Our Weight Management Philosophy
Some weight loss programs focus on diet and exercise only. While these are most certainly the cornerstones of weight management, there is a large failure to address appetite, lifestyle and continued multi-factorial influences that cause weight gain. In the medical community, we are slowly starting to realize that a large part of weight gain is linked to previously unknown physiologic and genetic factors. Just as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease are linked to genetic pre-cursors, so too are weight problems and obesity. We must stop treating obesity as a failure to have will-power, but rather as a disease process just like that of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. In the case of Physician’s Plan One to One Weight Loss & Wellness, our physicians are specially trained in bariatric medicine, obesity and weight management.
