In a country where more than two out of every three adults are overweight or obese, it’s clear we have a health crisis on our hands. For some people, losing weight and keeping it off is easy. However, if you’ve struggled with being overweight your whole life, you could have a metabolic or hereditary problem that makes weight loss a real trial. You’re probably tired of trying fad diets and exercise programs that fail to provide the results you want. Many of these weight loss methods are ineffective – some are even unsafe.
Medical weight loss at Back 2 Health is different. We offer access to experienced doctors to ensure you follow a safe, effective path to long-term weight loss.
Consider the benefits of our program to help you decide if it’s right for you.
When you hear the term “medical weight loss,” you might automatically think of surgery. However, we prefer to help our patients avoid surgical procedures whenever possible. You should only consider lap band and gastric bypass surgery if you’ve tried all other non-surgical options without success. After all, while weight loss surgery is effective, it comes with plenty of risks and a long recovery time.
We take a case-by-case approach rather than instructing you to follow a blanket set of guidelines. This helps you achieve the best nutrition and weight loss success based on your medical history and lifestyle.
Your weight loss efforts don’t just improve your appearance – they also help you get your diabetes and high blood pressure under control with less medication. We’ll monitor you and advise dosage changes when your condition improves as you lose weight.
Our experienced team can offer exercise education to help you get the most from your workouts and see maximum results without hurting yourself. We base our expert advice on your current fitness level and any health problems you have, such as a heart condition or chronic pain.
Many patients find that weight loss begins quickly but then slows down as the body grows accustomed to a new diet and increased activity level. If your efforts aren’t delivering the results you want, we’ll help you overcome your plateau with medically sound advice geared specifically toward your situation.
The hardest part when you hit a plateau is maintaining the motivation to keep going. Regularly visiting with our team helps keep your motivation level high, so you don’t slip back into old habits.
Along with suggestions such as eating more fiber and protein to keep you full longer, Back 2 Health offers cutting-edge treatments to reduce hunger, curb cravings, and speed up your metabolism – all with safe, science-based techniques.
Food may have a psychological hold on you, resulting in an eating disorder or compulsive eating habits. We can refer you to a counselor if you need additional help with the mental aspect of losing weight.
Non-medically based weight loss centers can’t provide safe prescriptions to aid in weight loss. However, when you choose Back 2 Health, this is always an option if diet and exercise alone aren’t enough.
Carrying excess weight makes you four to five times more likely to develop knee osteoarthritis. Losing just 10% of your body weight reduces pressure on your knees by 28%, potentially causing a drastic improvement in your condition. If you suffer from arthritis or other conditions like excessive back pain or ankle and foot pain, your medical weight loss treatment may be covered by insurance.
If you’re tired of crash diets that don’t work and put your health at risk, turn things around with our medical weight loss program. We ensure you’ll lose weight quickly, safely, and permanently. In fact, many of our patients lose up to 30 pounds in just 30 days, starting their weight loss journey off on the right foot.
