What Is Medical Weight Loss?

With overweight and obesity rates climbing at epidemic proportions, many people seek advice on how to lose weight the fastest way possible. With thousands of fad diets on the market, many people who are overweight or obese have tried one or more at some point in their lives. Many of these plans are either too strict, unbalanced, or just plain unhealthy, leading to the worsening of existing medical conditions, such as asthma, high cholesterol, or hypertension, to name a few. And some people are so desperate that they turn to ineffective or even illegal drugs to reach their weight loss goals without considering the long-term effects.

With medically supervised weight loss, you get the best of both worlds – safety and support. At Center for Healthy Weight, our medical team of Dr. Ana Morales and Dr. Jan Knight Bateman is passionate about weight loss and maintenance but ONLY in the most healthy and effective way.

Aside from their outstanding reputation within the community of Friendswood, Texas, and surrounding cities, both of our weight loss doctors are knowledgeable in  the psychology, behavior, nutrition, metabolism, lifestyle, medical history, and other factors that go into formulating an individualized medical weight loss plan.
