What does medically supervised weight loss involve?

 Dr. Gilban uses effective techniques to help adults lose weight and keep it off. As a part of your weight loss plan, she may recommend: 


Nutritional guidance
To lose weight and keep it off, you need to eat a balanced diet that features fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. It’s okay to splurge once in a while, but if you eat salty or fatty foods at most meals, you may struggle to achieve lasting progress. 


Exercise recommendations
Eating a nutritious diet can keep you from gaining weight, but if you want to eliminate fat, you need to exercise. After a review of your medical records and a discussion of your lifestyle, Dr. Gilban will make recommendations that align with your abilities and level of physical fitness. This might include lifting weights, swimming, cycling, or enrolling in physical therapy.


Prescription medication
Many people 50 and older struggle to lose weight because of hormonal changes. If several weeks of diet and exercise don’t result in significant weight loss, Dr. Gilban might prescribe medication. Certain drugs help speed up your metabolism, while others suppress your appetite.

How long does weight loss take?

The time it takes to benefit from medically supervised weight loss depends on several factors, including your age and commitment to the treatment plan. Most people lose at least a few pounds within the first two weeks, but it may take several months to achieve lasting progress*.
