We see all over the news that the FDA occasionally approves new medications for weight loss. These medications help you feel less hungry, get full faster, and boost your metabolism. What these medications don’t advertise? They work only when combined with an exercise program and a healthy, reduced calorie diet.
All of these medications require the patient to participate in some kind of lifestyle modification to achieve the desired positive results. Lifestyle modification includes physical activity, a reduced calorie diet, and consistency. Successful medicated weight programs need frequent motivational counseling as well as support in and out of the home.
Here at Rochester Medical Weight Loss, we focus very heavily on lifestyle modification and education. We teach our patients how to regain control of their lifestyles, eat healthier meals, portion their foods, increase their physical activity, and maximize their opportunities for a lifetime of success! After all, our programs are all about quick results and long term success!
