Medical Weight Loss
Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult for you to lose weight, while some people can eat almost anything they want and never gain a pound? Have you tried diet after diet with little success? Do you feel defeated by how you look?
If you’re tired of struggling with obesity and your weight loss efforts keep falling short of success, it’s time to get help from a medical professional. At Dr. Li Wellness in Florham Park, New Jersey, Dr. Sherry Li is an internist who specializes in obesity medicine and medical weight loss. She will design a weight loss program that is tailored for your individual needs – one that you can stick to and achieve long-term success.
Weight loss is a vicious cycle, and the majority of people who lose weight tend to gain it all back. That’s because many people try unproven fad diets that are not only ineffective but can also be downright dangerous. Others may try a responsible diet plan and exercise only to gain the weight back because they haven’t addressed the root causes of their eating problem.
To avoid these unsafe methods of weight loss and confront the underlying issues that lead to obesity and overweight, it is best to consult with a medical professional – especially one who is trained in obesity medicine. Medical weight loss programs are always the healthier and smarter way to lose weight and achieve the body that you have always wanted.
The key to losing weight once and for all is to make healthy eating and fitness choices that last a lifetime, but doing this on your own can be daunting. Dr. Li will create a weight loss program that is personalized to fit your needs and goals. She will focus on teaching you about nutritious foods and how to become more active. The goal is to not only lose weight but to become a healthier and happier person.
Not only does medical weight loss teach you how to eat right and exercise correctly, but how to incorporate lifestyle changes into your routines and modify the behaviors that caused you to gain weight in the first place.
Dr. Li can create a fully customized weight loss plan for you or offer options such as meal replacement or the HCG weight loss program. She may also prescribe FDA-approved weight loss medications to help control your appetite, and Lipo-B injections to facilitate the metabolism of fat.
Is Medical Weight Loss Right for You?
There’s no need to go it alone. Dr. Sherry Li will supervise your weight loss journey, carefully planning your program and monitoring your progress.
Every medical weight loss program begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including a physical exam, body composition analysis using body mass index (BMI), and review of your personal and family medical history. It is critically important to determine if you have any pre-existing conditions or risk factors for health concerns such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, or depression.
If you have any of these conditions and you are overweight or obese, you are the ideal candidate for medical weight loss. As an internal medicine physician, Dr. Li can help treat and manage these conditions while guiding your weight loss program. She will explain BMI and how much weight you need to lose to reach a healthy weight for your height and age.
Your initial evaluation will also include a discussion of your current lifestyle, food choices, and activity levels to decide how to best create a program for you. This means that your goals are specific to your needs, and the changes you are asked to make will directly influence your results.
Dr. Li will ensure that your exercise regimen is appropriate for your health status and that you are getting the nutrients you need for your body to function optimally. She will address the choices and behaviors that led to your weight gain so you can overcome them and make the changes necessary to reach and maintain your weight loss goals.
