Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

What is a Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Program?

Sometimes called medical weight loss, this refers to a diet and exercise program that’s administered under the care of a highly qualified physician. The expert providers at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness are dedicated to creating customized, effective weight loss programs that offer significant results. The program includes lifestyle coaching so that healthy food choices and regular exercise help you maintain your health and your weight in the future.

How Does the Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Program Work?

The skilled physicians work to customize a weight loss program tailored to your individual goals and lifestyle. When designing your program, the first step is a comprehensive medical evaluation, which includes your medical history, and tests to rule out any health conditions that may be affecting your ability to lose weight. After considering all the factors that contribute to your current weight, your physician creates a detailed plan.

Your program may include some or all of the following:

  • Diet Plan: Your custom plan will include food that you can buy in the store and prepare at home, and Dr. G’s meal replacement shakes and protein bars, which are designed to ensure you’re getting the vitamins and nutrients your body requires.
  • Prescription Medications & Supplements: Weight loss drugs and Dr. G’s herbal supplements can reduce your appetite, your cravings for carbohydrates and sugar, and any anxiety that causes overeating, as well as increase your metabolism, and make you feel fuller faster. The physicians use patented software to precisely calibrate your medication dosages to customize treatment for maximum results.
  • Exercise Plan: Your provider works with you to develop an exercise routine that you find enjoyable and works with your daily routine. Whether you prefer to hit the gym or take more walks, your provider can create a regimen that burns calories and improves your overall fitness, energy, and health.
  • Post-Treatment Maintenance Program: Once you’ve reached your optimal weight, your provider designs a personalized maintenance program to help you maintain your new weight and healthier lifestyle.

When Will I See the Results From My Personal Weight Loss Program?

Weight loss varies from person to person and depends on factors such as:  

  • Initial weight
  • Fitness level
  • Genetics
  • Health conditions
  • Age
  • Body type

Generally speaking, you should see results within a few weeks of beginning your program if you are committed to following your doctor's instructions.
