Weight Loss Management Q & A

What causes weight gain?

As you probably already know, the primary cause of weight gain is consuming more calories from food than you burn off. Sometimes though, you follow a healthy diet and even exercise regularly, but you still can’t lose weight. In cases like this, weight gain — or the inability to lose weight — may stem from:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Since weight gain and difficulty dropping pounds can certainly be a warning sign of an underlying medical condition, it’s important to get your primary care physician involved in your weight loss journey.

How can I lose weight?

Losing weight isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Instead, your dedicated practitioner at Parkway Medical sits down with you and evaluates your overall health. This may even involve running some labs to see if something is awry in your body.

Once your weight loss specialist better understands your overall health, they can design a custom weight loss management plan that’s specific for your individual needs. Your plan might involve:

  • FDA-approved prescription weight loss medications
  • Dietary and nutritional counseling
  • Exercise and activity planning
  • Regular physician-supervised weigh-ins

Once you start getting closer to your goal weight, your practitioner can even let you know if you’re a candidate for body contouring treatments. Between noninvasive SculpSure® sessions and minimally invasive Smartlipo™ by Cynosure® treatments, you can tone and sculpt problem areas that seem resistant to diet and exercise.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

The weight loss specialists at Parkway Medical stress the importance of learning healthy lifestyle changes on your journey, rather than focusing on a specific target number. As long as you’re losing about 1-2 pounds per week, you’re right on track.

The team can help you with your weight loss management needs whether you have 10 pounds to lose or 100 pounds to drop. They work around your goals and your lifestyle to help you lose weight and keep it off for good.
