Your weight loss journey is personal—and it’s an important decision. Weight loss can improve your health and change your life for the better.  We know losing weight can be difficult, and finding a healthy method can be confusing. It is a complex process that involves making changes to your lifestyle and eating habits to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The key to successful weight loss management is to establish a sustainable plan that you can maintain over the long term.  Our providers at Virtual Consult MD can help evaluate your needs and develop a program to help with long-term success in your journey.


There are many weight loss management options available, ranging from lifestyle changes to medical interventions. The most appropriate option for you will depend on your individual needs, preferences, and health status. Here are some common weight loss management options our providers can offer:


1. Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle changes are the first line of defense against obesity and overweight. This includes eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, getting enough sleep, and managing stress. These changes can be challenging to make and require discipline and consistency, but they are the most sustainable and effective way to lose weight.


2. Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy is a form of counseling that aims to help people change their behaviors related to food, physical activity, and other lifestyle factors. It focuses on identifying and modifying unhealthy habits and developing healthier ones. This can be done individually or in a group setting.


3. Prescription Medications

Prescription medications are available for weight loss management. These medications work by suppressing appetite, increasing metabolism, or blocking the absorption of fat. They are typically used in conjunction with lifestyle changes and are intended for people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher.


The pursuit of safe and efficient weight loss solutions remains ongoing, with continuous advancements in medical science. Among the latest breakthroughs is semaglutide, an anti-obesity medication that continues to make significant waves well beyond its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2021.

Originally developed as a treatment for diabetes, semaglutide has emerged as a pivotal player in the realm of weight management. It hasbeen shown to suppress appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and reduce food cravings. These effects can lead to a reduction in caloric intake and subsequent weight loss.

In clinical trials, semaglutides has been found to help people with type 2 diabetes lose an average of 4-5% of their body weight over the course of 26-52 weeks. This weight loss can lead to improvements in blood sugar control, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

Meet with one of our Providers at Virtual Consult MD for evaluation to see if semuglutides are right for you.
