Weight Loss Q & A

How does weight affect my health?

Being overweight isn’t just a cosmetic concern. The heavier you are, the more likely you are to experience serious health problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Joint pain (e.g., knee)
  • Back pain

Excess weight also affects your mental health. Many people who are obese experience depression and anxiety. If you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, but your weight increases or stays the same, weight loss treatment can help.

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Weight loss at Shift Wellness is a custom treatment program designed to help you lose weight. It uses a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, nutritional counseling, prescription medications, and regular checkups to boost your metabolism and improve your quality of life.

The team also uses personal training techniques, like yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi, to boost their patient’s physical activity and promote weight loss.

If you’ve tried yo-yo dieting or nutritional fads, but are unable to achieve long-lasting, noticeable results, consider weight loss. The team at Shift Wellness can develop a custom treatment regimen that aligns with your individual needs and health history.

What happens during a weight loss program?

Weight loss programs at Shift Wellness begin with a comprehensive physical exam and review of your medical history.

During the initial consultation, your provider also scans your body with the Fit3D Body Scanner. This advanced system shows you exactly what your body looks like and provides detailed metrics regarding body fat composition.

Additionally, Fit3D tracks your posture and balance. Throughout weight loss treatment, your Shift Wellness provider refers to your original scan, tracking your progress. As a patient, you can also access the Fit3D app on your phone. The app provides access to your scan data, 24 hours a day.

How long does it take to achieve weight loss?

The length of time it takes you to lose weight depends on your goals for treatment, your health history, and your custom care plan. No two weight loss treatment programs are exactly alike, but most people experience noticeable results within the first three months.

It’s important to remember that weight loss doesn’t happen overnight. There aren’t any quick fixes either. To achieve the best possible results, follow your Shift Wellness provider’s instructions carefully, drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet, manage your stress levels, and attend all of your follow-up appointments. Telehealth visits are available for your convenience.

The more you commit, the sooner you notice results.
