Weight Loss Medications - Weight Loss Clinic LA

If you want to shed those pesky unwanted pounds, weight loss medications could be a great tool for that. However, you will still need to have a healthy diet (no junk food) and a healthy lifestyle (move more).

Now, you may ask if a healthy diet and lifestyle are the main thing for weight loss, why would I need these medications?

Well, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to that. Some take the medications to break the weight loss plateau, while some have medical conditions that make it difficult for them to lose weight easily. Therefore, these medications can work wonders for them.

If you want to know more about these weight loss medications and how they can help you shed some extra pounds, visit our page at Weight Loss Clinic LA. Talk to us, and we will find the right program and medications for you if everything else fails.

What are weight loss medications?

Weight loss medications are prescribed drugs that can assist individuals in managing their weight. They are prescribed by a health care provider and are not available over the counter.

The medications are usually recommended for adults who have serious health issues due to excess weight.

How do weight loss medications work?

Appetite Suppression

Many weight loss drugs help by reducing appetite. They make you feel fuller, leading to a lower calorie intake. By curbing hunger, these medications encourage you to eat less and maintain a calorie deficit.

Reducing Nutrient Absorption

Some weight loss drugs limit the absorption of nutrients, particularly fats. By interfering with fat absorption, they reduce the number of calories your body takes in from food.

Increasing Fat Burning

Certain medications enhance fat burning, thereby increasing the number of calories burned. This effect contributes to weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

Who is eligible for weight loss medications?

Generally, individuals who meet specific criteria may be considered:

Body Mass Index (BMI):

  • People with a BMI greater than 30 are typically eligible. This indicates obesity.
  • Those with a BMI greater than 27 may also qualify if they have related health conditions (such as diabetes or high blood pressure).
  •  

Health Conditions:

  • Individuals who face serious health risks due to excess weight may be eligible.
  • Weight loss medications are often recommended for adults with obesity-related health issues.
