Weight Loss Q&A


What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of extra weight takes an enormous toll on virtually all of the organs and systems in your body. Some of the health risks associated with being overweight or obese include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Depression and anxiety

These are just some of the health risks that increase if you are overweight or obese. Finding a science-based weight loss program that works for you is absolutely critical for overall health and wellness. 

How is medically supervised weight loss different?

You’ve probably tried a number of diet and exercise plans over the years. You may have even achieved success, only to find the pounds quickly returning after you go off the program. 

That’s because many weight loss programs require adherence to a strict set of foods or extreme exercise regimens. These fad diets and programs are nearly impossible to sustain, and as soon as you resume your old habits, the weight will swiftly return. 

Medically supervised weight loss takes a different approach. The process begins with a comprehensive health assessment that includes blood work to learn more about how your body is functioning. This gives Dr. Bryant the details he needs to create a customized plan that works for you. 

You’ll also have the support of the Balance Wellness Center team as you navigate your weight loss journey. Having a trusted team of professionals to turn to if you have questions or concerns is essential, and also offers peace of mind. 

What specific weight loss tools are available?

Your weight loss program is designed to meet your needs, and your plan may change as your needs change. Some of the tools that will help you move closer to your ideal weight include:

  • Nutritional supplements
  • Personalized metabolic meal plans
  • Fat-burning lipotropic injections
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Long-acting protein shakes
  • Prescription appetite suppressants
  • Ongoing weight loss counseling

At every step, you’ll have professional guidance and support. Periodic health assessments ensure that your body is adapting properly as you lose weight, and your program can be augmented along the way.

The process begins with your personalized consultation. Call the office today to set up a visit, or try the easy online booking tool.
