Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important?

Carrying around excess weight can affect your entire body. You can start developing chronic pain from your feet all the way up to your lower back, just for having a moderate amount of excess weight (like 10-20 pounds). Losing weight can resolve these chronic pain issues, plus it can even:

  • Help you sleep better
  • Stabilize your hormone levels
  • Lower your blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Boost your energy levels and resolve fatigue
  • Reduce your risk of chronic disease, including heart disease
  • Stabilize your blood sugar and improve insulin functions for Type 2 diabetics

Weight loss can even improve your self-image and self-confidence, which are essential elements of your overall well-being. 

What is medical weight loss?

Because being overweight or obese can lead to a variety of complex health conditions, it’s important to get your physician involved early on in your weight loss journey. The dedicated practitioners at Katy Internists tailor your medical weight loss plan to your health, your lifestyle, and of course, how much weight you want to lose.

Medical weight loss can include a combination of the following solutions:

  • Exercise coaching
  • Regular weigh-ins
  • Dietary supplements
  • South Beach Diet® planning
  • Dietary and nutrition counseling
  • FDA-approved weight loss medications
  • Customized menu planning and grocery lists

Your medical weight loss plan from Katy Internists also involves counseling to help you make healthful lifestyle changes. After all, your goal isn’t just to lose weight, it’s to keep it off for good. 

How much weight can I lose?

Whether you have 10 or 20 pounds to lose, or 100 pounds to drop (or more), the dedicated team at Katy Internists can help. Because the end result can be overwhelming, focus on small and steady successes, like one to two pounds per week. 

Of course, you may drop even more pounds each week, especially the more you exercise. Gradual weight loss results in a higher likelihood of being able to keep the weight off for a lifetime. 

Get started on your personalized weight loss plan by booking a consultation at Katy Internists today. You can conveniently schedule your weight loss appointment online or over the phone. 

Individual results may vary.
