Weight Loss Q&A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Weight loss is difficult, as no single method works for everybody. But there are many benefits associated with reaching an ideal weight. 

Medically supervised weight loss at Thriverock Active Healthcare uses nutrition education, custom meal plans, dietary supplements, hormone replacement therapy, or other natural methods to make your weight loss journey successful.

What are the benefits of choosing medically supervised weight loss?

If you’re overweight, medical weight loss with Dr. Empey and his compassionate staff offers numerous benefits, including: 

  • Self-confidence
  • More energy
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced cholesterol
  • Lower blood sugar
  • Reduced risk of diabetes and other diseases
  • Improved disease management
  • Less stress on your joints
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Reduced physical and mental fatigue
  • Less ongoing pain
  • Medical supervision
  • Safe, effective, long-lasting results

Dr. Empey tailors each nutrition, fitness, and weight-loss program based on your food preferences and medical history. This increases your chance of long-term success.

Which weight loss program is best for me?

Dr. Empey weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), reviews your medical history, and discusses your lifestyle habits — especially your usual dietary intake. He completes a physical exam and offers body composition analysis, lab work to check hormones and nutrient levels, DNA and telomere testing, and health screenings to detect underlying diseases.

He personalizes a weight loss plan best suited for your lifestyle and needs, including nutrition plans, customized menus, dietary supplements, fitness programs, and more. You might need bioidentical hormone replacement, weight loss medicines, or treatment for chronic disease.

It’s important to follow your program exactly as directed by Dr. Empey to ensure the best results. Follow up with him periodically and call the Thriverock Active Healthcare office whenever you have questions about your program. Dr. Empey can alter your weight loss plan as you begin to move toward a healthier weight.

When will I reach my goal weight?

Many lose about 1-5 pounds per week following medically supervised weight loss programs. The amount of weight you’ll lose weekly depends on various factors, including your initial weight and how closely you follow your customized weight loss plan.

Dr. Empey and his staff work with you on an ongoing basis to ensure you reach your target weight and maintain it.
