Extra pounds come with added consequences, negatively impacting you mentally, physically, and emotionally. If you're tipping the scale at a dangerous weight, visiting your primary care physician can make a significant difference in your life. You may benefit from a medically-enhanced weight loss program offered by our Mid-Cities Direct Care provider, Dr. James Terry, if you're having trouble losing 20lbs or have a body mass index (BMI) of 30. To determine if you're a candidate, please visit our Grapevine, TX, office.


Benefits of Medical Weight Loss

When your body rids itself of fat, the advantages for your overall health are endless. Not only will you be happier and sleep better, but you can also quit fearing the dressing room, feel more in control of cravings, and keep up with your kids. Other reasons our Grapevine, TX, patients select our medical weight loss program include reduced blood pressure and risk of diabetes as well as other health conditions. It also improves cholesterol levels and boosts the general function of your organs, such as lungs suffering from asthma. To jumpstart your weight loss journey, talk to our primary care physician about our personalized plan tailored just for you.


Our Medical Weight Loss Program

The goal is to help you achieve and maintain your goal weight safely with professional assistance. Dr. James Terry works with you to shed the excess and keep it off. Once you visit our office for an initial consultation, which includes a medical examination, risk assessment, blood work, and nutrition counseling, monthly follow-up visits will be necessary to ensure success and guarantee a positive result. During these visits, we help you stay on track by providing and reviewing your dietary log and exercise journal, taking measurements, and monitoring blood pressure.


If you're struggling to lose a notable amount of weight, specifically 20 pounds or more, consult with our primary care physician to discuss how we can help. Dr. James Terry will address any questions or concerns you may have during the initial visit.

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.

Join the weight loss program in Grapevine by Mid-Cities Direct Care to make your life better!
