5 Reasons Why a Medically Supervised Weight-Loss Program Works

There’s no shortage of reasons to lose weight. Being overweight is a problem that more than four out of every 10 Americans face, and diabetes, some forms of cancer, heart disease, and stroke are just a few of the conditions that accompany the excess pounds. Losing the weight can ease the burden on arthritic joints, put less stress on your heart, and keep your sugar levels in check, but it’s not always an easy process.

Medically assisted weight loss gives you the jump on self-managed diet and exercise plans. The team at Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group specializes in custom weight loss solutions, matching your plan with your specific nutritional needs and weight loss goals. Here are five of the biggest advantages medically-assisted weight loss offers.

1. Considers your overall health

While plenty of diets make sense, each time you choose a plan on your own there’s guesswork involved. Is it the right plan for you? Does it take your health and nutritional needs into account? Can you get advice and guidance about the right types and levels of activity for you?

When you choose a medically assisted plan with Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group, you start with knowledgeable physicians familiar with your health and weight loss goals. They know the potential risk factors you face, so you can focus on the lifestyle changes that offer you the best chances for long-term success.

2. Provides a customized diet plan

Changing the way you eat isn’t easy. When you give up cigarettes, there’s no “right” level to have — you cut them all out of your life. You can’t do that with food. It’s the fuel that your body needs to function, to heal, and let’s face it, it brings a great deal of pleasure, directly and indirectly.

An eating plan should consider your food preparation abilities as well as your former habits. In many cases, patients need to address and change their relationship with food so they can maintain good habits. Medical supervision also means you have access to prescription medications to suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism.

3. Matches exercise goals with your abilities

Look to your doctor to direct activities in line with your current health. Adding modest amounts of exercise produces remarkable benefits, but it’s easy to overdo it. Fitness plans need to carry reasonable markers so you can meet goals, while remaining challenging enough to produce results. Knowledge of your arthritic knee, for example, suggests some activities are out of reach. This is an overview you might miss without medical assistance.

4. Provides built-in support and accountability

Enlisting the help of the team at Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group provides you with a support network that’s equal parts resource and cheerleader. You’re not alone throughout your weight loss journey, and you have a partner to whom you’ll report. No more losing weight loss goals to self-sabotage.

5. Gives you aesthetic finishing

When you finally hit your weight target, the fun is just beginning. Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group also has a wide range of aesthetic services to help you achieve the look that you’ve always wanted. Whether you want to tighten your skin, reduce the appearance of scars, or remove moles and skin tags, your weight loss partners still have you covered.
