    on Sep 19th, 2016

If you’ve been struggling with losing weight and keeping it off, you are not alone. The compassionate experts at Bluepoint Medical Associates can help. Not a candidate for bariatric surgery? Not interested in surgery to treat morbid obesity? Are you tired of feeling sick and tired? Our medical weight loss program might be right for you. Led by board certified internist Chris Ko, our team of experts has a true passion for food, health, and all things wellness.

Why is Medical Weight Loss Effective?

Medical weight loss is effective because it involves bringing all aspects of your physical health—nutrition, exercise, mental and emotional health, and wellness— into one program. It allows for more gradual weight loss over time and it focuses on changing behaviors so that you can enjoy healthy weight maintenance long term. We’ll help identify key triggers to overeating, and once we identify those we can help you change those behaviors into healthier habits. We’ll also work with you to get an understanding of what your metabolic rate is – how efficiently you burn calories – and show you ways to increase your metabolic rate without feeling hungry all the time.

You’ll learn about nutrition from our registered dietitians, who have expert knowledge in areas such as food allergies, thyroid disease, eating disorders, bariatric surgery, pre-diabetes diets, Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, PCOS, infertility, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Celiac disease, GERD, and other gastrointestinal disorders.

Will I Get a Personalized Lifestyle Plan That Really Works?

Yes! Your personalized lifestyle plan will take pre-existing medical conditions, physical or mental limitations, cultural preferences and personal lifestyle choices into consideration. All of these things work together to support your weight loss and maintenance. Our physicians, clinicians, dietitians, and support staff are dedicated to your long-term success and are committed to providing you with all the tools, resources, education, and support you need to reach and maintain your weight loss goals.

Bluepoint Medical Associates serves Maryland, Virginia, and the Washington, D.C. areas, and is one of the most respected medical weight loss programs in the region. The medical weight loss program at Bluepoint Medical Associates is specially designed to address your personal struggles, challenges, and nutritional issues. No two programs are alike because no two individuals are alike.
