Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a number calculated from your weight and height that roughly correlates to the percentage of your total weight that comes from fat. We will calculate your BMI for you during your FREE consultation.
BMI <20 Underweight
BMI 20-25 Healthy Weight
BMI 25-30 Overweight
BMI 30-35 Obese
BMI 35-40 Morbid Obese
BMI >40 Severe Morbid Obese
For best results, we recommend you be on the weight loss program for three months, then take a break. If you commit to it for less than a month, most of your weight loss would be water weight loss and not fat. But beyond three months, most people will no longer lose weight and be "stuck" at the weight-loss plateau despite continuing exercise and diet changes. We will then recommend a natural program and of course continue with your diet and exercise.
YES, our provider may prescribe an appetite suppressant, phentermine/phendimetrazine, approved by the FDA since 1959 for the short-term treatment of exogenous obesity in conjunction with a regimen of weight reduction based on caloric restriction, exercise and behavioral modification. The medication is one of the many tools we use to help you lose weight. We focus on changing your behavior and modifying your lifestyle to help you lose weight.
After three months, you will want to get on a natural program. You may resume eating carbohydrates again but you should maintain between a 1600-calorie to 1800-calorie per day diet or whatever was discussed with the Physician that would be best for you. Keeping the weight off will require an ongoing effort.
If your weight is affecting your overall health and your physical activities and you feel that you require the help of a medical professional for weight loss, make a visit to our clinic for your FREE consultation and get started.
