Weight Loss Q & A

How does Dr. Sandoval’s weight-loss program differ from others I’ve tried?

Forget calorie counting and pre-packaged meals. As a long-time proponent of women’s health, Dr. Sandoval’s weight-loss program is designed to teach daily habits and easy tips to improve your overall health, with the ultimate goal of living longer and feeling better. The aim is not merely a diet that’ll help you lose weight for 6 months and then regain those pounds, and more, a year later. This program fosters permanent lifestyle changes that will incorporate healthy eating and exercise habits.

Does This Weight-Loss Program Include Medication?

If deemed medically appropriate, Dr. Sandoval can prescribe medication, such as an appetite suppressant or medication that prevents the absorption of all the fat into the body. Medication can help patients jump-start their weight-loss, but ultimately long-term success is contingent on following the lifestyle adjustments taught in our program.

How Can I Ensure that I Will Keep Off the Weight I Lose?

Since our program is all about understanding food and nutritional facts about everything you eat, the goal is to embrace new habits as part of an overall new, healthy lifestyle. To that end, Dr. Sandoval can recommend excellent health coaching staff to help support you as long as is necessary.
