Medical Weight Loss in Grapevine, TX
Physician supervised medical weight loss at Grapevine, TX based Mid-Cities Direct Care is an intensive program aimed at helping you lose weight, reduce fat percentage, make better lifestyle choices, and optimize your health to promote longevity. Our program is NOT designed to encourage you to buy pre-packaged meals that may or may not be always available to you or even healthy, but rather help you to make the right choices so that eventual termination of the program will enable you to continue your path of wellness. The program helps you to improve your diet, exercise, and lifestyle while reducing health morbidities, such as dyslipidemia, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. Teamwork from both the patient and the doctor are expected. In addition to medications, weekly B-12 shots will help restore your energy. Indirect calorimetry, every 3 months, will identify your personal caloric need so you’ll know how much to eat and/or how much to exercise to lose weight. You will be coached on your diet and exercise regimen. So come committed to our Grapevine office.
A comprehensive lab (blood) work-up is first analyzed to reveal any physiologic barriers to natural weight loss. The labs help identify if the weight gain is in part a result of an imbalance of hormones such as thyroid, insulin, testosterone, growth hormone, and/or cortisol. Metabolic testing through indirect calorimetry is assessed to determine how many calories you actually need to sustain bodily activities. This result is compared with your total caloric intake from your diet diary and your energy expenditure from your exercise. Weight gain and weight loss is ultimately an imbalance of caloric intake and caloric expenditure. To help you get control, one or two medications can be prescribed to suppress appetite and increase metabolism. We use an appetite suppressant and HCG. The plan includes a weekly B-12 shot, a weekly weigh-in, medication, EKG, diet diary, metabolic testing, and accountability. Accountability is strongly encouraged. The client is expected to put forth the effort to change their lifestyle that will promote health through better eating and exercise. The client should NOT expect to lose weight by simply taking a pill and/or eating a pre-packaged meal plan. The core of the program is to correct the physiologic deficiencies through medications, nutriceuticals, and correct lifestyle flaws through better eating habits, and exercise.
