Weight Loss Plans
One weight loss plan does not fit every person. Our team evaluates your health conditions and medications, then factors in your age and reasons for weight loss to create a plan that is unique to you. Each plan is built around three basics: good nutrition, healthy activity and behavioral change. We help you identify the tools and give you the support you need for success.
Weight Loss Team
You work closely with a physician, registered dietitian, fitness specialist and psychologist to safely lose weight and develop the skills to maintain a healthy weight. Our team also includes nurse practitioners as well as nursing and support staff who are here to answer questions and lend support and care.
Weight Loss Tools
- Diet Management
With a weight loss physician and registered dietician, modify your current diet to encourage weight loss. Or try low-calorie and very low calorie diets or a liquid diet to encourage significant weight loss followed by a maintenance plan for good health.
- Medication Management
Many medications can cause the body to retain excess weight. Our weight loss physician takes a closer look at the medications you are currently taking and their effect on your weight and overall health.
- Appetite Suppressant Medications
Appetite suppressant medications encourage weight loss by making the body believe it is not hungry. Put simply, your appetite is decreased and you eat less. Appetite suppressant medications are typically intended for short-term use, a few weeks to a few months.
There is no miracle pill for obesity, and we do not recommend taking appetite suppressant medications unless under the supervision of a physician. Appetite suppressants are used at the Guthrie Weight Loss Center as a component of a comprehensive plan including physical fitness supervised by a physician, nutritional education, and emotional support.
- Healthy Behavior Modification
Patients work with our medical weight loss physician and fitness expert to change behaviors such as exercise routines and lifestyle habits. Choosing a healthy lifestyle often means committing to a more active life in which exercise is incorporated into your daily routine.
