The Women’s Medical Connection of New Jersey feel very strongly that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight are an important rt of a woman’s health. Medical weight loss is a physician supervised weight management program based on medical science. Rather than using diet pills, surgery, crash diets or short-term gimmicks, medical weight loss solutions target the primary causes of weight gain and obesity in order to accomplish a sustainable, healthy weight and lifestyle. Medical weight loss also considers obesity to be a treatable medical condition (like high blood pressure or diabetes) and not a weakness. Data suggests that physicians are in the best position to help people lose weight.
