Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a science- and evidence-based approach to losing weight where you’re guided and monitored by a medical expert all along the way. Whether you want to lose weight to manage a health condition, to improve your mobility, or to boost your self-esteem, taking a medical approach ensures you’re doing it in a way that’s good for your health.

How does medical weight loss compare to other approaches?

If you’ve wanted to lose weight for some time, you’ve likely tried a few different approaches before turning to Dr. Gupta at Mindful Weight Loss. While fad diets, supplements, calorie counting, and other approaches might deliver some results, it can be difficult to navigate weight loss for yourself and to avoid regaining the weight later on. 

Key benefits of medical weight-loss plans at Mindful Weight Loss, which set them apart from other weight-management programs, include:

Science-based approach

While creating and implementing your medical weight-loss plan, Dr. Gupta takes your body’s natural composition and processes into account. He helps you overcome physiological and evolutionary hurdles that make weight loss difficult for the average human body. 

Individualization

Dr. Gupta personalizes your weight-loss plan based on your own preferences and current habits using the four pillars of weight loss: nutrition, behavior, physical activity, and medication. He can help you find a nutritional approach that doesn’t make you feel too constricted when it comes to food.

Mindfulness strategies

Changing your diet and behaviors is just one part of a comprehensive medical weight-loss plan. To help make your behavioral changes more sustainable, Dr. Gupta helps you learn mindfulness techniques to manage your feelings and thoughts around food and health. 

Which services does medical weight loss include?

Your medical weight-loss plan at Mindful Weight Loss includes numerous services that are easy to follow. You’ll schedule regular appointments to keep up with your treatment plan, make changes to it if necessary, and track your results. 

Your multimodal weight-loss plan includes:

  • An initial 60-minute visit, including body composition analysis
  • Two visits each month
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Reasonable physical activity for your skill level
  • Meal replacements
  • The Mindful Weight Loss app for regular communication and updates
  • Medication management
  • Mindfulness training
  • Monthly body composition analyses to assess your progress

Dr. Gupta and your other providers work together to make sure you’re taking an active role within your plan and seeing sustainable results. They also help you manage any conditions related to or worsened by excess body fat, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.
