What are the benefits of prescription medications for weight loss?
When you combine prescription weight-loss medications with a healthy lifestyle and behavioral changes, you can potentially lose more weight or get a jumpstart on your weight-loss goals. On average, people who take medications as part of a complete weight-loss program lose 3-9% more of their starting body weight than those who only make dietary and lifestyle changes.
Medications alone won’t help you lose weight and keep it off, but they are a valuable tool that provides the boost you need to adopt lifestyle changes and improve your overall health.
Am I a good candidate for a medical weight-loss program?
If you are significantly overweight or have a body mass index (BMI) that’s higher than average for your height and weight, you may be an ideal candidate for a medically supervised weight-loss program. Additionally, if you struggle to lose weight on your own or need help adopting a healthier nutrition plan, the team at Beth and Howard Braver, MD, assesses your overall health to see how you can benefit from a weight-loss program.
