Weight Loss

Does being overweight affect my health?

If you're overweight or obese, you're also at a higher risk of developing serious health problems including: 

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver
  • Kidney disease 

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss is a custom program that's tailored to your individual needs and goals for treatment. Instead of implementing a trendy diet, medically supervised weight loss takes a scientific approach that combines several different treatment methods. 

At Tailored MD, medically supervised weight loss focuses on three specific areas:

Eating a balanced diet

If you eat a diet that's high in saturated fats, sugars, and starches, you're more likely to gain weight instead of losing it. Dr. Clements recommends eating a balanced diet that contains fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and plenty of water. He also encourages healthy portions and offers guidance regarding optimal mealtimes. Minor adjustments to your eating habits can boost your metabolism and help you achieve your desired results. 

Exercising regularly

Many Americans live a sedentary lifestyle. However, if you want to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, Dr. Clements can develop a custom exercise plan that aligns with your individual needs and current fitness levels.

Prescription medications

If a balanced diet and regular exercise don't make a significant difference in your weight-loss journey, Dr. Clements might recommend prescription medications to boost your metabolism or curb your appetite. Medication isn't a cure-all, but it can help you stay on track and help you achieve your goals more quickly. 

Can medically supervised weight loss help me stay focused?

Yes. Losing weight isn't easy; it requires focus, commitment, and dedication. In addition to providing you with the tools you need to succeed, medically supervised weight loss at Tailored MD involves weekly checkups and dietary counseling. If you're too busy to visit the office for an in-person appointment, don't worry, Dr. Clements offers consultations via video chat as well.
