Anyone who needs to lose weight can benefit from a medical weight loss program. Dr. Everett offers the medical treatment, nutrition advice, meal replacements, and behavioral tools necessary to help you reach your weight loss goal. Losing weight isn’t just for aesthetics. It’s also important for preventing chronic health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and arthritis. The program at Everett Medical uses science-backed weight loss methods to ensure success while taking care of all your health needs.
Each person's weight loss journey is different, so your program will be tailored to your personal needs. Dr. Everett will evaluate your overall health, then talk with you about your previous weight loss efforts, and work together to create a weight management plan. In addition to setting calorie goals and planning a diet, the doctor may recommend options such as:
Prescription appetite suppressants: When prescription medications are used together with a controlled diet, they can help patients lose 5-10% of their total weight. They’re not intended for long-term use, but they can make a significant difference.
Natural supplements: Dr. Everett may recommend natural supplements that have been scientifically proven to support weight loss.
Meal replacement diets: Everett Medical carries Optifast products and offers the entire medically-monitored weight loss program, including the Optifast teens program. When used as a meal replacement diet, Optifast makes it easier to control your caloric intake, which is the key to losing weight.
hCG diet: Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone normally produced during pregnancy. For weight loss purposes, it can be administered as an injection and may help you lose weight when used together with a low-calorie diet.
Dr. Everett understands that it’s quite difficult to face the challenges of weight loss. At the very least, losing weight requires a change in eating habits and might even demand a lifestyle overhaul. The doctor will support you through all of these steps. Dr. Everett has extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), another tool she successfully uses with many patients. CBT is a structured therapy that helps you monitor eating behavior and become aware of the emotional and behavioral habits that lead to overeating.
