What is Weight Management?

Medical weight management involves medical interventions—such as medications, nutrition counseling, and exercise programs—to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. This approach is typically recommended for people who are overweight or obese and have not been able to achieve weight loss through diet and exercise alone.

Medical weight management aims not simply to help you lose weight. It is about improving your overall health. The results help you reduce the risk of obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer.

How to Lose Weight Effectively With a Weight Management Program

Medical weight loss programs involve more than just one weight management doctor. They typically involve a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including physicians, dietitians, and exercise specialists, who work together to develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

Your weight loss management program may include:

  • Nutritional counseling: This involves working with a registered dietitian who provides guidance on healthy eating habits and helps you to develop a personalized nutrition plan that fits your lifestyle and weight loss goals.
  • Exercise programs may include supervised exercise programs, such as aerobics or strength training, to help you increase your physical activity and burn calories.
  • Medications: Several FDA-approved medications assist with weight loss, such as appetite suppressants or medications that block fat absorption.
  • Behavioral therapy: This involves working with a therapist or counselor to address underlying emotional and psychological issues that may be contributing to overeating or unhealthy eating habits.

The length of the program may vary depending on your starting weight and the amount of weight loss necessary to achieve a healthy weight. You will undergo regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress and adjust treatment plans as needed.
