What Is Non-Surgical, Medical Weight Loss?
Non-surgical medical weight loss is a range of treatments and interventions that can help people lose weight without the need for surgery. These treatments are typically overseen by a doctor or other healthcare professional and may include:
Diet and exercise counseling:
A healthcare professional can help you develop a personalized plan for healthy eating and exercise. This may involve setting realistic goals, making gradual changes to your lifestyle, and tracking your progress.
Meal replacements are low-calorie, nutrient-balanced shakes, bars, or soups that can be used to partially or fully replace meals. They can be helpful for people who have difficulty controlling their portion sizes or who need to lose weight quickly.
Prescription weight loss medications:
Prescription medications can be used to help people lose weight by reducing appetite, blocking fat absorption, or increasing metabolism. These medications are typically used in conjunction with diet and exercise changes.
Non-surgical medical weight loss can be a safe and effective way to lose weight, especially for people who have struggled with diet and exercise alone. However, it is important to note that these treatments are not a quick fix. Long-term weight loss success requires making lasting changes to your diet and lifestyle.
