Weight Loss Q & A

What is a medical weight loss program?

A medical weight loss management program is a holistic approach to losing weight that takes every aspect of your health into account.

Medical weight loss programs often include nutrition plans, exercise plans, physical therapy, behavioral therapy, and more. Instead of focusing on one part of wellness, medical weight loss addresses diet, exercise, and other aspects of health to help you lose weight.

While many diet and exercise plans fail, medical weight loss management is customized to fit your body and lifestyle. It’s a personalized plan to help you lose weight, complete with support from a team of experts.

At MedicalMed Wellness, Dr. Jensen addresses common and uncommon causes of weight gain, from diet and activity level to injury and chronic illness, through his convenient telehealth services.

Is a medical weight loss program right for me?

Dr. Jensen provides a personalized weight loss plan and support for every patient. When developing your plan, he evaluates your medical history and goals to set you up for success.

Considering things like diet, lifestyle, chronic health conditions, and allergies, he gives you the knowledge you need to lose weight and keep it off.

Medical weight loss is different because it’s unique to you. Dr. Jensen helps you understand why you’ve struggled to lose weight in the past and gives you the resources to succeed in the long term.

Your medical weight loss plan is a strategy that’s developed to meet your needs and goals — it isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Dr. Jensen provides education and support along the way with easily accessible telehealth visits to ensure lasting results.

Once you arrive at your target weight, you can continue with Dr. Jensen’s support. He offers weight loss maintenance programs to help you keep your healthy weight and stick to the lifestyle changes you’ve made.

Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?

Obesity is a very serious health condition. More than two out of three Americans are overweight or obese. Carrying those extra pounds can significantly affect your health.

Your body mass index (BMI) is a medical measurement of your weight. It’s also a good indication of your overall health. A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 indicates that you’re at a healthy weight for your height. A BMI between 25 and 29.9 indicates that you’re overweight, and a BMI above 30 indicates obesity.

Obesity can make it harder for you to enjoy your life and can significantly shorten your lifespan. Obese people are more likely to suffer from other chronic health conditions, like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Joint problems

If you’ve tried to diet and exercise but have been unsuccessful in losing weight, it’s time to try medically supervised weight loss.
