What Is Weight Loss Treatment?

You may have excellent genes, or you may eat properly and exercise regularly. But for many people, losing weight and keeping it off is very difficult to accomplish! People can gain weight for various reasons, and most of the time, it isn't just because they overeat or don't exercise enough. To help you transform your body, Atlanta Medical Institute (AMI) proudly offers several advanced weight loss programs. We strive to help you attain your weight loss goals, keep the weight off, and reduce problems caused by weight-related diseases. Our team of highly trained physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and weight loss specialists in Atlanta, GA, also understand that one plan does not fit everybody's lifestyle or preferences. We design tailored treatment plans that specifically meet your needs and address chronic diseases or conditions that hinder your ability to lose weight. To help transform your body, Atlanta Medical Institute offers:

  • FDA-approved weight loss medication

Similar to having high blood pressure or asthma, weight gain deserves the same kind of medical attention. Our compassionate and dedicated team members will listen, provide support, and guide you through your weight loss journey.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

With Atlanta Medical Institute’s Physician Supervised Weight Loss Program, your health and well-being are more than just a number on a scale. At our clinic, your health and weight are more completely assessed, and your progress is tracked in more ways than simply how many pounds you may lose. There are no group sessions, and each client is assessed and given an individually tailored program to suit their needs. We will discuss your concerns and offer motivation in your weekly educational consultations. As there are no lock-in contracts and you pay as you go, your individual program has the flexibility to be changed if and when needed. Our clinic does not promote only one method or program of weight loss. We do not presume that one weight loss method will be suitable for everyone. We offer a range of options, including dietary meal replacements, detoxification, dietary guidance, medication support, and psychological support. Through comprehensive assessment and discussion with our clients, we aim to provide a more personalized approach to medical weight loss. Being a medical weight loss center gives us the ability to monitor high-risk clients who may suffer from heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. All of our comprehensive programs are medically supervised and based on bariatric medicine, the science of weight loss.

During your initial visit, you will complete a questionnaire that asks about current and past health and living habits. Next, you will meet with one of our highly trained weight loss doctors to review your health history, perform testing, (which includes a physical), and consult with you about your health and well-being goals. If it is likely that you could benefit from treatment, you will undergo saliva, urine, and/or blood sampling. This testing will tell if your blood chemistry is accelerating the process of weight gain and if there are other factors about which our doctors need to be aware. We will suggest an action plan, and your treatment will begin immediately. To ensure your treatment is producing the desired results, your doctor will schedule regular follow-up visits with you. The correct amount of medications are determined based on laboratory results, individual goals, the severity of symptoms, age, gender, and body size. Your customized treatment is completely supervised by our doctors to ensure that everything is done properly, safely, and successfully.

What Are Hormone Replacement Therapy and BHRT?

As men and women age, their hormone production starts to decline. This decrease in hormones can cause imbalances and negative side effects, which may contribute to weight gain.

At AMI, we use both hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to address the unique needs of individuals. Safe and effective, both HRT and BHRT can work well for some patients. These weight loss programs can reduce, slow, and prevent weight gain or negative side effects. BHRT is a natural hormonal therapy that uses plant-derived hormones identical in chemical and molecular structure to ones produced by the human body.

Both HRT and BHRT should always be administered by a physician who is skilled in hormone replacement therapy. If you would like to learn more, please schedule a consultation with one of our skilled weight loss specialists.

What Is hCG Weight Loss?

hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that naturally occurs in both men and women. Using hCG as a weight loss aid (along with restricted caloric intake) dates back to the 1950s. Discovered by Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons, he figured out how to use the hCG hormone to target the nutrients in fat cells and convert their content. This process causes the fat cells to shrink to a smaller size. To help patients kick-start their weight loss habits, we offer hCG diet plans.

Typically, hCG treatments require about 4 – 8 weeks. Participants follow a strict diet that contains almost no fat and reduce calories to 800 a day. This amount of calories may seem very small, but the natural hormone is so powerful that it dramatically reduces the appetite. Most participants adjust quickly to the new calorie restriction and learn to focus on proper foods for a healthy diet. Often, many patients can lose a pound a day without any feelings of weakness or hunger! During your treatment, you will need to self-administer an intramuscular injection of hCG or use pellets that dissolve under the tongue each day.

After completing your hCG weight loss program, you can transition to a healthy lifestyle with proper eating habits and exercise. Because the dramatic weight loss results happen quickly, participants tend to feel motivated and determined to continue their weight loss journey and new healthy lifestyle choices. To help you stay on track, we encourage you to learn more about our lifestyle coaches, stress reduction treatments, nutrition programs, and fitness plans.

HOW Can I Lose WEIGHT WITH FITNESS AND NUTRITION COUNSELING?

We’re all different and from a nutritional standpoint. This noticeable difference is called biochemical individuality. Biochemical individuality means that no single exercise or diet plan is right for everyone. For example, one person may do well with a higher carbohydrate diet while others may thrive on Zone-type meals, which incorporate more protein and fat. Additionally, it may work best for some patients to kick-start their weight loss program with a raw food diet. This can leave them more energized and clear-headed.
At AMI, our goal isn’t to impose a belief system or have you follow a particular diet or exercise plan; instead, we strive to teach you the basics of healthy nutrition and provide a personalized exercise program. When combined, it can help you make the right choices each day and help with weight loss. To help determine what type of foods and exercises may work best for you, AMI uses highly trained specialists that focus on the science of exercise and nutrition. Our professionals help identify which foods work best for your unique metabolism and design exercise programs to tone the body. After figuring out your specific metabolic needs, we can apply the basic principles of good nutrition and exercise. A personalized weight loss plan will help you maintain proper weight, feel energized, and improve your overall health and quality of life!

What Is Lifestyle Coaching?

At AMI, our professional Atlanta weight loss specialists design weight loss programs, provide thorough education, offer motivational strategies, and give guidance throughout your weight loss transformation. The goal of our programs is to offer a simple, effective, and proactive plan that anyone can implement with ease and minimal time commitments. During your consultation, we design an action plan that focuses on your lifestyle choices and provides the best results for you. We can create your program to address any current medical conditions or concerns, and we carefully measure and track your results throughout the process. This helps us adjust your plan as needed.

What is Nutritional Counseling?

At Atlanta Medical Institute, our team of skilled experts can provide nutritional counseling to guide your weight loss journey. During your counseling appointments, we will discuss your lifestyle habits, sleep patterns, any stomach issues, energy levels, and stress levels to identify any areas of concern. We may also ask you to create a food journal of your current diet. Once all these areas have been discussed, we can talk with you about changing your habits, what foods to avoid, and how to achieve your weight loss goals.
