Weight Loss Q & A

How does weight loss benefit my health?

While there are many ways to go about losing weight, some don’t use the right strategies and aren’t beneficial to your health in the long run. 

If you lose weight slowly and meticulously with healthy and sustainable lifestyle changes, you’ll reduce your chances of illness, injury, and malnutrition.

Your physician might recommend or support your weight loss if you’re overweight, obese, or rapidly gaining weight because of unhealthy lifestyle habits. Reducing your weight lowers your chances of getting:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Some types of cancer
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Joint pain
  • Back pain 
  • Sleep apnea

Weight loss will likely help improve your self-esteem and body image, too. In turn, you’ll experience a better overall mood and be more likely to participate freely in activities that once felt too tiring or embarrassing.

What’s included in my weight loss plan?

At South Florida Preventive Care Group, your provider becomes quite familiar with your personality and lifestyle. 

The team gives you instructions for better eating and regular exercise. You’ll attend weekly appointments for monitoring, and you’ll get weekly injections of methionine, inositol, and choline (MIC) with vitamin B12.

These injections help facilitate and accelerate weight loss by boosting your metabolism and increasing your energy. They’ll help motivate you to follow a fitness plan that your doctor provides. 

Additionally, you might see an improvement in your hair, skin, and nail health as well as a boost in your mood. 

How do I get started on my weight loss plan?

In order to get started on your weight loss or management plan at South Florida Preventive Care Group, you’ll start with an in-depth consultation with your provider. 

During this time, the team evaluates your current weight, health, and the state of your lifestyle to identify the areas that need improvement and the ways that your current habits are successful. 

Your provider must also evaluate your blood work before you begin. If you’ve had a blood evaluation within the six months before your consultation, you can use those results. If not, you may get your blood drawn at the clinic for testing.

Healthy and sustainable weight loss takes some time, but your provider at South Florida Preventive Care Group can set you up for success and satisfaction. To start your weight management plan, call the clinic or book your consultation online today.
