Weight Management

THE ONE MEDICAL PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH FOR PATIENTS SEEKING TO LOWER THEIR WEIGHT, BECOME HEALTHIER, AND COMMIT TO A LIFESTYLE CHANGE.

WE HAVE PUT MONTHS OF RESEARCH INTO THE PROPER TREATMENT OF WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PATIENTS. WE HAVE READ MANY STUDIES, RESEARCHED MEDICATIONS, INCLUDING MANY OVER THE COUNTER. SOME STATE MIRACULOUS RESULTS, ETC. SOME DO NOT MEET WHAT THEY ADVERTISE. WE KNOW WHAT REALLY WORKS, AND WILL APPLY THAT TO EACH PATIENT.

WE LOOK AT THE STUDIES, AND WE CRITICALLY REVIEW THEM TO SEE IF THEY ARE PEER REVIEWED AND OTHER THINGS, TO ENSURE THEY ARE LEGITIMATE.

WE HAVE RESEARCHED ALL SOURCES ON THE TOPIC OF WEIGHT MANAGEMENT. THE MEDICAL ASPECT OF IT CAN BECOME VERY TECHNICAL, WITH MANY IDEAS AND TECHNIQUES STILL IN EVOLUTION. WE FEEL MANY ARE NOT VERY PATIENT CENTERED, NOT VERY HELPFUL TO THE MEDICAL LAYPERSON, AND HIGHLY STEEPED IN COMPLEX MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY. SO WE TOOK WHAT WE KNOW – THE REAL SCIENCE AND CURRENT KNOWLEDGE, AND WE SIMPLIFIED IT. WE USE WHAT WE KNOW WORKS, PER THE MEDICAL GUIDELINES, AND WE USE THESE SO WE CAN MAKE AN INDIVIDUAL PLAN FOR EACH PATIENT. A PLAN THAT WILL NOT ONLY WORK, BUT WILL WORK FOR A LIFETIME.

WE BASE OUR PROGRAM ON 4 PILLARS OF WEIGHT MANAGEMENT.

(As recommended by the Obesity Medical Association, & The Endocrine Society Guidelines)

  1. CALORIES IN: THE AMOUNT OF CALORIES TAKEN IN EACH DAY, AND THE DIET THAT OUR PATIENTS CHOOSE SO THEY CAN STICK WITH THE AMOUNT OF CALORIES TAKEN IN EACH DAY. WE KNOW THAT WEIGHT LOSS IS MORE COMPLEX THAN THIS, BUT THIS SIMPLE TENET OF WEIGHT LOSS STILL APPLIES, AND HAS MERIT. IT IS STILL A GOOD WAY TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE, AS HUMANS, LOSE OR GAIN WEIGHT. (CALORIES IN VS CALORIES OUT)
  2. CALORIES OUT: THE AMOUNT OF CALORIES BURNED OFF EACH DAY, AND HOW THIS IS DONE. THIS MEANS EXERCISE, AND IS TAILORED TO EACH PATIENT. DID YOU KNOW YOU BURN CALORIES WHEN YOU SLEEP? WE CAN HELP YOU BURN MORE EVEN WHEN YOU ARE SLEEPING.
  3. THE USE OF MEDICATIONS: EACH TAILORED TO THE INDIVIDUAL PATIENT. SEVERAL OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE.
  4. POTENTIAL BEHAVIOURAL MODIFICATION. PATIENT DEPENDENT.

WE WANT OUR PATIENTS TO SUCCEED IN THEIR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY!
