Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss is a custom treatment program designed to help you shed excess pounds. If you’re overweight and have tried several of the many fad diets exercise routines that are out there without results, consider teaming up with Dr. Weng.

Losing even a small amount of weight can improve your health. When you maintain a healthy weight, you’re much less likely to experience heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and even certain cancers.

What does medically supervised weight loss involve?

Dr. Weng’s medically supervised weight loss program involves several aspects, including:

Nutritional counseling

The meals and snacks that you eat directly affect your health and energy levels. If you want to lose fat and keep it off, you must eat a nutritious and balanced diet. Dr. Weng’s nutritional recommendations will be appropriate for your age, activity level, and health history.

Exercise guidance

If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you must stay physically active. Even if you aren’t a fan of the gym, there are plenty of low-impact activities that can help you burn calories, including walking, biking, and swimming. Dr. Weng’s recommendations will be appropriate to your fitness level.

Prescription medicine

In some cases, diet and exercise aren’t enough to achieve noticeable weight loss. If you struggle to reach your goals, Dr. Weng could recommend prescription medicine. There are drugs that speed up your metabolism and others that suppress your appetite.

When will I see the results of medical weight loss?

The time it takes for you to see results of medical weight loss will depend on many things, including your commitment to the treatment plan and how closely you follow your provider’s instructions.

Most people experience a reduction in their overall weight within 2-3 months, but it can take longer. To ensure that the process goes smoothly, attend your checkups and closely follow your diet and exercise plans.
