What is Medical Weight Loss?

There are countless weight loss programs and products that claim to be the best, fastest, and easiest way to lose weight, but in the end, they rarely deliver on their promises. At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we believe in an evidence-based and patient-centered approach. Our accredited weight loss center utilizes tools that have been shown to be most effective for weight loss and focuses on finding the best weight loss program for you.

If surgical weight loss is not the right fit for you, we offer safe and effective nonsurgical weight loss services, including medicine for weight loss. As a medical weight management clinic, our expert weight loss doctors and support team can find the best options for medical weight loss for you. From weight loss medications to support groups and behavioral health support, we’re here for you every step of the way.

Learn more about what to expect with a medical weight management program at an established clinic for weight loss.

Medical Weight Loss Is:

  • Regular appointments with a Nurse Practitioner who will review your medical history, address your challenges and barriers, work with you to create a personalized plan to lose weight, help determine the best weight loss medication for you, and monitor your progress over time.
  • Nutrition assessment and education with a Registered Dietitian who will work with your individual dietary preferences to create a sustainable approach to eating for healthy weight loss.
  • Access to evidence-based weight loss tools including prescription weight loss medications, an advanced scale that analyzes your body composition, and metabolic testing.
  • Additional guidance from other weight loss clinic specialists (including mental health providers).

Medical Weight Loss Is NOT:

  • A one-size-fits-all approach that ignores your personal goals and obstacles.
  • Expensive and ineffective weight loss supplements or diet pills.
  • Unsustainable meal replacement plans or VLCD’s (very low-calorie diets) that leave you feeling hungry.
  • Unrealistic “quick fix” promises to shed pounds in a very short amount of time.

As an accredited center for weight loss, Iowa Weight Loss Specialists is here to help you find the right weight loss plan for your unique needs. Whether it’s weight loss medicine through our medical weight loss program or Gastric Sleeve surgery with our expert bariatric surgeon, let us help you make your weight loss goals a reality!
