Physician Supervised Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is physician-supervised medical weight loss?

Physician-supervised medical weight loss is a weight loss approach backed by science. Dr. Chastanet brings three decades of experience as an internist to her practice and is passionate about guiding patients through their weight loss journey. 

As the name implies, this approach provides physician guidance. That means your health remains the central focus from the moment you enter the office through your maintenance phase.

Dr. Chastanet, as a board certified obesity specialist, can help you develop a high protein, low carbohydrate diet that aligns with your lifestyle. While the initial detoxification diet is very restrictive of carbohydrates, the goal is to embrace a healthier way of life that is sustainable over the long term. There is no need to purchase expensive supplements or packaged food, nor do we encourage obsessive calorie counting, or food tracking.

What happens during physician-supervised medical weight loss?

Your initial visit will take two to three full hours. You’ll share the details of your personal and family health history, including your previous diet efforts, and undergo a physical examination. This information helps the doctor know the right course to take in crafting your customized weight loss program. 

During each subsequent visit, you’ll receive education on health topics relevant to your care. That information empowers you to take ownership of your own weight loss path. Your team is here to support and assist you as needed, but the ultimate goal is for you to take the reins and sustain a healthy weight on your own. 

What weight loss tools are available?

In certain circumstances, weight loss medications can play a role in your journey. Dr. Chastanet and her staff are trained and experienced in the use of medications to help you lose weight, and they understand which current medications may be hindering your progress.

In addition to our uniquely successful curriculum, derived over more than a decade of research and practical experience, we use a low carbohydrate diet and lifestyle plan with plenty of high-quality protein. Learn more about our low carbohydrate approach here.

As you approach your goal weight, Chesapeake Weight Loss & Aesthetics offers a number of treatments that can refine the contours of your body, improve your muscle mass and address loose or sagging skin. These treatments can help you feel great about how you look, which is an important part of your success story.
