Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

In 2013, the American Medical Association recognized obesity as a disease that requires attentive and comprehensive medical management like any other disease. Dedicated to helping her patients live long, healthy, and happy lives, Dr. Carson offers a medical weight loss program to help patients lose weight and improve health. 

Unlike commercial diets, the medical weight loss program at Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center is designed specifically for you, taking into consideration your health needs, weight loss goals, and the various obstacles that hinder your weight loss efforts. 

What can I expect during medical weight loss?

Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center utilizes the LeanMD® medically supervised weight loss program to help you lose the weight. This comprehensive physician-run program includes:

  • Nutrition plans
  • Ongoing medical supervision
  • Lifestyle coaching 
  • Personalized exercise program
  • Mindfulness techniques

Dr. Carson personally designs your medical weight loss plan, including your diet and exercise program. She then monitors your progress and adjusts your plan as needed as you lose the weight.

The weight loss mentors at Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center provide guidance and support you need to stay on track to help you create new, healthy habits that lead to long-term weight loss. 

Do I need to eat special foods?

The medical weight loss program at Uniquely Fit Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center includes real food. The medical weight loss specialists provide personalized nutrition plans based on your unique metabolic needs, weight loss goals, and food preferences. 

Dr. Carson and the weight loss mentors also educate you about food and nutrition and how what you eat affects your health and your weight. Once you understand the basics of good nutrition and incorporate the nutrient-rich foods that boost energy and improve health, the pounds melt away effortlessly. 

What other tools can help me lose weight?

Dr. Carson knows no single weight loss plan works for all, and some people struggle for various reasons. To support your weight loss efforts, she may incorporate nutrition supplements or vitamin B12 injections into your weight loss plan. Vitamin B12 may give you a boost of energy and accelerate fat-burning.

Dr. Carson also offers FDA-approved prescription medications to help control appetite and improve your weight loss success.
