Medical Weight Loss
Medical weight loss usually refers to the proactive management of diet, fitness, and healthy behaviors conducted by a physician. These programs often include comprehensive metabolic testing and medical diagnostics to monitor physiological shifts during the course of a program.While medical weight-loss programs have a much stronger success rate than most self-managed diet regiments, both are often focused on the same essential goal: improving an individual’s nutritional and exercise habits.
Managing nutrition is a fundamental aspect of medical weight loss that is often overlooked by most consumers who are interested in committing to a program. The key to losing weight is managing diet – consuming foods that are low in fat, low in refined grains and sugars, and high in natural, whole, fiber-rich foods, as taught at the Pritikin health resort in Miami over the past 40 years.Pritikin maintains a staff of nutritionists and physicians to ensure the Pritikin Diet is followed methodically and effectively – a benefit which is not common in most medical weight-loss programs within the U.K.
