Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss important?

Weight loss is important because it can significantly improve your health and quality of life. If you’re overweight, you’re more likely to experience potentially serious health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer.

Excess weight can also take a toll on your mental health. If you’ve tried time and again to achieve your ideal weight but fail to make progress, you might feel depressed or anxious. Over time, these feelings might cause you to isolate and avoid social interactions altogether.

Fortunately, weight loss is possible. By participating in a medical weight loss management program, you can set attainable goals and achieve them with the help of the team at Supreme All Care Health and Wellness.

What does weight loss involve?

At Supreme All Care Health and Wellness, the weight loss management program includes several components, including:

Regular checkups

Losing weight takes time and commitment, so it’s important to routinely monitor your progress. At each weight management appointment, your provider conducts a physical exam, orders lab work as necessary, and adjusts the treatment regimen to align with your needs.

Nutritional guidance

The foods and beverages you eat and drink affect your metabolism, energy levels, and ability to lose weight. The team at Supreme All Care Health and Wellness can make recommendations for healthy meals and snacks. Usually, that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and drinking plenty of water.

Exercise recommendations

To burn calories, you need to stay physically active. Regardless of your current weight or fitness level, your provider can recommend exercises that boost your heart rate, build your muscles, and eradicate pesky pockets of fat.

Prescription medication

If you’re struggling to make progress on your weight loss journey, your provider might recommend prescription appetite suppressants. These medications limit food cravings throughout the day.

Supplemental injections

Weight loss is hard work. To minimize exhaustion and other side effects, Supreme All Care Health and Wellness offers supplemental injections that help boost your energy levels and metabolism.

Who can benefit from weight loss?

Anyone who is overweight can benefit from the weight loss management program at Supreme All Care Health and Wellness. Studies show that even losing just 5-10 pounds can reduce weight-bearing pressure on your joints and ease inflammation throughout your entire body.
