When a person hears the term medical weight loss, they either think about losing weight via surgery or they think about weight loss that comes from taking prescription pills. And while those two options might work for some, this is not what we mean by medical weight loss.
Medical weight loss offers non-surgical and non-drug-related techniques for losing weight. The term medical is included in the description because the entire weight loss procedure is overseen and monitored by medical professionals. Medical weight loss is designed to teach people how to live in a way that will help them maintain a healthy weight for the rest of their life. To this end, much of medical weight loss revolves around identifying and treating dangerous behaviors or negative patterns that cause a person to put on weight and to keep the weight off for the long-haul.
