Weight Loss Q & A
What is medically supervised weight loss?
Medically supervised weight loss is a custom treatment program designed to help you lose weight and keep it off. Most people gain weight because of the natural aging process, but there are steps you can take to prevent it.
Partnering with Amy and the team at OPTIMIZED WELLNESS can help you stay on track and achieve your weight-loss goals.
Who can benefit from weight loss?
If you’re overweight or obese, medically supervised weight loss can help you lose weight and keep it from coming back. It can also reduce your risk of more serious complications if you have an underlying health problem, like:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Low back pain
- Thyroid disease
- Sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea
You might also benefit from medically supervised weight loss if you have a behavioral disorder, such as depression or anxiety. Some studies suggest losing weight may improve your mood, outlook, and mobility.
What happens during a weight-loss consultation?
During a weight-loss consultation, Amy reviews your medical records and asks about your health and lifestyle, including if you have any underlying conditions, if you smoke or drink alcohol, and how often you exercise.
Next, Amy completes a physical exam and may order lab work. After gathering a complete picture of your health, she makes treatment recommendations.
What does medically supervised weight loss involve?
At OPTIMIZED WELLNESS, medically supervised weight loss focuses on three areas:
Losing weight requires you to eat a balanced and nutritious diet. Amy can recommend meals and snacks that feature fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
You need to stay physically active to maintain muscle mass, improve cardio health, and burn calories. Exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week is one of the most effective ways to keep your weight in check. Amy can recommend exercises that align with your abilities and fitness level.
Peptides are building blocks of proteins that play a role in various bodily functions. A series of peptide injections may help complement your weight-loss efforts, ensuring you reach your goals.
