A weight loss coach is a person or even a team of people who help an individual stay on track in meeting their weight loss goals. Once the weight loss goals have been achieved, the weight loss coach will be there to help with maintenance. Achieving weight loss goals is important, but avoiding pitfalls after the ideal weight is achieved is just as important. A professional diet counselor can be much like a personal trainer at the gym, except the weight loss coach is an expert in the field of weight loss. The weight loss counselors are there to help with nearly every aspect of a person's weight loss journey.
At Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers in Ashburn, VA, the weight loss coach is actually a whole weight loss team. The doctor is the leader of this team and does the medical analysis necessary to determine which type of weight loss plan suits a patient best. The support staff at the clinic is also an integral part of the weight loss counseling and is always there to answer questions and provide support.
Support staff will typically see the patient on a regular basis, although visit frequency is customized to each patient's needs. The weight loss coaching team will take measurements, take the patient's weight, and talk with the patient about how the weight loss is going overall. Patients who have concerns or questions can rely on their weight loss counseling team to provide answers. Problems like weight loss plateaus, something that could otherwise frustrate a person into giving up, can easily be addressed and overcome with the help of the weight loss counselor. Sometimes small, but specific, changes can make all the difference, and the weight loss coaching team has the experience and knowledge to identify the necessary changes.
*Each patient's experience is unique based on medical conditions and body composition, as each patient's body is different. The amount of weight loss may vary based on these and other variables such as program adherence and metabolic factors.
