How Does Medical Weight Loss Work?

Often, when people try to lose weight, they get lost in the newest waves of diet foods, products, medications and pills, and aren’t able to keep up consistent dieting habits, and ultimately aren’t able to lose much weight at all.

With medical weight loss, we use our clinically tested and proven products, along with medical expertise to plan a system that is made just for you and your body. We find the specific anatomical and behavioral roadblocks that are holding you back from losing weight and plan a program that will help you to break through them. And you’ll never have to break through them alone; you have a whole team, including your own weight loss counselor, to stand by your side and give you education and support through your weight loss journey.


Medical Team

Our medical team at Whitehall Health Centre is part of what makes this weight loss diet program unique because they do not just create a weight loss plan; they create your weight loss plan that is geared toward your body’s needs and what needs to be changed in order for you to lose weight. The team takes the time to get to know you, both from a medical standpoint and from your eating habits and behaviors. They make sure they put all of their efforts into researching what will work for you.


Lab Testing

Once you begin your weight loss program, you will have a complete lab testing panel to find out the causes of why you are having difficulty losing weight.

Tests include measurements of:

  • Stress hormones
  • Appetite control hormones
  • Sex hormones
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Inflammation levels
  • Thyroid function
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Metabolism

This will give the medical team and your counselor a fuller, clearer scope of your body and what needs to be altered for you to lose weight. When the lab work has been analyzed, your counselor will then explain what these results mean and how they are going to be used in creating your weight loss program.


FDA Approved Appetite Suppressants

Just because you are starting a weight loss diet program does not mean that your cravings and eating habits automatically turn off. Unhealthy snacking between meals can completely derail your weight loss plan, and unfortunately, it often does for many people. That’s why we use doctor-prescribed appetite suppressants to help you curb your cravings and keep you feeling full between meals, so that you can stay on track with your new, healthy lifestyle and eating schedule.


Vitamin Injections

Vitamin B12 and lipovite injections work to break down fat and produce more energy for your body to use. For full effectiveness, especially with Vitamin B12, these should be injected rather than taken orally because the vitamin may pass through your system almost entirely without your body reaping any of the benefits. Together, Vitamin B12 and lipovite can help to accelerate the pounds you are shedding, or even get you through a weight loss plateau.


Hormone Injections

If you are looking to drop a large amount of weight in a short amount of time, hormone injections are an option for you. We use hormone injections for our rapid weight loss programs because they are practically a reset button for your metabolism. The hormones work to burn fat, yet protect your muscles and also allow you to reduce your calorie intake. Built on basic diet science, the rapid weight loss program is 23 days of hormone injections that will help you to lose one to three pounds per day for the duration of the program.


Weight Loss Counseling

Every week during your weight loss plan, you will meet with your counselor for one-on-one advising and education sessions. Your counselor will assess how you are doing with your program and what can be adjusted to further your progress. They are there to work with you through your challenges, as well as celebrate your successes and be the strong support system you need to get through your weight loss and help you maintain a healthy lifestyle even after your program has ended.


Lipo Laser

While you’re losing pounds and becoming a healthier you on your diet program, you’ll also have the ability to use our FDA Cleared SlenderRay™ Radiant Lipolysis services. This completely non-invasive, no-touch phototherapy system uses red light wavelengths to release and reduce fat in your trouble zones, like the thighs, abdomen and love handles, while tightening and toning them as well. By adding SlenderRay™ sessions to your regimen of weight loss supplements and high-protein diet, you’ll be able to see real inch loss along with the pounds you are losing.


High Protein Foods

For many people, the hardest part of a diet is making sure you get enough of the right foods on your own and can be the downfall of their weight loss. If you find you’re having difficulty keeping up with the high protein diet on your own, we offer pre-portioned meals and snacks as a convenient option for you. Our variety of protein-infused meals and snacks gives you plenty of options to find something that will satisfy your taste buds, so you can stay feeling full between meals while getting a sufficient amount of protein in your diet.


Weight Loss Supplements

Along with protein, your body needs more essential nutrients to fulfill its daily needs. Many people do not get these nutrients every day, resulting in deficiencies and making it that much harder to lose weight. We offer weight loss supplements that will help fill these gaps, so that you can focus your energy on losing more weight rather than wondering if you had enough nutrients in your diet that day. Some supplements support your metabolism and hormone levels, while others can even help boost your fat burning.
