Traditional Weight Loss Q & A

How can weight loss improve my health?

Weight loss is about so much more than just looking thin. It’s about giving your body everything it needs to be as healthy as possible, and in the process, you look and feel better all the way around.

Studies have shown that even a 5% decrease in your overall weight can significantly impact your overall health. If you weigh 200 pounds, you can see an overall improvement in your wellness by shedding only 10 pounds. These benefits typically include:

  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Decreased insulin resistance
  • Decreased cholesterol levels
  • Improved sleep
  • Lesser pain in your joints and elsewhere
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increased confidence

Your risk factors for health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, vascular disease, metabolic disorders, stroke, and high blood pressure also lessen significantly with efforts toward a healthier lifestyle.

How does the program work?

Dr. Valentine has created a safe and effective weight loss program that begins with an in-depth consultation. This visit is key to helping create a weight loss plan that works for you.

During this consultation, Dr. Valentine takes a thorough health history, completes a physical exam, and collects labs. These elements give him a complete picture of your health, so he can identify medical problems that may be contributing to your weight gain.

Your initial consultation also includes:

  • Complete body fat and BMI analysis
  • Complete blood panel
  • EKG, if needed
  • Dietary and nutritional counseling
  • Prescription appetite suppressants, if indicated
  • Dietary supplements
  • Nutritional supplements, including B12 and fat-burning injections
  • Exercise counseling

As part of your first visit, you meet with a certified nutritional coach, who works with you to develop an eating plan that fits your needs.

Your weight loss plan includes Dr. Valentine’s own healthy weight loss shakes, protein bars, vitamins, and dietary supplements. These trusted products support your body’s needs throughout your weight loss and beyond.

What happens during follow-up visits?

At your follow-up visits, the focus is on evaluating and improving your progress toward making your lifestyle changes into lifelong habits, even after you meet your goals.

Your regular visits include:

  • Checking vital signs
  • Weigh-in
  • Evaluation of goals
  • Assessment of your progress

You also have a chance to ask questions and get the support you need for the healthy and nurturing changes you’re making. Your weight loss team is with you every step of the way.
