Many of our patients will reverse titrate with their medication and slowly come off of it, or drop down to a lower maintenance dosage that they stay at for 4-12 months. You do not have to do either of these, but it may ease some of the urges for celebratory eating after losing the weight you wanted.
Don't change a lot! Make small incremental changes after any diet, make note of any issues you find when you add things back into your diet so you know what to expect prior to eating them again.
We want to see less of you......more often, but in the produce section at the supermarket instead of our office! For long-term weight management, diet is 90-95% of the importance, and exercise 5-10%! Adding, or increasing, regular exercise in your life is fantastic for your health. You cannot outwork a bad diet. You've been given tools and guidance to lose weight, now is a great time to show you can eat/be healthy long term!
Everyone stumbles from time to time....we get it. We are here for you if you need help to get back on track!
