More than 70% of Americans are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Carrying extra weight can lead to significant health issues, such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, and heart problems.
Body mass index (BMI) measurements are a guideline to help determine potential health risks associated with weight. A body mass index between 25 and 29.9 indicates you may be overweight, while a BMI above 30 indicates you may be obese.
If you’re overweight or obese, you probably know that losing weight can benefit your health and improve your quality of life. But losing weight and keeping it off long-term can be hard. If you’ve struggled to lose weight in the past, it’s time to learn more about medical weight loss.
At Apex Medical Professionals, we’re here to help. Walid Elkhalili, MD, Basel Batarseh, MD, and our compassionate team are proud to offer medical weight loss management to our patients. Whether you want to lose 10 pounds or even more, our multi-approach weight loss programs are tailored to your needs.
We have the knowledge and resources for weight loss success
Many people who try to lose weight on their own fail. Their intentions are good, but all too often, they don’t lose the weight, or they fail to keep it off long-term. For lasting weight loss, you need a personalized program that addresses, not only your weight loss goals, but also for the lifestyle changes you need to achieve them.
Our team begins with a complete review of your medical history, current health, and weight loss goals. We identify any conditions or medications that could impact your ability to lose weight, and we develop a plan that works with you instead of against you.
We perform a full body scan that evaluates your body’s unique composition of muscle mass and fat. Throughout your weight loss journey, we perform body scans to track your progress.
Our physicians have expertise in weight loss strategies, and they use their knowledge to develop a customized nutrition plan with caloric intake goals that fit into your lifestyle. Our team helps you choose healthy, nutritious foods, and we help you choose exercise routines and ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily life.
In combination with a healthy diet and exercise plan, we offer oral and injectable weight loss medications, such as Saxenda® and MIC B12, to enhance your weight loss results. Depending on your goals, weight loss medications can suppress your appetite, make you feel full, or increase your metabolism to help burn fat.
You’re not alone in your weight loss journey
Losing weight is a journey that takes time and dedication. If you’re doing it alone, it can be easy to burn out and lose motivation. Our multi-approach weight loss system gives you the support you need to achieve your goals.
Our team is here every step of the way to answer your questions and keep you motivated. We provide accountability and help you stay on track with your fitness and nutrition plans. If something about your weight loss program isn’t working for you, we’ll help you find a solution so you can continue losing weight.
Once you’ve reached your goal weight, we can help you find ways to maintain your healthy lifestyle choices in the long run. The key to lasting success with weight loss is making diet and activity changes that work with your body and lifestyle.
With our help, you can have success in losing weight. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Apex Medical Professionals today.
