Weight Loss Q & A

What is a medical weight-loss program?

The medical weight-loss program offered at Seven Hills Medical Center is a physician-supervised, nonsurgical weight-loss plan that follows the guidelines set by the Center for Medical Weight Loss®, the largest successful MD weight-loss program in the United States.

Dr. Venkatesh received extensive training so he can provide the weight-loss program to you. He not only focuses on helping you lose your unwanted pounds, but also improving your overall health. Your weight-loss plan is designed specifically for you, taking into consideration your basal metabolic rate and underlying health conditions.

What are the components of a medical weight-loss program?

The medical weight-loss program offered at Seven Hills Medical Center is comprised of three phases:

Quick start

During the quick start phase of your weight-loss program, Dr. Venkatesh provides you with a low-calorie diet plan to follow, along with FDA-approved products to assist in your weight-loss efforts.

Transition

You continue to follow your low-calorie diet with the FDA-approved products when you enter the transition phase of the program. As you lose the weight, Dr. Venkatesh helps you incorporate some of your favorite healthy foods so you can learn how to eat healthy and maintain your weight loss.

Maintenance

Once you reach your weight-loss goal, Dr. Venkatesh continues to help you make healthy food choices so you keep the weight off. He also provides continued support when you hit roadblocks or experience setbacks.

In addition to your diet, Dr. Venkatesh provides tools to help you modify behavior and be more active throughout each phase of the weight-loss program. Exercise isn’t a mandatory part of the program, but Dr. Venkatesh encourages activity because people who engage in regular exercise tend to have an easier time maintaining their weight loss.

Can weight-loss medication help me?

You may benefit from weight-loss medication to help you on your weight-loss journey. Dr. Venkatesh offers FDA-approved weight-loss medication to help control your appetite. He monitors you closely as you lose weight while taking the medication.
