When should I seek professional help for weight loss?

You should seek professional help for weight loss at MyJourneyMD if you struggle to lose weight or keep it off following commercial diet plans. Diet and exercise are vital components of any good weight loss program. However, changing your diet and increasing your level of activity isn’t always enough.

Many factors influence your weight and ability to lose weight, including your age, sex, and genes. Most commercial diet plans fail to provide long-term results because they don’t take into consideration the individual factors that affect your weight.

Dr. Williams customizes your weight loss plan, taking into account the unique aspects of your health and medical history so you can reach your weight loss goals. 

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

You can expect personalized care from medical weight loss at MyJourneyMD. Dr. Williams conducts a thorough medical history review before making any recommendations. 

She helps you identify your problem areas and creates a goal-driven plan. Dr. Williams uses the wellness platforms Fullscript™ and Well ProZ to help you stay on track. 

Depending on your health issues and goals, Dr. Williams may include hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or peptide therapy in your weight loss plan. Changes in your body’s hormone and peptide levels may make it harder to lose weight. These therapies restore levels, supporting your weight loss efforts. Gut and liver health is also very important and may be addressed.

One of MyJourneyMD patient's most popular choice of peptides for weight loss is semaglutide. This FDA approved medication is proving to greatly help our patient's finally achieve their weight loss goals.
