Weight Loss Q & A

Am I a good candidate for a weight-loss plan?

If you have tried and failed many weight-loss diets in the past, you may want to consider getting help from the team at Gaffney Health Services. Dr. Gaffney determines if you’re a good candidate for her weight-loss program after a comprehensive evaluation that includes a review of your weight and health history, your weight-loss goals, and a physical exam. Dr. Gaffney and her team may also talk to you about the barriers that make it so hard for you to keep the weight off.

What can I expect from a weight-loss plan?

You may struggle to keep the weight off following most diet plans because they don’t take you into consideration. Dr. Gaffney’s weight-loss plan is designed just for you and takes into account your health and wellness needs, your weight loss goals, and your personal struggles. Plus, you get ongoing professional support as you lose the weight to help you manage roadblocks or setbacks

Do I need to follow a special diet to lose weight?

What you eat is an important part of any weight-loss plan. Dr. Gaffney designs a diet plan that supports both your health and weight-loss goals. To lose weight, you need to create a negative calorie balance, which is accomplished by eating fewer calories, increasing your activity, or a combination of both.

You can eat fewer calories and still feel satisfied when following Dr. Gaffney’s weight-loss plan. She and her team teach you how to select foods that not only nourish your body, but help control your appetite.
