Weight Loss Q & A

I keep gaining weight. Do weight loss diets work?

There are many reasons why you may struggle to lose weight while following various diet plans. However, the most common reason is that most weight loss diets fail to factor in the most important part of the weight loss equation: you.

Eating less and staying active serve as the foundation of any good weight loss programs. Though they’re important for losing weight, they aren’t the only influential factors. 

Eating less and moving more may only work for so long. Your genetics, age, and medical history may make it harder for you to reach and maintain your weight goals. 

AssociatesMD understands the struggles you face when it comes to losing weight. They have physicians and registered dietitians who specialize in weight loss and design plans that factor in all of the elements that influence your weight.

What can I expect from professional help with weight loss?

You can expect attentive, compassionate, and personalized care at AssociatesMD for weight loss. You first meet with one of the primary care providers for a physical exam. 

Your provider reviews your medical history, performs a physical, and runs lab work to identify health issues that may affect your weight. Then, you meet with the registered dietitian, who takes a detailed diet history.

The dietitian also asks about your weight history and goals and other diets you’ve tried in the past. Your provider and registered dietitian work together to develop your personalized weight loss plan, which may include:

  • Weight loss meal planning
  • Grocery shopping tips
  • Cooking tips
  • A personalized exercise program
  • Weight loss medication (semaglutide)

You meet regularly with your dietitian, who helps you make lifestyle changes that lead to long-term weight management. They also celebrate your wins and help you navigate through obstacles. 

What happens after weight loss?

After you reach your weight goal, AssociatesMD continues to provide ongoing medical care and nutrition therapy for as long as you need. 

Weight loss is a journey that requires your active involvement. However, setbacks happen. The skilled experts at AssociatesMD make themselves available to help you get back on track.
