Weight Management

Obesity is a chronic progressive, condition that requires lifelong treatment. ‘Quick fix’ approaches to weight loss are not recommended.  The doctors at Integrated Health Clinic realize that losing weight and keeping it off is really hard.  Our doctors utilize the latest science and insights from experts to help you learn what really works for managing weight.  Re-defining success is an important aspect – going beyond the scale to what really matters, a healthy and vibrant life you deserve.

Our doctors start with a series of blood work to see if there are any hormonal issues – female, thyroid or weight loss hormones – that may be impacting your ability to lose weight

Our doctors will discuss behaviors that are leading to overeating or emotional eating and provide tools to deal with them.  Behavior change is the cornerstone to weight loss and weight management.

Our doctors will determine your caloric needs, and discuss macronutrients such as protein, carbs and fat.  We do not provide diet plans, as those tend to be temporary, and we are looking for long term changes.  Learning how to adjust your current diet is an important factor in long-term weight loss.

Finally, our doctors will use prescription medications to help manage the appetite system.  These medications can make behavior adjustments easier.
