Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important for my health?

Besides dropping a few pants sizes and boosting your confidence, weight loss is essential to ward off serious cardiovascular diseases like heart attack and stroke, and chronic illnesses like diabetes. In fact, studies have shown that losing just 5-10% of your body weight can improve your blood pressure and stabilize your blood sugar levels. As you continue to slim down, you lower your chances of developing:

  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Type II diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Joint issues
  • Certain cancers
  • Metabolic syndrome

What can I expect with a physician-supervised weight loss?

Expect to have an expert by your side supporting you and cheering you on throughout your treatment. When you start a physician-supervised weight loss plan, Dr. Pastorek will check you from head to toe to get you ready for weight loss success. During your weight loss program, you will have:

  • Laboratory testing
  • Medical history evaluation
  • Regular physical exams
  • Individualized diet and exercise programs
  • Prescription weight-loss medications
  • Monthly monitoring
  • Routine weigh-ins

Will I feel hungry on a medical weight loss plan?

It’s normal to have some hunger pangs while your body adjusts to a new diet and exercise regimen, but you won’t starve. The physician-supervised weight loss program is designed to help you succeed at a pace that is comfortable for you.

If you are struggling with feeling hungry, talk with Dr. Pastorek about your concerns. You might need to have your medication adjusted or make some changes in your diet.

How much weight will I lose?

Dr. Pastorek will help you determine your ideal goal weight. Remember that you didn’t put the weight on overnight, so don’t expect to lose it overnight. Rapid weight loss stresses your vital organs, and you are more likely to put the weight right back on.
