What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss programs help you lose weight safely and keep it off long-term. Your provider at JAM Wellness Clinics designs your weight loss program to suit you. They combine proven treatments with information from your medical history, lifestyle, and physical exam.

Many people have problems losing weight. They often turn to widely advertised fad diets and miracle cures that don’t have much basis in science. You might have lost some weight if you’ve tried a fad diet, but soon notice the weight coming back.

Medical weight loss is different. Your provider completes a thorough checkup and runs tests to look for underlying health problems that might make it hard for you to lose weight.

What does medical weight loss involve?

At JAM Wellness Clinics, the team offers custom weight loss programs, which may involve:

Nutritional counseling

The food that you consume affects your overall health and energy levels. If you want to lose excess pounds and keep it off, it’s vital to eat a nutritious diet. Your JAM Wellness Clinics provider can provide nutritional recommendations that suit your lifestyle and health history.

Exercise programs

It’s also essential to have an active lifestyle if you want to lose weight. You can even benefit from simple activities, like taking a walk or swimming. Your JAM Wellness Clinics provider can recommend activities that suit your personal fitness levels. 

Prescription medicine

If you’re struggling to reach your weight loss goals, your provider may recommend prescription medicine. There are certain medications that can help suppress your appetite or speed up your metabolism to help with the weight loss process.

What conditions can medical weight loss help with?

Medical weight loss can help you maintain a healthy weight, but it can also prevent risk of or improve conditions, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol
  • Fatty liver disease

By following a medical weight loss plan and adopting healthier lifestyle habits with help from the JAM Wellness Clinics specialists, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing these conditions.

How long will it take to see weight loss results?

Anyone who has dealt with fluctuating weight and unsustainable results will know that it takes more than sheer willpower to lose weight and keep it off. 

The key to successful weight loss is patience. It may take several months* to see a significant difference in your size, but many patients lose one or two pounds each week*. Losing weight too quickly isn’t good for you and often comes back almost immediately. 

The providers at JAM Wellness Clinics stay involved to help you make healthy decisions at every turn. Not only do they ensure that you don't sacrifice your well-being to reach a certain number on the scale, but they also help you make long-term changes.
