Weight Loss Q & A

How do I know if I am overweight?

Researchers and doctors use the Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine when someone is normal weight, overweight, or obese. The BMI calculator uses your weight and height to place you in one of the following categories:

Underweight: 18.5 or less

Normal weight: 18.5 to 24.99

Overweight: 25 to 29.99

Obese: 30 to 34.99

BMI is only one of many ways to assess weight. Dr. Scott conducts a comprehensive medical exam to help you understand where you stand.

What health problems are associated with being overweight?

If you’re overweight or obese, you are at increased risk for a number of health problems, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Joint pain
  • Gout
  • Heart disease
  • Gallstones
  • High cholesterol
  • Certain cancers

Dr. Scott and her team help you make lasting changes to lose weight and optimize your health.

How does medical weight loss work?

Dr. Scott customizes her time-tested program to address your specific needs. Effective components of medical weight loss include:

  • Bloodwork and analysis
  • Comprehensive physical examination
  • Appetite suppression medication
  • Weekly weigh-ins and accountability
  • Personalized coaching
  • Diverse meal plans
  • B12 injections and other supplements

As Dr. Scott and the team monitor your progress, they make adjustments along the way that help you seamlessly weave the program into your life to keep you on the path of success.

What is the hCG diet regimen?

HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin, which is a hormone a female’s body makes when she’s pregnant. If you’ve ever seen the positive result on a pregnancy test, it’s the hCG hormone that’s responsible.

Dr. Scott and the team of diet specialists at Lori Scott Family Care use hCG to boost your metabolism and amp up your body’s ability to burn fat. During the regimen, you’ll be on an ultra-low, 500-calorie-per-day diet. But don’t worry. HCG helps you feel full and satisfied, so you aren’t tempted to give in to cravings or eat off plan.

You’ll follow the eating plan for about a month or six weeks and get an hCG shot daily. Dr. Scott customizes your program, so you’ll lose a lot of unwanted pounds quickly.
