve your quality of life and counteract the many issues surrounding weight gain, including depression, social isolation, and the numerous dangerous health issues related to obesity.
