Weight Management Q&A

Why don’t fad diets work?

You’ve probably seen — or tried — fad diets that claim to help you quickly shed unwanted pounds. Many people may lose weight initially on these diets. Within a few months, however, they’ve added the pounds back on. That's because these diets don't require an integrative, science-based approach that's the secret to lasting weight loss.

What is science-based weight management?

Optimal Health Miami provides highly personalized and effective weight-loss programs for men and women. Unlike fad diets, the weight management programs at Optimal Health Miami were developed by a highly skilled team of physicians, nurse practitioners and a registered dietitian.

These programs are based on actual medical science — and yield actual, lasting results. Many patients at Optimal Health Miami achieve dramatic weight loss. They also experience significant improvements in their overall health and wellness using Optimal Health Miami’s individualized weight-loss programs.

What are the benefits of weight management?

The patient-centered weight-loss programs at Optimal Health Miami focus on two goals:

  • Losing weight
  • Improving lean body mass (the ratio of fat and muscle)

The programs offer many benefits over trendy diets and faddish workouts, such as helping you to:

  • Reach a healthy weight
  • Keep excess weight off for good
  • Achieve optimal energy levels
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Increase sexual intimacy and performance
  • Regain mental sharpness

Maintaining a healthy weight is also good for your long-term health because being overweight increases your risk for serious health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke.

What is the right weight management plan for me?

Dr. Gittelman and the team at Optimal Health Miami create a personalized weight-loss program tailored to your individual needs. The program combines three important elements:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Hormonal balance

Apart from emphasizing these three elements, your weight management plan may include therapies to boost your metabolism, such as injections of vitamin B12, peptide therapy to stimulate the production of growth hormone naturally, and high-quality probiotics to improve gut health.

Optimal Health Miami provides a full-time registered dietician on staff to create customized meal plans to help you achieve and maintain your target weight.
