Weight Loss Management Q&A

What is weight loss management?

Weight loss management helps you succeed when trying to lose excess body weight. The Aseda Suboxone and Wellness team understands how difficult many people find it to lose weight and offers personalized weight loss management plans that suit every patient’s unique needs.

You could benefit from the team’s expertise in behavioral health, including why you find it hard to stick to a diet and how you can overcome these challenges. You can also feel confident that your provider promotes good physical health. They can identify problems affecting your ability to lose weight (like hypothyroidism) that might need medical treatment.

Why do I need weight loss management?

Weight loss management is for you if you have excess body weight that you can’t lose. The more weight you carry above what’s healthy for your size and body type, the more at risk you are of diseases like:

  • Heart failure
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Certain cancers
  • Gallstones
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Arthritis and other joint problems
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Depression and anxiety

Excess body weight also makes you vulnerable to rashes and infections in the skin folds (intertrigo), fatigue, headaches, foot problems like plantar fasciitis (heel pain), varicose veins, and many other conditions. Losing weight significantly reduces these symptoms and often reverses them.

Some people do well at weight loss without assistance, but most people find it easier with support and guidance. The Aseda Suboxone and Wellness team’s weight loss management programs make the difference between permanent weight loss and having fluctuating weight from failed diets.

What does weight loss management involve?

To prepare an effective weight loss plan, your provider assesses your current weight and health. They do a general medical checkup, review your health history to see what problems might affect weight loss, and then design your treatment around the information.

As mental and behavioral health specialists, the Aseda Suboxone and Wellness team focuses on addressing the underlying psychological reasons for unsuccessful weight loss. 

This could involve attending therapy sessions and using dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) techniques to help you overcome your personal weight loss barriers. Individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, and family therapy are available.

Mindful eating is an essential way of losing weight and staying healthy. At A.S.W, we help patients to identify and recognize the cause of their weight gain. Are they overeating?  Are they eating because they are hungry, out of stress or maybe out of boredom? We assist our patients in identifying true hunger and its typical signs. 

We shed light on the importance of eating for nutrition and health rather than eating solely for self-satisfaction.

We aid patients in creating a pleasurable meal environment while maintaining a healthy diet. We encourage our patients to prepare meals of their own liking with healthy products. 

We assist patients in managing their emotions towards eating, and introduce them to our “5 steps method” of tackling emotional eating. Understanding and reading labels becomes a key component to losing weight.
