What is weight loss nutrition?

Good nutrition includes the foods, drinks, and supplements you consume to stay healthy and help your body function at its best. The Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness team offers weight loss and weight maintenance nutrition to reduce the risk of developing lifelong chronic diseases.

What does superior nutrition consist of?

Exceptional nutrition involves following a well-balanced diet that includes: 

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Nutritious protein foods
  • Dairy foods or calcium-rich alternatives
  • Heart-healthy fats
  • Dietary supplements
  • Meal replacements when necessary

Proper nutrition can help you lose weight, maintain healthier weights, have more energy, and minimize the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.

Is weight loss nutrition right for me?

Anyone with poor dietary habits can benefit from medical nutrition services. To develop a weight management nutrition plan, your provider at Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness first checks your vital signs, weighs you, assesses your body mass index (BMI) and composition, and completes a physical exam. 

They may also recommend you undergo blood tests to screen for hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and chronic disease risk factors. Before personalizing your nutrition plan, they may ask questions about your current nutrition and exercise regimen, or other lifestyle habits and food preferences as well.

What happens during nutrition education visits?

The Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness team discusses your weight loss nutrition plan with you, which may consist of:

  • Custom meal plans based on calories
  • Weight management menus based on specific foods
  • Dietary supplements
  • Exercise prescriptions
  • Weight management medications (if necessary)
  • Hormone therapy
  • Life coaching
  • Diabetes education

If you’re a candidate for bariatric weight loss surgery, the team at Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness also prepare you for surgery and follow-up with you afterward to ensure you meet your nutritional needs and recover properly. 

How often do I meet with my Provider? 

You meet with a Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness provider every 2 weeks to assure the best accountability as you work towards better health, wellness, and nutritional goals. They can see you in-person, or via telemedicine if you’d rather stay in the comfort of your home, car, or office.
