How We Can Help You Lose Weight

How many summers in a row have you resolved to lose weight? Many Americans would like to lose weight for the medical and health benefits as well as for appearance-related reasons.

However, when you attempt to meet weight loss goals on your own, you may fall prey to fad diets or lose track of your good intentions when things get stressful. And it can be challenging to understand your body’s unique dietary and exercise needs.

Instead of trying the same unsuccessful tricks for another season, get in touch with the medical weight loss management and support experts at Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic. Our family medicine practice has convenient locations in Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California.

Obesity medicine specialist and registered dietitian Dr. Angelina Neria and the rest of the Living Water Clinic team can help you attain lasting and healthy weight loss this summer. Here’s what you need to know about medically supervised weight loss and weight management.

Getting started with healthy weight loss

To learn more about your unique body chemistry and dietary needs, Dr. Neria starts your weight loss journey with a thorough physical examination.

If you have a hormone imbalance or other chronic medical condition, it may be difficult for you to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Treating these problems helps you start your weight loss effort on an even footing. Some patients also benefit from medications to curb appetite or limit fat absorption, although not all people are good candidates for these options.

Dr. Neria develops a customized diet plan that you can stick to and recommends an exercise plan you can manage, taking all of your nutritional and physical needs into account. Moderate lifestyle changes, maintained over the long term, are key to healthy, permanent weight loss.

Staying on track to meet your weight and health goals

The hormones and other biochemicals in stored excess fat can cause inflammation and create lasting damage to your metabolism. Weight loss can help with many medical and health problems, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, and Type 2 diabetes.

Losing just 5%-10% of your body weight provides lasting health benefits. For long-term health, it’s best to lose weight slowly and steadily, instead of yo-yoing between sudden weight drops, plateaus, and regaining weight.

Having a doctor as a partner in your weight loss plan keeps you on the path to success. Dr. Neria works with you if you need to adjust your weight management plan or cope with new stressors or setbacks.

The support you need to make weight loss a reality

With Dr. Neria’s supervision and ongoing support, you can get your weight under control and complete your weight loss journey.
