Neither weight loss surgery nor medical weight loss is a quick and easy solution to lose weight. However, when you choose Iowa Weight Loss Specialists as your clinic for weight loss, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve long-lasting, healthy weight loss.
As we comprehensive, accredited weight loss center, we offer a wide variety of resources and tools to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Since every patient is unique, we utilize these tools to create entire customized weight loss plans for every patient.
Our advanced scales offer detailed feedback on a variety of helpful data points including body fat percentage, fat mass, muscle mass, and hydration status. Tracking your progress over time can be a great motivator to keep up with healthy lifestyle changes and determine which changes work best for you.
We use the indirect calorimeter, a simple and non-invasive breath test, to measure how many calories your body burns at rest each day. This weight loss tool allows our team to create a highly customized plan to help you achieve healthy weight loss and support long-term weight maintenance.
Medications for weight loss are effective weight loss aids that can help by decreasing appetite, decreasing food cravings, increasing satiety (fullness), and/or decreasing absorption. Our nurse practitioners will work with you to decide if weight loss medication is right for you and will review available treatment options based on your needs.
In addition to meeting regularly with a nurse practitioner, our patients also have access to a team of Registered Dietitians for nutrition guidance. There is often a lot of misleading information when it comes to healthy eating and diet plans for weight loss. Our weight loss clinic dietitians can help address your questions, provide meal planning tips, and identify opportunities for improvement.
Making healthy lifestyle changes is often easier said than done. At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we aim to provide you with the weight loss services, resources, accountability, and encouragement you need to succeed with long-term weight loss.
Our weight loss resources include a team approach that draws on the expertise of different providers who are dedicated to providing you with lifelong support, as well as support from other patients. As a patient, you’ll have access to our Connections Support Group and also our private Facebook support group. The combination of peer weight loss support groups and professional weight loss programs can make a powerful impact on long-term success.
From helping you understand your options for non-surgical weight loss to ongoing weight loss education and resources, we strive to be more than just a center for weight loss. Iowa Weight Loss Specialists is here to support you with personalized, compassionate care throughout your entire medical weight management journey.
