What is Medically Supervised Weight Loss?
Medically supervised weight loss is by far the most effective way to lose weight and keep it off. 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.
New for 2020, Dr. Navita Modi has expanded her services to offer a medically supervised weight loss program to her patients, personalized to each individual’s needs. A medically supervised weight loss program allows for the customization each patient needs to reach her goal, while providing regular support and accountability to sustain her on her weight loss journey. Dr. Modi is committed to the health of her patients, and is proud to be a weight loss partner to her patients.
Health Conditions Caused By Weight Gain/Obesity
Obesity places your body in a strenuous state in which it is forced to work significantly harder in order to maintain bodily functions. Your heart strains to circulate blood, which puts you at risk for pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions. Your Joints and connective tissues struggle with the additional weight, often meaning disc herniations, and knee/ ankle complications. The list of side effects includes but is not limited to:
- Heart Disease/Heart Attack
- Breathing conditions
- Circulatory problems
- Clogged Arteries
- High Cholesterol
- Low/High Blood Pressure
- More susceptible to mobility injuries (knee and ankle)
Obesity Can Affect Your Quality of Life
Health conditions aside, you need to consider the effect obesity is having on your quality of life. Being severely overweight takes a toll on your body, it quickly drains you of energy and prevents you from engaging in social activities with family and friends. You might be too sore or too tired to play with your kids, go for a walk with some friends, and the majority of physical exercise simply isn’t possible.
Suffering from obesity adds an extra layer of difficulty to life, it could be severe enough to prevent you from simple activities like taking the stairs or being able to sit and stand unassisted. But it’s important to realize that there are choices you can make that will yield results. Making a change to your diet can drastically improve your health and allow you to shed weight.
How Can a Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program Help Me?
Lose Weight The Healthy Way
The most obvious step is to get you to lose weight. Simply by providing a diet specific to your needs, we are able to put the body into a fat-burning state that is still healthy. The effects of a diet such as this are compounding, meaning once you begin to lose weight and unburden your body from the strain that it is under, it will respond by starting to show some of the benefits of living at a healthy weight.
Regulate Your Lifestyle
Secondly, but just as important as diet, is uncovering what you do on a daily basis that contributes to your obesity, and adapting those actions to help instead of hurt you. For example, the number of hours a day you are sedentary (sitting, laying down, minimal movement). We want to show you that there are ways to make constructive progress that can start as small changes, and build into habits that will continue to improve your health if you remain dedicated!
