Weight Loss Q&A

Why is it so hard to lose weight?

Sometimes losing weight is more than just counting calories or exercising more, especially if you have a medical condition that makes it difficult to lose weight.

While increasing your physical activity and reducing calorie intake are essential aspects of weight loss, learning what to eat and how much can help improve your chances of success.

​​​​​​​With doctor-supervised weight loss at Live Well Wellness Center, you’ll learn how your body burns calories, how many calories you need to consume in a day, and safe ways to incorporate exercise.

What health conditions can benefit from weight loss?

Maintaining healthy body weight is critical for good health overall, but it’s imperative if you have any of the following medical conditions:

  • High cholesterol

  • Hypertension

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Thyroid disease

  • Diabetes

  • Certain types of cancer

​​​​​​​Carrying excess body weight increases your risk of developing these medical conditions, among others, and can make it challenging to manage these conditions successfully if you’ve already been diagnosed. Live Well Wellness Center offers personalized weight loss plans to improve your health and help you regain confidence in your body and appearance.

What is doctor-supervised weight loss?

Doctor-supervised weight loss involves a physical exam and thorough assessment to understand your current struggles with weight, such as eating habits and lifestyle behaviors that might make weight loss difficult.

The team uses this information and medical data – such as your weight, hormones, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels – to create a complete picture of how your body burns calories.

They calculate how many calories you need to consume daily to lose weight safely.

​​​​​​​They also provide you with resources and extensive education to learn what to eat, how much to eat, how to read nutrition labels for weight loss, and how to eat better for any medical conditions you might have.

What are the benefits of doctor-supervised weight loss?

Since doctor-supervised weight loss takes into account your specific health and caloric needs, it has numerous benefits, including:

  • Personalized weight loss plans

  • Realistic goal setting

  • Resources for learning about nutrition, counting calories, and safe types of exercise

  • Ongoing support

  • Evidence-based information to support weight loss if you have a medical condition

  • Safe and long-lasting weight loss

Doctor-supervised weight loss plans provide a unique solution for carrying excess weight that is both effective and safe.
