Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management is a customized weight loss plan tailored to your needs and goals. At Moore Healthcare Group, Dr. Moore supervises your plan as you make progress throughout your weight loss journey. 

He also helps you focus on your goals and stay motivated through follow-up visits, ensuring that you receive all the support you need to achieve your goal weight. 

Why is it hard to lose weight?

You may be struggling to lose weight and keep it off for many reasons. It may be because your weight loss diet is too difficult to stick to long-term, or you don’t have the energy to exercise. Health issues can also hinder your weight loss efforts, including chronic stress, hormonal changes, and mental health challenges.

How does weight management work?

After an evaluation at Moore Healthcare Group, Dr. Moore develops a personalized weight management plan for you. He reviews your medical history, lifestyle habits, medication regimen, and other health problems that might make weight management difficult. 

Your weight management plan may include: 

Dietary changes


Eating a balanced diet that is high in fiber and low in saturated fat can give your body the nutrients it needs to perform and thrive.  

Exercise guidance


Exercise is an essential part of any weight loss plan. If you don’t know where to begin, Dr. Moore can help you develop the habit of regularly exercising with guidance and advice. You don’t have to participate in intense workouts, and may benefit from walking, swimming, or other activities that increase your physical activity. 


Dr. Moore can recommend exercises that suit your level of fitness and preferences.  

Appetite suppressants 


Appetite suppressants are prescribed medications that reprogram your body into thinking it’s satiated or full. If medications are necessary for your weight management plan, Dr. Moore can send prescriptions to your pharmacy of choice. 

What are the benefits of weight management?

Some benefits of weight management include:

  • Better quality of life 
  • Reduced risk of diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes 
  • Improved self-esteem 
  • Long-term results
