CMWLFAQS How does medical weight loss differ from other weight loss programs? Medical weight loss programs differ significantly from commercial programs. One major difference is the way in which medical weight loss programs rely on scientific and physiological data points to tailor a weight loss program to your body’s specific needs. Data points are acquired via a complex body composition analysis scale on a regular (often weekly) basis so that your weight loss plan can be adjusted as your body’s physiology changes. In addition to their highly personalized nature of medical weight loss plans, providers at the Princeton Center for Medical Weight Loss have tools to help you lose weight that are not typically available in a non-medical setting. Safe low-calorie diets, and FDA- approved appetite suppressants are just 2 of the many tools available to assist with medically-directed weight loss. Who Can Medical Weight Loss Benefit? Because medical weight loss is scientifically-based, and relies on physiological data-sets, it is customized to every individual’s weight loss needs. As a consequence, medical weight loss can help any individual with his or her specific weight loss needs. Some patients will seek to lose 100 pounds while others will just need to get rid of those final few pounds. Medical weight loss can use your body’s own information to help you achieve those goals in a safe and lasting fashion. Can the Primary Care doctor also be my weight loss doctor? Your medical needs are addressed through your primary care which includes addressing your personal health condition. The weight loss program is an optional program that you can enroll if you need a physician supervised program to manage your weight loss needs. Please note your success in weight loss is dependent on your motivation and discipline Dr. Kumar is my primary care doctor. Can I visit the office to combining my health care needs and weight loss visit? You need to separate your sick physicals from weight loss visit Is the program supervised by the doctor? Yes.
