Which Weight Loss Option is Best for Me?

Being overweight can have major health implications. In addition to the strain it can put on your joints, organs, and other physical components, it can affect your emotional state as well. Losing weight, though, can seem like an impossible task. What plan should you follow? How do you know if it’s working?

Losing weight on your own can be a struggle. But you don’t have to lose weight on your own.  Dr. Dennis Roberts in Indio, California, can evaluate you and put you on a plan that’s just right for you.

Weight loss options

There are a number of options Dr. Roberts can employ to help you lose weight.

Dr. Roberts can develop a self-guided plan that will show you what to eat and what exercises to perform. He’ll also discuss what you’ve tried in the past and what you may be doing now.

With a medical weight loss program, Dr. Roberts develops a plan and supervises you as you progress to your goal weight. He will create a full meal plan that will include what to eat, when to eat, and what your portion sizes should be. Your plan may also include supplements and meal replacements. He’ll also coach you on exercises and healthy habits.
