I know it may seem like a strange time of year to discuss your options for a weight loss doctor as we are, literally, about 24 hours from bowls of candy at every location you enter, all day tomorrow. That is just the beginning. Your October is going to roll right into Thanksgiving that will roll right into Christmas cookies and holiday parties and special meals galore. The more I think about it, the more it seems like this is the very best time to be telling you all about our weight loss doctor.
What does a weight loss doctor offer that I can’t get on my own?
- Accountability: Oceanside Urgent Care has a weekly check in where you are weighed and given more of your supplement or prescribed medication. It is a time, once a week where you can check in with a medical professional. There is a lot that goes into losing weight. It is nice to have a weight loss doctor available to keep you accountable. Believe me, you will remember you have to weigh in when making decisions about what to eat.
- Appetite Help/Medical intervention: As hinted above that we provide either herbal or prescribed medication to help you feel fuller. Whether you receive a appetite suppressant, fiber, a weekly B-12 shot, or all three your weight loss doctor is there to make this time as pleasant for you as possible.
- Get a Baseline: We make sure that you are aware of where you are starting from. We give a thorough medical examination, including an EKG at the time you start your weight loss. A body composition analysis helps us to get a baseline of your body make-up. Personally, I am afraid of my body fat percentage….probably means I ought to get in there ASAP.
- Medically monitor your progress: Oceanside Urgent Care provides you with a nutritional plan to follow. We support you nutritionally and medically as your weight comes off.
The best time to find a weight loss doctor isn’t in January after you have put on an additional 20 pounds through the holidays. Start your journey now and make sure that 20 pounds doesn’t find its way to your thighs in the first place.
