Weight Loss Program
Have you been going to the gym regularly and eating well but still are not seeing the weight loss results you desire? You’re not alone. Losing weight can often feel like a losing battle – but it doesn’t have to be. Adriel Perez and the expert providers at Diabetes & Weight Loss Center are proud to offer personalized weight loss programs that can help you and your loved ones lose your extra weight and keep it off long-term.
Comprehensive Weight Loss Program
Losing weight and keeping it off is all about making changes to your lifestyle that you can maintain for the long-term. At Diabetes & Weight Loss Center, we understand that a patient's lifestyle modifications are going to be unique to them. Adriel Perez and his team of compassionate providers work with all of our patients on a personal level to understand your daily habits and tailor their weight loss program to your specific needs.
In addition to weight loss programs, our team offers regular counseling sessions to make sure our patients are staying on track. If needed, we can make adjustments to your plan throughout your counseling sessions to ensure you achieve your ultimate weight loss goals. Once you hit your weight loss goal, we are happy to provide you with a maintenance program that ensures you keep the weight off for good.
Nutrition management is our primary focus when it comes to weight loss. Our team puts a strong emphasis on eating well-balanced meals in moderate portions throughout the day. At Diabetes & Weight Loss Center, we also understand that your nutritional needs are going to be unique to you. That’s why we’re proud to offer personalized nutrition programs to all of our patients.
When creating your comprehensive nutrition plan, we address your behaviors, lifestyle choices, healthy habits, and metabolism. During your initial consultation, we may ask you questions about your daily eating habits, your fitness routines, and what your life looks like day-to-day. We will also assess your current weight and body composition. From there, our experts will create a nutrition plan personalized to you and your lifestyle. If needed, we are happy to make adjustments to your nutrition plan throughout your weight loss journey. Our goal is to ensure you are seeing the results you desire while maintaining a lifestyle that makes you happy.
Medical Weight Loss
If our patients are sticking to our nutrition plan and still not seeing results, we may suggest they try medical weight loss. Medical weight loss programs are plans that use the assistance of appetite-regulating medications to help patients lose their desired amount of weight. Adriel Perez and his team may also suggest medical weight loss in the event you have type 2 diabetes.
At Diabetes & Weight Loss Center, we are proud to use glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) for our medical weight loss programs. This medication, also commonly used to treat type 2 diabetes, offers our patients a safe and effective way to lose weight. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring hormone that targets areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and food intake. It also slows how quickly the stomach empties, which makes you feel fuller for longer. When taken regularly, this medication helps our patients regulate food intake and appetite, resulting in weight loss that can be maintained long-term.
Our weight loss programs are made easier and more convenient with the help of our telehealth services. Telehealth services allow all of our patients to get the comprehensive care they need from the comfort of their own home, car, office, or wherever they have internet or cellular service.
What is Wegovy®?
Wegovy® (semaglutide) is the latest FDA-approved medication for weight loss treatment. Wegovy® emulates the effects of the hormone naturally found in the human body which targets the hunger regulation centers of the brain, as a result suppressing your appetite. For those who have tried and failed to shed excess weight, Wegovy® offers a new hope. With its proven effectiveness, this cardio-protective medication can help patients achieve their weight loss goals even when other methods have fallen short.
Wegovy® comes in an easy-to-administer pen that is preset with the dose you are taking and a hidden needle. It is taken once a week on the same day each week, any time of day, with or without food.
Clinical Trials showed patients on Wegovy® lost an average of 15% of their body weight. On average, Diabetes & Weight Loss Center patients lose 25-30 pounds in the first 12 weeks and with long-term use resulting in weight loss up to 30%. Wegovy® should be used with a reduced calorie meal plan and increased physical activity. Medical supervision is required while on your regimen.
