Medicine Ball Workout

Unhealthy weight is a chronic disease
requiring long-term treatment. 

Our team practices the principles of obesity medicine.  Based on these principles, we prescribe personalized medical goals.

 

These principles are:

  • Nutrition

  • Exercise

  • Self-monitoring

  • Long-term appetite suppression

There are FDA approved medications and devices for long-term weight control.

The goal of medical treatment for unhealthy weight is to live longer, healthier lives.

Consult with us. Remember, it's never just about the medications/devices, nutrition, monitoring, nor exercise. All four principles of obesity medicine must be followed resulting in significant life-style changes and sustained weight control. If you're ready, bring the motivation; we bring the knowledge and training.
