What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is weight management based on medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Trained doctors or medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary to help you achieve weight loss and maintain it for life.

Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. It is especially beneficial for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher because it can reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions.

The tools that medical weight loss providers use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you might find with commercial programs. Medical weight loss providers use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress, something other plans can’t do. See the chart for other differences…
