Weight Loss Q & A

How can a doctor help me lose weight?

The math of weight loss is deceptively simple — consistently use more calories than you consume. However, other factors can interfere with this process, which is why so many people struggle to lose excess weight and keep it off. For example, you could have a hormonal imbalance that interferes with your weight loss efforts. You might also underestimate the calories you consume or overestimate your daily caloric needs. 

The team at ALTOGETHER LOVELY can help you reach your goals with personalized weight loss plans. They provide testing and physical exams to identify any health barriers to weight loss and identify your specific caloric needs. This data enables them to create the right plan to help you lose weight and keep it off. 

What is included in a weight loss program?

The team at ALTOGETHER LOVELY begins with a comprehensive consultation and physical exam, including lab tests. They talk to you about your medical history, diet, and exercise habits. They also need to know about your previous attempts to lose weight. 

Then, your provider works with you to create and implement a sustainable weight loss program. In addition to a personalized meal plan, they help you introduce or add physical activity to your daily routine. Your plan includes customized nutrition and exercise counseling from certified nutritionists and fitness trainers. 

Your provider also offers treatments to address any underlying health issues that can interfere with your success, such as an underactive thyroid. Additionally, they can recommend supplements to optimize your health and bodily functions to support your weight loss efforts.

They also offer ongoing support during routine checkups to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed to keep you on track.

How can I get rid of fat for good?

Whether you participate in a weight loss program at ALTOGETHER LOVELY or have made the healthy choices necessary for weight loss on your own, the team offers WarmSculpting treatments by SculpSure to help you get rid of those last pockets of stubborn fat. 

WarmSculpting by SculpSure uses innovative laser technology to heat and destroy your unwanted fat cells, which allows your body to flush them out with other waste products. The treatment is an excellent option to get rid of unwanted fat in trouble areas like your abdomen, thighs, flanks, or back.
