Weight loss is often a challenge. While a healthy diet and regular exercise can promote weight loss, they are often difficult to maintain for more than a short time, and the weight loss itself is often slow and unreliable. Diet and exercise can help you lose weight, but on their own they are rarely enough – especially if you suffer from severe obesity.
In order to consistently lose weight and do so in a way that is healthy, effective, and based on sound medical science, many of those struggling with obesity turn to what’s known as “medical weight loss” – a series of strategies for controlling weight that have been proven by medical science, all while under the supervision of a trained doctor or medical expert.
What is Medical Weight Loss?
The vast majority of weight loss strategies are either difficult to maintain or based on faulty science. Most diets are simply forms of starvation that can actually hurt your chances of long-term weight loss, while for many, diet and exercise alone are not enough.
Medical weight loss focuses on medical-based weight loss strategies under the supervision of a trained physician or bariatric surgeon. Strategies include, but are not limited to:
- Personalized Diet and Nutrition Plan – Based on your specific body type, your age, your nutritional needs, and more, you will have a personalized nutritional action plan that will ensure healthy weight loss using only empirically validated research.
- Regular Updates and Monitoring – Meeting with a doctor often to monitor your health and determine the success of your weight loss efforts. This monitoring assures fewer complications and also provides additional accountability for your weight loss goals.
- Determination of Weight Loss Medication – You and your doctor will decide if any weight loss medications make sense given your health and needs. Often there are alternative strategies to weight loss medicine, but the option is often there for those that need additional support.
- Weight Loss Surgery – Perhaps the most effective of all medical weight loss strategies is bariatric surgery (surgery for weight loss). Studies have proven it is the most effective way to lose weight and control your weight loss for the rest of your life, with many showing as much as 65% weight excess weight loss or more within the first year.
There are many different techniques for medical weight loss. Many are designed to lose small amounts of weight over time effectively, all through a customized weight loss plan.
Bariatric surgery is also often an ideal option. When diet and exercise have failed, or you are struggling with obesity-related diseases that require an immediate intervention, weight loss surgery is the most medically verified way to lose on average an extra 65% of your body weight or more.
Weight Loss Surgery and Medical Weight Loss
The most effective weight loss strategies are those that combine weight loss surgery and medical weight loss techniques. Bariatric surgery, like those Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez performs in Tijuana for patients across the United States and Mexico, is the first step.
Solutions like gastric sleeve and gastric bypass have been medically proven to promote excess weight loss by an average of 65% or more – enough to reduce and cure most obesity-related diseases. When combined with other medical weight loss strategies, such as an individualized diet and exercise plan, the result is substantial weight loss that is both easier to lose and easier to maintain.
