How Your Provider Can Help Create the Right Nutritional Plan For Your Weight Loss

Are you trying to lose weight? You probably know that your diet plays a big role in achieving your goals, but losing weight and keeping it off is no easy task.

It can be challenging trying to sift through all the nutritional information, and it can be even more challenging trying to stick to the eventual diet plan. The good news? You don’t have to do it alone.

Heather Kennedy, PA-C, and our team at Refine Medical in Oklahoma City specialize in medically supervised weight loss management. We can work with you to create a nutritional plan that supports your weight loss goals. Here’s how it works.

Start with a complete health assessment

Our team has a deep understanding of the complex factors that influence weight loss, from your overall health and metabolism to your unique lifestyle factors. Your customized program starts with a thorough assessment of your health status.

We do a physical exam, evaluate your medical history, and assess any underlying conditions that may affect your weight loss journey. By gathering this essential information, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your individual needs, and we start designing your nutritional plan accordingly.

Get personalized, evidence-based nutritional guidance

With the abundance of diet fads and conflicting nutrition information available online, it can be challenging to determine what advice is legitimate and what’s not. Working with our team ensures you get appropriate, evidence-based nutritional guidance. 

We have the expertise to separate fact from fiction and give you reliable information that’s appropriate for your weight loss plan.

Learn your unique caloric requirements

Based on your health assessment, we identify your optimal caloric intake target for your weight loss goals. We consider factors like your current weight, height, activity level, and overall health to create a realistic and sustainable caloric deficit. This personalized approach ensures you're not depriving your body of essential nutrients while still achieving steady weight loss.

Identify any dietary deficiencies

We can also assist you in identifying and addressing any dietary deficiencies. If you have deficiencies, we can recommend appropriate supplements or modifications to your eating plan to help you get all the necessary vitamins and minerals your body needs. We base our recommendations on your age, gender, and existing health conditions.

Find the support you need for lasting success

Last but not least, we provide support and encouragement throughout your weight loss journey. Regular check-ins and follow-up appointments help you stay accountable to your goals and give you the opportunity to ask questions along the way.

If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of developing a healthy eating plan on your own, our team at Refine Medical can give you the help you need. We can partner with you to help you achieve your weight loss goals in a safe and sustainable manner.
