The Truth About Medical Weight Loss Programs

At Rauch Wellness and Aesthetics, we find that many of our patients in the Boca Raton, Delray Beach area turn to us after years of trying to lose weight through exercise alone, fad diets, or even potentially dangerous over-the-counter diet aids and supplements. A true medical weight loss program uses evidence-based, physician-supervised treatments along with a carefully designed food regimen to produced safe, rapid, and sustainable weight loss. Doctor supervised weight loss does not involve expensive and painful surgeries or diet pills that may temporarily speed up your metabolism but fail to address the underlying metabolic issues causing the weight gain.

Doctor Supervised Weight Loss vs. Traditional Diets:

A quick internet search will turn up a wide array of diets that promise rapid weight loss with minimal effort. While some of these fad diets may produce impressive results initially, it is usually water weight that simply returns once you return to your normal eating habits. Diets that rely on only eating certain foods or that eliminate certain foods altogether cannot realistically be maintained over the long-term and deprive your body of necessary nutrients. Detox diets are growing in popularity but are generally not backed by scientific evidence. If your liver and kidneys are healthy, they already do an excellent job of ridding your body of harmful toxins. Repeated cleanses and flushes may even damage your hepatic and renal systems. Fasting and traditional low-calorie diets are not only unsustainable, but they can also hinder your effort to lose weight by slowing down your body’s metabolism. This is why many Boca Raton and Delray Beach residents are exploring doctor supervised weight loss.

At Rauch Wellness and Aesthetics, we specialize in the Clean Start Weight Loss® program. This scientifically based, doctor supervised weight loss program uses a combination hormone and fat-burner injections, vitamins, and a detailed food plan to reset your metabolism and jump-start your weight loss over the course of 12 weeks. Although you do have to follow strict calorie and food requirements for a few weeks, you are free to eat anything you want within moderation once you complete the program.
