Am I A Candidate For Medical Weight Loss?
Many people can benefit from a medical weight loss program at Mid Cities Direct Primary Care, but the ideal candidates include men and women who:
- Are between the ages of 18 – 65
- Have not seen results with diet and exercise
- Want to lose 20 or more pounds
- Have a BMI (body mass index) of 30+
- Have a BMI of 27+ with a coexisting condition (heart disease, diabetes, etc.)
- Are ready to make lifestyle changes
- Want real, noticeable results
How Does A Medical Weight Loss Program Work?
A medical weight loss program begins with a 1-on-1 consultation with Dr. Farley or Dr. Terry. They will talk to you about your current condition, your weight loss goals, medical history, and challenges you've faced. Then they will do a health assessment and discuss medical weight loss options to create a personalized plan to help you reach your goals. Each program is unique and can include:
- Health assessment with BMI testing, blood testing, etc.
- Lab testing for metabolic and hormonal issues contributing to weight gain
- Medical weight loss support (hCG treatments, weight loss medication, supplements, etc.)
- Nutritional counseling
- Exercise plan coaching
Each part of the program works in concert to boost energy and metabolism, burn fat, curb hunger, regulate hormones, build muscle, and more. Many patients lose on average 1 – 3 lbs/week during a typical 3 – 6 week program. Your progress will be monitored at key points (usually every week) by Dr. Farley or Dr. Terry to help keep you on track, make adjustments if necessary, and provide the support you need to reach your goal weight.
Medical Weight Loss FAQ
Do medical weight loss programs really work?
Medical weight loss programs have been carefully studied and reviewed with clinically-verified findings that they are highly effective to help patients lose weight when diet and exercise have failed. Each weight loss program created at Mid Cities Direct Primary Care uses multiple treatment options, personalizing your plan to target your unique weight loss challenges. A medical weight loss program is designed, administered, and monitored by our physicians to ensure you achieve optimal weight loss results safely and effectively.
How much weight can I lose with a medical weight loss program?
Every person's results are unique, and Dr. Terry or Dr. Farley will ensure you are losing weight in a healthy way, but on average, patients can expect to lose about 1 – 3 pounds per week.
What is hCG therapy for weight loss?
HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by the body during pregnancy. This hormone supplement therapy helps to support a low-calorie diet by boosting metabolism and energy levels while reducing hunger. This provides a full-body visceral fat-burning effect for great weight loss results.
