How Much Weight Can an Obese Person Lose with Medical Weight Loss?
At school, at work, and in life in general, we’re often encouraged to ask for help when we need it – and, more importantly, reminded that there’s no shame in doing so. When it comes to losing weight, that advice holds true. If you’re like many men and women, it can be challenging or even feel impossible to lose weight on your own. Even when you do lose weight, you may have trouble keeping it off for more than a few weeks or months at a time. Whatever your struggles with weight loss and obesity may be, the caring team at Gard Wellness Solutions in West Palm Beach, FL is here to listen and help. With fully customizable medical weight loss management programs, we help patients near Orlando, Miami, Boca Raton, and Jupiter, FL regain control of their lives and conquer obesity. Curious about how much weight you may be able to lose with medical obesity management? Let’s find out.
What is a medical weight loss program?
Sometimes referred to as medically assisted weight loss or medically supervised weight loss, a medical weight loss plan is a custom-tailored program designed to help overweight or obese patients lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way and improve their overall health.
What’s included in a medical weight loss program?
Medical weight management programs are designed specifically to help meet the patient’s unique needs and often include a combination of the following:
- Physical evaluation
- Nutritional counseling
- Nutritional plan
- Behavioral evaluation/modification
- Blood work/metabolic panel
- Semaglutide injections (appetite suppressant)
- Injection and supplement therapy
- Fitness guidance/workout plan
- Ongoing monitoring and support
Am I a candidate for medically assisted weight loss?
Generally speaking, ideal candidates for a medical weight loss program at Gard Wellness Solutions:
- Are adults between ages 18 and 65
- Have a BMI of 30 or more (or a BMI of 27 or more with a weight-related condition)
- Have 20+ pounds to lose
- Have exhausted traditional diet and exercise efforts
- Are fully committed to the process
How much weight can you lose with a medical weight loss plan?
There is no maximum amount of weight a patient can lose with a medically supervised weight loss plan, barring an unhealthy amount of weight loss. Many patients who simply pair a healthy diet and dedicated exercise routine with semaglutide injections alone have been able to achieve a 10 – 20% reduction in weight in less than 18 months. With a full medical weight loss plan for obesity at Gard Wellness Solutions, as well as a commitment to the guidelines of your program and a healthy lifestyle overall, it may be possible to achieve several hundred pounds of weight loss (depending on your starting weight). During your initial consultation, our expert team will formulate a weight loss plan and realistic goals that can help you achieve success – and maintain it.
