If your weight loss treatment plan was created by a certified doctor who assessed all your symptoms, health history, and preferences, you have nothing to worry about. Still, the risks may differ depending on the weight loss treatment. For example, even the best weight loss pills may cause side effects. Also, you should precisely stick to the recommendations set by your doctor. Neither make your diet stricter without approval, nor increase your activity level suddenly to prevent the development of eating disorders or physical issues.

Start with Weight Loss Assessment

Before you proceed with your treatment, you will go through one or several weight loss evaluations:

Answering a weight loss assessment questionnaire

You may be asked to fill out a weight loss assessment form covering your weight loss goals and preferences related to the treatment process.

Reviewing your past medical history

You will be asked about allergies, medicines, and supplements you take, and the details of your weight loss history. If medications are considered, you’ll be asked whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding, because weight loss pills have contraindications.

Evaluating physical
health

Some medical ailments (thyroid disorder, kidney problems, etc.) can cause weight gain. You might be recommended to take extra tests to understand if you have physical issues related to weight fluctuations.

Measuring BMI

YBMI calculation is one of the standard weight loss assessment tools. It is a body mass index that is determined based on your height and weight. Depending on the result, you will get a treatment plan or recommendations.

Analyzing your diet and activity level

Whether you get weight loss pills prescribed or not, a healthy diet and proper activity level are recommended. You will be asked about your diet, routines, and habits to help the doctor develop an effective strategy for you.

Examining mental health

Stress, insomnia, and depression may cause weight gain and should be treated along with the weight loss process. Eating disorders must be ruled out too as they require different treatments, not limited to weight loss itself.

Sudden weight loss can be a consequence of physical ailments. To identify the most probable cause, the next can be recommended:

  • A complete blood count
  • Thyroid panel
  • Tests on kidney and liver functioning
  • Tests on electrolytes
  • Inflammation tests
  • Blood sugar test

On the other hand, weight fluctuations can be caused by mental health problems. At MEDvidi, you can be assessed for depression, anxiety, stress, and other conditions.

Generally speaking, you can calculate your normal weight using one of the most common weight loss diagnostic tests — BMI calculation (body mass index). Normally a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy. Nevertheless, normal weight should be determined individually, considering not just one’s height but also age, the amount of fat and muscle mass in the body, and health specifics.

For adults, BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered to indicate a normal or healthy weight. A BMI of less than 18.5 means underweight while a BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 means overweight. BMI of 30.0 and higher is in the obese range.

What Can Be Included in Weight Loss Programs at MEDvidi
Psychotherapy or Counseling
  • Searching for the root causes of obesity or being overweight
  • Working on self-image and self-perception
  • Identifying your very best motivation
Prescription Management*
  • Getting suitable weight loss medicines prescribed
  • Adjusting treatment when needed
  • Regularly receiving prescription refills
Lifestyle Recommendations
  • Setting up your weight loss diet and a nutrition plan
  • Increasing daily activity levels in a healthy way
  • Establishing beneficial routines and learning weight loss tips
Focusing on specific foods is not the most effective approach to achieving weight loss. Instead, consider modifying general eating habits. What matters most for a weight loss diet is including more fiber and protein and regulating the calorie intake and fat intake. However, note that consuming fewer calories is not necessarily equal to eating less.
The best meal plan for weight loss for you can only be determined after a comprehensive evaluation. A diet will differ from one patient to another, depending on their health history, physical state, and other factors. General healthy nutrition includes whole grains, various protein foods, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. However, it will be modified for people with certain illnesses.

The most basic tips are the following:

  • Healthy diet and nutrition
  • Adequate hydration
  • Enough sleep
  • Regular physical activity (comfortable amount)
  • Consistency in your weight loss journey

In some cases, medications are required to attain clinically significant weight loss. Then, MEDvidi doctors can prescribe* suitable medications.

Lowering BMI includes consuming less saturated fats, regulating calorie intake, exercising, and being more active in daily life. Sometimes, weight loss medications are necessary too. In addition, pay attention to not just BMI but also your body composition—the amount of muscles and fat.

Weight Loss Therapy: What’s Involved?

Behavioral weight loss therapy

Intensive behavioral therapy for obesity focuses on changing irrational and unhealthy behavior patterns that lead to weight gain.

The therapy process includes:

  • Setting realistic weight loss goals
  • Working on thinking patterns to keep you motivated
  • Evaluating emotions to avoid overeating
  • Learning to conduct self-monitoring regularly

Behavioral therapy focuses on long-term results achieved step-by-step to ensure weight maintenance.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy for weight loss

CBT or cognitive-behavioral therapy can be used to manage the weight loss process.

Patients learn to:

  • Better identify their thoughts and feelings
  • Monitor their eating patterns and behaviors
  • Practice mindfulness and determine if there are things, emotions, or experiences they associate with food, which helps to stop overeating

In addition, CBT helps to improve self-image and identify primary goals of weight loss. Sometimes, those goals are not linked to weight and can be achieved in another way.

The best weight loss therapy also takes your mental state into consideration. You may be tested for depression, anxiety, and other conditions that often accompany weight gain.

Weight Loss Prescription Medications

Sometimes, strong will and self-control are not enough. Being overweight can lead to obesity, which is a metabolic disease and therefore requires medical treatment.

Those patients who meet certain requirements can get weight loss prescriptions online* at MEDvidi.

A patient can get weight loss pills if:

  • Their BMI is 30 or higher.
  • Their BMI is 27 or higher, and they have health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or type 2 diabetes.

You will also be told about all the pros and cons of the medication you get prescribed.

Advantages of Online Prescriptions

No long lines and waiting hours—everything is done from the comfort of your home.

Weight loss pills have different mechanisms of action, side effects, and other factors and must be chosen individually. Your doctor will take your health history and the medication’s contraindications and interactions before prescribing you such medications.

To receive a weight loss prescription*, one has to be diagnosed with obesity or as overweight by a certified doctor. Having a BMI higher than 30 (or higher than 27 and having related conditions) is a common requirement, along with the evaluation of your health history and determining the necessity of this type of medication.

Useful Materials

Obesity is a complex problem, covering the physical and emotional state. So, it is beneficial to dive deeper into the topic when you start treatment.
