Continue reading today’s post to learn what medical weight loss is and call Sunrise Health today to see how we can help.

What it is

Medical weight loss is a weight management program that takes place in a clinical setting with a licensed healthcare professional. Medical weight loss programs usually provide services such as nutrition, physical activity counseling, and behavioral therapy. Unlike many other approaches that are available, clinics that offer medical weight loss attempt to treat the whole person by looking at the details of their health history. Clients are not assumed to have a lack of willpower, but a number of other factors which make weight loss more challenging.

What it is Not

Medical weight loss is not a “quick” solution like surgery or diet pills, instead, this approach is the slow and steady one that will help you to make positive changes for life. It is weight-management based on what medical science has shown will target the root causes of your struggle with weight gain and loss. The trained doctors and nurses at Sunrise Health in the Bay Area will provide the treatment and guidance that you need, but you are in charge of whether or not you act on their advice.

Who Benefits?

Absolutely anyone who wants to take control of their health and move in a more positive direction can benefit from medical weight loss. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, Sunrise Health in the Bay Area can provide the advice, support, and help that you need to achieve your goals. We truly want to help you succeed and feel more confident and happy in your own skin, which is why we offer a free consultation where we really listen to you.

What We Offer 

During the consultation, you can expect a physical exam with lab work, a weight loss plan that is tailored specifically to your body and lifestyle, and more. We do not believe in the one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss, which is why your weight loss plan will contain specific, yet attainable goals for you. We also offer FDA-approved prescription appetite suppressants, weekly visits with the doctor, B12 injections to maintain your energy levels, and phones staffed by nurses who are available to answer questions and provide the help and support you need.
