Dr. Skversky practiced as a family physician for over 22 years prior to the start of his full-time bariatrics practice. The staff believes that although diet and exercise will always be extremely important, the use of medication for both appetite and craving control can be necessary for a large number of patients. This applies to not only to losing weight but also to maintaining weight loss for the long-term. Medications are used in combination with diet plans and exercise regimens to reduce appetite, control cravings, improve insulin sensitivity, and lower the metabolic set-point. Weight No More also stresses high protein, low carbohydrate, and low fat eating for nearly all patients. In general, the office places little emphasis on actual calorie counting, exchange lists, and specific diets. Focusing rather on encouraging sensible eating habits with helpful hints, guidelines, and suggestions for meals. The practice also encourages exercise in any form. Consistency will be the key to success. In most cases, exercise won’t seem like it is having an effect on weight loss and maintenance for several months and patients will need to stick at it to see visible changes over time. Major benefits include cardiovascular conditioning, body toning, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, increasing HDLs, and an overall sense of wellbeing. Exercise is an amazing tool when used regularly. The practice sees patients on a monthly basis when working toward weight loss goals. Weight No More welcomes all new patients and looks forward to helping you on your weight loss journey.
