Get Ready for Summer With Medical Weight Loss

There’s a reason people’s weight loss goals spike in early January and again in late spring. If you didn’t stick to your New Year’s resolution to get in shape, don’t worry. The push to get ready for summer helps plenty of people see weight loss success as the weather warms up.

In fact, knowing swimsuit season is just around the corner can be the motivator you need to make progress toward your dream body. And you don’t have to do it alone.

At NY Family Docs, we offer personalized medical weight loss programs. Choosing this program means you get the full support of our medical expertise and our extensive experience helping individuals shed pounds — and keep them off. 

How medical weight loss works

Your journey starts with an appointment with one of our weight loss specialists. We talk about your personal and family health history, your lifestyle and food choices, and other factors that affect your weight. We discuss any weight loss techniques you’ve tried in the past so we understand what has and hasn’t worked for you. Then, we screen you for any medical obstacles to weight loss, such as thyroid disorders.

Once we have a comprehensive idea of your current health, your body’s biggest hurdles to weight loss, and your weight goals, we tailor a weight loss program to you. Medically supervised weight loss includes the elements you’d expect — diet and exercise — paired with support from our weight loss experts and access to medications and surgical referrals if needed.

We help you make sustainable choices so you can lose weight and keep it off. Instead of putting you on a crash diet, for example, we help you adjust the way you eat. Our goal is to encourage you to make food choices that leave you feeling satisfied while maintaining a large enough calorie deficit to see weight loss results quickly and safely. 

Ultimately, our team partners with you to help you overcome any roadblocks that have kept you from losing weight in the past. At the same time, we use our medical expertise to guide you as you establish a new, healthy lifestyle so you can enjoy your weight loss results long-term.  

How you can benefit from medical weight loss

If you’ve tried to lose weight in the past but haven’t seen the results you want, medical weight loss could be just what you need. Don’t spend another summer wishing you could make changes to your health or body.

Some people struggle to bring up the conversation about their weight loss goals with their doctor. We understand that weight can be a sensitive subject, so please know that we have years of experience helping people just like you reach their weight loss goals.
