The main benefits you can take advantage of when choosing medical weight loss with Melissa at Get Your Body Back Wellness Center include:
Melissa tailors each medical weight loss program to your unique needs, lifestyle, food preferences, medical history, and more.
To determine which weight loss program is best for you, Melissa weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. She completes a physical exam and reviews your lifestyle, medical history, possible symptoms, medication regimen, and meal and exercise preferences.
You might need a blood test to evaluate your hormone levels, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other indicators of possible disease risk factors.
Melissa develops a custom nutrition and weight loss plan just for you. She takes into account your food preferences when developing menu plans to ensure your program is something you can stick with long-term. There are multiple weight loss plans you can choose from based on your budget and needs.
Melissa prescribes hormone therapy or appetite-suppressing medication, if needed, to make your weight loss journey as simple and effective as possible.
You also have the option of vitamin B12 injections, QWO® injections to reduce cellulite, methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections to break down fat, IV nutrition therapy, PiYo™ exercise classes, and more.
Melissa can help you manage diabetes, high blood pressure, or other diseases when necessary. It’s important to take any medications exactly as directed.
Follow up with Melissa in person or virtually weekly, monthly, or as needed until you reach your ideal weight. She alters your treatment plan whenever needed as you begin to lose excess weight.
You can expect to drop about 1-2 pounds weekly, up to five pounds per week, in some cases, until you reach your goal. Melissa also helps you maintain your new body weight long-term.
