If you want to lose weight, finding the motivation and the right information to form your own plan can be daunting and difficult.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a science-based approach to losing weight. During medical weight loss, you work alongside a trained physician to identify the areas of your health that need work in order to reduce the amount of fat on your body.

If you’re overweight or obese and have tried countless diet plans, supplements, and other strategies, medical weight loss can help you get back on track toward meeting your goals.

Your medical weight-loss plan at Reliant MD Group starts with a consultation where you and your provider evaluate your current health and make specific, achievable goals.

What are the health benefits of weight loss?

Losing weight isn’t beneficial for your health if you’re underweight or already at the low end of a healthy weight, so it’s important to find out your body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI) before you start a medical weight-loss program.

If your provider at Reliant MD Group decides that losing weight would make you healthier, you can proceed with your personalized program. Losing weight can help treat or lower your risk of getting these conditions and complications:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Joint pain
  • Back pain
  • Sleep apnea

Losing weight doesn’t just benefit your physical health. It can also help you lead a more fulfilling life. You might experience a boost in self-esteem and feel more energized or motivated to go out and have fun after losing weight.

What should I expect during my medical weight-loss plan?
