FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I HAVE TO BE A SPECIFIC WEIGHT TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR WEIGHT LOSS COUNSELING?
Not at all. We have patients who want to lose 15-20 pounds, others who need to lose 200 pounds or more, and everyone in between. The amount you can lose with counseling tactics will be estimated during your consultation with Dr. Gupta, as will your goals and how to achieve them.
HOW LONG IS THE WEIGHT LOSS COUNSELING PROGRAM?
The length of time you may stay on the counseling program is determined by how much weight you need to lose and how cooperative your body is in this battle. Our goal is to get you to your desired weight as soon as possible so that we can help you keep it off for the rest of your life. Lifestyle counseling is a comprehensive approach to addressing important behavioral changes in one's life. Every suggestion will be tailored to help you achieve this long-term success.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
All of the stops on the emotional rollercoaster—weight loss, yo-yo dieting, weight gain, and emotional eating—are very challenging to leave once you get on. Have you tried every diet out there? Have you ever lost weight, gained weight, or felt like you were doomed to a life of being overweight?
Our self-confidence gradually erodes as a result of focusing on our many failed attempts to lose weight over the years, leaving little mental room for actionable steps to improve our circumstances. If you can relate to this story, weight loss counseling may be right for you.
WHAT IF I NEED ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS TO HELP LOSE WEIGHT?
If lifestyle counseling is not enough to help you reach a healthy weight, Dr. Gupta will assess the need for other types of weight-loss treatments. Prescription medicines can be used to treat overweight and obesity. Vitamin and hormonal shots, when combined with healthy lifestyle changes, may help some people reach their weight goal. For some patients with severe obesity, surgery may be the required treatment route. Because no two patients have the same body, each will also have a unique treatment plan.
ARE COUNSELING SESSIONS CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes. What you say during Lifestyle Counseling is completely confidential and will not be discussed with anyone without your prior permission. This means that confidentiality applies not only to what you tell your doctor, but also to any conclusions or recommendations that your doctor may form as a result of your medical treatment. According to current laws, confidentiality is only violated if a person endangers himself or others.
