Weight loss clinics work with their patients to build individually tailored weight loss programs to help their patients safely lose weight and keep it off. With so many options in the market and media for weight loss, it can be hard to know where to turn for help with losing weight. A weight loss clinic will take the time to get to know you, understand your current medical condition and previous medical history, understand your goals and find out where you have struggled or hit roadblocks with weight loss in the past. Weight loss challenges can sometimes be related to physical or mental issues that are preventing people from losing the weight they want, and potentially causing the person to gain more weight as a result. A weight loss clinic will build a weight loss management plan that will not only help the patient lose the weight but will provide them with the education and knowledge to make smart, healthy choices to be able to keep the weight off for the long-term.
Mass media, social media and many companies have made us believe that we can lose weight fast by following a fad diet or following the newest exercise craze. While some of these tactics can work to get excess weight off fast, many people who follow the plans find that they gain the weight back, with some additional weight, shortly after finishing the program. So while weight can be dropped quickly, it is not typically dropped safely or in a sustainable way. The best way to lose weight is to do so safely with the help and guidance of a team of professionals that can include doctors, psychiatrists, physiotherapists and other medical professionals who are trained in working with patients looking to lose weight in a healthy, sustainable manner. Losing weight quickly can be dangerous to your health as well, particularly if you are not consuming enough calories for your bodily functions to work properly or if you are over-exerting yourself to the point of exhaustion or causing overuse or repetitive strain injuries.
Medical weight loss involves a holistic approach to weight loss that examines your overall physical health, as well as your mental health. Medical weight loss is done under the care and supervision of trained medical professionals who have experience working with patients looking to lose weight. Medical weight loss will examine all facets of the patient’s health, looking at their age, current weight, lifestyle, sleep patterns, food intake, activity level, exercise habits and any other factors that can contribute to weight gain or an inability to lose weight. They will also look at the patient’s health to determine if there are any underlying medical conditions that would be impacting the patient’s health and weight. Stress, poor sleep habits and low self-esteem, among other mental health issues can be tied to weight gain, so working with a mental health professional may be part of a medical weight loss plan to ensure that the root cause of the weight issue is being addressed. Unlike fad diets, diet pills and extreme weight loss exercise programs, medical weight loss plans work with each individual patient on a plan tailored to their unique situation and goals, providing the patient with valuable educational information to not only help them lose weight, but allow them to keep it off for the long-term.
