Why a Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program Can Help You Achieve Your Weight Loss Goals Better Th

Whether for aesthetic or health-related problems, lots of people would like to lose weight. With all of those good intentions, why don't do-it-yourself plans for weight loss at home usually produce the results you're seeking? Medical supervision can help you finally attain your weight loss goals, through technical knowledge and expertise in addition to individualized personal support.

At Grace Family Health, we're here to help you along every step of the way on your weight loss journey. With the supervision of our experienced care team, led by Lily Phillips, MD, you'll be amazed at how effective your weight management efforts can be. If you can lose just 5-10% of your body weight, you'll start to see a real change for the better in your overall health and wellbeing.

Figuring out your weight loss factors

Weight loss isn't always as simple as calories in, calories out. A lot of other factors can come into play, from your daily schedule to your personal and family history with conditions like diabetes. You need the expert guidance of a trained medical professional to sort all that out and figure out where you should focus your energy for successful weight loss.

At the beginning of your medically supervised weight loss journey, we start by taking your complete personal and family history. This helps us identify factors like sleep issues, emotional and psychological complications, and family history of any relevant diseases or health conditions, all of which can negatively impact your ability to lose weight. Once we've identified the source of your struggles, we can help you find the right solution so that you can safely achieve your goals at last.

Balancing your behaviors

It's important to approach weight loss steadily, instead of swinging back and forth between periods of intense effort or fad dieting and periods when you let things go and overindulge. Over-exercising or restricting your food intake too rigorously can also be harmful for your physical and mental health, both in the short term and in the long run.

Under medical supervision, you don't need to worry about calibrating the right balancing of healthy behaviors and choices. We can help you set reasonable goals for your current body, lifestyle, and personal and family health history. We can also recommend any procedures, treatments, or other forms of support that we think could help keep you on track.

Support for real success

Trying to lose weight can be an emotional roller coaster, bringing up complex feelings and competing emotional needs. Managing all that on your own can quickly grow to be just too much, causing you to give up or compromise on your weight loss goals.

That's where medical supervision works to your advantage in the long term. Over the course of multiple appointments, we continue to check in with you about your goals, behaviors, and any problems that might arise over the course of your weight loss journey. With our care team in your corner, you can rest assured of success in improving your health through weight management.

To get started with medically supervised weight management, contact Grace Family Health now. You can request an appointment at our Murrieta, Menifee, and Temecula, California, offices over the phone or online.
