Yes. If you’re overweight or obese, you’re also more likely to experience chronic health problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Being overweight can also negatively affect your mental health. Studies show that overweight people are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
Participating in a medically supervised weight loss management program can help you on your weight loss journey. The more progress you make, the greater the health benefits.
Weight loss management is a custom-tailored program that uses a combination of treatments to help you achieve a lower BMI and a better quality of life.
At Compass Mental Health & Wellness, weight loss management includes:
Weight loss management begins with an in-office consultation. During your first appointment, the team conducts a physical and neurological exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your goals for treatment. They use this information to develop a custom care plan designed to support your metabolism and unique needs.
The foods and beverages you consume directly impact your weight loss journey. Your provider can make nutritious food recommendations that provide energy and support vitality.
By eliminating sugars, starches, and fatty foods from your diet, you can make significant progress. When developing your diet and nutrition plan, your provider takes your health history and any underlying medical conditions into account.
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, it’s important to exercise regularly. That doesn’t mean you have to hit the gym or run a marathon, though. Compass Mental Health & Wellness makes recommendations that align with your current level of physical fitness. This often begins with easy exercises like walking, cycling, or swimming.
If you can’t lose weight via diet and exercise alone, you might benefit from nutritional supplements or prescription medications. Medicines can suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism, helping you achieve long-term results.
If you’re overweight or obese and want to live a healthier lifestyle, you’re a good candidate for weight loss management. Working with a qualified team of medical professionals like those at Compass Mental Health & Wellness can help you achieve your goals and extend your life.
