Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

How Do I Know if I’m Overweight?

The best way to know where you stand with your weight is to get on the scale and plug your number into the body mass index, or BMI, calculator. Doctors rely on the calculator to determine if you are over or underweight. Here’s how BMI is categorized:

  • 18.5 or less: Underweight
  • 18.5 - 24.9: Normal weight
  • 25 - 29.9: Overweight
  • 30 or more: Obese

It’s still important to look at muscle mass and bone structure when evaluating your weight, but the BMI is a good tool to use to see where your weight falls.

Why Should I Lose Weight?

If you’re overweight, you’re at risk for a number of significant health problems, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • High blood pressure
  • Specific cancers
  • Liver disorders
  • Kidney disease

In addition to getting your energy back and feeling better, getting your excess weight off greatly reduces the detrimental effects these conditions have on your overall health.

What is Physician-Supervised Weight Loss?

Weight loss programs or diet plans that are under the medical oversight of a doctor are considered physician-supervised weight loss programs. Weight loss under a doctor’s experienced care usually includes a strict diet, exercise program, and vitamin and supplement injections. Your Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness doctor takes into account your overall health, ensures you lose weight safely and sustainably, and holds you accountable to your goals.

How Does Dr. G’s Weight Loss Program Work?

Your custom weight loss plan at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness (Weston) features the following:

  • Thorough health history analysis
  • Full physical exam
  • Personalized program tailored to your needs and lifestyle
  • Concentration on whole foods
  • Supplements, vitamins, and injections as necessary
  • Emphasis on appropriate and effective exercise
  • Behavior modification
  • Maintenance program
  • Accountability and counseling
  • Regular progress reports

No two people are alike and no one loses weight exactly like someone else. Your weight loss specialist spends time getting to know you and your weight loss struggles to understand how to guide, educate, and encourage you through the entire program. The one-on-one coaching and accountability are what make Dr. G’s weight loss programs so successful.
