Medical Weight Loss Program
We will embark on a journey of losing weight together. I have, like most of you, used fad diets and the latest fitness programs, but still could not get the weight off. Quite often Primary Care Providers don’t start medications and primarily stress lifestyle changes. While diet and exercise are essential to any weight loss program, here at QuickStart we believe that when indicated the use of FDA approved weight loss medications can produce results that keep one motivated to reach personal goals. Weight loss medications can be a tool utilized to get recognizable results safely and quickly when under the supervision of a licensed medical provider. Some of the medications utilized may include an appetite suppressant, fat blocker, insulin resistant medications, lipotropic injections and just to name a few on the market right now: Phentermine, Bontril, Adipex, Qsymia, Contrave, Saxenda, and others. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to one’s personal journey so the first step of the process is a health assessment with the medical provider and then together you will set realistic goals and agree on a treatment plan.
Nearly every medically overweight or obese person will gain benefit from general weight reduction. The benefits may include better control of chronic medical conditions such as: diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obstructive sleep apnea, and inflammation. Other possible benefits include: less skeletal muscle and joint strain, less chronic pain related to being overweight and improved self-esteem.
The QuickStart team would like to guide and support you as we begin this journey to a lighter and healthier you. Lets get started!
