It’s December, and for millions of people, that means New Year’s resolutions are just around the corner. For most people, the resolutions are pretty similar: losing weight and living a healthier life almost always top the list. There’s really only one reason why people tend to make the same resolutions year after year — they failed to achieve their goals the year before.
Losing weight (and keeping it off) isn’t easy, especially when you don’t have a really clear path to follow. Sure, plenty of fad diets and apps claim to help you take off weight, but the problem is, none of them are truly customized for your needs, your medical history, your body chemistry, and your lifestyle. Even “personalized” apps fall short when it comes to giving you the one-to-one attention and ongoing support you need to stay on your weight-loss journey and achieve your goals.
At Cornerstone MD in Dallas, we offer completely customized medical weight-loss plans, along with the professional support you need to ensure your plan stays on track and optimized for your changing needs. Here’s how a medical weight loss program at our practice can help you shed those pounds once and for all.
How medical weight loss works
Losing weight isn’t just about looking good; yes, it can certainly improve your confidence. But losing excess weight can also improve your overall health. In fact, being overweight is associated with serious medical problems, like heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and depression. Medical weight loss is designed to help you shed those extra pounds, so you can decrease your own risks for these and other weight-related problems.
Medical weight loss starts with a comprehensive medical evaluation, along with a discussion of your goals, your lifestyle, and even your concerns, so we can understand your needs and develop a plan just for you. Dr. Carolyn Riley is an experienced medical weight-loss physician, relying on the proven MetTrimMD program to help patients achieve their weight-loss goals faster and learn the healthy lifestyle tips they need to maintain those results.
MetTrimMD combines expert medical support with custom meal plans and weight-loss tools designed to work in the real world. During your journey, you’ll have regular visits to track your progress and adjust your plan, so it’s always fine-tuned for your needs. Our team will also perform routine medical checkups and nutritional counseling to keep you healthy throughout. Nutritional counseling can help you avoid feelings of deprivation and food cravings that can lead to bingeing and gaining weight.
