Medical Weight Loss Q & A

by Kofo Ekadi, MD

What is a Medical Weight Loss Program?

A medical weight loss program is a doctor-supervised program that is designed to help patients lose weight rapidly. Medical weight loss programs are often ideal for people who have a significant amount of weight to lose. Most people who enter into a medical weight loss program have tried other types of weight loss solutions in the past but have met with failure. Medical weight loss programs are closely supervised by the staff at Delta Medical Clinic. This helps patients to be accountable, and it is excellent for helping them stay on track. Many people need extra support when they're trying to lose weight and the program is designed to do exactly that.

What Type of Diet is Followed?

The diet in a medical weight loss program is customized for the individual. Most people find success with a controlled carbohydrate reduced calorie diet. The medical staff will provide the information and tools that patients need to identify and locate healthy foods for their diet.

What Type of Medications Are Used in a Medical Weight Loss Program?

A medical weight loss program may include a prescription appetite suppressant for patients who qualify. This appetite suppressant is typically taken in the morning and will help curb appetite throughout the day. It can allow a person who has previously failed with diets due to hunger to finally succeed. There are also several supplements that patients may find helpful in their weight loss journey. These include Nutrilite Carb Blocker 2, which blocks carbs from being absorbed into the body, and Nutrilite Slimmetry, which blends 4 natural herbs to create an extremely well rounded dietary supplement. Some patients may also opt for weekly B-12 injections. These injections help with fat burning, and they can help with weight loss by improving energy levels.
