Weight Loss Q & A

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Losing weight offers a number of benefits that go well beyond making you look better at your next class reunion. Losing as little as 10% of your current body weight can:

  • Improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Reduce your risk of developing diabetes
  • Lower blood sugar if you have diabetes
  • Help you get a better night rest
  • Decrease body aches and pains

Weight loss also increases your self-esteem and confidence, which can improve your entire perspective on life.

What is the best way to lose weight?

There’s no one best way to lose weight. However, a good weight-loss plan focuses on creating a negative calorie balance so you’re eating fewer calories than your body burns. Dr. Madapati works with you and teaches you how to eat to lose weight.

If you’re struggling, she may recommend medication to jumpstart your weight loss and help you stay on track.

Do I need to eat special food?

You don’t need to eat special food to lose weight. In fact, eating a healthy, balanced diet while you lose weight may make keeping it off a lot easier. Dr. Madapati works with you to develop a diet plan that suits your lifestyle and food preferences. But for good nutrition and health, she recommends a variety of foods from all the food groups.

Do I need medication to help with weight loss?

If you’re struggling to lose and it’s affecting your health, Dr. Madapati may prescribe medication for a little extra help. These medications work by either helping you feel full faster or preventing your body from absorbing fat so you get fewer calories.

Some common weight-loss medications include:

  • Orlistat
  • Phentermine-topiramate
  • Liraglutide
  • Lorcaserin

How long you take the medication may depend on whether it’s helping you lose the weight or not. If it’s working, Dr. Madapati may recommend the weight-loss medication be a regular part of your healthcare routine. If you haven’t lost at least 5% of your body weight after 12 weeks of taking the medication, Dr. Madapati may explore other options to help you reach your goal weight.
