Why can’t I lose weight?

While these hurdles can certainly make losing weight a challenge, many men and women simply struggle to find a plan that works for them. Fad workouts and crash diets are notoriously difficult to sustain, and the majority of patients that lose weight using these methods ultimately regain the weight. If this sounds like you, it may be time to consider medical weight loss.

Medically supervised weight loss is a comprehensive and highly beneficial approach to losing weight and maintaining a healthy, stable weight over time. Because every patient is unique, Dr. Christy customizes each medical weight loss program to meet the individual’s concerns, body type, health, goals, and more.
