No two bodies are the same, yet companies and products always push diet trends as the thing that will finally make a difference in weight loss. Before you start a weight loss program, potentially based on someone with a different body type, it’s important to consider what works best for you.
At Lori Scott Family Care, we emphasize a customized weight loss plan suitable to your body type, history, and personal goals using the hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) diet regimen. So if you want to get in better shape for health reasons, we can help you achieve fitness by creating a plan customized to your needs.
Why consider a personalized weight loss plan?
There are many layers to weight loss, including both aesthetic and health reasons. But changing your body weight always has medical implications, which is why it’s important to consult a doctor about how certain weight loss plans could affect your body.
When it comes to health issues, obesity can lead to various problems including:
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
- Joint pain
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Certain cancers
To reduce the risk of developing these health problems, starting a personalized weight loss plan with your doctor is crucial.
The benefits of a medical weight loss program
When you start a weight loss program without consulting a medical professional, you can run into unintended side effects. At best, you might end up spending your time and money on something that won’t yield the results you’d like.
With a customized medical weight loss plan, you have the benefit of your doctor performing thorough bloodwork and analysis and a physical examination to determine your exact needs, and then coming up with a suitable plan.
Throughout the process, Dr. Lori Scott will also perform weekly weigh-ins to hold you accountable and make sure you’re sticking to the plan with the resources you need. We also use appetite suppression medication to help with the common side effects of a weight loss plan, such as overeating or binging.
Whenever necessary, we will provide you with B12 injections or other supplements that will help you maintain sufficient levels of nutrients. These prevent the development of deficiencies, which can also occur with an unsupervised weight loss plan.
Finally, you can rest assured that you’ll receive personalized coaching and diverse meal plans to guide you on your weight loss journey.
With a customized medical weight loss plan, you can have the best of both worlds. If you’d like to receive proper medical guidance as well as benefit from a personalized weight loss plan that works, call Lori Scott Family Care or book an appointment online today.
