Customized Diet Planning
If you’ve spent years trying, and failing, to lose unwanted pounds through dieting, we understand the toll that yo-yo dieting can take on your physical and emotional health. We take the time to carefully review your medical history, review your prior weight loss efforts, and understand you and your goals.
Our team of bariatric specialists can design a customized diet plan for you – a plan that takes into account your personal preferences, past experiences with dieting, and any medical concerns that could impact your ability to lose weight on traditional diet plans. We’ll also monitor your progress over time, adjusting your treatment plan to adapt to changes in your weight, medications, and exercise habits.
Medical Treatment For Obesity
Obesity is a complex disease, and in many cases, people who are overweight or obese suffer from a number of medical issues that can make losing weight difficult.
Our medical weight loss program includes extensive screening for conditions that could be sabotaging your weight loss efforts. We will review your medical history and screen you for problems such as pre-diabetes, diabetes, thyroid problems, and hormonal imbalances.
If prescription medication is a treatment option for you, we have the experience and medical knowledge to provide you with the supports you need. We’re committed to creating a personalized, comprehensive medical weight loss plan that works for you.
Behavior Modification Counseling
We understand that overeating can be a response to stress, past trauma, and a lifetime of poor eating habits. Here at The Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, our medical weight loss team includes social workers, counselors, and other behavioral health specialists who can help you identify food triggers, address the root causes for your overeating, and work with you to build a healthy relationship with food.
