How is Youthful MD’s weight loss program different?
Youthful MD helps you stay accountable and engaged with your weight loss journey through weight loss monitoring. Depending on your personalized program, this may include a remote monitoring scale that syncs with your account and automatically sends your updated metrics to your Youthful MD provider. They can then use this info in your next virtual visit to make adjustments to your program and help you continue to see results.
Will I be prescribed medication for my weight loss?
This depends on your program and your goals. Some patients choose the Signature package with no medications to receive educational videos, recipes, support, and accountability. Many patients, however, will opt for a program that includes medically-proven supplements and/or injections that boost safe, rapid weight loss. Your Youthful MD provider can help you understand your options and the best weight loss medication(s) for you.
Who can benefit from Youthful MD’s weight loss programs?
Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) over 25 who wants to lose fat and get healthier is a potential candidate for Youthful MD’s weight loss programs. To find out if you can benefit from the Weight Loss Roadmap or Weight Loss in a Box, go to our weight loss page, fill out a bit of information about your medical history, and schedule a virtual visit.
On Average, how much will I lose in 1 month?
