Why Metabolic Testing is Pivotal to Successful Weight Loss

Do you desperately want or need to lose weight for your health? Does every new diet, pill, or exercise machine promise the moon but fall short of your goals? Say goodbye to fad diets and bottles of laxatives dressed up like herbal remedies: Medically guided weight loss is the safest, most reliable way to drop weight and keep it off for good.

At Nova Physician Wellness Center in Ashburn and Fairfax, Virginia, our team of experts led by Dr. Rohit Suri can help you regain control over your weight in a safe, sane, and healthy way. Our weight loss program is called life transforming for a reason. 

How does medical weight loss work?

With a medically based program, the guesswork gets taken out of the equation. At Nova Physician Wellness Center, we know every person's physiology, metabolism, and lifestyle are different.

When you start your medical weight loss program, we conduct a bioelectrical impedance test that can give a better picture of your actual body composition. We may also do lab tests, which include your blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, thyroid profile, lipid panel, and inflammatory markers.

Of these, the metabolic panel is one of the most important, because it can help your medical team discover your unique physiology and pinpoint exactly how many calories would keep you at your current weight. Your basic metabolic rate can be the foundation upon which your treatment plan is built. 

From there, it's easier to calculate how many calories to cut. When you operate on a medically sound “calories in, calories out” model, your weight loss can be more assured. You’ll also be more able to maintain good nutrition and keep your energy levels high without fatigue taking over or unnecessary snacking. 

What will my weight loss plan include?

Depending on your current weight, goal weight, and health status, your weight loss plan could be as simple as a clear daily nutrition and exercise plan supplemented with medically advised appetite suppressants. 

For obesity, your plan could include meal replacement options, a more rigorous diet plan, and counseling for psychological aspects of your weight gain which can make it difficult to lose weight.

Dr. Suri will work closely with you to pinpoint the perfect approach and advise you on the results of your metabolic testing to encourage you with your calorie consumption goals.
