Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is my ideal weight?

The easiest and fastest way to determine an ideal weight range is body mass index (BMI) calculation. Your AP Health physician uses a state-of-the-art scale to get your weight and then calculates your BMI based on that. BMI ranges are as follows:

  • Under 18.5: underweight
  • 18.5-24.9: ideal body weight
  • 25-29.9: overweight
  • 30 or higher: obese

If you’re overweight or obese, a medical weight-loss program at AP Health can be extremely beneficial in helping you get down to a healthy weight.

What does a medical weight-loss program include?

At AP Health, medical weight loss is tailored for you. The medical weight-loss program aims to educate and support you throughout your weight-loss journey. You’ll learn meal planning, foods to avoid, and healthy habits to adopt. 

Eligible patients can also take weight-loss medication under the doctor’s guidance, but you don’t need the medication to be successful in the AP Health weight-loss program. Your AP Health physician will tell you if you qualify for weight-loss medication.

The AP Health team can help you learn a whole new approach to eating. The emphasis is a lifestyle change, one that’s going to stick for the long term. Through the weight-loss program, you’ll learn that it’s possible to eat fresh, healthy, and nourishing foods without feeling deprived. You can lose weight, and still eat well, and the AP Health team is ready to show you how.

How do regular appointments support weight loss?

You’ll typically see the AP Health team for regular appointments throughout your weight-loss program. This helps you stay accountable and also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and get the pointers you need to be successful. 
At every medical weight-loss appointment, you’ll check in with the support team, track your progress, and set goals for the future. Once you’ve achieved your ideal weight, you might want to continue coming into AP Health for maintenance visits. Maintaining your new body is much easier when you’ve got a friendly and caring team supporting you!
