For instance, while it makes sense that eating less will result in weight loss, many people struggle with diets because they cause or contribute to underlying nutritional deficiencies that can result in virtually undeniable cravings and the desire to overeat.

Eating plans are nutritionally balanced and developed for the patient's individual needs and preferences, and patients are closely supervised to ensure their weight loss plan evolves as their needs change. Medical weight management plans are especially important for managing the health needs of patients with chronic issues like high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

By the third phase, many patients are able to reduce or eliminate medications and enjoy healthier happier lives.
