Find out turning to a doctor in Missouri City could just help you finally shed those pounds.medical weight loss

Losing weight isn’t easy, despite the obvious and most common advice to eat healthy and exercise regularly. All bodies are different, and with a slew of new lifestyle changes and diets like Paleo and the Whole30 it’s common for people to attempt these but end up going back to their old habits. This is where our Missouri City, TX, family physicians come in.

What is medical weight loss?

The key to weight loss is finding a doctor in Missouri City who can create an individualized weight loss program while also providing you guidance and supervision throughout the course of the program. The program will also give you the tools and education you need to understand what you should be eating (and what you should avoid) and how to exercise for your health.

What are the benefits of choosing a medical weight loss program?

As you might already be able to tell, a supervised medical weight loss program means that you have our doctor there to answer any of your questions, address any concerns, and provide you with the supervision and guidance you need to understand the choices you are making to create a healthy lifestyle for the long term.

Since many people end up failing diet or lifestyle changes because they don’t truly understand the foods that support a healthy diet, as well as portion control and other factors, with a doctor by your side the success rate is much higher. Furthermore, these weight loss programs are tailored to your individual needs. We know that everyone’s body is different and responds differently based on factors such as metabolism and chronic health conditions. With all of these health factors accounted for, we can focus on creating a weight loss program that fits your specific needs.

Some programs offer prepackaged meals while other programs provide you with specific foods you can eat (and foods to avoid) and different recipes. We will also provide you with insight and suggestions for how to incorporate exercise into your daily life, as well as determine whether you need weight loss medications or supplements to help you shed those pounds.

Do you have questions about the right weight loss program to fit your specific needs, goals, and current health status? Then call our Missouri City, TX, doctors' office today and schedule a one-on-one with us. Let’s help you achieve your weight loss goals this year!
