Weight Loss Q & A

Why am I not losing weight?

A major disconnect often exists between what we know we should do to lose weight and what we are actually doing. While “going on a diet” may seem like the right thing to do, the trick to losing weight and keeping it off is to make lifestyle changes that you can live with for the rest of your life. Skipping meals, doing juice cleanses, or relying on outdated or misguided information is unhealthy, and while they may provide fast results in the short term, you are more likely to regain the weight and then some when you resume your old habits.

What is involved in a medically supervised weight loss consultation?

During your initial consultation with Dr. Russell, you will be given a full medical evaluation. She will review your medical history and any medications you are taking. You will discuss your previous dieting efforts and personal goals. She will order a full laboratory panel, including thyroid function tests, blood glucose tests, and other screenings to ensure you are in good health. Your heart and lungs will be thoroughly evaluated, and your body fat percentage and body mass index will be measured. Your basal metabolic rate will be calculated, and with this information, Dr. Russell will be ready to customize a weight loss plan for your body. With a background in internal medicine and cosmetic treatments, each plan is unique to every patient to maximize effectiveness.

What will my weight loss plan entail?

After your initial examination, Dr. Russell will create a weight loss plan designed for your body’s needs. In addition to calorie recommendations, she will give you recommendations as to fat, protein, and carbohydrate intake as well as provide any prescription medications and supplements designed to balance your body’s hormone levels, boost metabolism and fight hunger. She will also devise an exercise and fitness plan that you can maintain for life. No endless miles on the treadmill — just common sense fitness that meets your budget and your lifestyle.
