Weight Loss Q & A

 

Why is weight loss important?

If you’re overweight or obese, weight loss is important because reaching and maintaining a healthy weight benefits your physical, mental, and emotional health. Our team at InCare specializes in weight loss because we see it as a preventive tool for many common health issues. 

Some of the benefits of weight loss include:

  • Reduced blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  • Less stress on joints
  • Improved sleep
  • Lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure
  • Reduced risk of certain types of cancer

Weight loss also gives you a boost in self-confidence and self-esteem, and it may provide the push you need to pursue new job opportunities or social activities that can change your life. 

What can I expect during a weight loss consultation?

Our providers conduct comprehensive examinations when you come to the office for a weight loss consultation. In addition to reviewing your medical history and conducting a physical exam, we also perform a biometric assessment to determine your body composition and use the findings to develop your weight loss program and determine the best diet plan for you.

To better understand your weight struggles, your provider also reviews your weight history and the types of diets you’ve tried in the past. They also talk to you about your current diet and exercise routine.

What type of diet can help me lose weight?

Your provider understands that one diet doesn’t work for everyone, so they develop a personalized weight loss diet plan that fits your lifestyle, health needs, and weight loss goals. We may suggest you consider a low-carb, low-calorie diet to help you meet your goals. 

When you participate in the weight loss program at InCare, you meet with or are supervised by a physician at every visit. 

Are appetite suppressants available?

The InCare team understands how hunger can make following a weight loss diet challenging and may potentially set you up for failure. To help you succeed in your weight loss program, they may offer prescription appetite suppressants, which help keep your hunger pangs at bay, making it easier for you to stick with your weight loss plan.

When it comes to weight loss, you shouldn’t have to do it on your own. For expert care from a medical weight loss specialist, call InCare or request an appointment online today.
