Weight Optimization Therapy Q&A

Weight gain often happens when you eat more calories than you burn during the day. However, the exact causes of your weight gain may be more complex than an imbalance in your calorie intake. Dr. Ramos evaluates your personal history, lifestyle, and other factors, that might be contributing to your weight problems; these include:

  • Hormone imbalance or disorder (polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid/cortisol conditions)
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Inadequate sleep
  • A lack of physical activity
  • Certain medications
  • Environmental toxin exposure
  • Food sensitivity also is a problem for weight loss
  • Underlying health conditions (congestive heart failure, metabolic syndrome)

In many cases, weight gain comes from more than one factor. Dr. Ramos helps you connect the dots to create a more successful weight-loss plan just for you.

Following an initial evaluation and exam, Dr. Ramos creates a personalized weight-loss plan to help you reach your goals safely. Depending on the contributing causes of your weight, your plan might include:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Body Comp Analysis
  • Stress management
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
  • Medication initiation or adjustments – peptides, and more will be offered based on your needs
  • Suggestions for physical activity and stress relief management options

As you participate in your weight-loss plan, you’ll check in regularly with Dr. Ramos. She helps you stay motivated and can adjust your plan if you don’t see results.

You might explore the idea of weight loss because you feel that it will improve your body image, as many people do. However, there are also numerous health benefits associated with losing weight, especially if you do it with the help of a doctor.

With less body fat, you significantly reduce your chances of:

  • Heart and brain diseases
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes and other metabolic disorders
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Mood disorders

If you already have one or more of these conditions, losing weight can help ease your symptoms. You might also experience other benefits after losing weight, including better mobility, a better mood, and a more active social life.
