Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Losing weight or managing it can be difficult. You might try a certain diet and exercise plan on your own — only to become frustrated with your results. 

Weight management with the help of a medical weight loss plan provided by Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC can help you achieve your weight loss goal and maintain it. 

Having a professional walk alongside you during your weight challenges offers:

  • Nutritional counseling and guidance
  • A diet that works for you
  • A workout plan that fits your lifestyle
  • Motivation

You can also rely on them to answer your questions or concerns as you navigate through your weight loss and maintenance journey.

Why do I need weight management?

If you’re obese or overweight, carrying too many pounds on your body can put you at risk for developing serious health conditions, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Certain cancers

Losing weight can also help alleviate mental conditions, like depression and anxiety. 

What are the benefits of weight management?

  • Medical supervision
  • Healthier joints
  • More energy
  • Nutrition education

How does weight management work?

The team at Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC takes a personal investment in your plan, progress, and success. The medical weight loss program involves regular checkups and office visits that include:

Your diet program

Your nutrition during your weight loss journey is key. Your provider customizes your diet, limits your calories, gives you a list of healthy food options, and offers tips on how to keep your hunger satisfied throughout the day.

Supplements and medications

Supplements and certain medications can enhance your weight loss, and they’re monitored closely if they’re part of your plan.


When it comes to learning what to eat, when to eat, and how to burn the most calories during exercise, you can lean on your coach for guidance.
