Medical Weight Management at BucksFit
- Step 1: Proper Nutrition is Paramount
Many weight loss programs incorporate diet management in an effort to lose weight, but our program does not believe in “dieting”. The word “diet” lends itself to the belief that a short-term change in eating habits will lead to quick weight loss. Not only is this belief ineffective in long term maintenance of weight loss, but it can negatively affect your health as well. Our team of physicians and registered dieticians will create a prescribed comprehensive lifestyle change to your current eating habits to promote healthy weight loss and long-term maintenance of you desired weight.
- Step 2: Weight Loss Is Enhanced Through Exercise
Frequently lacking in a weight loss program is the fundamental concept of “burning off calories”. BucksFit stresses the exercise component of weight loss by bringing together a state-of-the-art Fitness Center and Exercise Specialists to ensure exercise is part of the lifestyle change.
- Psychological/Behavioral Intervention
A psychological assessment is the last element of our program. This is often overlooked but is a highly crucial component of weight loss. Stress, depression, binge-eating and anxiety-related disorders play a significant role in an individual’s ability to lose weight. At BucksFit a comprehensive screen is part of the initial assessment and our team psychologist is readily available to assess and counsel our members to achieve their optimal weight loss.
