Weight Loss Q & A

Why is it Important to Maintain a Healthy Weight?

When you’re overweight, you’re at a higher risk for a variety of serious conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and cancer. You may also struggle with low self-esteem and depression. To keep yourself as healthy as possible, you should strive to maintain an appropriate weight throughout your life.

How Does MyMD Medical Group Approach Weight Loss?

Up to 97 percent of people who lose weight will regain it within three years, which makes professional weight loss services a valuable tool to ensure success. Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa strive to help you lose weight and maintain your results. Their goal is to help each patient take control of their health, weight, self-image, and confidence.

A variety of factors contribute to weight gain, including lifestyle choices, body composition, and hormone levels. Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa understand that a templated, one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss doesn’t work for everyone. Instead, Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa design individualized weight loss programs to meet the needs of each patient. These programs encourage positive lifestyle changes that will continue even after you’ve reached your goal weight.

What is Included in the Weight Loss Program?

Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa incorporate the following components into every weight loss program:

  • Sugar Addiction Treatment: Your weight loss program will be designed to help you overcome your addiction to sugar and gain control over cravings
  • Meal Frequency and Timing: You will learn to eat the right foods at the right times to lose weight faster
  • Sleep and Stress Counseling: Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Alexandra Sowa will help you reduce your stress and improve your sleep habits
  • Hormone Optimization: Specialized testing will identify any imbalances in your hormones and proper treatment will be recommended
  • Accountability: Your weight loss program will include follow-up visits and ongoing monitoring to keep you on the right track


How Long Will It Take to Lose Weight?

The goal of weight loss programs at MyMD Medical Group is to help patients lose weight safely and keep it off. The duration of treatment varies according to the individual and their goals. However, consistency and commitment to the program is more important than quick results. As long as you’re making progress, you shouldn’t focus as much on the speed of your weight loss.
