Weight Loss Consultation
Q & A
How do I know which weight loss programs will work?
A huge number of weight loss programs are available today. The vast majority of them make lofty claims with a few case-study examples of people who have lost dramatic amounts of weight. But if you’ve ever tried one of these weight loss programs, you know that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another.
NY Family Docs healthcare providers can help you determine what is the right type of weight loss program for you and whether you’ll have any physical limitations due to your current health conditions. We take the time to understand your family health history, your personal health history and your lifestyle. That helps us to identify the weight loss program that is most appropriate for you and your unique needs.
What should I expect from this weight loss consultation?
During a weight loss consultation, our board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners will determine your overall health with a routine physical and check-up. We’ll ask what your goals are for weight loss and determine which program may be the best for you.
This is the key to ensure that you have the right expectations when starting your weight loss program for long term health benefits. We’ll also be able to monitor your health and ensure that the program is not causing any unforeseen injuries and/ or stresses on your body. Your NY Family Docs healthcare provider will be able to determine when to schedule follow-up appointments to help you reach your weight loss goals.
Will the provider be able to tell me about diet and exercise?
Absolutely. But you won’t be crash dieting or doing a physical activity you hate. We advise you on a program that is safe for you based on your current health and goals.
And as your body gets fitter, stronger, and healthier, you’ll find that you don’t just look better, you feel better. Many patients find it easier to follow a weight loss program when they have frequent follow-up appointments with their healthcare providers since you’re needs and goals will change as you progress.
