Excess body fat can be deadly, increasing the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Removing excess body fat goes far beyond a slim physique to the promise of a lengthy and disease-free life. Our weight management program provides personal one-on-one weekly visits, including weight loss medications (important support in reducing appetite, promoting satiety, and enhancing fat burning) and a food diary to keep you on track and help you succeed.
Our weight management program focuses on various components involved in weight gain and is designed to help our patients reach their weight loss goals.
Reducing caloric intake and staying away from foods that raise blood sugar, resulting in elevated insulin levels and the storage of body fat.
Many hormones can contribute to weight gain. Optimal balance is important. High levels of estrogen, less-than-optimal thyroid levels, and low levels of testosterone and DHEA can contribute to weight gain.
Serotonin deficiency has been associated with carbohydrate binging and overeating patterns.
