What is medical weight loss?
Let’s first talk about what it is not…
Medical weight loss is not surgery or fads. It is weight management based on medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Trained doctors or medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary to help you achieve weight loss and maintain it for life.
Who benefits from medical weight loss?
Anyone who is concerned about their health
The United State Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that all adults get annual weight screenings.
Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. It is especially beneficial for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher because it can reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions.
What makes Palmetto Women’s Health different?
The tools we use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you might find with commercial programs. Medical weight loss providers use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress, something other plans can’t do.
Your decision to participate in the program is largely based on your motivation level to lose weight and your medical safety-risk profile. At your initial consultation visit, we will review which plans you are eligible for and the cost of each personalized plan option. Again, individualized behavioral counseling is a part of any plan you follow, which will teach you the skills necessary to maintain your weight loss for the long term.
