What Makes our Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program Effective and Sustainable

DIY diets tend to offer quick fixes that fail to provide lasting results. Medical weight loss programs are an excellent choice for those seeking a reliable and sustainable path to a healthier weight, and they provide lasting results. 

Here at Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC, board-certified family nurse practitioner Albalira Gibson-Borrelli, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, and the rest of our team in Middletown, New York, offer effective medically-supervised weight loss programs that help patients reach their weight loss goals and keep the weight off long term.

There are differences between DIY weight loss programs and those offered by Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC. In this post, our experts detail why medical weight loss programs are much more effective and sustainable than one-size-fits-all DIY diets. 

Personalized approach

The research is clear: medically-supervised weight loss programs are highly effective. Do-it-yourself diets are a one-size-fits-all approach to slimming down, and we believe this is a drawback. Our medically-supervised weight loss programs are customized, taking into account each client as a unique individual. What works for one person isn’t always effective for another.

Our programs begin with comprehensive assessments, including medical history, lifestyle, and personal goals, which enables our team to gain a wealth of insight needed to provide a comprehensive plan tailored to your individual needs and goals.

Medical supervision

Losing weight under medical supervision ensures safety, especially for individuals with health issues like diabetes or heart conditions. Our team can prescribe medications to manage appetite to keep you on track and check for problems that may interfere with weight loss, such as thyroid disorders and sleep apnea. 

As an invaluable part to a successful weight loss journey, regular check-ins with our team also help adjust the plan as needed, addressing plateaus and managing side effects.

Holistic approach

Losing weight is about more than counting calories. A successful weight loss program involves changing the thoughts about food and behaviors that contribute to overweight and obesity. Behavior modification is crucial to keeping weight off over the long term. 

Understanding your relationship with food is paramount to addressing emotional and psychological factors that contribute to challenges in maintaining a healthy weight. In addition, our team provides individualized exercise plans to create a well-rounded weight loss program. 

Education and support

Our weight loss programs arm you with the nutrition education, exercise knowledge, and lifestyle choices that lead to long-term success. Rather than quick fixes, medical weight loss programs focus on sustainable changes, ensuring long-term health benefits. 

Access to the latest treatments

When you try to lose weight without the guidance of a medical professional, you miss out on effective science-backed therapies. Opting for medically-supervised weight loss opens the door to the latest therapies and medications rooted in weight loss science. 

You also have access to meal planning, which gives you an edge on your path to lasting weight loss.
