Do I Have to Follow a Restrictive Diet?
Our nutritionist will talk to you about the food you usually eat and help you understand the foods that will help you lose weight. Learning healthy eating is part of any medical weight loss program. This program does not include a starvation diet, however, quite the opposite. You will have some prepared meals and you will learn to prepare delicious meals with the ingredients you love so you reduce the cravings for unhealthy, high-calorie food. You will eat a wide variety of foods with healthy carbohydrates, proteins and fats that are necessary for a healthy body.
Will I Lose a Lot of Weight?
Medical weight loss is a customized program for each individual. The amount of weight you lose depends on your medical history, lifestyle, metabolism, exercise regimen, and dietary habits. The average for a healthy person is eight to 12 pounds a month. Some people may lose weight quicker than others because of their nutritional needs, exercise and caloric intake.
Will I Have an Exercise Plan?
Exercise is an important part of any weight loss program because it is the main catalyst for changing your metabolism. The beauty of medical weight loss is you will be given an exercise regimen that is suitable for your abilities.
