Aesthetique Skin & Body's Weight Loss Program: Achieve Your Health and Wellness Goals

At Aesthetique Skin & Body your weight loss program is developed by a medical doctor. It’s important to note that each individuals weight loss journey is tailored to their needs and health conditions. Here are some general components considered in the development of our weight loss programs: 

  • Comprehensive Health Assessment: The GP will conduct a thorough medical evaluation, including medical history, physical examination, and relevant blood tests, to identify any underlying health issues that might impact weight loss efforts. 
  • Goal Setting: The GP and the patient will set realistic and achievable weight loss goals based on the patient’s weight, health status, and lifestyle factors. 
  • Caloric Intake and Diet: The GP may provide guidance on creating a balanced and calorie-controlled diet plan that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods, emphasizing fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats. They may also advise reducing or avoiding sugary and high-calorie processed foods. 
  • Portion Control: Teaching portion control can be crucial in managing calorie intake and promoting weight loss. 
  • Regular Exercise: The GP may recommend incorporating regular physical activity into the patient’s routine, tailored to their fitness level and preferences. Exercise helps burn calories, improve fitness, and support overall well-being. 
  • Behavior Modification: Behavioral strategies, such as setting up a food diary, identifying emotional triggers for overeating, and practicing mindful eating, can help patients develop healthier habits and maintain long-term weight loss. 
  • Support and Monitoring: Regular follow-up appointments with the GP can provide ongoing support, monitor progress, and make necessary adjustments to the weight loss plan as needed. 
  • Addressing Underlying Issues: The GP should address any psychological, emotional, or medical factors that might contribute to weight gain or hinder weight loss. 
  • Medications or Supplements: In some cases, the GP might consider prescription medications or supplements to aid in weight loss. These should be used only when appropriate and in conjunction with lifestyle changes. 
  • Referral to Specialists: For patients with complex medical conditions or those who may benefit from specialized weight loss programs, the GP might consider referring them to registered dietitians, nutritionists, or weight management specialists. 

 Remember that weight loss should be gradual and sustainable, and extreme diets or rapid weight loss programs can be harmful to health. A focus on overall lifestyle changes, long-term habits, and patient well-being is essential for successful weight management.
