You’ve tried every diet program out there, and then some. You’ve lost weight and felt good; then, you gained it all back - plus some. When your body loses weight, it goes through numerous physiological and metabolic changes. Medically monitoring and addressing these changes as they occur, helps the body safely and successfully lose weight and keep it off.
In-Depth Medical Evaluation
Before a customized medically monitored weight loss program is created for you, you will undergo an in-depth medical evaluation. Our Medical Director, Dr. J. Shah, along with our expert medical staff, will perform the following:
- A review of your overall health history
- A review of all of the Medications and supplements that you may be taking to determine if they are preventing you from losing weight.
- Conduct a comprehensive blood test to check for insulin resistance, thyroid function, and other factors.
- A EKG (electro-cardiogram) and physical exam to check heart function and overall health.
Using this information, Dr. Shah will create a program that will help you safely and effectively lose weight, and most importantly, keep it off.
Sound Medical Analysis
Dr. Shah will analyze various factors, including your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and your body’s composition of water, muscle, and fat to accurately predict the minimum amount of weight you will be able to safely lose over a specific period of time.
Safe and Effective Weight Loss
If we diet incorrectly, our body’s natural tendency is to burn muscle before it burns fat. This is why you gain back the weight after stopping a diet – muscle is instrumental in the fat burning process, and why improper dieting can be so unsafe.
Medically supervised weight loss is different. Our medical team will consistently monitor your body composition and will adjust your program accordingly. We will make sure that you are burning fat and not muscle. This monitoring will allow you to have an easier time keeping the weight off in the future.
