Are you struggling to lose weight on your own? At Body Bar MD, Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson offers medical weight loss plans to patients throughout Carmel and Terre Haute, IN. Our weight loss doctors understand that diet and exercise alone may not procedure the results that our patients are looking for. During supervised weight loss treatment, we provide our patients with professional diet plans, behavior modification suggestions, and counseling. Unless you take action, weight problems can continue to worsen and affect your health. This is why supervised medical weight loss is so important.

What is medical weight loss?

With the help of our physician, Dr. Christy, at Body Bar MD, we can help our patients achieve the weight loss they are looking for with a low-calorie diet, different supplements for weight loss medications, and nutritional counseling. Obesity can lead to increased blood pressure or cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, or diabetes, all of which shorten your life. With the help of medical weight loss, our weight loss doctors can help you live a healthier and longer life in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN.

Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?

Weight loss can be difficult for different reasons for our patients. Before we design a custom treatment plan, we must determine if someone is a candidate for weight-loss treatment. Patients that are not eligible for medical weight loss treatment at Body Bar MD:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Have had cancer or a history of heart disease, kidney dysfunction, or thyroid disorder

During a consultation, Dr. Christy can discuss your medical history and perform a thorough medical exam to determine your candidacy for medical weight loss.

What happens during a medical weight loss consultation?

To receive medical weight loss help, you will have a consultation with Dr. Christy at our Carmel or Terre Haute, IN, office. She will assess your health, perform lab testing, learn about your medical history, and conduct a body composition analysis that will help determine your BMI and body fat. We approach weight loss holistically, which means we evaluate the factors that may affect your weight gain. This can include your family, your lifestyle, your health, or your mindset. We will look into emotional triggers that may affect your path to weight loss.

Some of our weight loss services include:

  1. Behavior modifications: This includes diet and exercise suggestions that reduce caloric intake.

  2. Menu plans: We provide nutritional counseling with meal plans.

  3. Weight-loss medication or supplements: HCG medication, along with a low-calorie diet, can help reset your metabolism without the feelings of hunger. Dr. Christy can also prescribe other medications based on a patient’s needs. She may offer suggestions for supplements that the patient is deficient in, which can affect their weight loss efforts.

During supervised weight loss, you will have regular check-ins to determine your progress. Dr. Christy will create a maintenance plan for patients who have achieved their weight loss goals and want to maintain them for a lifetime. She provides the support you need for long-term weight loss.
