No matter how frequently you lose and gain weight, managing your weight loss with medical assistance increases your chances of long-term success. 

At Aesthetic Lab in Modesto and Turlock, California, Nandeesh Veerappa, MD, and Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C, provide compassionate support with medical supervision and nutritional guidance to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Your overall health and energy levels improve when you reach and maintain a healthy weight. If diet and exercise haven’t helped you shed pounds on your own, you might benefit from a weight loss management plan. We can help you begin a new, more successful journey.

Effects of weight on health

Extra weight puts more strain on your muscles, bones, and joints. The likelihood of developing knee osteoarthritis in overweight patients is 4-5 times higher.

Even losing just 5%-10% of your total body weight can significantly impact your health. Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and energy levels all improve with weight loss. Additionally, you lower your risk of obesity-related chronic diseases.

Your metabolism, your body’s systems, and inflammation are all impacted by fat cells. More fat cells lead to a higher risk of developing:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

Obesity also raises your risk of developing breast, colon, and endometrial cancer.

Weight loss management

At Aesthetic Lab, we’re committed to helping you reach your weight loss goals. 

A thorough health assessment is the first step in a supervised weight loss management program. We locate and address any issues preventing you from losing weight. You can also access professional guidance and knowledge, whether you want assistance in creating a balanced diet plan or establishing calorie targets.

Nutritional supplements

Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, nutritional supplements can help you lose weight. Depending on the supplement you take, you may notice a decreased appetite, a boost in energy levels, or feeling full while eating less. 

Lifestyle changes

By cutting back on your calorie intake and engaging in regular exercise, you can lose weight and keep it off. Our weight loss specialists will assist you with calorie counting, diet planning, and an exercise program that matches your fitness level.

Encouragement and stress management

We value positive encouragement and support at Aesthetic Lab. We are confident that your weight loss journey will produce better long-term results with ongoing support from medical professionals who genuinely care about your health and happiness.

Your provider will develop a personalized diet plan and schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your weight and adjust treatment as needed.

Do I need a weight-loss management program?

Do you feel alert and motivated when your day begins? Are you getting a good night’s sleep? Or do you frequently feel worn out and lethargic?

It’s normal to gain or lose a few pounds periodically at a healthy weight. Eating a balanced diet will help you avoid consuming more calories than your body can burn. You experience weight gain when you consume more calories than your body uses. 

Calorie burning varies significantly between individuals as well as within one person. For instance, you might discover that after overindulging on vacation, your clothing is tighter. 

Losing weight is difficult for many people. Staying motivated is challenging when the scale’s number never changes. If you’re overweight, you might need assistance to keep you on track to reach your weight loss goals and establish your energy balance. Help is available with Aesthetic Lab’s weight loss management program. Call today or make an appointment online.
