What is included in a weight loss program?

Women and men who struggle to lose weight independently can benefit from a weight loss program. A+ Urgent Care designs personalized weight loss plans tailored to meet the needs of each patient. Customized programs ensure your weight loss journey is safe and suited to your preferences and lifestyle.

Sometimes called medical weight loss, the goal of weight loss is to help patients reach their desired weight but also to help them develop healthy lifestyle habits that allow them to maintain their results. Weight loss can improve your quality of life and reduce your risk of weight-related health complications, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Certain cancers
  • Reproductive issues

Losing weight can reduce your chance of developing type 2 diabetes. It can also help improve diabetes symptoms and prevent diabetes-related health complications.

Am I a candidate for a weight loss program?

Your provider at A+ Urgent Care considers a variety of factors when determining your candidacy. Body mass index (BMI) is a primary factor for medical weight loss.

Your BMI falls into one of the following ranges.

  • Underweight: less than 18.5
  • Normal: 18.5-24
  • Overweight: 25-29
  • Obese: 30 or higher

If you’re overweight or obese, you may be a candidate for a physician-supervised weight loss program. A full consultation at A+ Urgent Care can determine your candidacy. 

What is involved in a weight loss program?

Once your provider at A+ Urgent Care determines that you’re a good candidate for medical weight loss, they create a personalized plan based on your unique needs and individual goals.

Your weight loss plan may include:

  • Weight check-ins
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Meal plans
  • Prescription medications
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Support groups
  • Individual counseling

A+ Urgent Care ensures that you have all the information and support you need for a successful weight loss journey.

A weight loss program can end the frustration of dieting and help you to reach a healthy weight safely, with long-lasting results. To learn more about weight loss or to schedule a consultation at A+ Urgent Care, call the office or request an appointment online today.
