Weight Loss Q & A

Why is it so hard to lose weight?

Sometimes losing weight is more than just counting calories or exercising more, especially if you have a medical condition that makes it difficult to lose weight. While reducing your calorie intake and increasing your physical activity are important aspects of weight loss, learning what to eat and how much to eat can help improve your chances of success.

With doctor-supervised weight loss from Dr. Tahboub, you’ll learn how your body burns calories, how many calories you need to consume in a day, and safe ways to incorporate exercise without getting injured.

What health conditions can benefit from weight loss?

Maintaining a normal body weight is critical to good health overall, but it’s especially important if you have any of the following medical conditions:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Certain types of cancer, such as breast and colon cancer
  • High cholesterol
  • Atherosclerosis

Excess body weight increases your risk of developing these medical conditions, among others, and can make it difficult to manage these conditions successfully if you’ve already been diagnosed. Dr. Tahboub offers personalized weight loss plans to improve your health and help you regain confidence in your body and appearance.

What is doctor-supervised weight loss?

Doctor-supervised weight loss at Internal Medicine Primary Care involves a thorough assessment and physical exam to understand your current struggles with weight, eating habits, and lifestyle behaviors that make weight loss difficult.

Dr. Tahboub uses this information along with medical data – such as your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and hormones – to develop a complete picture of how your body burns calories.

Dr. Tahboub then calculates how many calories you need to consume per day to lose weight safely. He also provides extensive education and resources so you learn what to eat, how much to eat, and how to read nutrition labels for weight loss, and any medical conditions you might have.

What are the benefits of doctor-supervised weight loss?

Since doctor-supervised weight loss takes into account your specific caloric and health needs, it has many benefits, including:

  • Personalized weight loss plans with realistic goal setting
  • Resources to learn about nutrition, counting calories, and safe types of exercise
  • Ongoing support from Dr. Tahboub
