Physician Supervised Weight Loss Q & A

What is Considered Overweight?

Each person’s body type is unique, but a great place to start to determine whether you may benefit from a weight-loss program is the body mass index (BMI) calculator. This very simple tool measures your percentage of body fat based on your height, weight, age, and gender. Once you input this information, you get a number that places you in one of the following categories:

  • Under 18.5: Underweight
  • Between 18.5 and 24.9: Normal weight
  • Between 25 and 29.9: Overweight
  • Over 30: Obese

The next step is to seek the counsel of a weight-loss expert at Dr. G’s who can perform a thorough analysis of your weight, your body type, your health, and any unique circumstances that may influence your weight.

Why Do I Need Physician-Supervised Weight Loss?

If, like millions before you, you’ve decided to lose weight, there’s no shortage of products and services that promise to get you to your weight-loss goals in no time flat. In fact, many of these claims seem almost too good to be true — and they mostly are. While some may deliver short-term results, few tackle the problem in an effective, and long-lasting, way.

By turning to a physician for help, you arm yourself with the best possible tools because your doctor takes many things into consideration when designing a weight-loss program for your unique situation, including your:

  • Body shape
  • Medical history
  • Lifestyle

When it comes to weight loss, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution and no magic bullet. It takes hard work and commitment, as well as a few crucial tools that can make all the difference in your weight loss.

How Does Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Work?

When you first come in, your weight-loss expert performs a thorough physical examination and reviews your medical history. The key to Dr. G’s weight-loss program is that your doctor completes comprehensive medical panels, including EKGs, and they’re armed with patented software that helps formulate your medication program.

The weight-loss experts at Dr. G’s understand that the best weight-loss solution for you may be different from another, so they customize a plan that may include one or more of the following:

  • Protein bars and shakes
  • Prescription medications
  • Weight-loss injections
  • Supplements
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise recommendations

To get you started, your physician may recommend Dr. G’s 5-Day Cleanse Kit, which provides the perfect jumpstart for your weight loss. From there, your weight-loss expert guides you through your weight loss, helping you overcome any hurdles along the way.
