Weight Loss Q & A

What is weight loss?

Weight loss is the process of reducing the amount of fat on your body. Rather than focusing on minimizing your size, you should take an approach to weight loss that prioritizes your overall health and wellness. 


With professional help losing weight, you’re more likely to achieve permanent results that restore or improve your health. 


Plenty of crash diets out there might offer quick results, but keeping the weight off becomes difficult when you stop the diet.


At Healthy Lifestyle Medicine, the team creates and manages your weight loss plan to make sure you can maintain your results for years to come. They teach you basic principles of nutrition and how to meet your body’s needs. 

How does weight loss work?

Careful planning goes into your weight loss program at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine. The team starts the process by evaluating your health and current diet and lifestyle. They also help you set achievable goals that you can pursue throughout your program. 


The team develops your custom weight loss plan using advanced testing services and weight loss approaches. It may involve:

Prescription weight loss medication

Prescription weight loss medications may assist you as you change your eating habits with a weight loss program. They work by suppressing or reducing your appetite or making you feel fuller sooner. Vitamin injections can help by boosting your metabolism and cardiovascular health. 

Nutrition and food inflammation testing (FIT)

Nutrition and FIT can help you and your providers identify foods that cause inflammation for you, which leads to both chronic and acute illness. The results of these tests help the team make beneficial recommendations for your diet. 

Diet therapies

Nutrition specialists and your providers at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine collaborate to recommend diet therapies suitable for your lifestyle, such as the ProLon® Fasting Mimicking Diet. 

EMSCULPT neo®

EMSCULPT neo is a body-shaping treatment that helps you build muscle while eliminating fat cells in specific targeted areas. It’s not a weight loss treatment on its own, but it can help you refine certain areas after you’ve reached your weight loss goals. 

How can I benefit from weight loss?

Losing body fat with a health-conscious approach guided by physicians and nutritionists can lead to long-term benefits for your physical and mental well-being. It can lower your risk for a plethora of diseases and conditions, including:


  • High blood pressure
  • High triglycerides
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Several types of cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sleep apnea
  • Chronic pain

Additionally, losing as little as 5-10% of your body fat can lead to increased energy and less inflammation throughout your body. This means you may experience a reduction in symptoms of any chronic condition you have that causes pain or discomfort.
