Our adolescent program is designed to help overweight children and teens begin developing healthy eating and lifestyle habits.
At ThinfastMD, we recognize that childhood obesity has become a severe problem in the United States. Our adolescent weight loss program is medically supervised to provide the support and motivation necessary to both children and parents.
We work closely with our patients, making sure to follow the success and setbacks of each adolescent as they progress toward their weight loss goal. Our approach to medically supervised weight loss is an individualized and personalized one. We pay close attention to each of our patients and understand that every individual requires a different method to lose weight. This is true for adults and children alike.
The adolescent medical weight loss program at ThinfastMD involves the utmost care and supervision for your child’s health and safety. Before entering our program, every adolescent undergoes a full medical screening to ensure that they can safely participate in our medical weight loss system.
Throughout the course of this program, your child will also be invited to participate in follow-up sessions with our Registered Dietician. This will help promote weight loss by ensuring your child’s overall health. These follow-up sessions also generally provide the motivation and support necessary to help children reach their weight loss goals.
At ThinfastMD, we want to help your child lose weight by teaching them to develop a healthy relationship with food, one that will follow them into adulthood. For this reason, we focus on educating parents and children to promote healthy habits throughout the entire home.
Being healthy together as a family is likely to help your child develop much healthier eating habits than they would otherwise accomplish dieting alone. In addition to teaching proper nutrition, we encourage healthy lifestyle changes that will help you and your family lose weight and become healthier. This includes increased physical activity, better sleeping habits, and regaining control over calorie consumption by stopping mindless eating.
