Losing weight is most effective when it is done in a natural, healthy, and sustainable way. Although medication and supplements may assist your efforts, there are no wonder drugs available that will work without lifestyle and diet changes. We understand that weight management can seem daunting at times, and often challenging. But when you choose Ogden Clinic’s weight loss and diet plan, you’re not on your own.

Obesity is the most common chronic disease in our society today and becoming the most prevalent in the world. Doctors in every specialty deal with the complications of obesity, yet very few are trained to manage the weight itself. That’s why we are proud to offer our medical weight loss program at Ogden Clinic.

What Is Medical-Assisted Weight Loss?

First, let’s distinguish what it is not: Medical-assisted weight loss isn’t a fad diet, a surgery, or a magic supplement. It is sustainable weight management based in scientific evidence that targets the root cause of weight gain. Ogden Clinic’s Medical Weight Loss Program focuses on dietary changes and the importance of physical activity. Sometimes medical weight loss is assisted with diet plans, hormone adjustments, appetite suppressants, and other measures.

Ogden Clinic’s Weight Management Program was designed to help real people get real results. This program is a collaborative effort between our patients and specialist, Dr. Rohn Rigby. Our patients must remain committed to their weight loss diet and exercise management program regimen, while our specialist offers guidance and support every step of the way. When the components work together, many Ogden Clinic patients find that they have improved energy, appetite control, and reduced cravings in just a couple of weeks.

As part of your medical weight loss plan with Ogden Clinic, expect to receive:

  • A comprehensive health and lifestyle review
  • Personalized dietary advice
  • Fitness tips
  • Nutritional education
  • Body composition test
  • Lab work
  • Sleep apnea evaluation
  • Medication evaluation

Tools, Supplements, and Diet Plans

You’ve got your game plan and your game face. Now, let’s gear you up with the right tools for your success. Dr. Rigby at Ogden Clinic will work with you to determine the best diet plans, weight loss supplements and other resources for your goals.

Medication

When it comes to medication, your Ogden Clinic Weight Management Specialist will first evaluate your existing prescriptions, paying close attention to “weight-positive” medication. Some patients benefit from adjusting their weight-positive prescriptions that may inhibit weight loss efforts. If Dr. Rigby adjusts your prescriptions to more weight-neutral drugs, he will carefully monitor your body’s response to these adjustments.

Dr. Rigby uses only FDA-approved weight loss medications and may talk to you about starting a medication-assisted regimen. Some weight loss pills are designed to suppress appetite while others block the absorption of fat in the body. Weight loss pills in combination with a proper diet and exercise plan help our patients change their eating habits with ease. As a board-certified physician from the American Board of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Rigby helps individuals with stubborn weight problems manage their condition. Dr. Rigby himself lost over 70 pounds and understands the obstacles that many people face trying to manage their weight.

The Ogden Clinic staff understands how weight loss is much more intricate than just calories in versus calories out. The medical weight loss program at Ogden Clinic equips our patients with the right medical tools, behavioral tools, and supportive relationships—and that’s the key to effective weight management.

Every person is different and requires a unique approach. Our specialist gives every patient a thorough medical evaluation, delving into areas such as hormones, metabolic analysis, quality of sleep, and more. Dr. Rigby also takes the time to understand your own unique goals in your consultation. After the consultation, we create an individual treatment approach for each of our patients and provide guidance every step of the way.
