Can I Do Medical Weight Loss?
If you are overweight and find the task of losing weight daunting or you don't know where to begin, Body Bar MD may be able to help. If you've lost weight but need help losing those last stubborn pounds and figuring out how to maintain that weight with a healthy exercise and diet routine, we can help. If you are interested in creating, meeting, and maintaining weight loss goals, an initial consultation with Dr. Christy can help you decide if you would be a good candidate for Body Bar MD's medical weight loss program. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of heart disorder, thyroid disorder, kidney dysfunction, or cancer, medical weight loss may not be for you.
How Can Medical Weight Loss Help Me?
At Body Bar MD, we will begin your weight loss journey by getting to know each other. You'll likely have questions for us, but we have some for you, too! We'll spend some time discussing past weight loss experiences, health conditions, desired goals and outcomes, and more. We'll perform a health assessment, and may also take measurements with the Inbody 720 scanner that will help us create a weight loss program that is specifically tailored to you. Included in your weight loss program will be a unique diet plan to help you make healthy and smart food choices. Dr. Christy may recommend the Robard New Direction program, depending on your starting BMI. You will also receive one-on-one counseling to help you combat any struggles you may be having with food addiction and commitment to the program, as well as behavior modification to help you look at and address your weight loss journey in a new way. In some cases, weight loss medication may be prescribed. We will work together to blend these services to meet your specific goals and help you with your struggle spots. If you have any questions, Dr. Christy will be here along the way to help and encourage you.
How Does Follow-Up Work with Medical Weight Loss?
Your initial appointment with Dr. Christy will be about an hour with periodic follow-ups to check on your progress. The length of your medical weight loss program will depend on your specific goals; however, you can typically expect to be in the program for weeks or months. Counseling, behavior modification, and diet planning may require additional follow-ups, depending on your individual requirements. We will closely monitor your health and progress throughout your participation in the program and will make adjustments as needed. Dr. Christy and the team are here to help you make your goals as attainable as possible.
Medical Weight Loss FAQ
How is medical weight loss different from normal dieting?
Medical weight loss differs from a normal diet plan in that it often includes metabolic and diagnostic testing, appetite-suppressant medications, nutritional supplements, and more, in addition to a diet and exercise plan. Dr. Christy will talk to you about your weight loss goals and medical history to create a customized medical weight loss plan to help you shed those stubborn pounds and reach a healthy target weight.
How long is a medical weight loss program?
Depending on your starting point and your weight loss goals, each plan will be different. On average, you can expect a medical weight loss program to take a few weeks to a couple of months.
Is medical weight loss safe?
Yes, medical weight loss plans are safe when administered and supervised by an experienced physician like Dr. Christy. Your medical weight loss program at Body Bar MD will take into account your medical history, current health, and goals to ensure your weight loss is safe and effective. You will be supervised during every step of your weight loss plan with encouragement and testing, allowing Dr. Christy to make any changes if necessary.
Does medical weight loss work?
Most diet plans fail because people try to do them on their own. With a medical weight loss plan, not only will you have concrete goals and milestones to guide you, Dr. Christy will monitor your progress and give you the direction and encouragement you need to meet your goals. Many people have effectively lost more weight with a medical weight loss program than they could have with a regular diet and exercise plan.
