Why It Might Be Time for You to Try Medical Weight Loss

Like millions of Americans, you’ve tried every diet out there, and you may have even had some success. But nothing seems to work for long, and as you get older, nothing seems to work at all.

You’ve always heard about medical weight loss programs but never seriously looked into them — until now. You probably have many questions about what medical weight loss entails, whether it’s right for you, if it really works, and if so, why. We get those questions a lot.

At Premier Primary Care in Union City, Tennessee, Dr. James Batey and our team of weight loss specialists understand your concerns, and we hope you’ll see us so we can answer your questions. Meanwhile, here are some reasons we think you should consider our medical weight loss program.

Why it’s time to consider medical weight loss

If you’re tired of doing math every time you eat, checking in with a group leader, drinking shakes instead of eating meals, and wondering whether you’re doing weight loss “right,” medical weight loss can ease all your concerns. You know it’s time to consider medical weight loss when:

1. You can’t lose weight on your own

Some people can cut their calories and add a few more reps to their workout routine and lose weight whenever they want. If you’re not one of them, you’re not alone. Losing weight is tough because it typically involves complicated biology that goes way beyond calories in and calories out.

Having medical experts on your team means you benefit from an experienced physician trained to identify the unique factors in your body that have been blocking your weight loss efforts. 

2. You need more than a cheerleader

If you’ve ever joined a weight loss program that pairs you up with a diet “counselor” or requires group meetings, you may enjoy the support for a while, but they aren’t trained to give you the medical advice you need to address your unique metabolism and health conditions.

At Premier Primary Care, we come alongside you every step of your weight loss journey and encourage you plenty, but our support goes beyond high fives and uplifting texts; we design a program geared toward your needs and your body, so the weight comes off quickly and healthily.

3. You suspect a health condition is thwarting your weight loss

If your weight loss has stalled, it may not be your fault. Many health conditions can hinder your ability to lose weight and may even cause you to gain weight, including:

Also, as you age and your metabolism naturally slows down, it may be harder to lose weight than when you were younger.

4. Nothing else has worked

The main reason to consider a medical weight loss program is that you’ve already proven to yourself that other approaches don’t work. Stop trying to diagnose yourself and prescribe your own treatment. Being overweight or obese is a medical condition that calls for medical supervision. Our program works because it’s based on science and your unique body.

Why it’s crucial to lose weight

No one has to tell you that being overweight feels uncomfortable. And it’s normal to want to lose weight for personal reasons, including an easier time shopping for clothes and looking better when you glance in the mirror. But we think your health trumps all other reasons for losing weight. And our weight loss patients gain tremendous health benefits, including:

They also report feeling happier, more energetic, and more confident. If you want to improve your health and your life by losing weight safely and successfully, schedule an appointment by calling our friendly staff or booking online today.
