Many weight loss programs offer quick weight loss but are ketosis (starvation) diets where you limit calorie intake to an extreme. When eliminating calories to such an extreme you will lower your metabolic rate and your body will start to use lean body mass as a source of calories. Prolonged ketosis diets also eliminate fat from desired areas such as the face and may leave you with a body image that you may not have expected. Diet shakes, powders, and other fad diets are all designed to make you lose weight by delivering empty calories and also allow for rapid weight gain after dieting. Bariatric surgeries and non-surgical procedures are expensive and without considerable risk.
Therefore, you must be careful when adopting any type of weight loss program and understand that there is a science involved with short-term and long-term weight loss. Do not be influenced by false claims that these various diets contain. Many of these diets are not safe for your health based on your medical history and don’t help you to keep the weight off after the diet or teach you how to manage your weight while living a healthy lifestyle.
Medical weight loss is different. This type of weight loss program involves doctors monitoring your health as they design a diet and fitness regimen that will help you lose pounds. At My Family Practice Associates we monitor your weight and metabolism and prescribe safe low-calorie meals and diet pills that will help your body shed excess fat. In addition, we also examine your medical history, taking into account any prescription medication that may be contributing to your weight gain. By working with your primary health physician, we can also ensure that the program will allow you to lose weight without endangering your health as you also learn about all the proper eating habits you can do to live a healthy lifestyle.
