Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss doesn’t rely on faddish diets or invasive surgery. Instead, it’s weight management grounded in medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of weight gain and obesity.

The goal of the weight loss program at Wandisan and Rosete Medical Group is guiding and supporting you on your weight loss journey — to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.

Though medical weight loss can be tailored to a range of weight loss goals — whether it’s losing 10 pounds or 100 pounds — it’s particularly beneficial if your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher. This is because the program can help to reduce your risk of other serious medical conditions.

And, unlike other weight loss programs, Wandisan and Rosete Medical Group’s plan tracks your metabolism and body composition as true indicators of your progress as you lose weight.

How can I lose weight with diet and exercise?

Cutting calories is part of the weight loss equation. Generally, if you cut around 500-1,000 calories from your daily diet, you'll drop one to two pounds per week.

You also should make time for regular exercise, and certain activities burn more calories than others. Here are a few examples of the number of calories burned by a 160-pound person in one hour of exercise:

  • 292 calories: Bicycling at 10 mph or less
  • 314 calories: Walking at 3.5 mph
  • 365 calories: Workout on an elliptical machine
  • 423 calories: Swimming laps
  • 606 calories: Running at 5 mph

You may burn more or fewer calories depending on your weight and the intensity of your workout.

How else can I lose weight?

If you’re ready for a lasting weight loss plan, Wandisan and Rosete Medical Group offers a weight loss program to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Components of the plan include fat-burning injections and the diet medicine Phentermine.

Fat-burning injections

Lipoplex is an injection of vitamin B-12, which is regarded as safe in large amounts, along with other ingredients. The shots may be given weekly in conjunction with a weight loss plan that includes diet and exercise.

Phentermine

Phentermine is a diet medication that can suppress your appetite or make you feel full longer. Your doctor prescribes the medicine as part of an overall weight loss program.

In addition, Wandisan and Rosete Medical Group provides meal replacements to help you achieve your goal of a healthier weight. Learn more by calling today or booking a consultation online.
