What is weight loss?

Weight loss is the process of reducing the amount of fat on your body. While everyone needs some fat for insulation and energy storage, too much body fat can harm your health. In fact, losing weight in a controlled, healthy, and sustainable manner can lead to plenty of health benefits, including:

  • Increased energy
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced risk of diabetes
  • Better cardiovascular health
  • Better mobility
  • Less musculoskeletal pain

If you have any health conditions related to your weight, a medical weight-loss program at Priority Medical Group helps you manage those health conditions and may even reduce your need for other treatments like medications and surgery. 

How does a medical weight-loss program work?

A personalized medical weight-loss program examines your needs while allowing you to set realistic goals that you’ll work toward throughout your time in treatment. At Priority Medical Group, health care professionals like physicians, nurse practitioners, registered dieticians, and psychiatrists collaborate to help you increase your activity level and lose weight without surgery.

Your plan might involve:

Diet changes

Changing your diet is a necessary part of medical weight loss. Your provider teaches you the principles of nutrition and helps you develop a healthy diet you can sustain. 

Behavioral therapy

Behavioral therapy helps you examine your habits with help from a licensed professional and change the harmful behaviors contributing to your weight. 

Physical activity

Exercise counseling is also an important part of medical weight loss, and regular exercise helps increase your metabolism and burn calories. 

Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?

During a consultation, your provider at Priority Medical Group helps you decide if medical weight loss is both safe and necessary for you. They examine your medical history and talk to you about your current diet and habits. 

You might be a candidate for medical weight loss at Priority Medical Group if you:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of over 30
  • Have a BMI of 27 or higher alongside two or more weight-related health conditions
  • Are at least nine months post bariatric surgery
  • Are a bariatric gastric balloon patient

If you have had bariatric surgery, your health providers at Priority Medical Group communicate and collaborate with your bariatric surgery team.
