Procedure - Medical Weight Loss

At Ogden Clinic in Utah, we have specialists trained in obesity medicine who can help patients undergoing medical weight loss. Whether it’s from voluntary means, such as diet and exercise, or involuntary means, in cases where patients have lost weight due to an illness, our providers have the experience and tools to make sure patients are as healthy as possible. Contrary to popular belief, medical weight loss is not necessarily through the use of diet pills or surgery, but rather from examining the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Our specialists help patients make lifestyle changes that allow them to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight for life.

Specialists trained in obesity medicine look at a person’s whole lifestyle and medical history to understand the causes of their weight-related problems. By using this scientific and individualized approach, they can better understand how people process food, and what lifestyle factors are the greatest influence on their weight. In order to do this, our specialists rely on nutrition, physical activity, behavior therapy, and some medications to help our patients lead a healthier life.

  • Nutrition: A specialist will help you analyze your caloric intake and recommend a healthy diet that is rich in protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Physical Activity: The two keys to weight loss are eating right and exercising daily. A specialist can recommend exercises that help you reach your weight loss goals or build your strength following an injury or illness.
  • Behavior Therapy: Patients who struggle with overeating due to stress or anxiety can see a specialist for a variety of behavior therapies. A specialist will diagnose the root of their problem and find alternatives to help patients manage their condition. Through self-monitoring and meditation, patients can not only find peace but change their eating behaviors.
  • Medications: While prescription weight loss medications are not for every patient, they can be helpful for patients who are severely overweight or who have an underlying medical condition like diabetes or high blood pressure. Depending on your situation, a specialist can prescribe the appropriate weight loss medication to assist with other lifestyle changes.
