Weight Loss Q & A

What is weight loss?

Many people feel that they have too much fat on their bodies, and having too much fat can result in long-term harm to your health. Weight loss is a way to eliminate excess fat and experience health benefits from reducing it. 

At Prevention Clinics, Dr. Boutros measures your weight and height to calculate your body mass index (BMI), which helps determine whether or not you should consider weight loss for your health. 

While there are plenty of strategies out there for losing weight on your own, none compare to medical weight loss when it comes to long-term results. Some strategies promise quick weight loss, but it’s easy to regain the weight afterward because the strategy wasn’t sustainable or applicable to your everyday life. 

What should I expect during a weight loss program?

Every weight loss program at Prevention Clinics is unique and developed with your personal goals in mind. During your consultation, Dr. Boutros takes your measurements and vital signs and helps you develop realistic goals. 

Your personalized medical weight loss strategy might involve:

  • Changes to your diet (e.g., low carb or paleo)
  • Increased exercise
  • Meal replacements
  • Fat-burning injections
  • Hormone balancing
  • Prescription appetite suppressant medications

Your weight loss plan also involves regular check-ins at Prevention Clinics to keep track of your progress and set smaller goals as you work toward the major one. You can also opt for body contouring toward the end of your plan to eliminate smaller pockets of fat that remain despite your weight loss efforts. 

How does my health benefit from weight loss?

Losing weight when you’re overweight or obese, even a small amount, helps to lower your risk for many chronic health conditions and complications. If you already have any health conditions related to your weight, they may improve due to your weight loss, too. 

A healthy approach to weight loss can reduce your risk for:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Sleep apnea

You might notice some other benefits from weight loss, too, such as more energy to enjoy the activities you love or improved sleep. Dr. Boutros can tell you more about the specific benefits you might experience in your life.
