Developing A Medical Weight Loss Plan

If you’re ready to lose weight, Dr. Deirdre McMullen of Rocky Creek Family Medicine can help you begin your medical weight loss journey in Missouri City, TX.

The Truth About Weight Loss

There is a common theory behind weight loss – that if you eat less and exercise more, you can drop that extra weight. And while this is true to some extent, there are many things that this theory does not address.

Overeating and a lack of exercise can certainly contribute to being overweight, but there are usually other facts to consider. If it were that easy to simply eat less and exercise, obesity would not be such an epidemic.

And as those are the only two factors that traditional weight loss programs address, they tend not to work for most people. They are missing key factors, such as:

  • Psychology
  • Health issues
  • Genetics
  • Busy daily schedules
  • Overpowering addictions

These factors, along with others, can significantly impact a person’s weight, body shape, energy levels, and more. If any of these factors play a role, diet and exercise alone will not help. Medical weight loss plans in Missouri City, TX, on the other hand, take all of these factors into account.

How to Develop a Medical Weight Loss Plan

By definition, medical weight management plans are those that are recommended and supervised by a medical professional. Therefore, the first step is to team up with a physician like Dr. McMullen and Dr. Choudhury who are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals in the most healthy and comprehensive way possible.

The team at Rocky Creek Family Medicine will begin your weight loss program with an in-depth understanding of where you are and where you want to be. They will then work with you to address any unhealthy habits, genetic conditions, and psychological or medical issues that are impacting your weight.

Your program will be developed with an understanding of your schedule and time challenges. It will also be monitored so that any necessary changes can be made.

When necessary, you will be referred to specialists. For example, some patients may need behavioral therapy or psychological counseling to help with addictions. Or if you have a heart condition, you might need to see a cardiologist first. Whatever needs to be done to help you reach your weight loss goals in a healthy manner, Dr. McMullen and Dr. Choudhury will work with you to make it happen.
