Weight Loss Program Specialist

Why do some people have a hard time with weight loss?

Weight loss can be a difficult thing to do successfully. There are a myriad of diets and lifestyle changes out there, all of which work to some degree. However, most programs are not a “one size fits all” and have a high degree of failure. That is why Dr. John approaches weight loss on an individual basis, custom tailoring a plan that would work for the individual.

Are medications prescribed to assist with weight loss?

Dr. John uses a variety of methods to help you reach your weight loss goals, including medications. If a drug is used, Dr. John monitors you closely for progress and side effects.

There are also other options besides prescription medication that may be of help. Again, Dr. John will look at all options to determine what would work best for you.

What other tools are available to assist with weight loss?

Dr. John knows that weight loss isn’t a one-size-fits-all undertaking, and so he works with you to identify the best course of action to help you achieve your weight goals.

He offers:

  • Individualized nutrition and exercise plans
  • Behavior modification counseling
  • Support and encouragement

Dr. John is also aware of medical conditions that affect weight loss, including food allergies, and offers testing to see if these factors are affecting your health and weight. He also offers testing and treatment for leaky gut syndrome.
