About 70% of American adults are overweight or obese. Carrying extra pounds can make you feel self-conscious, embarrassed, and less than your best. Extra weight often makes it difficult to enjoy your favorite activities, and it can harm your quality of life.
Reaching a healthy weight by losing those extra pounds has the possibility of boosting your self-confidence and making daily life more enjoyable. A medical weight loss program can help you achieve your goal weight, even if you haven’t had success losing weight in the past.
If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can mean better health, too. In addition to affecting your confidence and quality of life, obesity puts you at a much greater risk for developing other serious health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and sleep apnea.
Losing weight isn’t easy, and following crash diet and exercise plans rarely work long-term. If you’re ready to start achieving your weight-loss goals and become a slimmer you, it’s time to learn more about medical weight loss.
James Lee, DO and the team at Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care offer customized weight loss plans for men and women. From diet and exercise to therapy and more, our medical weight loss program can help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted and become a healthier you.
Everybody is different. Your body, lifestyle, and goals are different than other people in your situation. Medical weight loss programs recognize these differences, and we customize your weight loss plan to your needs. When you start our program, we begin with a full physical exam and discuss your medical history. We work with you to understand your current habits, lifestyle, and more. We evaluate your current medical condition and start to develop strategies to help you reach your desired look.
Many people who are overweight or obese have undiagnosed medical conditions, like diabetes and high blood pressure. With your initial medical consult, we screen for chronic conditions and recommend further testing if you have a preexisting condition. Evaluating your total health is an important step toward understanding your overall wellness and how it impacts weight loss.
Your weight loss program is personalized to help you achieve your goals. Medical weight loss often includes a nutrition plan, exercise, physical therapy, behavioral therapy, and/or weight-loss medications. Depending on your body and your goals, Dr. Lee will recommend a combination of therapies along with a proper diet and exercise to help you shed those extra pounds and keep them off long-term.
