Medical Weight Loss Program Q & A
What is a medical weight loss program?
Whether you’re continuing to gain weight or are simply struggling to get down to your goal weight, carrying around extra pounds can put a serious strain on your health. A medical weight loss program involves treating you as a whole person, not just giving you medications to curb your appetite.
The entirely personalized medical weight loss program from Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness can include:
- Thyroid screening
- Exercise planning
- Hormone balancing
- Stress reduction therapies
- Nutrition counseling and dietary planning
- Prescription-strength, FDA-approved, weight-loss medications
Plus, Dr. Harris and Mishael have you check in regularly to evaluate your progress, talk about your struggles, and of course, counsel you about steps for success. At Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness, it isn’t just about losing weight; it’s about changing your mindset and making healthy lifestyle choices to last a lifetime.
What happens during a medical weight loss consultation?
The compassionate team at Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness love spending time getting to know you individually. By learning about you, your daily routine, and the things you enjoy, they can better tailor your medical weight loss plan for optimal success.
In most cases, you meet with Mishael, who’s a board-certified family nurse practitioner, nutritional counselor, and transformational health coach. After sitting down and talking with you, Mishael works side-by-side with Dr. Harris to tailor your weight-loss plan. Depending on your needs and your overall health, your consultation may include:
- Personal health history screening
- Blood pressure check
- Blood testing
Because Mishael may need to prescribe medications or change the medications you’re currently taking, it’s important to bring in a list of all medications you take, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements.
Medical weight loss consultations are generally scheduled for Wednesday mornings, with some Monday availability. Once you call the office at (844) 845-8737 to schedule your initial visit, look out for a follow-up email that gives a general outline of the program that serves as a foundation for your personalized program.
How much weight can I lose on a medical weight loss program?
The goal of the customized medical weight loss plan from Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness is for you to transform from the inside out. Just as you didn’t put those extra pounds on overnight, you won’t lose them overnight.
In general, Mishael and Dr. Harris want to see you lose weight slow and steadily, like one to two pounds per week (you may certainly lose more). By focusing on small weekly goals, you’ll get to your end goal and have a much higher success rate of keeping the weight off.
With the help of the dedicated team at Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness, you can feel better, look better, and be able to live better once you start your medical weight loss plan.
Congratulations on making a decision to improve your overall state of health by getting started on a medical weight loss plan at Nurturing You Women’s Health & Wellness. Request your evaluation with Dr. Harris through the online scheduler, or by calling/texting the office.
