Weight Management & Nutrition Healthcare With Integrity - Quality - Wisdom

Irving Weight Management & Nutrition

Personalized Weight Loss Solutions

The conversation surrounding obesity is changing. Too many times, patients with excess weight have had their medical problems brushed aside with the explanation that they just “need to lose weight.” Although obesity is linked to many health problems, we believe it is essential to understand and address the whole patient – not only the number on the scale.

Managing weight takes many forms. Some people may picture shedding all of their excess pounds and transforming into a slim, muscular athlete, but in reality, healthy weight management simply involves maintaining healthy eating patterns and regular exercise regimen to naturally reach the ideal weight for their body type. The details are different for everyone, which is why our team at Academic Medical provides personalized weight management and nutrition counseling. Our approach is meant to form a long-term lifestyle foundation, rather than a temporary "diet plan". Thus, we do not prescribe or endorse supplements, "fad diets", or weight-loss shakes in our practice.

Before starting, an Irving weight management doctor will perform a thorough assessment that covers:

  • Your medical history
  • Your diet
  • Your family history
  • Medications you are taking
  • Surgeries or intensive medical procedures you have had in the past
  • Basic information on your body's endocrine system (hormones)

If you are looking for sound, evidence-based treatment, contact us to get in touch with the Irving weight management doctors at Academic Medical Associates today at (972) 445-9515.
