Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take the weight loss medication if I have high blood pressure?
The final decision on treatment is made by the nurse practitioner you will be seeing; however, as long as your blood pressure is controlled, with medication, it's usually fine.
How old do you have to be to become a patient?
You have to be 18, without parental consent; however, we can treat patient as young as 16 with parental consent.
How do I know if I'm drinking enough water?
A good general rule to follow is to drink 1 ounce of water, per 2 pounds of body weight, daily. So, just take your weight, cut it in half, then say the word ounces instead of pounds (for example: if you weigh 200 pounds you need 100 ounces of water a day, if you weigh 150 pounds you need 75 ounces of water a day.....so forth and so on.).
How many calories should I eat per day to obtain optimal weight loss?
The average woman should consume around 1200 calories a day, and the average man should consume 1500 calories a day when dieting. You should also aim for 100 carbohydrates or less, and at least 100 grams of protein a day. You can find calorie menus and other resources by visiting https://www.imaginemedispa.com/wellness-portal
I'm not eating hardly anything and i'm still not losing weight; what am I doing wrong?
It's important to make sure you are taking in enough calories. when I person is not taking in enough calories, their body goes into starvation mode and the metabolism drastically slows down (as a protective mechanism). Women should aim for 1200 calories a day and men should aim for 1500 calories a day, but neither should go below 1000 calories a day or the body's metabolism with slow down. I suggest you keep a food diary tracking everything you take in, no mater how big or small the item is, to make sure you are staying within these ranges.
