Weight Loss Q & A
What is weight loss?
For some people, maintaining a healthy weight comes easily. Many other people may find themselves chronically overweight or obese, which can lead to health problems down the road. Weight loss refers to the process of intentionally losing this excess weight.
While there are many methods for weight loss, not all are created equal. It is important to find a healthy and effective weight loss plan to ensure that you lose the weight that you need and are successful at maintaining your new, healthy weight. Dr. Goff and his medical team have years of experience helping patients get the results that they look for healthily and compassionately, leading to better and more consistent weight loss.
Why seek medical help for weight loss?
Many people seek to lose weight on their own, researching their diet themselves or creating their own exercise plan. While this can be effective for some people, others experience difficulties with this method. You may have trouble losing weight, or you may lose weight and then gain it back quickly.
With a medically supervised weight loss plan, you can lose weight and keep it off in a healthy manner. Dr. Goff and his team have extensive experience guiding their patients throughout their weight loss journey in a compassionate yet directed manner. With their help, not only will you look and feel great, but weight loss can also help you avoid serious medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and heart attack.
