Weight Loss Q & A

What causes weight gain?

Weight gain is often a complex medical issue that doesn’t have one clear cause. Diet and exercise undoubtedly play a role in weight management, but many other factors can contribute to weight fluctuations.

Most people don’t know if they’re at a healthy weight. For many people, weight tends to creep on with age. Other factors that contribute to weight gain may include:

  • High-stress levels
  • A sedentary lifestyle or job
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Chronic illnesses
  • Blood sugar imbalances

Dr. Capobianco can help you lose weight and address the unique factors that may be contributing to your weight gain in the first place.

How does medical weight loss work?

Medical weight loss is a vastly different approach than your typical diet- or exercise-based weight loss plan. At the Doctors Center at Red Rock, Dr. Capobianco is trained in obesity medicine and will guide you through an evidence-based, personalized approach to losing weight.

Your journey begins with a comprehensive review of your health history, a complete physical, body measurements, and body mass index or body fat percentage calculations.

Taking into account your experience with other diet programs, your goals, your challenges, and your overall health needs, Dr. Capobianco creates a detailed plan to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

His plans include dietary recommendations, an exercise plan, and ― in some cases ― prescription medications or supplements like phentermine or vitamin B12 shots, which help to suppress your appetite and raise your energy levels.

What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?
