Weight Loss Q & A

What is weight loss management?

If you struggle to maintain a healthy weight, weight loss management from a medical professional can help you shed unwanted pounds and develop lifestyle habits to maintain your results for a lifetime. 

The team at Spring Valley Internal Medicine offers guidance throughout your weight loss journey, helping you to achieve your weight loss goals. 

Why is it so difficult to lose weight?

Have you tried popular diets and exercise programs without success? Weight loss isn’t just about restricting foods and will power. Many factors can make it challenging to lose pounds and maintain your weight, such as:

  • Work, family, and environmental stress
  • Certain medical conditions 
  • Culture and community
  • Genetic factors

Weight loss counseling at Spring Valley Internal Medicine can help identify variables that are preventing you from successfully losing weight. It can also help you feel motivated and inspired to stick with your plan and meet your weight loss goals.

How does weight loss management work?

The team at Spring Valley Internal Medicine designs customized weight loss programs tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. They begin with a consultation, during which they discuss your weight loss goals and your weight history with you in detail. 

They also perform a physical exam, review your medical history, and may order some blood work or other tests to identify any underlying conditions that could contribute to your inability to lose weight.

After your consultation, the team creates your personalized weight loss plan, which may include:

  • Routine weight check-ins
  • Dietary plans
  • Exercise programs
  • Prescription weight loss medications
  • Treatment of underlying health conditions

Lifestyle changes play an essential role in maintaining your weight loss results. The Spring Valley Internal Medicine team provides lifestyle counseling and resources to help you develop healthy habits that will keep the unwanted pounds away. They provide support throughout your weight loss journey and beyond.
