Tools For Weight Loss Success

A weight loss provider consults with an Iowa Weight Loss Specialists patient.Losing weight isn’t a quick or simple process, whether through weight loss surgery or medical weight loss. Yet, by selecting Iowa Weight Loss Specialists as your clinic for weight loss, we commit to supporting you in healthy weight loss with the best weight loss medications available, the most specialized counseling, and perhaps most importantly, the best possible care for you as a patient.

Being a fully accredited weight loss center, we provide an array of resources and tools to assist you in reaching your weight loss goals. We recognize that each and every patient is unique, so we use these tools to craft customized weight loss plans for every individual. We consider your entire medical history and create a sustainable weight loss plan that may include an appetite suppressant or an FDA-approved weight loss medication. Let us join you on your weight loss journey!

Body Composition Analysis

Our state-of-the-art scales provide in-depth insights into several valuable data points, such as body fat percentage, fat mass, muscle mass, and hydration status. Monitoring your advancements over time serves as a powerful motivator, encouraging the regularly scheduled use of prescription weight loss medication and the continuation of healthy lifestyle changes and helping identify the most effective adjustments for you.

Metabolic Testing

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 for analyzing calorie intake allows our team to create a highly customized plan to decide whether to recommend safe weight loss medication to help you achieve healthy weight loss and support your long-term weight management journey.

Weight Loss Medication

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 weight loss providers will work with you to decide if weight loss medication is right for you and will review available prescription weight loss drug treatment options based on your needs.

Nutrition Education & Guidance

In addition to considering medications to lose weight and meeting regularly with a weight loss provider, our patients also have access to a team of Registered Dietitians for nutrition guidance to promote weight loss while remaining healthy. There is often 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.

Supportive Bariatric Team & Community

Making healthy lifestyle changes is often easier said than done. At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we aim to provide you with weight loss services to determine if there is a need for prescription weight loss pills, a full range of resources, accountability, and encouragement you need to succeed with long-term weight loss. It is important to us that you reach your goals.

Our weight loss resources utilize a team approach that draws on the expertise of different specialists 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.
