What is weight loss management?

Weight loss management uses a combination of healthy lifestyle changes and routine checkups to help you achieve your ideal weight. More than 70% of Americans 20 and older are overweight or obese. 

Who should consider weight loss management?

Consider weight loss management at LiveMed if you have any of the following health problems:

  • Back or neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis

You might also be a candidate for weight loss management if you’ve been diagnosed with a behavioral disorder, such as anxiety or depression.

What does weight loss management involve?

At LiveMed, the team tailors weight loss management to each patient’s needs. Your provider might recommend:

Nutritional guidance

Eating a healthy and balanced diet can help you lose weight. One of the best diets for weight loss is the ketogenic or “keto” diet. By eating foods that are high fat but low calorie, you can achieve a metabolic state called ketosis. Ketosis helps you burn fat rapidly while reducing your blood sugar and insulin levels.

Intermittent fasting

During intermittent fasting, you extend the time between your meals and snacks. Fasting for short periods, you eat fewer calories and achieve your weight loss goals. Research also shows that it can reduce your risk of certain illnesses, like diabetes and heart disease.


Losing weight and keeping it off requires you to burn calories regularly. Moving your body for at least 30 minutes daily can help boost your metabolism and complement your new diet. The team at LiveMed can recommend exercises that align with your current abilities. That might mean cycling, lifting weights, or swimming.

Weight-loss medications 

In addition to the above, when appropriate, LiveMed prescribes ground-breaking new weight loss medications to supplement the weight loss.

What does weight loss management cost?

At LiveMed, the team strives to make weight loss management affordable.

The initial consultation costs $99.99. During the visit, your provider reviews your health charts, asks about your goals, and completes a physical exam. They also order lab tests, including bloodwork and urinalysis, to gain insights into your health.

After gathering the necessary information, the team develops a custom weight loss management plan.

Follow-up visits cost $70.00. At each checkup, your provider monitors your progress, collects additional lab work, and adjusts your treatment plan as necessary.
