Medical Weight Loss

What is medical weight loss?

The medical weight-loss program at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine is a physician-supervised weight-loss program. What that means is that you get professional help on your weight-loss journey from someone who understands your very unique medical and health needs.

Additionally, Dr. Golden is a bariatric physician (a doctor who specializes in the causes, treatment, and prevention of obesity). He understands better than anyone the relationship between food, diet, and health, and offers a wealth of strategies to help you reach your weight goals.

What can I expect from a medical weight-loss program?

The team at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine takes an individualized approach to help you reach a healthier weight. Your specialist works one-on-one with you to create an effective plan, which may include:

  • Diet modification
  • Exercise program
  • Prescription medication

Because no one plan works for all people, the specialists at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine also recognize the benefits of weight-loss surgery in helping you get to a better weight, and may offer that as an option too.

What type of diet do I need to follow for weight loss?

Your specialist at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine creates a weight-loss diet specific for you. To lose weight, your calories in must be less than your calories out. Your diet plan includes a variety of healthy, nutritious, and filling foods that help you maintain a negative calorie balance, while at the same time satisfying both your hunger and taste buds.

What are the benefits of a medical weight-loss program?

The physician-supervised weight-loss program at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine offers many benefits. You not only get the professional support you need to succeed, but you also get a plan that helps you keep the weight off.

You may also enjoy many health benefits when you lose weight and keep it off, including:

  • Improved blood pressure and blood sugar
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes
  • Decreased stress on your joints

Losing weight may also help you feel better about yourself and boost both your self-confidence and self-esteem.
