Medically Supervised Diets Q & A

by Kelly Toulios

What is a medically supervised diet?

Medically supervised diets are eating plans that are focused on a person’s specific nutritional and health needs, based on medical research and overseen by a weight loss professional. Weight gain can occur for many reasons, and in order to lose that excess weight and keep it off for the long-term, it’s important to follow a diet plan that’s based on real nutritional science and optimized for results. Plus, medically supervised diets support better overall health as well.

How can optimizing my nutrition help me achieve and maintain a healthy weight?

Often, eating irregularities like overeating, binging and craving fatty or high-carb foods result from poor eating habits that rob the body of necessary nutrients. Today’s fast-paced lifestyles and easy access to “convenience” foods make it easy to fill up on unhealthy alternatives that can increase cravings and even make us feel hungry faster. Medically supervised diets are designed to overcome these issues so weight loss efforts are properly supported - and more successful. When the body gets the nutrients it needs, cravings and other poor eating habits can be eliminated without feelings of hunger that can often sabotage even the most sincere dieter’s efforts at losing weight.

How do medically supervised diets compare to commercial diet plans or DIY diets?

Medically supervised diets can be customized for each patient’s specific needs and weight loss goals, evolving over time as the patient’s needs and goals change. Plus, they focus on what the body needs for good health and optimal nutrition, featuring options that support weight loss while helping patients build lean muscle mass for more efficient use of calories.

How can I get started with a medically supervised diet plan?

The first step is scheduling a consultation and evaluation appointment to discuss specific goals and any underlying health issues and to review both personal and family medical histories to ensure the diet is optimized for the patient’s specific needs.
